Unlocking the Beauty of Expensive Honey Blonde: Tips, Trends, and Care

Written By Team Que 26 Sep 2023
Unlocking the Beauty of Expensive Honey Blonde: Tips, Trends, and Care

The Expensive honey blonde hair colour trend has us stopping in our tracks! A perfect new honey blond shade  has caught our eye and we are about to give you the full rundown all about it. We will cover everything from what it is and how it looks SO good, how to ask for it in a salon, hair care routine and all the products that will keep your colour and hair healthy.

What is an Expensive Honey Blonde?

Expensive honey is a warm blonde hair colour trend that looks and feels expensive. This is the perfect shade of blonde, It’s warm yet bright, light but not heavily bleached looking. Think Blake Lively in her gossip girl era with her bright honey hair! It’s the perfect balance of healthy hair and healthy colour, which is what we are all about at Que Colour. 

How can I achieve an expensive Honey Blonde?

Finding the right colourist for you is essential, this look can be achievable for everyone with the right colourist! Consultations are important to communicate with your stylist to define and agree on a plan to achieve your look. Achieving this colour has more factors than you think. To keep your colour lasting and hair healthy to maintain the colour, regular haircuts and quality products will be your best friend! 

Is the Expensive Honey Blonde colour high maintenance?

This Expensive Honey blonde colour is lower maintenance at the salon but higher maintenance at home. You can always get away with more regrowth and time between visits BUT you must be using the best home hair care and have regular smaller treatments to keep the hair as shiny as possible for that expensive feeling.

Visiting the salon regularly for trims and haircuts is essential (split ends is not the vibe). Investing in good quality products to help with keeping your colour healthy and glossy is also extremely important.

When it comes to regrowth, it will be different for everyone but generally you can expect 10-12 weeks for a full colour top up with a half head colour every 5-6 weeks for minimal regrowth. 

What to ask for in a salon

For this colour we would recommend asking for warm sun kissed tones but not brassy. Think Werther's original caramel not caramello koala. You can also ask to add in some soft vanilla pieces to balance with the honey tones so it doesn't look yellow, soft natural placed foils over lots of heavy bleach foils.

As with any hair service, to ensure 100% satisfaction with your hair, bring along 3-4 independently selected pictures or videos with you to show your stylist. This helps to create a benchmark and a creative visual of what you love. It also helps to give us a broader visual of things you maybe don’t like about one style but do about the other. This helps us be realistic about any modifications that you may need to suit your hair in real life.

It’s important to remember here that this contrast in lightness is different on the screen to real life, so we can always opt for a more subtle change first that can then be built on in time.

What skin tones best suit Honey Blonde?

A warm blonde shade, like the expensive honey blonde suits warm sun kissed toned skin, while tones like ash blonde, go better with cool-toned skin, however, this hair colour can be universally flattering. Expensive honey blonde goes amazing with light eyes, it really accentuates them to make them pop.

I’m Blonde - WHAT NOW?

There are a few things to factor when keeping your hair and colour healthy. Looking after your hair at home is just as important as regular appointments at a salon. This colour looks SO good because it relies on the health of your hair, healthy hair reflects more light and creates that beautiful glow. We always recommend a treatment at the end of your service to finish with a shine.

A few of our faves here at Que Colour to keep your hair healthy and colour vibrant are the Sebastian Cellophanes colourshine treatments, the Christophe Robin colour cleansing mask and the Christophe Robin Golden Blonde shade variation mask.

Christophe Robin colour cleansing mask

At Que we offer a service called a Colourshine. Free from ammonia, alcohol and peroxide, Sebastian Cellophanes are a “hair-friendly” colour gloss. As well as heightening the reflectivity of each strand, Cellophanes strengthen hair, preserves natural moisture balance and protects against UV. Now, glossy, translucent colour means stronger, healthier-looking hair.

These are accessible, quick treatments that you can find at most hair salons! And the best part is it is an affordable way to get a celebrity-worthy shine. To keep this shine we recommend getting a colourshine every 6 - 8 weeks!

Colour shield cleansing Mask

Colour shield cleansing Mask  is an essential product for any coloured hair.  It is a gently low-foaming cleansing mask that is expertly created to help prolong the vibrancy of colour treated hair, respects hair’s natural precious oils so lengths feel intensely nourished with a glossy, long-lasting radiance.This mask envelopes your hair in an egg white like consistency and leaves are soft as silk.


The Golden blonde shade variation mask
The Golden blonde shade variation mask is a pigmented hair mask that provides hair colour treatments to neutralise unwanted tones or to enhance your natural hair colour. This buttery toned colour correcting mask corrects dull, transparent blonde tones to boost and restore pure, radiant colour. It is filled with apricot extracts, nourishing buriti oil and creamy almond butters. This is such a quick and easy way to extend the life of your colour at home between salon treatments with a 5–20-minute hair toner mask treatment.
