Let's raise our glasses to the new shades of champagne-coloured hair. Soft champagne blonde and beige blonde are the favourite hair fashion colours in 2012. Read below about the celebrities who already reached for the colouring brush
Platinum blonde was the fashion hair colour of 2011. The trend for the 2012 season is champagne blonde. Last year’s white-blonde is replaced by softer beige blonde and brilliant champagne blonde shades. This trend has its advantages. Dependent on the natural colour of your hair, much less bleaching is required. Of course, some but not quite as much bleaching is necessary to prepare the hair for the new shades of blonde.

Fashion designers also embrace the softer shades of blonde. This was very apparent when they presented the 2012 spring and summer fashion at the Fashion Week. A group of elfin blondes with long flowing hair modelled Rodarte's girlish fashion. Their hair shimmered in beige blonde and cool champagne shades.
Chief designer for the Calvin Klein fashion house Francisco Costa is known for creating clean minimalistic looks. This year, he chose models like Patricia van der Vliet und Hanne Gaby Odiele to show off his delicate creations. The beige blonde hair of these models highlights the impression of innocence in the designer's line.
On the other side of the fashion spectrum, Anna Sui invited the onlookers to an excursion into the 1970s. Her beige blonde models presented colourful prints, blouses with bows and frills and a variety of accessories. We are not surprised that 'Miss Hippie Chic' engaged models like the 25-year old Canadian supermodel Jessica Stam who is currently very popular with designers and fashion houses. Her long beige blonde mane may have something to do with it.
What is the difference between beige blonde and champagne blonde? Here is our answer:
Beige blonde is close to the classical light to medium blonde hair colours with their natural lustre, silky appearance and medium pigmentation. Different from champagne blonde, beige blonde hair always shows a slightly golden tinge. For a more brilliant effect dark blondes and brunettes should bleach their hair slightly before they apply the beige blonde colorant. Medium to light blondes are able to apply the colour treatment without bleaching.
Beige blonde hair, a slightly tanned complexion and green eyes are a particularly attractive combination.
Champagne blonde hair looks like very light naturally blonde hair. In contrast to beige blonde hair with its golden shimmer, champagne blonde hair has a cool sheen. Only few have such a light natural hair colour. Therefore, the hair must be bleached before it can be colour-treated. For champagne blonde hair you need a colour treatment with a cool rather than a golden finish. Champagne blonde hair looks particularly beautiful in combination with a light complexion and blue eyes.
