People with blonde hair range from cool to warm.  An ashy, platinum blonde or greying blonde will be on the cooler end while a brown base with blonde highlights, warm skin tones and brown eyes describe a warmer version of a blonde.

The examples above show how different temperatures look in black.  When I look at these women, the black color is overpowering – and this is just a head shot.

Black does make the face pop but not in a gentle way.  And black does not enhance any features of the women.

Non-Black Alternatives

If you have blonde hair, consider faded and dusty colors in variations of lavender, grey, blue and peach near your face.  These soft, light shades will frame your face as well as allow your eyes to pop.


  • Wear your eye color
  • Wear lighter tones that will blend with your light hair
  • Opt for cool colors and shades of colors based on your overall temperature of hair, eyes and skin


  • Bright and dark colors that will overpower your features
  • Black near your face

These tips will also work for people with hair that is predominantly silver or light grey.
