5 Most Common Hair Colors for Blonde Hair With Color Underneath

By Sharon R. Lee

If you're a blonde and looking for ways to make your hair stand out, then you've come to the right place.

Blondes are in high demand so much so that many consider them rare. If you want to be one of the few who can pull off this look, then read on! We've found some cool ideas for making your blondes even blonder.

Blonde hair with brown underneath

The color is a dark brown, but it’s not too dark. A natural color that looks like you just dyed your hair at home.

You can use this as a temporary color to give your roots some depth and length, until you get around to coloring them again.

Blonde hair with blue underneath

Blue is a great option for blonde hair because it's a cool color and will make your blonde stand out. If you have light skin and darker hair, blue can give your face a little more definition and make it pop.

Blonde hair with purple underneath

Blonde hair with purple underneath is one of the most common blonde hair styles and it's easy to see why. Purple has been used as a base color, highlights, lowlights, ombre and much more.

If you're looking to try out this look, consider using something like Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Nourishing Color Creme in 60 Natural Medium Brown or Natural Dark Brown for your base color or even a lighter shade like 50-60 for those with light colored hair.

Next you can use Pravana Vivids Blue Violet for highlights and/or lowlights (you can also do all three).

You could also use Pravana Vivids Rose Gold for an ombre effect if you want something more subtle than these choices offer up!

Blonde hair with pink underneath

Pink is a great color for blonde hair because it's a way to experiment with your look while still remaining low-key.

If you're someone who doesn't want to make major changes, but still wants to change things up, then pink underneath is perfect for you.

It will add an element of fun to your hairstyle without being too much and if you decide that pink isn't the right look after all, then no worries! You can always go back to blonde later.

Blonde hair with red underneath

If you're looking to add a more natural look with your blonde hair, red undertones are a great option. By adding red into your strands, it will give them more dimension and depth without being too flashy or unnatural-looking.

These color options will make your blonde hair stand out even more.

  • Blonde Hair With Red Underneath

If you want to make your blonde hair look extra bright and bold, give it a red base. A combination of dark red and light pink will work well for this look. If you don’t have naturally dark hair, consider adding in some hot pink or fire engine red highlights instead of going for the full head dye job. The options are endless when it comes to color combinations — just be sure to maintain consistency from root to tip so that no one can tell where one color starts and another begins!

  • Blonde Hair With Blue Underneath

A deep purple shade underneath blonde hair is an excellent way to add dimension without making too much of a statement — which makes it perfect if you love wearing your natural locks but still want them to stand out in any crowd! Try pairing this combo with lavender highlights on top for maximum impact while still staying within the bounds of professionalism (or at least semi-professionalism).

7 Tips for Maintaining Your Blonde Hair

  • Maintain Your Hair

To keep your blonde hair looking great, you need to take care of it like you would any other color. You want to be sure that you are using the right products and following all of the instructions on the packaging. A good shampoo and conditioner will help keep your hair hydrated and healthy, while a good heat protectant will prevent damage from heat styling tools like blow dryers or straighteners. If your blonde locks are feeling dry at any point throughout the month, try using a deep conditioning mask once every week or two!

  • Use Color-Sensitive Products

If you have lightened or highlighted strands in addition to your blonde tresses, then make sure that the products that touch them are color-sensitive! This includes shampoos and conditioners as well as styling products like hairspray, mousse (or mouse), gels/creams/lotions/serums etc.. If they aren't specifically labeled as "color safe", steer clear!

How to Get Blonde Hair with Highlights

The first step to getting your hair blonde with highlights is picking a color. The best way to do this is by going in for a consultation with your stylist, who can help you pick out the perfect shade for your skin tone and eye color. If you're looking for suggestions, here are five of our favorite blonde shades for every type of hair:

  • Platinum (for fair skin tones)

  • Champagne/Soft Blonde (for medium-toned complexions)

  • Golden Blonde/Caramel Blonde (for darker complexions)

10 Reasons Why You Should Be Wearing Blonde Hair Highlights with Color Underneath

There are many ways that you can wear blonde hair with color underneath. Some of the most common are subtle ombre highlights, or a full head of color underneath your blonde hair.

If you choose to go with the latter, then it's important to get the right shade of blonde so that you don't look like a 90s prom queen or “peroxide bottle” (a term for an early 2000s trend where women would dye their entire head of hair platinum blond).

If you want to add some subtlety or dimension to your hairstyle without going full out on permanent dye, then having some roots is a great choice! This allows for more versatility in styling options and colors down the line—you'll never want for different looks again!


If you’re looking to stand out from the crowd, these hair colors are sure to do it. Each of these options has a unique look and feel that will help you make your statement. Whether you want something subtle or bolder in nature, we have what it takes for all kinds of people!
