Making the decision to go blonde is a big one - hair colour is such a huge part of our identity and self-expression, it's pretty easy to understand why. But once you've decided to do it, there's a whole new set of decisions to make; which blonde? Do you go platinum? Bleached? Honey-hued? Ice blonde? The options are pretty much endless.
To inspire you, we've picked out the very best white blonde, platinum blonde, ash blonde, strawberry blonde AND dark blonde celebrity hairstyles to help you choose.
And if newly-blonde Dua Lipa is anything to go by, a subtle approach to the look is the ideal way to go for Autumn – the singer let her characteristic dark shade show through from underneath. Tasked with the challenge of switching Dua's hair from deep brunette to a light honey, her hair colourist, Nicola Clarke at the John Frieda Salons team commented, "the biggest challenge was keeping the hair as healthy as possible whilst making this huge colour change. We managed this by using Virtue Labs ColorKick," she said. "It's always a huge privilege to be trusted to transform someone's hair so dramatically.
Looking to follow suit? Don't hesitate to go with a more natural shade that will require less bleaching and fewer salon visits.
