"Blondes Have More Fun", an old Rod Stewart song asserted in 1978. The British newspaper 'The Sun' surveyed 3,000 women to determine whether there was any truth to the statement in the song. According to this survey, blondes indeed party more than brunettes and women with other hair colours. Enjoy looking at our photos of successful blonde stars and learn how you can have gorgeous blonde hair!

  • “Blondes First!” Superstar Marilyn Monroe was the trailblazer for many blonde stars today. In the 1940s, Marilyn Monroe reluctantly bleached her naturally dark brown hair because a photographer had demanded it for an advertisement. This change got her noticed and almost instantly catapulted her into worldwide fame as an actress. Model Heidi Klum made the covers of glossy magazines only after bleaching her naturally brown hair wheat blonde.
     
    Is going blonde really a career booster? There may be something to it. Publicity sells, and blonde stars look particularly glamorous on red carpets and in front of cameras. Without question, aside from being a hair colour, blonde hair also makes a statement.

    It's no wonder that blonde stars keep dominating in 2011. Light-haired women are very popular since ancient times. In long bygone centuries, naturally dark-haired Greek women lightened their hair using precious saffron at great expense.  
     
    Now, about 2,500 years later, we lighten hair as gently as possible using advanced hydrogen peroxide formulations with various conditioners. Such formulations turn even very dark hair into a blonde mane in only a few steps.  

    Admire the blonde stars in our gallery below and see what the current trend colours are. Don't forget to check out our tips and tricks for keeping blonde hair beautiful for a long time.

    Blonde Stars: Bar Refaeli

    Bar Rafaeli looks radiant despite her separation from her ex Leonardo DiCaprio. Her wheat blonde hair has captured the golden light of the sun. Tip: You can easily achieve the sun-drenched look using sun-in sprays or lotions. Then allow your hair to dry in the sun or use a blow-dryer. Heat enhances the bleaching effect of sun-in sprays

    Blonde Stars: Malin Åkerman

    Her hair style is hot right now. The ends of her hair are lighter than the hair close to the roots and look like bleached by the sun. Malin Åkerman is a Canadian actress of Swedish descent and this hair style is made for her. In case you like this sunny hair style for your own hair, simply use a broad brush to paint it into your hair. It is important to blur the lines to create soft natural transitions rather than hard colour steps

    Blonde Stars: Pixie Lott

    Modern hippie and singer Pixie Lott allowed her platinum blonde mane to air-dry, before loosely gathering the front strands of her hair in the neck. Her casual hair style is suitable for work and play but is also fit for an evening party. Hair like this requires excellent care because bleached hair dries out faster and tends to become brittle. As a result, the hair looks dull and may break. We recommend a daily conditioning rinse for colour-treated or bleached hair and a weekly hair mask. Such TLC creates shiny blonde hair and provides the hair with much needed moisture

    Blonde Stars: Carey Mulligan

    Carey Mulligan sticks with the blonde colour but loves to vary the length of her hair. Sometimes, she wears a short pixie and at other times she tries a bob or almost shoulder-length hair. The ash blonde hair colour fits the light complexion of this British actress so perfectly that most admirers don’t realize that Carey is a natural brunette. The roots of her hair need regular colour touch-ups to keep dark roots at bay. Touch-ups should best be done in four-week intervals and the colorant should be applied to the root portion of the hair only. In order to keep hair damage to a minimum, the colorant should be worked through the entire hair only at the end of the application time and shortly before rinsing the hair

    Vanilla is a common cooking ingredient. As a colour, soft vanilla shades are a new hair colour trend. In our photo, the British singer Natasha Bedingfield demonstrates this new fashion colour. In order to achieve this vanilla shade you must adhere to the recommended application times for the colorant. Under no circumstances should you shorten the application time. Otherwise, you may discover a not so attractive yellow tinge in your hair. If despite all precautions this happens anyway, use shampoo for grey hair as remedy. These shampoos contain purple colour pigments, which can neutralise the yellow tinge

    Blonde Stars: Molly Sims

    You may not be quite sure whether blonde is the right hair colour for you. If this is the case you may like to follow model and actress Molly Sims' example. First add a few blonde streaks to your hair and then set some more. Make sure that the streaks are fairly thin. This creates a more natural look. Setting streaks has an advantage other than the beautiful appearance. Bleaching results in a rougher hair structure making the hair more manageable and giving it a fuller appearance
