View Full Version : What shade of blonde is my hair? (Pics)

April 1st, 2014, 12:09 AM
I've heard some people referring to different shades of blonde as numbers, or calling their hair medium or dark blonde, etc. Where does mine fall on that spectrum? I'm totally clueless. The only thing I'm fairly certain of is that I'm somewhere on the golden end of the scale, as opposed to the cooler tones. It doesn't help that my hair looks different in different lightings, everything from a goldish almost-platinum on the very ends in direct sunlight, to brownish-greyish in bad indoor light, and everything in between. These pictures are what it looks like most of the time, so I guess this would be its "normal" color.

Any help is very much appreciated, this has been bugging me for a while!

It looks like it is between level 8 and 9 neutral to me.

Our hair color seems to be quite similar. I've never paid much attention to the numbers that people throw out (level x blonde). I usually describe myself as a honey blond. My hair is on the warm end of the spectrum, golden with quite a bit of red. In the winter I tend to be described as strawberry blonde, though it lightens a lot in the summer. Honey seems like a good description though, as it covers all the variations :)

Level 8 gold. Same as mine, except mine's more ash/beige. Everyone's hair color will move around between at least 3 levels though, so your hair probably looks like a 7 indoors and a 9 outside in the sun.

I would say it's about a level 7 and definitely looks warm.

I'd call that a light to mid-tone blonde.

I see level 8G with 9G highlights and a 7N base.

Wow ErinLeigh, that's very specific.

I can only agree it's a mid-range golden blonde. Mine used to be about that color but with more copper.
