Blond is one of the most versatile hair colors of all because it comes in an almost infinite number of shades from icy platinum to golden caramel tones, and can be toned down with pastel rosé or lilac nuances, or worn in a duet with copper. The latter forms the basis of the popular hair color trend Strawberry Blonde. However, if you don't like it quite so bright and conspicuous, you can opt for St. Tropez Blonde this summer. Inspired by the nonchalance of French women, this is the latest shade in the blonde trend ranks and a wonderfully no-fuss hair color trend for summer 2022. We explain what defines St Tropez blonde and why this hairstyle trend after the luxury resort the Côte d'Azur is named.
St. Tropez Blonde not only sounds like summer glamour but also looks like it because the new hair color trend creates a great balance of nonchalance and elegance - just in the style of the French. And that's exactly why the new blonde trend of summer 2022 is named after the city on the French Côte d'Azur. But what exactly characterizes this? Well: St. Tropez Blonde is not a classic light blonde, but lets a dark blonde to light brown basic hair color merge with lighter blonde nuances, which provide highlights (as if kissed by the sun), especially in the lengths and tips.
This gives the hair color noble shine accents and dynamics, which makes the blonde look less monotonous and super summery. Because the light nuances also blend beautifully with the dark base, St. Tropez Blonde looks glamorous and yet natural and this is exactly what creates the balance between casual and elegant described above, which also makes the style of the French women so unique and admirable.
The St. Tropez blonde hair color trend flatters basically everyone, especially with a golden, olive-colored, or dark complexion, the highlights – which, by the way, are best applied irregularly and by hand – come into their own. But even with a lighter and cool complexion, you can definitely wear the hair color. However, the stylist should then tone it down with soft ash shades to give it cool undertones, which in turn are reflected in the skin tone.
And: Whether straight, wavy, or curly: the hair color for blonde hair works with every hair structure. Beach waves or curls make the transitions between the light and dark nuances appear particularly harmonious.
St. Tropez Blonde not only radiates summery glamour but also has another advantage. Because this is wonderfully uncomplicated to care for. On the one hand, the dark roots do not become visible as quickly as with comparatively very light blonde nuances. And anyway, you don't have to wash your hair color non-stop with silver shampoos and masks. Because the nuances already shimmer delicately golden or beige, yellowish discolorations are less visible.
Only if you opt for cool highlights do we recommend using silver shampoo from time to time. Otherwise moisturizing, color-protecting and strengthening products are sufficient for daily care. In terms of styling, we also let ourselves be inspired by the French and rely on a casual, not too perfect look that looks a bit as if a fresh sea breeze from the Côte d'Azur had swirled around it.
