Blonde Hair Trends for Summer

Summer hair colours vary year to year, but blonde hair doesn’t go out of style, so learn how to refresh your natural blonde hair colour or where to begin your first foray into the light side. Here’s how Kérastase Blond Absolu can help you achieve the ultimate summer blonde look!

Balayage or Highlights

Highlights are a great way to go blonde naturally. This is a great option for less damage but requires more time (and patience) to make the change.

Balayage, of course, is here to stay. It’s the ultimate summer blonde hair colour and it’s the low-commitment way to go blonde since the seamless strands grow out without a harsh root line. In fact balayage can even go onto look better with time.

For those who want a more all-over blonde hair colour for summer, there are a few different looks that are trending right now. Of course, it’s never a good idea to blindly follow the trends so work with your salon to find the blonde hair colour that suits your eye colour, skin tone and lifestyle - some blonde hair requires a lot of upkeep!

Sandy blonde hair is an another way to go blonde. Not too ashy or too brassy, this sand-hued hair colour is a great combination of warm sandy and cool beige tones that can look incredibly beautiful. Alternatively, if you want to go slightly cooler; mushroom blonde hair, which has hints of brunette and grey running through it, also looks stunning. Want to go all out? A blanket of pure ice blonde hair is always in style, but can be a high maintenance colour to try.

Step by Step Hair Care for Golden Blonde Hair

For subtle, natural-looking blonde hair, the key is a little brightening and a lot of nourishment. These four steps will help you feel closer to the sunkissed look and feel you want.


Use Bain Lumiere Shampoo as your daily shampoo to wash your hair, this will help to hydrate and illuminate highlights.


Nourish your hair without extra weight using Cicaflash Conditioner with every daily wash.


Deeply condition the ends with Masque Ultra-Violet Purple Hair Mask twice a month, leave on for 5 minutes then rinse out.


Tame frizzy hair and add luminosity by applying Cicaplasme Hair Serum on towel-dried hair before you air dry.

Platinum Blonde or Icy Blonde?

Fundamentally, ice blonde has blue underlying pigments while platinum blonde has greyish-coloured hair underlying pigments. It is an on-trend style suitable for women of all ages, hence it will continue to rock in years to come. And of course, you don’t even have to have greys growing in to rock this colour trend, you can ask your colourist to do it for you.

For ex-model and fashion blogger Grece, icy blonde makes her feel young and daring. "My hair is my signature look," she says.

Blond Absolu is for all types of blonde hair including grey, and Cicaextreme for those who lighten their hair. The hair products contain a combination of hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant Edelweiss flower that leaves hair feeling nourished, while the addition of purple pigments in the shampoo and hair mask helps to neutralise brassiness for a more illuminated, fresh-feeling silver and blonde hair colour every day.

Summer Care for Blonde Hair

During the summer months, blonde hair requires extra TLC. The sun, sea and chlorine from summer can leave your hair feeling dehydrated with strands more prone to breakage, the sun’s UV rays may have been damaging your hair (just like it can our skin), while these environmental aggressors can also turn your salon-fresh blonde hair colour into a brassy yellow.

Summer is cold (or hot), sexy, a little bit wild. And you want hair to match that mood while avoiding the downsides of colour fading, dryness, dullness.

During the summer months, you can switch up your Blond Absolu hair care routine with our Soleil range. This collection nourishes and illuminates' hair, while protecting the hair from dryness and fading due to summer season aggressors such as sun, chlorine and salt water. Containing UV filters, the shampoo and hair mask helps cleanse and nourish the hair without making it feel weighed down.
