Formulating Bronde for Darker Levels w/Letitia Perez https://youtu.be/jIaD2xjLfqE

When blonde is too bright, but a straight-up brunette doesn’t excite, we have the next best thing—an in-between shade! Is it dirty blonde? Is it sun-streaked brown? Is it hair gone bronzed? This is where the confusion ends. Meet Bronze, your soon-to-be hair color best friend.

Not quite brown, not quite blonde, this beachy hair color is perfect year-round. Because bronde is possibly the most universal shade out there, this color mashup is the perfect pick for anyone looking to switch things up. When you mix these two tones, you introduce depth and warmth, while leaving behind a low-commitment, low-maintenance grow-out.

But how do you create a bronde shade on darker levels? Letecia Perez @rocksteadyhairart walks us through her foolproof techniques on how to achieve a beautiful bronde look.

Bronde game strong.

Pro Tips
  • Work with thinner sections to achieve full lightening.
  • Use a feathery motion on top to create a seamless blend and lived-in look.
