Determining Undertones and Complementing Shades
Brittany emphasizes the importance of determining your undertone, whether warm, cool, or neutral. To identify your undertone, examine the color of your veins. If your veins appear purple or blue, you have a cool undertone. If they are greenish, you have a warm undertone. If you see both, you likely have a neutral undertone.
Matching the right blonde shade with your undertone prevents the color from washing out your skin tone. To enhance the brightness, Brittany suggests incorporating complementary lowlights that accentuate the blonde pieces and create a more natural look. Additionally, eye color plays a significant role in achieving bright blonde hair.
Ideal Matches for Different Complexions
Fair complexions with pink undertones are the most suitable for achieving a healthy white blonde color. For individuals with darker hair and olive complexions, Brittany recommends adding a darker root, which adds depth and creates a more natural appearance.
Maintaining White Blonde Color
Proper aftercare is crucial for maintaining white blonde color over time. Brittany advises stylists to lift the hair to the correct level during the coloring process. Merely using a gloss to tone unwanted color without lifting enough can result in brassy, yellow, or dull hair within two weeks. Waiting for the right level of lift ensures a longer-lasting and vibrant result. Healthy hair is essential for handling the process, so taking it slow is ideal.
Additionally, using a water filter on your showerhead helps counter the effects of hard water, which can cause hair to turn yellow. While purple shampoo is beneficial, excessive use can make hair brittle. Brittany recommends Pulp Riot’s purple shampoo and emphasizes the importance of reparative shampoo and conditioner, such as Kevyn Murphy’s Repair-Me products.
Key Considerations for Consultation with a Stylist
Before embarking on the journey to white blonde hair, discussing certain factors with your stylist is vital. Brittany recommends considering the natural hair color, as darker hair requires more frequent touch-ups and maintenance. Glossing in-between color services can help extend the color’s longevity.
Understanding the client’s commitment to regular salon visits is crucial to determine their suitability for white blonde hair. Lifestyle and hair care routine also play a role, especially for individuals frequently exposed to the sun or chlorine. Avoiding these elements can help preserve the brightness.
It’s important to stay on top of appointments and use quality hair products. Clients should be aware of the time and cost required for maintaining the desired shade. Brittany believes in being honest with clients and suggesting alternatives if the desired shade doesn’t align with their lifestyle or if the hair’s integrity would be compromised. Trust and transparency are key in establishing a successful stylist-client relationship.

If you want a cool tone hair color, pale white blonde is a great choice. This soft shade complements many skin tones. Pale white blonde has a blend of cool hues that add shine and light to your hair. It looks best on light or porcelain skin, giving a striking contrast. Cool ashy tones will make your hair look darker. To get the pale white blonde color, you need to lighten your hair to a level 9 or higher. After that, a toner can be used to achieve the desired shade.
#6: Mid-Length Waves for Ice White Hair
To keep your hair looking fabulous, consider mid-length waves for ice-white hair. This hairstyle adds texture and movement to your locks, enhancing the overall appearance. The mid-length waves create a soft and romantic vibe. Regular trims and deep conditioning treatments are crucial to maintain the health of your hair. Embrace heat protection products before styling with heat tools to minimize damage.
#7: Above-the-Shoulder White Bob
A white bob is perfect whether you love platinum hair or embrace your natural hair. If you have naturally fine hair, a blunt bob will help create the illusion of volume and fullness. If you often wear your hair in a ponytail or bun, you will love the versatility of a longer bob. You can wear it down or up depending on how you’re feeling. Ask your stylist about toner and cut appointments to keep your hair looking its best.

