If you’re the kind of girl that would prefer to spend the day at the beach rather than a day at the salon, we’ve got some good news.
Going blonde this summer doesn’t have to mean recurring bleach touch-ups and non-stop toning, because this year the shade du jour is just about as low-maintenance as it gets. Wave goodbye to the platinum strands of yesteryear that required a small army to maintain and welcome the all-new dirty blonde style that the A-list are obsessed with.
On the hair colour spectrum, dirty blonde sits smack bang between brunette and blonde. Harnessing different shades from honey to caramel, it can be achieved by keeping a dark base and/or root and integrating lighter shades throughout the rest of the hair.
The best bit? It requires basically zero effort. As a result of the mix of different shades, it means roots tend to blend out a lot more naturally as your hair grows. And if that isn’t enough, because dirty blonde harnesses a more natural trend, you can sit back when it comes to styling too. For days when you can’t be bothered, a spritz of texturizing spray is all you need for effortlessly chic locks.
