This year, summer's simplest pleasures — like the taste of a fresh-lime margarita or a dip in an inflatable plastic pool — feel more comforting than ever. With life in flux, many of us are in need of a brief escape, and nostalgic beauty trends — like cherry-red-toenails and bleach-blonde vacation hair — can help provide it.
It should be no surprise then that the trending hair color of summer isn't all that groundbreaking: a return to bright, sun-kissed blonde. Just this week, almost in orchestrated tandem, so many A-listers — including Kaia Gerber, Ciara, Emily Ratajkowski, and Amandla Stenberg — debuted very blonde hair. The resulting looks are so fresh and summery, they could convince anyone to weigh the pros and cons of bleach. For proof, scroll through the gallery, ahead — and consider yourself influenced to go blonde from home.
Possibly the most shocking of all the new quarantine blondes, EmRata just dyed her virgin hair a rooted buttery blonde. Following the hair-color debut, the model revealed that she will be the new face of the Kérastase Blond Absolu Collection
come January 2021.
The multi-hyphenate singer, dancer, and model has had blonde highlights for awhile. But during this time of quarantine, her waves are looking extra golden and sunkissed — only adding to her enviable pregnancy glow.
