Here’s a super shade of white-blonde that’s softer than platinum- or ice-blue blonde.  It’s closer to the color of pearls, making it a better choice for pale skin with warm undertones.  The braid style is new, too, with wide, flat head braids creating gorgeous texture, highlighted by white and beige balayage!  There’s another modern touch in the twist of hair above the fastener at the back. And the layered pony-tail is a messy finishing detail to a casual, trend-setting look!

The quest for stunning wedding hairdo‘s and cool holiday hairstyles means demand for braided hairstyles for long hair is at its peak right now.  And here’s a gorgeous brown and blonde hair design for a young bride or brides-maid.  One long braid starts at the forehead as a small section, which is then gradually thickened and tied off at the nape.  The rest of the hair hangs in a tousled pony-tail in a semi-formal, half-up hairstyle.  It’s a modern-classic look with a fashionable beige-blonde ombré creating wonderful patterns at the sides and through the braid.  Simple and sophisticated for a stylish bride!

What a gorgeous golden color this is!  And with the braid pattern resembling a wheat-sheaf, this lovely up-style is full of a ‘country hay-making’ summery vibe.  This is a style that will take you anywhere and keep you looking and feeling cool and comfy.  The braids are wound around the head to create a beautiful, golden band with lots of interesting texture.   And loose sections break the lines to frame the face and keep this pretty and practical look chic, but casual!

Mega-messy ash-blonde & beige fish-tail braid

Here’s a very messy single braid style in the latest hair-fashion colors of ash-beige-blonde over dark brown roots.  These colors suit pale skin types with cool undertones best.  The hair has been swept back off the face into a huge, loose braid with exaggerated links draped down the back.  There’s a cute fish-bone braid decorating the back, which doesn’t really match the messy undone style of the design.  We love the idea of a pulled-out, messy fish-tail-style plait.  However, in this case, the stylist has probably overdone the loose texture, which is in danger of blurring the fabulous shape!

Moving from espresso, through beige and blonde, the shades have a neutral to ash tone that’s ultra-modern and very special!

Here’s a playful hairstyle that takes this season’s colors and blends them into a super, braid design!  The braiding is really artistic, creating a lovely woven shape down to the fastener covered by a white hair strand. Then the hair stylist has created a cute pink and white, bubble pony-tail. There’s a relaxed vibe in the messy finish and several inches of loose hair at the end.  The top section shows balayage in beige and brown, and 4 fabulous colors create a gorgeous swirl of patterns and texture.  It’s a great biker-babe style!

With butterfly hair slides and a quirky curve in the braid, this is a romantic version of the popular fish-tail braid!  These beige blonde highlights are near the model’s dark-blonde shade, creating a more natural color design. This suits the windswept finish and butterfly details also inspired by nature. The stylist has drawn the sides back quite loosely to form a large-linked hair-knot at the nape.  The defined tips have an untidy finish, below an elastic covered by a band of hair.  There’s interesting horizontal and vertical movement in this expertly textured braided hairstyle!
