Hair Color Now

Trend Of The Month

Bomb Blondes

With the weather heating up it’s the perfect time to slip into everyone’s favorite summer hair color—blonde! This haute hair hue is the perfect way to have fun with your mane. And with unlimited shades and variations, blonde can look great on anyone. Just check out these stunning manes.


Drip in gold with this lengthy look. Styled by Rasheedah S. Foreman, from Redz Beauty and Braids in Vallejo, CA, shades of ginger, honey and butterscotch are blended together to created a glistening, sleek style that tumbles way past the shoulders.



Brighten up your locks with this flirtatious hairstyle. Hair was first shaded a chestnut brown and then amplified with buttery, gold highlights. Stylist “LA” Laguana, of LA’s Hair Studio in Union City, GA, used a curling wand to style these beachy waves.


So sultry! This handmade wig is an absolute showstopper—and a great way to play with golden hues without the coif color commitment. Hairdresser Ramika Guillory, of Shear Ingenuity Hair salon in Philadelphia, PA, took brown and blonde hair and bonded it onto a cap before being shaped and spun into bouncy curls with a flat iron.



Singer Zonnique Pullins is a fan favorite on the hit show Growing Up Hip-Hop: Atlanta. This bombshell is showing off the style power of bold gold! Here, the performer pulled her curly locks into a Mohawk-inspired shape by concentrating curls through the center.
