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

Lately the softer side of red has trended toward rosy hues: strawberry blonde, apricot, and rose gold. This is the warmer, earthier side of titian, a spicy copper gold redolent of cumin and turmeric. Try it on it’s own as shown in the two pictures on the right, or use it to add sunny hand painted highlights as pictured on the left.

We’ve not seen so much of her lately, but now she’s back with a bang. Lensed for a Louis Vuitton ad campaign, we absolutely adore her platinum blonde hair color. Wearing it with a swooshing side sweep and swirling, mussed up tousle, the style is deliciously imperfect, impossibly beautiful. Paired with an A-line dress, she looks like she was heaven-sent to remind us of the aesthetic beauty of the sixties. Learn about going platinum blonde in the style notes.

The pictured celebs illustrate what we mean; they may not be perfectly suited to all kinds of blonde, but by picking the right tone, they create a wow-factor look.

Platinum Blonde is already being heralded as one of the biggest colors of the year by Refinery 29, Harper’s Bazaar, and Allure, but what exactly is platinum? Is it creamy, silvery, ashy? The term can actually refer to a variety of shades, an entire category of extra-pale colors. In fact, because the level, or value, is very light, the variety of hues is greater than at any other place along the gradient spectrum. This means that platinum offers the widest variety of customization. Click the style notes to learn more about the full spectrum of palest blondes. –– Laura Martin
