THE NAME’S BRONDE

The hottest hair colour trend in town

Hair - - Front Page -

Move over reds and plums, as ‘bronde’ takes the cen­tre stage. We’re telling you why this hot new hue is per­fect for you.

What is ‘bronde’?

Hold on… Be­fore you get all worked up think­ing bronde is an all-new colour pal­ette, let us tell you this is not the case. It’s sim­ply a port­man­teau of the words, brown and blonde! While typ­i­cally brown and blonde hair colours have ex­isted in­di­vid­u­ally, this new trend brings the two to­gether, where the look con­sists of a com­bi­na­tion of rich cho­co­late brown with caramel blonde (yum!) to cre­ate a flat­ter­ing sun-kissed colour. ‘Bronde’ has man­aged to catch the fancy of women the world over, whether it is women with brown hair opt­ing for blonde high­lights and baby­lights, or the blonde-haired ex­per­i­ment­ing with hints of brown.

Why we love it?

This hue not only adds that dash of fun and ra­di­ance to the hair but also works fab­u­lously well to com­ple­ment warmer skin tones like In­dian skin. It is the per­fect way to add blonde to your tresses with­out opt­ing for the over-the-top plat­inum; we saw what hap­pened with Kim Kar­dashian’s re­cent trip to blonde and back! Another great ad­van­tage is that it is very low main­te­nance, which means you don’t have to go run­ning back to the sa­lon for re-colour­ing ev­ery few weeks! You can let your brown roots grow out and even­tu­ally even have that chic, darker roots look. It’s also com­mon knowl­edge that high­lights or baby­lights with a blonde shade can give your hair that sub­tle ra­di­ance, al­low­ing light to bounce off your hairdo gor­geously. Don’t you love it al­ready?

Achiev­ing a bronde that suits you

The key to suc­cess­fully achiev­ing this colour is to have your nat­u­ral or cho­sen base colour show­ing through re­ally well, so it is im­por­tant to con­sult your stylist who can then rec­om­mend the brown and blonde tones to suit your spe­cific skin tone. You can opt for thicker blonde sec­tions at the tips, high­lights just on the crown area or even try baby­lights of the golden shade through­out; the play­ing field is wide open, it’s re­ally just about what you’re com­fort­able with.

On the red car­pet

This com­bi­na­tion of hues is mak­ing waves both in sa­lons and on the red car­pet. Celebri­ties flaunt­ing bronde in­clude Jes­sica Biel, Blake Lively, Jen­nifer Lopez, Cara Delev­ingne, Sarah Jes­sica Parker, Me­gan Fox and many oth­ers. In fact, Blake, a nat­u­ral blonde, is a self-con­fessed ‘bronde con­vert’, while Sarah who has donned this look for a while now is even known as the ‘Queen of bronde’!

So, when are you get­ting your bronde on?

Opt for thicker blonde sec­tions at the tips, high­lights on the crown or even baby­lights; the play­ing field is wide open, it’s just about what you’re com­fort­able with.
