Ash Blonde Hair Color

Ash blonde is a cool-toned shade that can look gorgeous on any skin tone. It can also be done on dark hair using techniques like ombre or balayage, which can reduce the number of bleaching sessions required to lighten the hair.

This look is a great way to add dimension to your hair and bring out the natural color of your roots. It's a versatile shade that looks great with both highlights and lowlights.

Asian hair

Ash blonde is a cool shade that complements all hair textures. It is also easy to tone and looks fresh when paired with dark roots. If you are considering going light, make sure to use a protectant developer and toner to minimize damage.

Medium ash blonde is a great choice for Asian hair. It blends the natural warmth of light blonde hues with ashy tones, creating a beautiful color gradation that suits a variety of skin tones. If you want a more dramatic effect, try a smooth soft ombre with your ash blonde hair and leave the roots dark.

A nut-colored base that melts into smoky ash blonde gives you a grown-out look that’s perfect for any occasion. Pair this color with a sleek straight style to show off your refined elegance.

Black hair

Black hair can be a challenge to lighten because of how many bleaches it takes to reach a cool blonde shade. According to Victoria Hunter at Whittemore Salon, it's recommended that you consult a colorist before going ash blonde to ensure your look is exactly what you want.

Dark ash blonde is a sophisticated color that can brighten your appearance. It combines natural warmth with cool undertones to create a balance that looks beautiful on all skin types.

ONC's hair dye is safe for sensitive scalps and contains organic added ingredients to keep your strands healthy during the coloring process.

Dark roots

The hair version of your perfect iced coffee, this look starts dark at the roots and melts into a light-ash blonde to create a stunning contrast of colors. This shade is great for those with darker natural hair who don’t want to cover their regrowth with bleach, and it can take a few sessions to get the desired ash color.

If you’re looking to add a little extra dimension to your ash blonde, try highlighting your locks with thick streaks of lighter and darker shades of ash brown. Streaks can be added throughout your hair or focused around the face for a flattering, face-framing effect.

If you’re going to dye your hair a lighter ash shade, make sure to consult with your stylist first to see what the best way is to lighten your dark hair without causing damage. Bonondona says it’s usually necessary to lift the hair a few levels lighter than your desired ash blonde shade in order to eliminate any warmth and create a smooth gradation.

Balayage highlights

Ash blonde is a cool blonde shade that flatters people with light eyes and cool complexions. It can be accentuated with highlights and lowlights, which can add warmth to the color and make it more dimensional. A subtle balayage of ash blonde with darker roots looks gorgeous on wavy hair. The blonde color also contrasts beautifully with the dark roots, making the balayage look naturally blended and smooth.

Balayage is a popular hair coloring technique that allows you to create natural-looking highlights on your strands. This ash blonde balayage has pretty tints of dove gray and sparrow brown that evoke the colors of morning coffee.

For a bolder style, ask your stylist for a few face-framing ash blonde highlights that highlight your waves and frame your face. A wavy long bob is another great way to rock this color, and you can wear it with any outfit.

Gray hair

Ash blonde is a cool hair color that flatters almost any complexion. It is especially effective for women who are transitioning to a full gray hair color because it helps conceal any noticeable roots or demarcations.

You can also add warm blonde highlights to an ash blonde shade to create a balayage effect that is sultry and dramatic. The combination of warm and cool tones is perfect for creating a moody blonde look that complements your skin tone.

If you have thick hair, opt for a high-quality ash blonde hair dye that offers strong and even coverage to ensure consistent color throughout your strands. Choose a formula that is infused with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E to keep your strands healthy and hydrated during the coloring process.
