yellow

This dark earthy gold hue is an ancient pigment with a deep sunny golden hue. It adds earthy warmth to skin and provides a gorgeous contrast for both light and dark eye colors. It’s a deep blonde, but lighter than bronde, and the warm tone makes it feel brighter than dishwater shades. You may be tempted to add more gold to the formula, but it’s not necessary. The natural remaining pigments from lifting contribute a perfect dose of sunny yellow-gold. Click the style notes for application tips and the professional formulation. –– Laura Martin

The warm, spicy hue of a mustard seed is a lovely, earth copper gold. It’s a sun-drenched shade, one that feels just right paired with a dusting of freckles or the first rosy glow of spring cheek color. It’s a natural looking highlight for dark blonde and light brown shades, or a beautiful single process. It’s especially flattering paired with pale blue or gray eyes, which look against the warm color. Click the style notes for the formula and tips on application. –– Laura Martin

Winter can be a hard season for blondes. Blonde just isn’t usually very cozy, and while it looks great with tanned skin and beachy waves, in the winter it can seem washed-out or bland. This richly spiced bronde shade is the perfect solution. The complex color has a neutral base dusted with hints or warm spice for a gorgeous hue that’s cozy but light, like a fluffy bowl of porridge.
