    Honey blonde: Pinned low

    Long, straight and gleaming No other attributes present honey blonde in a better light. The hair colour reveals its full splendour, exuding a highly feminine, youthful and modern feel. With a narrow but overlength hair clip placed low at the back of the neck, forming a loose and sleek ponytail, the hairstyle gets that little something extra.


    Hint: An extra bit of glossy spray makes your hair look healthy and well cared for – a brilliant eye catcher

    Honey blonde: Mini chignon

    'One’s company, two’s a crowd, and three’s a party' – this quote from Andy Warhol was taken to heart by Marc Jacobs who is definitely having a (techno) party! The designer styles his models with three twirled mini chignons on top of the head for a look highly reminiscent of the nineties. This does not require any special styling skill but the right attitude: wild, boisterous – the nineties in other words. A genuine look with honey blonde hair.

    The twirling technique reveals the various colour facets of the trendy hue to their best advantage. Makeup: The eyes can be emphasised with dark eye shadow in the nineties style

    Honey blonde: Creped ponytail

    Creped hair is making a comeback – at least according to designer Stella McCartney. Far less wild than in the eighties, the retro waves are partially styled and tied into a low ponytail in 2015.


    The creped look works especially well in light hair for a sophisticated effect in honey blond

    Honey blonde: Quiff with creped streaks

    Designer Gretchen Jones likes the creped retro trend too. She styles the zigzag waves into a honey blonde mane and tops the look with a discreet quiff.


    Hint: The more flashy the hairstyle, the more discreet the makeup! The creped look with quiff works best with simple nude makeup and a hint of matt red on the lips
