Head over to TikTok, and you’ll be met with hundreds of hair trends to try out this winter. Although I love how much inspiration the app has to offer, it’s rare that I find a trend that I am truly obsessed with. However, after coming across videos of “teddy bear blonde” hair transformations, I practically raced to the salon to book an appointment. In my opinion, this is one of the coolest, most wearable hair colours out there this season, and it seems that I’m not the only one who thinks this. The hashtag #teddybearblonde already has over 80 thousand views on TikTok, and celebrities such as Rihanna and Sofia Richie Grainge are all giving the colour a go. Now, you might be asking yourself, what makes this hair trend different from normal blonde hair? Luckily for you, I’ve spent hours researching what this colour actually involves, so keep on scrolling for everything you need to know…
Rihanna’s hair stylist recently shared the star’s “teddy bear blonde” hair transformation.
The clue to this trend is all in the name. The hair colour is meant to be similar to a teddy bear, with a combination of blonde and brunette shades. The result is a gorgeous, golden finish with lots of dimension. I happen to think that this trend is perfect for the winter months thanks to the warm hue. The most common way to achieve this look would be to get highlights or balayage. Depending on your natural hair colour, your hairdresser can totally tailor your highlights or balayage to give you the perfect “teddy bear” shade. The best thing about this trend is that it often features a darker root, which means those of you with naturally brunette hair won’t have to worry as much about the upkeep, as the colour should grow out a lot more naturally. So, if you’re thinking about giving this low maintenance, super cool hair trend a go, keep on scrolling for all of the inspiration you need…
