Cool Blond: Julianne Hough

Dorram says this shade of cool blond is eye-catching and really brings out Julianne's blue eyes.


Ashy Blond: Amanda Seyfried

Golden Blond: Carrie Underwood

Bodt says Carrie's golden hue is classic and clean with no stripy highlights. "This color is a very classic soft blond."


Highlighted Blond: Reese Witherspoon

"This color works so well because there is a perfect balance of highlights and lowlights," says Dorram.


Dirty Blond: Blake Lively

"Blake's dirty blond color is beachy and lived-in, but still polished, young and fresh," says Bodt.


Sun-Kissed Blond: Gisele Bundchen

"This sun-kissed color really lights up Gisele's face and gives an added glow," says Dorram. Bodt adds, "It's such a modern way to do an ombré, because of the face-framing highlights."


Dark Blond: Jennifer Aniston

Bodt says Jennifer's color is earthy and very realistic. "It almost has like that little kid hair color quality, with soft highlights throughout to break it up and not make it look muddy."
