'Bronde,' the hybrid hair color celebs seem to be loving

June 17, 2010 |  2:01 pm

“Bronde” is just what it sounds like – blond hair that isn’t really blond and not exactly brown either but a combination of the two. It's hairstylist-speak. Or at least it's what colorist and “Shear Genius” judge Kim Vo is calling the shade that Natalie Portman, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lopez have been sporting.

"If blonde and brown were to have a love child, it would be bronde!" says Vo, who paints select layers of the top of the hair with two different volumes of color lifting creams to get what he says is a sun-kissed look with dimension and depth.

The bronde look may be the new trend in blond highlights, but I still prefer shades with names like dirty, platinum and Champagne.
