Contemporary movies give us grand visions of stunning angels and bright celestial beings, so it’s no wonder so many girls are craving beautiful platinum blonde hair these days. From halos of white to curls of platinum, we’ve hand-selected our 40 favorite styles to fully satisfy your whimsical taste. So, let’s check them out!
Platinum Blonde and White Hair Trend
Very light hair, practically stripped of color, is an interesting hair color choice for women with cool skin undertones, usually natural blondes who were once fair-haired but, finally, got a dishwater blonde hair hue. The latter is often perceived as a somewhat dull and dirty shade that needs brightening. Platinum and white are just the right tones for this purpose. They can be used as a solid, all-over hair color or applied as highlights, balayage or ombre. Let’s see the examples.
#1: Soft Flaxen Blonde Curls
These white highlights are the spice of the shoulder length waves. It’s one of the best coloristic ideas for contemporary multi-dimensional blonde hair.
#2: A Dab of Platinum in Highlights
More sophisticated brown blonde hair colors are achieved either with lowlights on blonde hair or medium blonde and platinum highlights on light brown hair. This is the latter option. Braided hairstyles are often the best to show off the variations of color.
#3: Fade to White
When dye is applied lower on the length of your strands, leaving a halo of dark roots, you are getting a popular now look that can be rather soft or, on the contrary, very sharp and dramatic like in this example. This look, certainly, requires some staging.
#4: White and Dirty Blonde Combo
If you want a less traumatizing hair color solution or if you want a more complex-looking two-tone hair color, try platinum highlights on your natural dark blonde base. Long blonde hair is coveted by many because it’s so versatile. It has been an object of fashion’s beauty arsenal for years. Thanks to the first supermodels of the 60’s, we now have an obsession with long hair that can be braided and braided…and braided some more!
#5: Pretty Smooth Criminal Platinum
Going from blonde to white hair may not seem like much of a change, but it can completely change your whole appearance! Fully white blonde hair requires starting from a blank canvas. Whatever unwanted shades and irregularities that exist must be fully washed out before the new shade is applied. Even with this ‘color,’ there is a complicated dye process! But it’s oh-so-worth it…wouldn’t you agree?
#6: White Blonde Bob
Solid white blonde hair is eye-catching, edgy, and seriously bold. Wearing the color from roots to ends creates a matte effect, but watch those roots – it takes a lot of upkeep to maintain platinum white locks.
#7: Grayscale Ombre
This is a stunning example of platinum silver hair, which stands out against black roots. Try an ombre fade on dark hair and experience what it’s like to rock fairytale hair.
#8: Short Silver Crop
This short crop features a front-combed top and an awesome undercut with a shaved design. What else to ask for in a chic and dynamic short style? Wear with stylish frames and platinum or silver earrings.
#9: Long Platinum Locks
Platinum blonde is gorgeous on long hair. Here, the platinum feathers practically overtake the dark roots, which peek through melting underneath the shiny blonde. The entire effect is both pretty and super dramatic!
#10: Wavy Blonde Bob
The bob is kind of a signature style for white hair color, with good reason. Again, letting a darker color show through is perfectly acceptable – this is one style that does well with a darker underlayer. Adding waves and curls takes the style from ice queen to beach goddess.
#11: Long Bob in Silver White
This hairdo is awesome from root to tip. The brown base is beautifully highlighted by platinum white that almost seamlessly blends with the darker color. A bob with blunt ends is a great haircut choice with this color if your hair is straight.
#12: Thin Platinum Highlights
It’s entirely possible to enjoy the allure and cool beauty of platinum hair without getting an all-over bleach job. A few well-placed platinum blonde highlights do the trick. Here, they brighten up the brown base and melt it towards the ash blonde ends. Add some drama with lowlights, seen here in thin streaks of darker brown.
#13: White Blonde Curls
How cute are these loose white blonde waves? This is an ethereal hairstyle – the paleness of the platinum on brown hair is a stunning standout. Upkeep isn’t such a big deal with a subtle ombre or balayage.
#14: Silver Blonde Straight Hair
Look at this fabulous fall of silver layers. They are like molten silver! Futuristic colors, textures and silhouettes are very in right now, and that means an increasing popularity of metallic hair colors.
#15: White Hair, Blunt Bob
This looks more like platinum silver hair than blonde – blending with the black roots, the platinum tends to take on a gorgeous gray tint. The bluntly cut bob seen here ensures that the platinum white hair color itself is the star of the show. This is also a great way to get healthy ends after a big bleach.
#16: Platinum Blonde Bob with Exposed Roots
This curly bob features layered white blonde waves with plenty of dark brown roots. A gorgeously grungy throwback to platinum hairstyles popular in the early ‘00s! Think Gwen Stefani – even today, she knows how to rock a bold platinum ‘do.
#17: White Hair for Brown Base
The longer bob pictured here boasts sophisticated blonde mixed with light brown in the back and bleached to white in the front. Add some long angled layers to frame your face and you’ll get a chic medium-length ‘do for straight hair that doesn’t need additional styling to look gorgeous on a regular basis.
#18: Pale Blonde Balayage
Here’s a subtle ombre that’s almost blonde on blonde. Platinum highlights start near the roots and run down melting in the ash blonde flow. The layers create lift, bounce, and volume for extra body of thin locks.
#19: Lush and Curly
Curls add plenty of bounce to any ‘do, and today’s curls should be slightly messy, like these. Note the zigzag of the center part and light frizz that makes this curly hairstyle look perfectly casual.
#20: Blonde Ombre Waves
If you are a brunette who wants to try a low-maintenance blonde, try this gorgeous bronde balayage ombre. Get the best from the most popular coloring techniques – soft ribbons of color that start almost at the roots and a flawless fade to shiny blonde ends.
