Cool platinum or light Swedish blonde are the hair-lights of the season – these blonde hues brighten up autumn and the hair on trendy heads. Whether long or short, this happening cool-down goes with any haircut! We present the icy looks and reveal why the super-light colours act as a rejuvenation treatment

Indulge yourself with cool blonde: Not only is it refreshing, it also makes you young. You don’t believe us? Just take a closer look at ice blonde hair: It makes us radiant, looks very special and is really hip. Ice blonde is very trendy right now. Popular models and superstars like Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding and Iggy Azalea announce the coming of an ice age that is anything but frosty – it turns up the heat. Because ice blonde hair appears sexy and delicate in one. A promising combination. And versatile too: The cool hue can be entirely cool but also appear very romantic. Depending on the styling (and outfit), the Nordic colouring looks futuristic-modern or elfishly soft. New for the ice hair age: The more matt the colour, the more classy the look!

    Caught ice cold: The colour palette ranges from cool Swedish blonde to platinum. Accurate bob, long glamour waves or an impertinent pixie – the icy in-hues present themselves to their best advantage with any haircut. Other positive features of ice blonde: The hue freshens up trendy hair colours like bronde and classics such as honey blonde and brunette. Not to mention that it acts as a rejuvenation treatment! The brilliant, bright hair frames the face almost like a halo. This makes the complexion appear fresher and younger while the brilliance visually softens wrinkles.

    For the modern fairy: Eccentricity is by no means a must with the current trend colour. In a delicate nuance, icy blonde appears weightless and sophisticated – especially with long hair that falls naturally over the shoulders and is worn with a soft centre parting. Fantastic! Most beautiful with a playful romantic look. If you are a delicate type then simple basics, clean cuts and uni-coloured clothing are a good match for the fine fairy hair as well

    Cool blonde goes good with punky styles too. With a bob cut in the frayed look, slightly teased at the back of the head, the icy autumn trend colour looks anything but girlish. How it’s done: Form a casual centre parting, tuck the hair at the front behind the ears (or secure it with bobby pins), pluck individual hairs out of the style, apply expressive makeup and you have the ice princess rock star look! Stylish: The dark hairline is not only a bonus on stage, this trend is popular in the street style as well

    Breathy pastel hues on the crown sweeten the ice look and make the cool blonde nuance even more trendy. The new colour kick in hair suits short to long-haired blondes and is convincing thanks to its youthfully fresh effect. How do you emphasise this effect? Choose outfits in popping prints and flashy colours, or go for neutral cream hues. This highlights your hip or your gentle side, as the case may be. Favourite styling: Soft waves and a long side fringe that can fall low into the face

    Light Swedish blonde is also part of the cool colour family. What makes it special? The mix of sexy and natural – like the stereotype of blonde Swedish women. Yet the attractive Scandinavian hair does not suit everybody: The cool, ashy nuance is especially flattering with a light complexion and green or blue eyes. Trend hairstyle: Tied into a low ponytail to the side. The extra-low side parting and long hair at the front secured with a sparkling hair clip on the ponytail side makes for an appealing eye-catcher

    Icy blonde hair in the pixie cut is very high up on the trend charts – worthy of platinum! The super-modern cut is an especially good match for the cool colour. Signature style for platinum blonde trendsetters: Side parting and a frayed fringe laid to the side. Outfit tip: Styled with precious metal colours, this look crowns you as a high-class ice queen! Black and white are the classics, lending extra radiance to icy blonde, while bold platinum blondes dare to explore colourful patterns

    Cool blonde is welcomed by both women and men! That makes ice blonde good for androgynous hairstyles too: Smooth, mid-length hair with a sleekly styled side parting for instance. The strict power look gains a feminine touch with the extra-light hue. Important for the in-look: Clean colouration with no visible hairline so the style appears accurate. And please be sure to take the brilliance all the way to the tips. Styling: Clear, strict silhouettes, men’s fashion accents (pinstripe fabrics, suits, shirts, men’s lace-up shoes), reduced colours and boyfriend styles

    Naturally the cool trend colour is simply made for glamorous hairstyles as well! A side-swept look for instance, with one side styled smoothly back while the other enchants with soft volume and an XL wave (twisted around an extra-large brush or hot roller). By the way, this asymmetrical style is made for the movies with shoulder-length hair too. Fashion: This red carpet hairstyle screams for a sensational dress, but adds elegance to any jeans-shirt combo as well
