Platinum, icy, sandy, honey, strawberry – the list of blonde hair colour variations go on and on, but “dirty blonde” is by far one of the most popular. It’s the shade often associated with surfers and beach-goers who have sun-kissed highlights from hours spent in the water.

The dirty blonde colour mixes light brown and blonde hues to create a medium hair colour that’s super natural-looking and easier to maintain than a brighter colour, such as platinum or icy blonde. Both those who are existing blondes, and brunettes looking to dye their hair blonde, are a good fit for the effortless-looking colour. It can be achieved by lightening the overall hair colour (if you’re a brunette) or adding cooler brown tones into your hair if it’s already light.

As summer fast approaches, the dirty blonde hue is a great option for anyone looking for something with very little maintenance. Like with all blonde hair colours, you can use a purple shampoo to help cancel out any brassy-orange tones that develop in the colour but it will need far fewer touch-ups and professional toning treatments than a platinum hue.
