Amazing Shades of Strawberry Blonde Hair
Blondes really do have more fun! If you’re torn between your love of blonde and red hair, strawberry blonde offers the perfect mixture of these striking colors, and comes in a variety of shades to work with almost any complexion. Warm strawberry blondes look great against fair or neutral skin tones, while the cooler auburn side of strawberry makes warmer complexions pop. Strawberry blonde is a rare natural hair color but thank goodness for hair dye, right? Although it is a rare shade, choosing to go strawberry blonde will have you in excellent company amongst celebrities like Blake Lively, Rachel McAdams, and Sienna Miller. For darker haired women, going strawberry is a process best left in the hands of a professional, while blondes can try experimenting at home with semi-permanent colors. Temporary dye will allow you to experiment with different tones and hues to find your perfect shade. We’ve compiled 20 types of strawberry blonde hair to help you decide your ideal shade amongst these pale pastels and vibrant golden gingers.
1Pumpkin colored with loose waves
This beautiful peachy strawberry blonde features lots of warm orange and tangerine hues that are especially vibrant against porcelain skin and blue eyes. Pairing this look with a pastel rose lip allows makeup to contrast with the hair color without being too distracting.
2Blonde with reddish/brown low lights
If peach and tangerine tones are too loud for your liking, try this golden blonde with auburn lowlights. The color contrast here is subtle, but creates a softly dynamic color that’s timelessly elegant that pops without being too over the top.
3Warm Strawberry Honey Blonde
Another subtle strawberry style, this look features warm honey blonde tones, and only a slight hint of red undertone. The overall look lands right in the sweet spot between bold and boring, making this a perfect choice for your first time going strawberry blonde.
4Ginger and Gold Blonde highlights
How gorgeous is this “all red” look? Fully embracing her love of red, Nicole Kidman paired her gingery blonde with true red choices in both makeup and wardrobe. Her hair is full of golden blonde highlights that land this look in the strawberry blonde category, an especially beautiful choice against her piercing blue eyes and ivory skin.
5Fiery Copper And Blonde Hues
Rarely one to make a style misstep, Blake Lively’s foray into strawberry blonde was a stroke of style genius. The copper and blonde tones had her skin looking extra radiant, while understated natural makeup choices don’t distract from this show stopping hair color. We give her an A+ for this look.
6Pastel Strawberry Blonde
A softer strawberry tone, this style is made up of muted red and blonde tones to create a pastel strawberry blonde look. This understated style is a good option for women who want to experiment with color that’s new but not too bold, and looks especially fun when paired with a retro style like these long centre parted bangs.
7Beach blonde with strawberry highlights
This is the perfect example of how to play with color without drastically changing your look. With medium strawberry highlights added to her signature beach blonde mane, Cameron Diaz’s skin looks warm and glowing, while her piercing blue eyes continue to pop.
8Pale strawberry A-line blunt cut
This intense A line blunt cut looks dreamy instead of harsh when colored in muted orange and blondes to create a pastel pink hue. Very pale at the roots, this look is best worn by fair women with porcelain or ivory skin.
9Strawberry blonde Ombre
Always adventurous with her style choices, Katy Perry’s version of strawberry blonde is in a reverse ombre style that transitions from golden blonde to a coppery ginger tone. Platinum highlights at the top keep this color looking extra dimensional, and helps roots to balance out big curls at the ends.
10Pale Light Blonde Ombre
A softer strawberry ombre style, this look features a subdued shade of red on top, and pale blonde color in a more subtle ombre fashion. Adding this color to your ends involves the potentially damaging lightening process, making this a style to stay away from if you’ve already got damaged ends.
11Strawberry To Platinum Ombre
This style features a darker strawberry auburn right at the roots, and transitions into a very pale platinum throughout most of the hair’s length. A trendy and chic color choice, this style is best worn by women who don’t mind frequent trips to the salon to maintain this multi-tonal ombre. We love the choppy look along with the waves as it really brings out an effortless chic look.
12Long layers with dark roots
If you want something super trendy try these super long layers. Long hair with lots of layers is perfect for showing off dimensional color. Roots are left a dark brunette shade that helps to make the strawberry blonde highlights look even more vibrant. This rich color contrast is best shown off when hair is worn in curled or braided styles.
13Two tone long waves
This two tone style with long beachy waves combines vibrant red with golden blonde, making it a bold color choice for women who want their hair to be even more eye-catching than a standard strawberry blonde color.
14Super light sandy strawbery blonde
Now firmly entrenched in color trends, it’s hard to believe dark roots were once considered a huge hair faux pas. This sandy blonde hair has dark reddish roots, while subtle strawberry highlights are spread throughout the rest of hair. This color is not intense and can easily be hidden by wearing a side part or by pulling your hair back.
15Gingery blunt Bob with side bang
Ginger and chestnut tones play together in this darker version of a strawberry blonde. Hair with this kind of orange tone tends to match too closely with very warm, tanned complexions, but it makes a nice autumn color choice for women whose skin is on the fair side. Pair this hair color with smoky eyes and nude lips makeup.
16Chic and Short cut
Although many strawberry blondes wear the shade with a fun and trendy cut, Cate Blanchett proves that the shade looks equally stunning on shorter, chic hairstyles. The color is mostly golden blonde with subtle ginger spread throughout, and looks especially good on women with blue-green eyes. Pair this look with your favorite coral lipstick and you’re set to go.
17Madonna strawberry blonde waves
A soft hairstyle for the often edgy Queen of Pop, Madonna’s strawberry hair is colored in a layered style that’s fairly pale on the outside with deeper copper tones underneath. Neutral choices in her makeup and outfit allow this color to be the star of her look, but if you prefer more colorful clothing choices opt for something like violet or aqua.
The warm golden and auburn tones in this color are ideal for making hazel or light brown eyes come alive while giving skin a sunkissed glow. A strawberry blonde that doesn’t feature much blonde, this is a good color choice it you’re transitioning from a lighter summer shade to something more rich for the fall.
19Bold blonde highlights
While neither of the colors used here are especially intense, the blonde highlights are liberally applied throughout the hair’s length, for a big statement style that isn’t trying to look natural. To make the most out of the contrasting colors, wear hair in big, bold curls.
20Strawberry pixie with auburn highlights
Michelle Williams’ trendsetting blonde pixie got a boost of depth and sophistication when she went for an auburn strawberry blonde shade. This deep pale orange-strawberry blonde works wonders with hazel eyes and peachy cheeks, helping Michelle to look fresh-faced and chic at the same time. While Michelle is daring in wearing her eyebrows in a matching shade, it’s fine to wear this hair color with your naturally darker brows.
