Brown light blonde hair is an elegant and timeless style. It pairs beautifully with warm complexions and looks refreshing when done wavy or curly for an ultra-modern finish.
Golden Blonde Highlights and Lowlights
Golden blonde highlights can add a striking accent to dark hair. By adding golden blonde tones on top of natural brown strands, golden blonde highlights create the ideal combination of light and dark to achieve an inherently balanced style.
Highlights are an increasingly popular hair coloring technique that can be applied with foils or painted freehand. Their effects vary, from subtle to dramatic, depending on the selected shade. Furthermore, highlights can also lighten base hair colors without bleaching them and lessen the risk of yellowing over time.
Lowlights can add depth and dimension to blonde tresses when they are light to medium in tone, adding dimension with shades like espresso, mahogany, or caramel for an irresistibly seductive effect.
Soft Golden Blonde Highlights and Soft Brown Lowlights
Soft golden blonde is an eye-catching combination for many hair colors, from light brown to copper brown. Wavy or curly locks make the golden tone shine even brighter!
Gold blonde highlights are charming on medium skin tones, creating an eye-catching sun-kissed glow. However, those with fair complexions might prefer ash-blonde highlights; these will bring subtle cool tones into their appearance while providing an affordable way to explore this trend without bleaching their entire manes.
Golden highlights on black hair can also be achieved, though you will first need to lighten it using a demi-permanent hair color like BlondorPlex No1 or No2. Always conduct a strand test before going for full-head gold blonde locks for optimal results.
Soft Golden Blonde Highlights and Soft Golden Brown Balayage
Golden blonde highlights add dimension and warmth to the natural brown hair color for an attractive sun-kissed glow. For optimal results, request a mix of golden and buttery blonde hues – this shade works exceptionally well if you still need to feel ready to leap from brunette to blonde! This shade also makes an excellent transition option.

An ashy or platinum blonde shade offers a more natural and subtle contrast with darker brown hair, mainly when applied using the balayage technique. Ask your stylist to apply this cool-toned hue using this method so you get a naturally blended and softened result. For best results, pair your ashy blonde locks with either straight or wavy brown locks for eye-catching effects, or add shine by using Shu Uemura hair Care Oil for Strong and Healthy Hair ($36), which deeply hydrates and nourishes each strand so they reflect light with their brilliant sheen.
Soft Golden Blonde Highlights and Soft Brown Balayage
If you’re a brunette looking to go blonde, try opting for a low-contrast balayage that blends seamlessly into your natural hair color. Thin highlights will draw the eye towards your gorgeous complexion, while thicker blonde streaks make a bolder statement.
If your brown locks are lighter than the desired blonde shade, use pre-lighteners such as Blondor Pixie or WellaPlex No1 Bond Maker to gradually lighten them and avoid overprocessing your hair. This technique provides a more gradual transformation without the risk of overprocessing.
If you’re transitioning from dark brown to blonde, a soft caramel balayage may be the ideal way to achieve that transition.
