The Best Blonde Hair Color Ideas for 2020


From icy silver to honey blonde. 

While the age-old question—do blondes actually have more fun?—may never be answered, one thing’s for sure: They have more options than ever before. Classic blonde hair colors such as platinum and honey have been joined by tons of trending shades like s’mores (really) and Nordic white, giving every skin tone and hair color an opportunity to lighten up. If you’ve been toying with the idea of going blonde or are just looking to freshen up your color, a new decade is a better time than any to go for it.

We spoke to top colorists to find out what the most requested blonde hair colors are of the moment—and what everyone will be wanting come 2020. Scroll on for some inspo, and get ready to book an appointment.

Tweed Hair

According to Chicago colorist Rex Jimieson, his clients have been moving away from the darker roots and lighter ends they’ve been loving in recent seasons. Instead they’ve been asking for a look that Jimieson dubbed tweed hair, essentially subtle highlights that are evenly distributed. “A contrast is still present, but not as ‘overachiever’ as seen in recent seasons,” he says. One of our favorite versions of the look? This ashy blonde with lighter balayage pieces from Simplicity Salon in south Florida.
