The debate between going brunette vs blonde is as old as time itself. Do we dare reach for the bleach, or go straight to the hair dye for a darker, edgier look? Well, as devoted as I am to my nearly-black strands, Bella Hadid seems to be making a strong case for lighter locks.
In case you haven’t been taking note, the usually-brunette supermodel has taken a page from her elder sister’s aesthetic and dyed her hair a sweet honey blonde. Was this a mere mid-season switch up, an impulsive post-breakup change in style, or just a need to test out something new? Whichever it is, 1) we’ve all been there, and 2) she’s probably in need of a new hair routine.
As we all know, maintaining blonde hair can get pretty high maintenance. So, if you’re thinking of going down the honey-hued rabbit hole like Bella, make sure you’re prepared to give your hair some extra TLC with these blonde-approved hair care products:
