What exactly is ash blonde hair colour? If you’ve ever wanted to sport an edgy, ‘ice queen’ look, ash blonde is for you. Think light blonde with a grey or ‘ash’ tint.
It’s blonde with the temperature turned down, basically, leaving a brilliantly unique shade with an undertone of grey and silver. If you have a light complexion, ash blonde is a certain winner, but there’s actually a shade of ash blonde that will work for everyone.
When it comes to trending hairstyles and colours, ash blonde is certainly popular right now. There are plenty of celebrities with fine examples we’ll highlight. So let’s get straight to the list!
