Contemporary movies give us grand visions of stunning angels and bright celestial beings, so it’s no wonder so many girls are craving beautiful platinum blonde hair these days. From halos of white to curls of platinum, we’ve hand-selected our 20 favorite styles to fully satisfy your whimsical taste. So, let’s check them out!
Platinum Blonde and White Hair Trend
Very light hair, practically stripped of color, is an interesting hair color choice for women with cool skin undertones, usually natural blondes who were once fair-haired but, finally, got a dishwater blonde hair hue. The latter is often perceived as a somewhat dull and dirty shade that needs brightening. Platinum and white are just the right tones for this purpose. They can be used as a solid, all-over hair color or applied as highlights, balayage or ombre. Let’s see the examples.
Platinum with Darkening at the Roots
If you choose a solid platinum hair color, your hair may appear thin, one-dimensional and even lifeless on longer lengths. Darkening the roots and choosing hairstyles with textured hair will prevent this issue. Here’s a cute idea of an appropriate updo. Long face-framing pieces plus this thick crown braid bring a modern aspect to an old look. Reminiscent of a crown, this style is best for any queen or princess! Make a long braid and wrap it around your head, securing in the center with pins. You’re sure to turn some heads!
All over Platinum Pixie Cut
Short hair in textured cuts may be dyed in a solid color. The texture in this case will be evident. White blonde hair may take a little extra processing, but the results are brilliant! It takes a true professional to work with shorter hair, but this look can be achieved quite easily in one sitting.
Dishwater Blonde Hair with Platinum Highlights
If you want a less traumatizing hair color solution or if you want a more complex-looking two-tone hair color, try platinum highlights on your natural dark blonde base. Long blonde hair is coveted by many, because it’s so versatile. It has been an object of fashion’s beauty arsenal for years. Thanks to the first supermodels of the 60’s, we now have an obsession with long hair that can be braided and braided…and braided some more!
Porcelain Princess Karate Chop
When a woman with a warm skin undertone and warm-colored eyes tries on platinum or white in hair, she’s playing with a temperature contrast. It’s a difficult job to succeed, but if you want to try, why not? Short hair is the best starting point for such an experiment.
Dark Blonde into White
White will blend well with your natural dark blonde hair. You may choose the transition to begin near the roots or lower in a sort of ombre. Here’s also a cute style for inspiration. Three French surface braids on one side accentuate white blonde hair and reveal the darker roots for extra dimension. Length helps to create an elegantly flowing look in the back. This style is to die for!
Pin-up pictures are all the rage, and this Bettie Page inspired hairstyle in silver blonde is a sweet way to pay tribute to that mystical lady of the night. A wave is set to create loose curls that cascade down the shoulders.
A Dab of Platinum in Highlights
More sophisticated brown blonde hair colors are achieved either with lowlights on blonde hair or medium blonde and platinum highlights on light brown hair. This is the latter option. Braided hairstyles are often the best to show off the variations of color.
Platinum works beautiful in ombre for naturally dark blonde hair, and it will look lovely in all kinds of updos. This may just be the most elegant of all of the styles for platinum blonde hair we have collected for you. When it’s time to impress, this is your style. Getting married? This style may be a great match to a simple, laconic dress. The sweet rose is formed by tucking layer after layer in loops.

Almost violet, this curly hair in platinum blonde is adorable! Springs dance freely, as the natural curls are defined but incredibly soft and touchable. This can be paired with any look to instantly dress you up, and watch as others are amazed by your locks!
Between Golden and Platinum
When you have darker hair, dyeing it to match the standard platinum blonde hair can sometimes offer varied results. But we love this one, which has a strong golden overtone, because it embraces the lasting reds of the natural color. You may want to use a hair toner to eliminate the unwanted tones in your hair.
Fade to White
When dye is applied lower on the length of your strands, leaving a halo of dark roots, you are getting a popular now look that can be rather soft or, on the contrary, very sharp and dramatic like in this example. This look, certainly, requires some staging.

There are many celebrity versions of outlandish short hair styles, and this Flock of Seagulls look falls into that category. For a bold, brave, and daring look, opt for this undercut over-comb in pearly white, just in time for any event or wedding!
Platinum Blonde Long Locks
It’s no secret that achieving white blonde hair can be a long process, especially with dark hair – and making sure it stays soft and smooth after all the bleaching can be tough. That is why a high quality serum is necessary at all times when using such strong processing chemicals. But this look is sure to shine all night long!
Having natural platinum blonde hair is very rare, unless you are specifically from a Nordic or other similar latitude based country where the sun shines less in the sky, lessening the need for pigment in the hair and skin (Think polar bears!). BUT it can definitely happen! For the rest of us, there are salons, kits, and ways around the loophole – and this look does the trick nicely!
Grown out Platinum Ombre
The trend on root darkening gives us more time to rest assured our hair color is beautiful between the colorings. But in case with black to blonde transitions, we shouldn’t postpone our visit to the salon for months.
Pretty Smooth Criminal Platinum
Going from blonde to white hair may not seem like much of a change, but it can completely change your whole appearance! Fully white blonde hair requires starting from a blank canvas. Whatever unwanted shades and irregularities that exist must be fully washed out before the new shade is applied. Even with this ‘color,’ there is a complicated dye process! But it’s oh-so-worth it…wouldn’t you agree?

Mixing warm and cool tones is an art, especially when it comes to newly invented, sophisticated hair colors. The shine the highlights add, especially seen in this twisted updo, give you a spotlight appearance and a runway-ready look!

Dishwater Blonde with Platinum Babylights
Platinum blonde hair may look too bright and contradictory with cool and muted skin tones. In this case, sticking to your natural blonde with just a sprinkling of platinum babylights would be the best solution.
Platinum blonde hair dye has a staying power, partly because of the commitment and partly because it brightens your whole appearance! Once we go platinum, most of us never return! Is it time to update your color palette with a new set of white, blonde, or platinum tones? Then jump aboard…because they’ve proven that they’re here to stay!
