Whatever your natural hair – it is time to bring it a level lighter and brighter: make place for platinum blonde, beach blonde hair lights, dip dye and more!

Sometimes it seems like nothing goes better with cut-off shorts and sandals than a blonde mane or touch of golden highlights—and that’s true whether your natural hair is light or dark. To make things super simple, it’s now easy to bleach your hair at home with no damage, even if you want to go from dark hair to platinum blonde.

1. Dare to go platinum blonde

Take the plunge and going platinum blonde for summer, whether you’re lightening your naturally dark blonde, light brown or medium brown hair. Choose an architectural cut for a super modern feel, or go rocker chic with messy waves.

2. Wear bleached blond hair on your dark roots

Have naturally dark hair but want to go blonde? You’re in luck, because visible roots are hot in the moment. So bleach your locks one time and then wait several months before redoing your roots. You’ll still be perfectly on trend.

5. Hair dye for men: go blonde!

Think an ultra-blonde, platinum or bleached-blonde shade is just for women? Think again. Wear light locks and dark eyebrows with a dose of confidence and you can’t go wrong. But if it turns out you don’t love it, you can go back to your natural colour (or a brand new one altogether) luckily split.