For those looking for a fresh and chic hair color, a very white-blonde blunt cut could be a perfect choice. The color is achieved by blending cool and warm tones. This results in a bright shade that suits those with olive and tan skin tones well. To get the best result, ask your colorist to lift to a pale yellow if you can or higher. Then mix the creamy blonde with a dash of golden blonde to avoid your color from going too ashy.
#9: White Blonde Textured Bob
Regarding textured bobs, a white-blonde hue can be the best choice for a chic and modern look. The white blonde adds a fresh and vibrant touch to the textured bob. It creates a stylish and eye-catching hairstyle. The textured bob adds volume, movement, and dimension to the hair. This makes it a versatile option for various occasions. I recommend consulting with a hairstylist to achieve the perfect white-blonde textured bob. They can skillfully cut and style your hair to enhance its texture and create a flattering shape.
#10: Long Waved White Blonde Hair
This stunning long, waved white blonde hair is a showstopper! This would be a very wary color if your hair is naturally light. Try to avoid this if you want a low-maintenance color.
#11: Bright Blonde Blunt Cut with Waves
A bright blonde blunt cut with waves is chic. Typically, when lightening hair, it leaves a bit of stress on the hair. I suggest doing a medium blunt cut to help alleviate any damage that may have occurred. Plus, it will create the illusion of thickness. Ask for a blunt one-length haircut with an airy texture to create movement. I also recommend using a larger barrel curling iron to create loose waves. My favorite is the T3 Singlepass Curl 1.25″.
#12: Icy White Blonde with Face-Framing Pink Bangs
Icy white blonde with face-framing pink bangs is a bold take on color blocking. It’s also a creative way to add vividness to your blonde hair. If your hair is bleached and you enjoy fashion colors, a color-blocking method can be a fun way to change your style. Opt for soft tones like pink or purple for an easy transition back to blonde.
#13: Jaw-Dropping White Blonde Long Hair
Jaw-dropping white blonde long hair is a gorgeous color for those who want to stand out. Using a lightener is usually the way to get light enough. Ask your stylist what it will take to achieve a white-blonde color. Having light blonde hair, I know it’s high-maintenance but totally worth it.
#14: Icy Choppy Layered Bob Cut
If you want a drastic spin on your textured cut, ask your stylist to make you a platinum blonde. This platinum hair color is a high-maintenance blonde investment. But if you are willing to commit, your hair will obtain its health and keep your tone flawless. Don’t forget to inform your stylist about any color or chemical history you’ve done in the past 2-3 years. Your stylist might want to do a strand test to see how your hair will lighten and to check its integrity.
#15: Adorable White Champagne Blonde Bob
Try an adorable white champagne blonde bob if you want a classic statement. Instead of asking for a platinum white tone, talk to your stylist about this softer option. Having a bit of warmth in the blonde is more youthful and light reflective.
#16: Bright White Blonde Medium-Length Layers
White blonde hair looks amazing. If you want to be as blonde as possible, ask for back-to-back highlights or an all-over pre-lightener. Your stylist will be able to advise the best path. The only drawback if you decide to go full-on blonde is the regrowth. You must be prepared to see your stylist at the recommended time frame. It’s the best way to keep your color looking fresh.
#17: Chic Ice White Blonde Bob
If you have virgin hair and want to be blonde, all you need is a bleach out. I suggest getting a strand test done prior to booking an appointment. That way, your stylist has more insight into what your hair will need to achieve your hair goal. When getting a bleach out, remember you must keep your appointments every 4-5 weeks. This way, you avoid ending up with discolored banding. You will want to go without washing your hair for a minimum of 2 days before the day of your appointment.
#18: Stunning Mid-Length Icy White Straight Hair
Try mid-length, straight hair if you don’t mind more maintenance. Keeping your hair a beautiful icy white can mean more frequent salon visits and an extensive at-home care routine, but it is worth it.
#19: Gorgeous White Blonde Hair with Pink Tips
A perfect addition to a creamy white blonde is a playful pink hue. Be sure to ask for a softer pink if you want something other than a long haul tone. This will wash out and reveal your perfect blonde tone underneath.
#20: Short Fluffy White Creamy Blonde Hair
Consider doing a short fluffy white creamy blonde to brighten your face. If you want to try this color, it’s best for naturally lighter hair. I wouldn’t recommend this color if you have dark hair. It could cause too much damage going this light. To maintain this white creamy blonde, I suggest having your stylist do a toner every 4-6 weeks.
#21: Long Flowing White Blonde Curls
Long flowing white blonde curls are the perfect style for any occasion. Try combing through the curls with a wide tooth comb when you finish curling your hair. This will help you to achieve soft and classy waves. Be sure that you have let the curls fully cool off before doing this, or you may comb them out completely.
#22: Long White Blonde Waves
If you are looking for long white blonde waves, the best practice is to have a great hair routine. Do hair treatments often to keep your hair long, strong, and healthy. While between maintenance appointments, purple shampoo can keep your hair bright and cool-toned. This will help to avoid the yellow undertone of bleached hair.
#23: Tousled White Blonde Bob with a Side Part
Try a tousled white-blonde bob with side parting if you want to turn heads. Light blonde like this is hard to achieve, so make sure you’re seeing an experienced colorist and using the right products to maintain it.
#24: Sexy White and Silver Blonde
White and silver-blonde can be so tricky and beautiful, all at the same time! To achieve such colors, you must lighten your natural hair down to the palest blonde that exists. You must also do this in such a way that you maintain the healthiest version of the hair possible. If you are starting to see a little more gray in your new growth of hair, don’t freak out! Silver/white blonde is the perfect way to keep up with the trends. This is a very high-maintenance look for any woman, especially ladies with naturally darker hair. It does require frequent visits to your stylist for touchups on new growth and also new toners to get rid of any unwanted tones.

