Earlier this year, it seemed like icy blue was the only bright hue we’d wear all year round, however, as predicted by celebrity Hair Stylist Royce Samuel, this is the year of the hair colour craze!

Now, most of our beauty and lifestyle faves are falling in love with the idea of a brighter shade. Enter blonde hair, the magical shade that we recently noticed all over our Instagram feed. Although the colour is not a new invention – remember when Stephanie Coker Aderinokun had that bomb blonde fringe? and then Kehinde Smith totally showed us that beach blonde weaves were made for dark skin women – we are definitely falling in love with the hair colour all over again.

So before your next hair appointment, get inspired to try something new with these looks by South African BellaStylistas who have proven blondes really do have more fun!

This beauty influencer recently got the big chop and immediately dyed her hair bright gold blonde. She often alternates between her own buzz cut and weaves but in the same shade. It definitely emphasizes her complexion and gives her a glow like no other!

This icy colour is for definitely one for rule breakers. The cut and colour of Tshepi’s wig are so 2019! ​​​​​ We love the cool-girl feel matched with a youthful bright blonde.

This style has become one of Lungile’s signature looks and crosses the bridge between a sharp black and bright platinum blonde. The contrasting roots give this hue a bit of dimension and of course, she nails the modern feminine look with an edgy cut.

This one shade wonder meets old Hollywood glam is a such a statement look. No wonder Buhle had everyone’s attention at #15yearsofE. The luscious, golden waves mixed with white undertones is a match made in heaven!