#21: Sassy Silver Pixie
A short pixie crop is cute on its own. Add a white blonde hair color with a silver tint and it’s next-level gorgeous. This ‘do is a favorite among short hipster hairstyles for girls; thick frame glasses are the perfect accessory.
#22: Cropped Platinum Bob
A short bob with wispy layers is easy to maintain for women with straight hair, plus it never goes out of style. This shade of blonde is so pale that it takes on a silvery gray tint, which makes it even more eye-catching.
#23: White Hair with Dark Undercut
Here’s a fabulous asymmetrical crop and a trendy two-tone hair color solution. The platinum blonde hair feathers forward in a stunning side sweep. Try going platinum against a dark undercut for a dramatic, attention-grabbing contrast. Maintain soft, silky hair even after bleaching by investing in a weekly deep-conditioning hair mask.
#24: Root Fade into Blonde
Root fade saves on upkeep because there’s no need to touch up the roots every few weeks. It’s also a laid-back technique that’s able to make any woman look gorgeously relaxed and endlessly stylish.
#25: Paper White Pixie Cut
The cropped pixie you see in this picture is super short, but that’s why the pale color stands out so beautifully. It certainly takes a bold, confident attitude to pull off a cut like this. The layers provide a lovely texture, but the color is the star of the show.
#26: Platinum with Darkening at the Roots
If you choose a solid platinum hair color, your hair may appear thin, one-dimensional and even lifeless on longer lengths. Darkening the roots and choosing hairstyles with textured hair will prevent this issue. Here’s a cute idea of an appropriate updo. This thick side braid brings a modern aspect to an old look. Reminiscent of a crown, this style is best for any queen or princess! You’re sure to turn some heads!
#27: Platinum and Purple Pixie Cut
Short hair in textured cuts may be dyed in several shades. The texture in this case will be evident and the results brilliant! It takes a true professional to work with shorter hair, but this look can be achieved quite easily in one sitting.
#28: Dark Blonde into White
White will blend well with your natural dark blonde hair. You may choose the transition to begin near the roots or lower in a sort of ombre. Here’s also a cute style for inspiration. Three French surface braids on one side accentuate white blonde hair and reveal the darker roots for extra dimension. Length helps to create an elegantly flowing look in the back. This style is to die for!
#29: Platinum Braided Updo
Platinum works beautiful for naturally dark blonde hair, and it will look lovely in all kinds of updos. This may just be the most elegant of all of the styles for platinum blonde hair we have collected for you. When it’s time to impress, this is your style. Getting married? This style may be a great match to a simple, laconic dress!
#30: Voluminous Platinum and Purple Curls
Almost violet, this curly hair in platinum blonde is adorable! Springs dance freely, as the natural curls are defined but incredibly soft and touchable. This can be paired with any look to instantly dress you up, and watch as others are amazed by your locks!
#31: Between Golden and Platinum
When you have darker hair, dyeing it to match the standard platinum blonde hair can sometimes offer varied results. But we love this one, which has a slightly golden overtone at the top, because it embraces the lasting reds of the natural color.
#32: Platinum Blonde Long Locks
It’s no secret that achieving white blonde hair can be a long process, especially with dark hair – and making sure it stays soft and smooth after all the bleaching can be tough. That is why a high quality serum is necessary at all times when using such strong processing chemicals. But this look is sure to shine all night long!
#33: Grown out Platinum Ombre
The trend on root darkening gives us more time to rest assured our hair color is beautiful between the colorings. But in case with black to blonde transitions, we shouldn’t postpone our visit to the salon for months.
#34: Light Golden Blonde with Platinum Highlights
Mixing warm and cool tones is an art, especially when it comes to newly invented, sophisticated hair colors. The shine the highlights add, especially seen in this twisted updo, give you a spotlight appearance and a runway-ready look!
#35: Blonde Hair with Platinum Babylights
Solid platinum blonde hair may look too bright and contradictory with cool and muted skin tones. In this case, sticking to your natural blonde with well-placed platinum babylights would be the best solution.
#36: Porcelain Princess Karate Chop
When a woman with a warm skin undertone and warm-colored eyes tries on platinum or white in hair, she’s playing with a temperature contrast. It’s a difficult job to succeed, but if you want to try, why not? Short hair is the best starting point for such an experiment.
#37: Silver Bettie
Pin-up pictures are all the rage, and this Bettie Page inspired hairstyle in silver blonde is a sweet way to pay tribute to that mystical lady of the night. A wave is set to create loose curls that cascade down almost reaching shoulders.
#38: Billy Idol’s White Wedding
There are many celebrity versions of outlandish short hair styles, and this Flock of Seagulls look falls into that category. For a bold, brave, and daring look, opt for this undercut over-comb in purplish platinum shade, just in time for any event or wedding!
#39: Posh Bob
Having natural platinum blonde hair is very rare, unless you are specifically from a Nordic or other similar latitude based country where the sun shines less in the sky, lessening the need for pigment in the hair and skin (Think polar bears!). BUT it can definitely happen! For the rest of us, there are salons, kits, and ways around the loophole – and this look does the trick nicely!
#40: Long Top Undercut
This is the best Mohawk we’ve seen in a long time. The shade is perfect, and the height is just fabulous! Sharp lines define the boundaries of hair and the buzzed sides. Ready for a motorcycle ride, rock show, or hike, this almost albino look is versatile and timeless!
Platinum blonde hair dye has a staying power, partly because of the commitment and partly because it brightens your whole appearance! Once we go platinum, most of us never return! Is it time to update your color palette with a new set of white, blonde, or platinum tones? Then jump aboard…because they’ve proven that they’re here to stay!
