Planning to go blonde, but don’t know what shade works best for you? Have your pick among these amazing light shades by Asian celebrities. From honey to ash, get inspiration for your next look here.
Finding Your Shade
Here's a quick blonde hair color guide, so you'll know what to ask for on your next color appointment. Blonde shades range from dark to light and warm to cool. These two determine the general shade of your resulting color treatment. Although the process of bleaching your hair is fairly straightforward, remember that after you’ve treated it, you may still need to add color to achieve your desired look. You’ll also need proper after-care products to make sure your hair doesn't end up in a brassy heap. For more on caring for your blonde hair, read about it here.

Hayley Kiyoko’s whimsical voice, playful lyrics, and pop style has shown us she’s not afraid of taking on anything -- going barbie blonde included. Her signature look as of late is donning her yellow blonde locks against her warm skin tone. For a versatile woman with golden hair, like Hayley, we recommend Bed Head by TIGI Dumb Blonde Shampoo: Therapy for Chemically Treated Hair at ₱ 1,120 to reconstruct your hair from breakage. This works best to keep your warm undertones intact from daily shampooing and leaving your hair with milk protein.

For someone like Rosé that needs to get rid of most traces of brassy yellow tones, we recommend the Davines Alchemic Silver Conditioner at ₱ 1,600. It’s ideal for touching up blonde hair, cool tones, and pastel or metallic cosmetic colors, too.

The Catriona Bronde
Catriona Gray has had many delightful natural colors, but we’re still reeling from this gorgeous shade of blonde with a warm brunette mix, also called the bronde. One of our favorite colors on warm Filipina skin, make sure there are no brassy orange shades mixed in with blonde color. Get yourself the AVEDA Blue Malva Shampoo 1000ml, ₱ 3,300. A step away from purple toning products, this one helps maintain your dark blonde hair, while keeping it smooth and healthy.
The Nadine Coconut Ash
Ready for long, lush blonde hair? Then, this exceptional blonde style on Nadine Lustre is absolutely divine. Sandy blonde balayage with loads of highlights works well on her tan skin. The amount of dimension on this creates a look full of volume. For color like this, we recommend an after-care that tones your hair, but conditions it, too, like L’Oreal Serie Expert Silver Duo at ₱ 1,570, with purple toning shampoo and a pigmented purple creme conditioner to help achieve that polished, brassy-free look.
