    Creamy and sun-kissed, Barbie Blonde is a sumptuous and popular shade. So popular that we had to make it the protagonist of our first blog post for the “Shade Of The Week” series.

    Let’s have a look together at what this shade looks like, how to style it, which celebrities are rocking it, and more.

    1. Barbie Blonde Hair Extensions: A Sunny And Trendy Mix

    Sunny and Trendy Mix

    Obtained by mixing shades #60 and #16, this hair color has a lot to say. Think of it as the “material girl blonde”, the Regina George of hair shades. Glowy, expensive-looking and just the right amount of mean - we decided to name it “Barbie Blonde” to honour the number one it girl in the world, the famous Mattel doll that changed the world.

    But let’s move on to who wears this shade, and how does it look in real life?

    3. Barbie Blonde: Celebrity Color Match

    Flirty but classy, this popular shade makes the perfect hair color for a real-life barbie - and speaking of barbies, guess who made it her signature shade for the year?

    Yep, you guessed it right: queen Margot Robbie herself!

    The color, mixing our Light Golden and Lightest Blonde shades, reflects the sunlight nicely and works well all year-round thanks to its Lightest Blonde touch, which guarantees a stunner effect no matter the season.

    Another celeb that surely knows what’s up is the gorgeous Khloe Kardashian, that has been faithful to this summerish, intriguing shade for a long long time now. From her stunning bob to the big curly blowouts that she posts on her Instagram, the businesswoman and TV personality looks absolutely gorgeous in this shade.

    4. Barbie Blonde Hair Extensions: The Perfect Hairstyles

    There are many ways that you can wear your hair extensions, and blonde shades, in general, do work really well with braided hairstyles and waves, for example. Let’s see three hairstyles that will bring Barbie Blonde to life like no one else!

    Hollywood Waves

    This glamorous hairstyle sees your hair crimped in glossy, soft waves. It’s a beautiful, timeless classic that has been trending in Hollywood and celebrity showbiz for a long time - hence the name! With this light, trendy shade of blonde, Hollywood waves will stand out and give a diva effect that is going to be hard to forget.

    Perfect for: square face shape, oval face shape

    High Ponytail

    Tall, sleek, and fierce - the high ponytail sits up on the crown of your head and lays long and smooth on your shoulders. It’s the perfect hairstyle for those that are not afraid of showing off a particular makeup or accessories, such as a big pair of earrings. The clip-in ponytail hair extension is also a versatile hair accessory that you can plait in a fearless braid or wrap up in a boho-chic, messy bun. The world is your oyster!

    Perfect for: diamond face shape, heart face shape, oval face shape

    Beach Waves

    This is the summer look by definition - and it usually features long and flowy hair extensions styled with a texturizing spray (usually sea-salt based) or by using a waver. If you’d like to know more about how to get this style with a waver, check out our dedicated blog: How To Curl Hair Extensions: A Complete Guide. Pair this look with gorgeous curtain bangs to frame your face and set the spotlight on your smile!

    Perfect for: oval face shape, round face shape

    5. Barbie Blonde Hair Color: Trends

    Blonde never dies, and this particularly loved shade is not easy to pull off - but once you do, you will feel and look unstoppable. When it comes to trends, it’s hard to know if they’re going to work out well on our hair, especially if we recently changed our hair color, length and/or style. Luckily, this year’s trends have been quite generous and are seemingly sticking around too.

    Money Piece Hair

    Are you into chunky highlights? Then you will love this trend, coming back to us from the 90s queen, Geri Halliwell from Spice Girls.

    Baby Braids

    Margot Robbie knew, and she served. Nothing else was expected!

    Claw Clip Hairstyles

    When it comes to how to put your hair up in a claw clip, hundreds of celebrities have shown the world how easy and cool it is. If you’d like to give it a try, check out our blog: Thursday Hair 101: How To Put Your Hair In A Claw Clip.

    6. Barbie Blonde Hair Extensions: Who Can Wear It?

    This is always the one million dollar question: technically, the answer I would love to always give is “everyone can wear whatever they want”. Which is true, to an extent.

    But some shades work better with certain undertones, and Barbie Blonde is no exception to this rule. Its warm and cold mix seems to be working best with warm and neutral skin tones, whilst, unfortunately, people with cool undertones will result in having their complexion washed out by the Lightest Blonde factor.

    Rich, bright and elegant - Barbie Blonde lives up to its legacy and by adding volume and length it can turn your dull blonde into the queen of all the Mean Girls out there. What are you waiting for? Shop the shade now from our range.
