Bronde is here to stayOmbre has been around for a while now, and it looks like bronde is here to take its place. Tai Walker, Head of Colour and Technical Development at Mahogany Hairdressing talks us through it.
'Bronde,' as the name suggests, is the perfect balance between blonde and brunette. For years, women have yoyo'd between the two as seasons change but now, this bang on trend can be worn by almost anyone all year round. With the likes of everyone from Cara Delevingne to Jennifer Lopez rocking the look, this versatile colour technique suits all ages and skin tones.
How to wear this season's hottest hair hue:
In your 20s...
Now's the time to be your most daring. Embrace your youth and make use of strong contrasts of striking blonde tones with clever placement of bold internal panels.

Mid contrasts of depths are key. Keep colours in the same tonal family; think mochas through to soft creams.

Keep hues blended as much as possible - there should be a minimal visible connection between colours. Complexions tend to change a little through the latter part of the 40s, so slightly lighter bases are more flattering. With the dreaded white hairs forcing their way through, staying on the lighter side of bronde will mean a lower maintenance.

The key to creating the perfect bronde is to find the right marriage of tones and hues. Rich chocolate bases should be teamed with warm golds or caramels - leave the cool and pearlescent blondes to ash or smoky bases. Avoid placing any lighter pieces directly through the parting area, keeping a veil of dark to fall and camouflage any regrowth for the ultimate in easy maintenance. Along with tonal refreshes, lighter sections around the face should be the only up keep, something that could easily be refreshed in a lunch break.
