Some men like to lighten the colour of their hair to a shade of blonde. We show you how some celebrities colour their whole hair or sections of it blonde, and provide tips for men who want to give blonde hair a try

  • David Garrett is well known for his exceptional ability to play the violin. He is also known for his stylish appearance. His thick long hair is not only part of his image but also the envy of many women. The violinist does not only attract attention because of the length of his hair but also because he colours it blonde. Few men make such striking hairstyle choices.

    Men who colour their hair blonde share two traits: 1. they are self-assured and daring; 2. they relish the attention. Blonde hair attracts attention more than brown hair, gives men an air of openness and is often associated with youth and carefree days at the beach. No doubt these men care about style. Otherwise, they would not bother with colouring their hair.

    Depending on your natural colour the results of colouring your hair blonde will be more or less obvious. David Garrett quite noticeably dyed the yellowish blonde top layer of his hair contrasting with the rest of his hair. Whereas, designer Henry Holland’s caramel blonde streaks spring much less into view because they blend well with his natural hair colour. If your natural hair colour is dark, colouring it blonde will have a very striking effect and as your hair grows the lighter portions will sit on the ends of your hair forming a stark contrast. Backstreet Boy Nick Carter (light brown hair) and the French football player Philippe Mexes (dark brown hair) have added blonde highlights to their hair. While the streaks add interest to their hairstyles, the transitions from dark to light hair clearly stand out.
