Now Pinning: The Best Creamy Blonde 'Dos
Unless you were born with the kind of naturally flaxen locks Grace Kelly would be jealous of, you'll know that nailing the perfect shade of bottle blonde can be tricky. Whether we're talking an all over tint or highlights of any description, the best examples of this hair colour undoubtedly come courtesy of skilled colourists who know their way around a bottle of bleach. (And Olaplex, probably.) While there are zillions of iterations of blonde—from Marilyn-esque platinum to Gisele's honey-kissed strands, there's one place you can find examples of them all: Pinterest. We reached out to our friends at the photo sharing site for the intel on the most Pinned creamy blonde 'dos for your scrolling pleasure, so you'll have somewhere to start your journey over to the light side.

We weren't surprised when we found out that this backstage shot of Abbey Lee Kershaw's once angelic 'do was being Pinned like crazy. Even though Kershaw has now graduated onto a darker, dirtier shade (see: grunge-chic), her almost-platinum days are still serving as hairspo for legions of women. Why? The colour is just the right side of buttery blonde and her heavy fringe and tousled texture give things a cool-girl feel.
We were chuffed to see this curly hairstyle made the most-Pinned list. The notion that the only kind of blonde that looks good is straight, flippy and cheerleader-y is exclusive at worst and boring at best. The shimmery quality of blonde highlights looks amazing on women with ringlets and/or natural texture.
We recently reported that short hair was trending (see: Lara Worthington), but it seems there was no need—Pinterest fiends were already adding this pixie-esque pic to their boards. To keep colour bright (especially important when hair is short since it's very much on show) try a brightener like Edward Beale's Hi-Light Bright Blonde Toner ($17).
Ahh J.Law, our girl crush/imaginary bestie. We hope she never stops mixing up her hairstyles and gifting us with endless inspiration for blonde strands (and so it seems, do you). This softly tousled lob is one of our favourite looks yet; all you need to create it is a dry spray wax like Toni&Guy's Creative Style Spray Wax ($16).
