At Essensuals London, we’ve always got our ear to the ground in terms of hair trends, and one in particular has been sweeping the runways and blogosphere: going bronde. That’s no typo–bronde is the latest trending hair color that’s somewhere in between blonde and brunette, creating the perfect enigmatic shade....
that will leave everybody wondering and staring.
Many women are tempted to go darker when the summer ends. A bright, pale blonde is great for the summertime, but when the leaves start dropping women of all ages start looking for their “back to school” or “back to business” look. There are natural reasons we associate darker hair with the indoor days of winter—when left to the devices of nature, our hair turns darker in the colder seasons because it’s exposed to less bleaching from the sunlight. Furthermore, our hair usually becomes healthier due to lack of sun exposure, constant showering, chemicals or salt water, and many women seek to restore a nurtured, healthy glow to their exhausted locks this time of year.
Of course, brown doesn’t have to mean blah, and with the right combination of honeys and caramels your bronde hair can be perfect for fall and still as lively as it was in the summer.
One of the best things about bronde is that it’s a perfect application of our signature color melting technique! Essensuals has pioneered the color melt in the Pacific Northwest, and we’re Seattle’s go-to experts when it comes to creating enigmatic, multi-dimensional color. The ideal bronde shades that you’ll see on celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Lawrence, Sarah Jessica Parker, or Blake Lively draw on color melting techniques, and like color melting, bronde is a great choice for anyone who is over the ombre or trying to repair damage from heavy bleaching.
One of the reasons our skills with color melting translate so effectively to creating the perfect bronde is that neither are easy to do and both require highly trained stylists. What we like to call the “lazy bronde” is dying your hair a single shade that is either a light brown or a dark blonde. A “true bronde,” however, combines different colored highlights and lowlights with your base to create something shimmering and truly of both worlds. With the wrong stylist, this can wind up looking like a tacky mess. In the hands of a professional, it will look warm, bright, full, and more than the sum of its parts. If you want to go bronde this winter, go all the way! Choose Essensuals.
Bronde is ideal for longer, layered hair that will allow for movement and flow, but bronde is suited to all ages, ethnicities, and natural base colors. Come in and talk to us about the possibilities of going bronde this November!
