Bleached and distressed denim originated in the punk movement, but by the nineties, everyone seemed to have stone-washed jeans. The look is created by literally washing heavy material with pumice or other stones to soften the fabric and fade the hue. The method creates a mottled effect that is mostly very pale but with small bits of deeper color along the seams and flecked through the near-white fabric. Translating this look to hair gives an icy blonde base with dishwater roots and a fine smatter of lowlights. Get the formulas and application tips in the style notes. –Laura Martin

Pantone describes this pale gold hue as “mellow, comforting and warming.” It’s reminiscent of soft leather, freshly chopped wood, and harvest-moon light. A cozy, rich shade of blonde that’s perfect for autumn. A dust of highlights provide an extra boost of brightness around the face while a slightly darker root gives the look a lived-in quality.
