How to master the 'bronde' hair trend

hellomagazine.com

Following the success of the ombré and dip dye hair trends, there's a new craze sweeping salons across the nation. This season has seen the biggest hair colourists and models rocking a 'bronde' look – a shade which is neither blonde nor brunette, but sits halfway in between, in multidimensional tones.

"Those wanting to go bronde (without tipping over the edge into full-on blonde), should take the time to find the right tone,’ says Christophe Robin, Global Hair Colourist at L’Oréal Paris. ‘The correct one should be two or, at most, three shades above your natural colour."

We take a look at how to master this season's biggest trend…

When going bronde picking the right tones for your hair is essential

Pick the right shade for you: If you have a tan or green eyes try golden tones in your hair as these can enhance your features. However, if you're quite pale skinned, try sticking to sandy or neutral shades of blonde, as gold can exaggerate pink tones.

For a sun-kissed look: If you're after a slightly matte look as if you've been to the beach, then apply the dye by simply brushing it through the hair in a natural movement to create sparse, natural looking variations in tone.

For a high-shine colour: Apply the colour uniquely to the bottom of your tresses. This will give a chic dip dye effect, perfect for glamorous events this summer.

For an edgy look: Focus the colour around the sections that frame your face and the ends of your locks. The high-contrast effect of this look is sure to turn heads – avoid this if you're trying bronde for the first time as this can be quite a bold look.
