The beauty of ash blonde hair is unique, as it mixes all the gorgeousness of blonde hair and its natural brightness with the sultry and whimsical feel of ashy tones such as silver and beige. Ash blonde has become quite popular lately, especially as ashy tones work really well with pretty much any skin undertone and they can make a nice tan pop like nothing else. In this blog, we’ll explore a few ashy options for your marvellous blonde makeover. Read on to find your shade!
