Now that we’re close to the “Ber” months, many women look forward to keeping their hair simple, yet bright. Since the sun isn’t going to be out that often, many hairstylists opt to give their clients a brighter, more pronounced look. It helps liven up both the faces of the women and the room they’re in. One of these colors is the butter blonde or more officially, buttercream blonde.
This gorgeous color is just like the name suggests. It is a beautiful, creamy blonde color that looks natural with a dash of dimension. It has a gorgeous sun-kissed combination of either warm or cool highlights that are complementary to a variety of skin tones. It isn’t an insanely bright, one-note blonde, the butter or buttercream has softer undertones for a very seamless, effortless look. But, it’s not entirely impossible to incorporate some parts of it onto darker colored hair.
Long, wavy, butter creamy blonde
Here we have the classic buttercream blonde on soft, wavy hair. It’s the perfect hairstyle to show off that this variation of blonde isn’t as harsh as most people think. It’s the pure, unadulterated buttercream blonde that is soft, silky, and smooth. Although it seems one-dimensional, this color definitely adds more texture and dimension to your hair while keeping it light and bright. The creamy blonde is usually put on the long, wavy look, but it can definitely suit any length and any skin tone because it’s just that versatile.
Warm, mocha-ish butter blonde
Going a complete 360 degrees from the last style, we have a warmer buttercream variant that’s great for clients who want some flare but don’t want to commit to the full blonde aesthetic. This does have some of the light colors that the butter blonde is known for, but has an overall darker look. It’s more of a blonde-tipped look that has the color at the ends of the hair more so than the roots. It’s very low-maintenance and very easy to get if you’re already naturally a brunette.
You keep the roots of your hair your natural hair color then dip the tips of your hair with the warm variation of the buttercream blonde. If you’d like to get it, just ask for some bright pieces around your face with pops of highlights throughout the tips, with some “lived-in” highlights all throughout the crown of your head.
Wavy hair with platinum gradient
This final hairstyle has some platinum to silver undertones that make the lightness of the buttercream blonde pop even more. Much like the last hairstyle, it does have a warmer tone with some pops of lightness, but it does have a more neutral grey undertone. With the different combinations of browns, blondes, and silvers, this mix makes for a multi-dimensional style that creates a gorgeous gradient across locks of hair.
