This generally produces a fairly even distribution of brown and blonde hair, giving you a balanced appearance without trying. Shorter lengths of hair look fantastic with this type of highlight.

Blonde Sides

This is a unique technique to do highlights that is interesting. There will be a concentration of blonde on the sides of the hair, giving you two strips of blonde on both side and a middle that is a variation of brown tones.

How To Care For Brown Hair With Blonde Highlights?

It’s a good idea to make a few adjustments to your regular hair care routine after coloring your hair to help protect your strands. The care recommendations that you can refer to are as follows:

  • Use shampoo and conditioner made specifically for color-treated hair: Replace your previous shampoo and conditioner with a system designed for hair that has undergone color treatment. The easiest way to keep your new color is to include a blue-toning shampoo and conditioner in your daily skincare routine. These will aid in avoiding or canceling out unwanted red and orange tones.

  • Add in hair masks a couple of times a week: On days when your strands seem parched, you can replace the conditioner with something stronger. It is suggested that you treat your blonde strands once a week. When using a hair mask, apply it to damp hair, let it sit for three to five minutes, then thoroughly rinse with lukewarm water before patting it dry.

  • Always apply a heat protectant: Using too much heat while styling might cause your color to fade, so it’s crucial to apply a protectant before using a blow dryer, curling iron, or flat iron.

Warm golden highlights are ideal for giving hair that sun-kissed appearance.

  • Choose intense blonde shades over bright ones if you want to add depth to your hair color.
  • Golden, honey, and strawberry blondes are lighter hues of blonde that give your hair more sheen.
  • You can experiment with different highlight styles. You can choose a balayage or get streaks. Before you take the bronze jump, discuss your alternatives with your hairstylist.
  • Be sure to consider the time of year. Some colors are more vibrant in the fall than in the spring. This is due to how different each season’s colors are. In contrast to the bright colors of summer, there are more earthy hues on display in the autumn.
  • You’ll need to bleach your hair to become blonde, so take good care of it. Every two weeks, deep condition it to keep it from drying out.
  •  After coloring it, avoid using heat-style products for at least two weeks. This will significantly reduce the harm that bleaching causes.
