It's Time To Go Blonde

Rocking a weave means total hair freedom. You can be kinky curly one day, bone straight the next, brunette on Tuesday and purple by Friday. Everything is possible in the wonderful world of weave. But within all these possibilities, there’s one hair color that many of us have yet to try: blonde.

Historically, the majority of black women have not been quick to experiment with going blonde. But thanks to blonde pioneers like Mary J. Blige, Lil' Kim, and Queen Bey, who inspired many of us to dye our hair, there’s been a growing movement toward lighter locks. We’re loving how much variety there is and how great golden hues look next to brown skin.

Between ombré, balayage, highlights, and platinum dye jobs, blonde is having its moment in diversity and we're so here for it! We highlighted some of our favorite blonde hair trends for you to try out below!

 1) Ombré

It seems like everyone has rocked an ombre at some point since the trend blew up in 2011.Because ombré is a gradual fade from a darker hue to a lighter hue, it's the easiest way to fulfill your blonde ambition! Our Mayvenn blonde hair is already set up for you to get your ombré on!

2) Balayage

Balayage highlights are highlights that look like they were achieved naturally from the sun. "Balayage" is a French term meaning "to paint," which is the method hairstylists use to achieve this style. Balayage highlights are super subtle, and never choppy.

Curly girls can go blonde too! Adding balayage highlights throughout is a great way to switch up your curly girl look.

3) Dark Roots

Dark roots is a bold choice due to the stark contrast of light and dark. If you're looking to blend your natural hair with blonde extensions, this is a great way to ease into the color without going completely blonde. Use pre-bleached Mayvenn dark roots hair to create this exact look without the mess of hair dye.

4) Platinum

The loudest of the bunch, platinum blonde hair is certainly having a moment. Why not try going platinum blonde? You're going to love the added roar this hair color gives us.

    I have a problem. I want to go blonde this summer but I want to find the perfect blonde for my skin tone! I'm not dark skin or light skin. I really don't know how to describe my skin tone...it is like a Amber honey color! But do I need 613 or 27! Both are pretty but I want to have the right color for my skin tone! Please help

      Hey Amber!

      YASSS to you going blonde! It looks amazing on darker skin tones. For an "amber honey" skin tone I'd recommend the 613. The 27 will probably wash out your skin tone, whereas the 613 will give you more of a pop! And you can always dye it deeper (or exchange it with us) if you receive it and it's not what you're looking for. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

    How many bundles should I get for a full look with a closure included? 2 or 3 with closure of course.

    Does the blonde only come in straight? No, wavy or curly? Why?

      Hi Kia!

      If you want a full look I would go with 3 bundles with your closure. Depending on the size of your head you might have hair left over!

      The blonde only comes in straight for now but it can be curled to your liking. We are also developing blonde in other textures - stay tuned! 🙂
