Finding the right hair colour can make a world of difference in enhancing your entire look. But when it comes to going blonde, some hesitate, fearing they might look washed out, especially those with Asian skin tones.
Well it is true that some blonde shades might look unflattering on Asian skin tones, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a suitable option for you.
Now, we know what you’re thinking – blonde, on me… seriously? Absolutely! Blonde can totally work for you. It’s all about selecting the perfect shade, just as you would do with makeup and clothing choices.
If you’re contemplating on going blonde but would love to have some inspiration, we’ve got a selection of the best blonde hair colours for Asian women to choose from.
Suitable for those with cool to neutral skin undertones, this shade boasts a darker blonde base with delicate highlights, creating a stunning depth and dimension effect.
Whether you’re seeking a complete hair colour transformation or prefer the balayage technique, this colour is also an excellent choice to enhance your look.
If you’re aiming for that trendy “sunset-kissed” hair, think about trying this reddish, warm colour.
Inspired by celebrities like Blackpink’s Jennie Kim, this ginger-blonde shade works well, especially for Asian hair that’s a bit stubborn and needs extra lightening.
It looks best on fair and warm skin tones, and adds a gorgeous brightness to your complexion, making it glow beautifully.
Surprisingly, this almost-white shade can actually look great on individuals with dark skin, creating a striking contrast. However, achieving this look might require multiple bleaching sessions.
If you’re aiming for an edgy appearance and want to exude the ultimate cool girl vibe, this bold choice is perfect for you. Pair this look with a strong lip colour to really stand out from the crowd.
If you have neutral skin undertones like Gigi Hadid, you can definitely rock this style like her. This creamy and well-balanced blonde shade is perfect for adding depth to your light, bleached hair, all without going overly dark.
Just like how butter enhances flavours, this buttery blonde shade can transform your whole look!
If you’re tempted to go blonde, give this buttery blonde a shot. Unlike plain and harsh blonde, this buttery blonde combines warm and cool highlights that mimics the natural beauty of sun-kissed hair. Plus, it’s great for almost all skin tones.
Not quite ready for a complete blonde transformation?
Honey blonde offers a wonderful middle ground, harmonising your skin tone and hair colour. When you’re getting all dolled up, think about complementing the look with a vibrant lip shade or standout makeup for that extra pop!
Mixed with a hint of brown, this natural blonde mimics the natural variation of blonde hair. The range of tones from this shade works well with most skin tones. You could also ask your hairstylist to adjust the base tone of the blonde that will best complement your skin.
Caramel blonde is probably the most wearable colour in this list, featuring a friendly mix of blonde and brunette, with some warm tones. It’s got a natural glow that’s just right for transitioning from dark to light hair.
It gives you an effortlessly stylish look that doesn’t need much styling, thanks to its colour combination.
