Vanilla blonde is already this summer’s hottest hair color

May 26, 2021 / Editor's picks

When Selena Gomez, Billie Eilish, and Dylan Sprouse hop on a hair trend, you know it has to be cool. Recently, a bunch of our fave celebs have been ditching their signature colours for this season’s hottest new colour on the block: vanilla blonde. And honestly, although we’ll sorely miss Billie’s iconic green and black ‘do and Selena’s glossy brunette locks, we’re not mad about it. Why? Because this shade is kind of to die for.

The world of blonde hair might have been dominated by icy cool shades and white-silver tones over the past few years, but we’re so ready for the light, warm update that this summer promises to bring. Vanilla blonde goes perfectly with warmer, sunny weather – and if that doesn’t arrive (and let’s be honest, that’s a very real possibility at this rate), then opting for this oh-so-summery shade is the perfect way to pretend.
