Been thinking about changing you hair colour and hearing this 'new' term 'bronde'?
Well, basically, it's a blend of the words 'blonde' and 'brunette' - yep, like 'Brange' or 'Kimye', the peeps who make word-blending their mind-numbing craft, have come up with this keyword to describe blondie/brownie hair.
It's like the new balyage. But pretty much the same, just with a new name...
Despite the wanky term, it's actually a really easy hair colour to a) achieve and b) carry off.
If you desire to get this look with your hairdresser:
1. Reference people like: JLo, Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker (most of the time)...
2. Ask for fine caramel/blonde highlights and a darker semi over your roots/throughout the rest of the (unhighlighted) hair
3. Enjoy less time in the hairdresser chair...(woo!)
If you're happy to DIY at home, it's actually quite easy to pull off.
I used this stuff from L'Oreal: Preference Wild Ombre No 2 Dark Blonde to Medium Brown 1
It was pretty strong bleach - let's just say I could feel the intensity in my eyes, and wouldn't apply with my kids in the bathroom. But it really worked in one go and made a huge difference to my hair straight away. It was easy to apply and quick to achieve a really nice caramel colour throughout the ends of my hair.
Then when it was time for a hairdresser visit (I wanted to go lighter again and didn't trust good old DIY in case of snapping strands), she was impressed with my colour, and it was relatively easy to keep the look going by adding fine highlights throughout my hair.
I then found it easy to maintain my greys, as I can just add a permanent root touch up when I can see those pesky greys peaking through.
SO...in a nutshell: bronde is the way to go if:
1. You want a little less time in the hairdresser chair
2. You get grey hairs quickly and want to maintain them at home (or in salon - obvs costs more)
3. You want a change but don't want to maintain full-on blonde hair
Let's just say 'bronde' might change your hair life - I recommend giving it a go (unless you've got your colour sorted for life - touche to you!)
