Taking the popular tones of ombre or balayage, bronde incorporates the balance of brunette and blonde all over the head. (Post continues after gallery.)
Because the whole point of the colour is to sit right in the middle of the blonde/brunette spectrum, it’s extremely versatile.
It’s perfect if you stuck between committing to one colour, great for those wanting a way to grow out their balayage or a sophisticated option for people wanting a current and easy hair change.
It’s also made for anyone who dreads the thought of committing to six week-ly trips to the hairdresser and the ideal colour for lived-in hair – a subtle and long-lasting alternative to traditional highlights.
Rather than balayage or tortoiseshell where the two colours tend to run into each other, for bronde hair the strands of blonde and brunette hair actually mingle together.
Added highlights are typically in two or more colours, and only slightly different to the starting colour which is what creates the coveted "natural" effect. (Post continues after gallery.)
According to Schwarzkopf, brunettes can achieve the look by adding slightly lighter strands of hair, while blondes will get the sun-drenched look by colouring strands of their hair darker.
Exactly how dark will depend on the shade of blonde you are.
Golden blonde and light cappucino brown tones are generally universally flattering and good starting points.
And the good news doesn't stop there.
While we all love the #flawless look and feeling of a fresh cut and dye, bronde hair actually looks better and natural as it goes on, as the strands grow and fade subtly each time you wash it.
