Bronde Hair

bronde hair

I’ve been called a blonde and I’ve been called a brunette. I prefer the shade “bronde”, which is a combination of the two. My natural hair color is exactly what it looks like now- I have only dyed my hair twice in my life. The first time was way back in 10th grade and it was way too dark of a brown, and the other was the fall of 2011 when I ombred my own hair and basically bleached the bottom half so it was a transition of light brown to dark blonde at the tips. The ombre is still growing out and I have random lighter highlights all over that are just natural. My roots are my normal color- which I think is a mousy brown. Sigh.

So when I see in magazines that this blondish-brown shade is “hot”, Β or see people pinning photos of it on Pinterest, it makes me laugh. Because although I love my hair’s length and ability to curl, I don’t really love the color. I don’t like dying my hair because it’s not good for it and it’s expensive, and mainly I’m afraid I’d want to keep changing it every few months once I start. So I stick to my natural bronde shade- which is darker at the roots and a shade or two lighter at the tips, naturally.

Want to go bronde? Above are some fellow bronde girls who look much better rocking this shade that I ever would. Use them as your inspiration. If you’re a blonde looking to change it up, add some light brown lowlights. Or you could let your brown roots grow out a bit and get a natural ombre that people pay hundreds of dollars for. If you’re a brunette, add a few dark blonde highlights to frame your face or bleach the tips just a little (be careful!) Voila- bronde!

What do you think of this trend?Β 


  1. )I really love your bronde hair colour Rachel, it looks natural and it let your Skin tone appear tanned. I am bronde right now too πŸ™‚ Plus it looks great on blue and Brown eyed ladies :-9

  2. I’ve had “bronde” most of my life. I think it’s a really pretty color with depth and dimension, so I’m stickin’ to it (trendy or not)! πŸ˜‰

  3. I’d call my hair bronde too…especially in the summer when it gets more blonde from the sun. I used to dye to my hair but I got tired of maintaining it.

  4. Hahaha, I lilke this! Bronde hair πŸ˜‰ I am actually trying to get this look right now πŸ™‚ And then this fall I will be back to dark brown. I don’t think I’ll ever be my natural color again, for me it is too boring! And I don’t think it suits me as well as my darker or lighter hair! Your hair is always gorgeous πŸ™‚

  5. I’ve never colored my hair because I actually really like my natural color, but I have to admit I’ve kind of been jealous of other people who have done drastic things or even gotten highlights just because it seems like fun! It also seems like a pain to maintain though – and not to mention pricy!

  6. I love your bronde hair color. And I love that you have never (or barely ever) dyed it. I dye my hair all the time. I’m not sure quite what the natural color is anymore!

  7. Bronde is always such a big trend because it’s nice and in-between. People tend to get nervous when they transition hair colors, and this one is a nice (and beautiful!) in-between shade.

  8. I’ve always been a natural brunette. I went blonde one time in my early 20s but it was NOT CUTE on me! I’ve dyed it brown (a little darker than my normal shade) every now and then and I like it. I will do that soon again because I’m starting to get gray hairs! I pull them out but I know that is a big no-no.

  9. I don’t think your hair is mousey at all! I think its glossy and beautiful. You could totally rock this bronde look though, it would be fun for summer!

  10. You’re so lucky to have a natural “bronde.” I have no idea what my hairs natural color is at this point by my ombred ends are bronde and it’s my favorite part!

  11. Long live the bronde hair look! I’m also a natural bronde, more so in the winter than the summer. I’ve always hated the look until people started complementing me on my natural “brombre.” Love your bronde color!
