How to Create Black and Blonde Hair

Creating bold hair doesn’t always mean dyeing it bright colors or layering pastel tones. The proof is on the AW21 catwalks, where the monochrome trend reigned supreme at Valentino and Comme des Garçons. This is one look that doesn’t just belong in your wardrobes; it makes a statement when you translate it to hair trends, too. Case in point: this season’s black and blonde hair color creations.

It gives bob haircuts an edge, lends dimension to long manes and works with all textures, from curly to straight.
