Platinum blonde hair is lifted with bleach so the blonde is almost white. Depending on the color of the toner your hair stylist uses, you can go for a more yellow-based platinum blonde or the full white blonde. Keep in mind that platinum hair is a commitment as it needs to be touched up regularly, but it definitely makes a statement. If you opt to go platinum this spring, be sure to purchase a purple shampoo. Purple shampoo cancels out and brassiness or yellow undertones to and brings out the cool undertones.

Gray

If your hair has gone gray, now is the time to embrace it! Gray has been gaining popularity; younger adults are actually dyeing their hair gray. This spring, go au naturale, and let those silver tones shine. Like platinum blonde hair, it’s a good idea to wash with a purple shampoo at least once a week to keep the ashy tones bright.

Blondes have more fun, right? Spring 2017 is the time to embrace your inner Goldilocks.

To pump up this color, ask your hair colorist to start with a golden blonde base and add lighter blonde highlights to create some dimension. Color Inspiration: Amanda Seyfried, Blake Lively.
