Vanilla blonde is a soft, warm, yet still sparklingly bright blonde – perfect for sunny summer days (or lack thereof). The colour balances cool and warm tones perfectly- it has all the intense brightness of platinum, but with the warm summery goodness of more honey-toned shades. Overall, the colour is super creamy and luxe, and gives us major 90’s supermodel vibes. Vanilla blonde can vary in warmth – so looks great both on natural blondes looking to refresh their colour, but also with brunettes wanting to take the leap to blonde for summer.
Vanilla blonde is already this summer’s hottest hair color
When Selena Gomez, Billie Eilish, and Dylan Sprouse hop on a hair trend, you know it has to be cool. Recently, a bunch of our fave celebs have been ditching their signature colours for this season’s hottest new colour on the block: vanilla blonde. And honestly, although we’ll sorely miss Billie’s iconic green and black ‘do and Selena’s glossy brunette locks, we’re not mad about it. Why? Because this shade is kind of to die for.
The world of blonde hair might have been dominated by icy cool shades and white-silver tones over the past few years, but we’re so ready for the light, warm update that this summer promises to bring. Vanilla blonde goes perfectly with warmer, sunny weather – and if that doesn’t arrive (and let’s be honest, that’s a very real possibility at this rate), then opting for this oh-so-summery shade is the perfect way to pretend.
