What is the bronde haircolor trend all about?
There’s no better confidence boost than a hair color refresh, and the bronde hair trend today is all about gorgeous brunette hues ranging from coffee latté to chocolate and everything in between. So what is bronde hair color? It has been described as a rich fusion between blonde and brunette, where the colors come together and create a beautiful blended palette. Bronde looks flattering on anyone and can be considered by all age groups, it looks incredibly natural and is a great way to spruce up your usual brunette color this summer. The mixture of light and dark tones adds texture and movement to a potentially flat brunette, whilst adding incredible shine and condition. Bronde is already proving popular with IT-LIST celebs from Suki Waterhouse and Jennifer Lopez to Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton. Let’s find out more about it…
Why bronde hair color is the best low maintenance color
This season, lived-in bronde hair inspires major envy for its low-maintenance and equally stylish flair. The lived-in look is all about confidently rocking overgrown roots to minimize upkeep, one of the main barriers to women getting their hair colored. In order to achieve this effortless style, the term ‘bronding’ has resurfaced where blonde and brunette are living under the same roof. Colorists are using techniques such as balayage and ombre which are perfect for adding a little blonde and moving to a subtle bronde look.
Bronde can also be a great way to transition from blonde to brunette if you are looking to pick up a darker tone and go brunette.

Best tips for making a subtle change
We understand that sometimes you want to update your look without making a drastic change. Often coloring your hair can be scary and nerve-wracking, whether you are a hair color virgin or have been dying your hair for years. If this is true for you, bronde is the way to go. So if you’re a brunette looking to play up your natural hair color, there are a few things you can do. During your consultation with your colorist, Redken recommends looking into adding a few subtle accents to your hair with babylights to enrich your natural base color. The babylights hair color technique uses thin, subtle highlights to frame the face or add dimension to a look. Alternatively, you can also ask your stylist about using Shades EQ Gloss on your hair for a toning effect that pumps up the shine and enhances your natural brunette hue.
