Cool blonde hair colors have been sought after for quite some time. After all, that’s where products like purple shampoo and conditioner got their claim to fame (even though they can be used on warm blonde hair, too). And while we still love shades like ashy mushroom blonde and icy platinum, warm blonde hair has been stepping into the spotlight. Ahead, we share eight warm blonde hair color ideas that will have you trading in your icy locks.
1. Honey Blonde
Why we love it: Think about the color of the honey you pour into a cup of tea—rich, golden, and caramel tones mixed throughout. Now, imagine that as a hair color, and you’ll see why honey blonde hair is one of our favorite warm blonde hues.

2. Strawberry Blonde
Why we love it: This reddish-blonde hue is an OG in the warm blonde hair color world. We’ve seen top celebrities, social media influencers, and our BFFs alike sporting strawberry blonde hair. It’s especially flattering on those with a fair complexion.

3. Buttery Blonde
Why we love it: This shade is just what it sounds like—a rich, creamy blonde hue reminiscent of butter. Typically, the color is full of dimension, featuring a warm blonde base with cool-toned highlights to brighten up the look.

Why we love it: If you’ve yet to hear about bronde hair, you’re in for a treat. This warm blonde hair color is mixed with brunette hues. It’s an ideal great transition shade for brunettes who want to toggle on the blonde side without fully committing.
How to DIY it: This color is best left to the pros, as they can expertly weave together tones of brunette and blonde for the ultimate flattering hue. That said, if you’re working with a brunette base, you can temporarily get the appearance of warm blonde highlights by using our L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Gold.
5. Caramel Blonde
Why we love it: Caramel blonde is perfect for those with olive and deep complexions, as the warm blonde hair shade is darker in color. It’s also a perfect option for those who are looking to transition to blonde without going too light right off the bat.

6. Golden Blonde
Why we love it: This color conveys everything we love about a blonde mane—it’s a sunny and rich blonde hue. The shade caninstantly bring warmth to your complexion, even if you have a fair skin tone.

7. Cream Blonde
Why we love it: This isn’t a totally warm blonde color—while it veers on the warm side, it’s actually a blend of both warm and cool blonde shades. Because of this, cream blonde hair is universally flattering regardless of your undertones.

8. Sandy Blonde
Why we love it: Picture dirty blonde hair and you’ll have an idea of why we love sandy blonde. This hue combines brunette and blonde tones for a mane that resembles sun-soaked sand.
How to DIY it: Since this color involves multi-dimensional highlights, skip the DIY and book an appointment at your favorite salon. If you want to give it a go, pick up an at-home highlighting kit, like our L’Oréal Paris Colorista Bleach in Highlights.
