Should you go polar blonde or platinum blonde this spring?

platinum blonde vs. polar blonde

As the warm weather approaches, will your new blonde color be the cold, polar version or will you opt for something a bit sunnier and go platinum?

Polar blonde

The color: Polar blonde is very light in color – almost white. However it's important to note that it's not as silver as granny hair.

The style: You've already seen this color before, on Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. Sure the shade may be cold, but it will make you look very, very chic. Intricate braided styles look particularly great on polar blonde hair.

What the editors say: Polar blonde is a great alternative to the traditional sunny blonde colors we often see in the summer - however it does require a lot of upkeep (regular hair treatments, salon visits for touch-ups), so it's very important to be certain that you're ready to make this kind of commitment and investment before booking your appointment at the salon.

Platinum blonde

The color: Platinum blonde, like polar blonde, is an extremely light shade, however the undertones are warmer, more yellow.

The style: The best thing about this color is how versatile it is. You can wear so many different styles with it – a wob, a high ponytail, or even boxer braids à la Kim Kardashian.

What the editors say: Platinum blonde will always be a wonderful summer color. It's very feminine, easy to pull off, and reflects the light beautifully.
