Blonde hair and summer are the perfect duo -- there is something so refreshing about going lighter come summer and for 2021 there are plenty of trending blonde hair looks that you’re bound to find one you love.
Summer Blonde Hair Color Trends
Balayage, of course, is here to stay. It’s the perfect summer blonde hair color and it’s the low-commitment way to go blonde since the seamless strands grow out without a harsh root line. In fact balayage can even look better with time.
For those who want a more all-over blonde hair color for summer, there are a few different looks that are trending right now. Of course, it’s never a good idea to blindly follow the trends so work with your hair colorist to find the blonde hair color that suits your eye color, skin tone and lifestyle - some blonde hair requires a lot of upkeep!
Sandy blonde hair is the new expensive-looking way to go blonde, not too ashy or too brassy, this sand-hued hair color is the perfect combination of warm sandy and cool beige tones that can look incredibly beautiful. Alternatively, if you want to go slightly cooler mushroom blonde hair, which has hints of brunette and grey running through it, also looks stunning. Want to go all out? A blanket of pure ice blonde hair is always in style, but it’s a high maintenance color to try.
Maintain Your Summer Blonde Hair
During the summer months, blonde hair requires extra TLC. The sun, sea and chlorine can dehydrate your strands leaving them prone to breakage, the sun’s UV rays can damage your hair (just like it can our skin), while these environmental aggressors can also turn your salon-fresh blonde hair color into a brassy yellow.
Start the summer season by bolstering your hair with an in-salon Fusio Dose hair treatment. Our iconic service starts with a hair diagnosis and consultation that tackles two hair concerns, for blonde hair this is often a lack of nourishment, as well as brittleness. Come the end of summer, a Fusio Dose hair treatment can repair any damage and restore your hair’s vitality, softness and shine.
At home there are two Kérastase hair care collections that are particularly beneficial for blonde hair during the summer. Blond Absolu was formulated especially for all types of blonde hair including those who lighten their hair. The hair products contain a potent combination of hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant Edelweiss flower that deeply nourishes and protects the strands, while the addition in some of the products (like the shampoo and hair masks) of purple pigments neutralizes brassiness for an illuminated, fresh-looking blonde hair color every day.
In the range, you’ll also find a clear hair oil. Did you know golden-hued oils can stain brilliant blonde strands? The oil seals split ends, smooths the strands and offers heat protection up to 450°F. Bolster your blonde hair at night with the Sérum Cicanuit a white cream-in-gel leave-in hair serum, it erases 55% of damage from bleaching while you sleep, for stronger, more resistant strands.
During the summer months, you can alternate your Blond Absolu blonde hair care routine with Soleil summer hair care.
