17 Shades of Blonde For Your Inspiration

Are you in search for your next hair colour? Itโ€™s hard to pick a preference when it comes to shades. We could just as easily get lost in a sea of beautiful brunettes as we are in this brilliant blonde overload. Search for “blonde hair inspo” on Pinterest and you’ll be endlessly scrolling .

Blonde is always going to be a winner, but where do you start? there are so many shades of blonde to choose from, do you go golden, ashy or platinum? And once you’ve picked the perfect hue, you have to decide whether you want highlights, balayage, all over dye or ombre… it’s incredibly confusing.

We have saved you a little bit of bother by accumulating a list of our top inspiration created by our very own Rush Family.

1) Butter Blonde

Whether it a full head, highlights or ombre this warm and buttery shade of blonde is stunning.