Lighten up your look with a cool ash white hair shade on your long wavy hair for enchanting ice queen vibes! A white blonde shade flatters a fair or light skin tone the best.
#26: White as Snow on Shoulder-Length Tresses
White blond hair is the Lamborghini of blondes. It’s the most sought-after blonde of all time. I call it “Mother of Pearl” because of its luxurious tone. This color is not cheap! If you think you’re going to go this light and use cheap aftercare products or go to a non-professional colorist who is not experienced in blondes, be ready to shave your hair off and spend hundreds of dollars on products trying to fix it.
Do your research beforehand, and don’t be afraid to interview your colorist about their experience and your hair type, texture, pigment, and if it’s even possible to achieve this color.
#27: Dimensional White Blonde Hair With Ashy Tones

#33: Flattering Metallic White
An icy-blonde color and soft waves add texture and movement to your hair.
#34: Bright Layered Bleach Blonde
Go for the icy white blonde hair that every lady dreams of! Maintaining an icy, white hair dye requires regular visits to the salon about every 2-4 weeks for a root touch-up and toner. So if you’re constantly on the go and have a very busy lifestyle, this may not be the best look for you. Also, keep in mind that depending on your natural hair color, this may not happen in one visit, and that’s okay. You also want to regularly wear a conditioning mask to keep your blonde shiny and healthy. Blonde is beautiful, but it does take maintenance.
#35: Streaked White Blonde on Brown Color
Try a very dimensional highlight/lowlight, when you want to create a dirty blonde hue. Use neutral chocolate tones and more icy blonde tones in very fine sections to create a strong contrast while blending nicely and not looking “stripey.” This color looks great straight, wavy, or curly, but these curls made by a 1-inch curling iron show off all your ribbons of color. Highlights, lowlights, or even both will add the dimension that solid colors lack. This white hair with lowlights creates light and dark tones, and your outgrowth is less harsh, which is a win if you want to go a while between appointments!
#36: Natural-Looking Baby White Blonde on Straight Hair
The naturally-looking baby white blonde hair trend is a wearable lived-in look. Go for a rooty dimensional white blonde that complements your skin tone and haircut. Getting to this level of blonde isn’t always achievable in one session, and upkeep at-home styling products such as oil, heat protectant, and purple shampoo are crucial.
This hair idea is stunning, but it isn’t for everyone. Consider how much you want to spend and the time you put in at home to ensure your hair is as good at home even after leaving the salon. A good consultation with your stylist is key when achieving such white hair styles.
#37: Trendy Short Hair with a White Blonde Hue
A white-blonde hair color looks great with lixies. The color does the speaking, so super relaxed styling is essential for this. Shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo to keep it clean from air pollution, which can build on your hair and is visible on blondes, and gives you brassy yellow tones! Follow that with a toning treatment, which will nourish your hair with hydration and has violet tones to give it a clean blonde feel. Try Christophe Robin “baby blonde.”
The ideal woman for this would have to be a girl with a natural base of dark ash blonde. For the lightening process to be gentle on your hair, mix a Plex product in with your color.
#38: Modern Dark Roots with White Blonde
It’s a low-maintenance approach to platinum white hair with dark roots. By having a dark or shadow at your root, you can effortlessly grow out your hair without any harsh lines.
Go through a lengthy consultation to determine the best style for you. If you can make it into the salon every 6-8 weeks and want to be super blonde, you can go for highlights or on-scalp bleach. If you can only come in every 3-6 months, try a shadow root or even a foilayage method with a more blended root area.

#48: Sleek White A-Line Bob

To keep your white hair looking bright and to prevent yellowing of your hair, try Nook The Service Color purple shampoo to add longevity to your color.

#51: White Blonde Spiky Pixie Cut
A white blonde spiky pixie cut is edgy, fresh, and exciting. The white hair colour flatters neutral skin tones. Spiky pixie cuts are easy to style and can be customized to work with most facial shapes. A spiky pixie can help round face shapes look more angular.
