Has your hair stylist opened up shop again? You're probably dying to get in there and get a fresh cut and color! After not being able to get your hair done by a professional for a while, you might be feeling like you want to go all out and try a whole new look. If you have naturally blonde hair or have been lightening your hair to be blonde, here are some trends that would be easy to achieve from your current shade without being too hard on your hair.

Mushroom Blonde

"Mushroom blonde hair is a multi-tonal hair colour, combining blonde and ashy tones to achieve the ultimate cool-blonde hairstyle. Think bronde, but with an ashier update, converting traditionally light blonde shades to a cooler tone. This winning mixture of darker undertones, with ashy, grey-blonde sections is the perfect mix of both blonde and brunette, lending itself wonderfully to blondes who want to experiment with their darker side, or brunettes wanting to lighten their hair up, sign us up!"

—Phoebe Barber, Hair UK

Baby Blonde

"This shade of blonde is extremely light in hue—nearly platinum—but with a tad more warmth throughout. Basically, the color resembles that light, gorgeous hair color of your naturally blonde friends. Talk about envy-worthy! If you weren’t born with a head full of perfectly blonde strands, it’s all about faking it until you make it."

L'Oréal Paris USA

Greige Blonde

"Beige and gray are those catch-all colors you can always rely on: Relaxing, uncomplicated, and universally flattering when it comes to most things, now including hair color. By combining the two shades, you create an ashy neutral that blends the best qualities of each, resulting in a striking, yet incredibly wearable shade. It works on cool and warm skin tones alike to create dynamic blends, whether you’re into sandy beige with subtle touches of ash gray or ash gray with rich strokes of biscuit blonde."

—Kaitlyn Yarborough, Southern Living

Shadow Root

"Root shadowing is a low maintenance hair color technique in which a darker shade is applied directly to the roots giving a soft, seamless contrast. It’s a great way to refresh your look, giving your hair color depth and dimension. Root shadowing is often seen with balayage highlights...think blonde, highlighted hair with dark roots, although it can truly be done with any hair color."

—Susannah Murdock, Madison Reed
