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 18 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.
#1: Soft Flaxen Blonde Curls

These white highlights are the spice of the shoulder length waves. It’s one of the best coloristic ideas for contemporary multi-dimensional blonde hair.
#2: 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.
#3: 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.
#4: White and Dirty Blonde Combo
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!
#5: 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?
#6: White Blonde Bob
Solid white blonde hair is eye-catching, edgy, and seriously bold. Wearing the color from roots to ends creates a matte effect, but watch those roots – it takes a lot of upkeep to maintain platinum white locks.
#7: Grayscale Ombre
This is a stunning example of platinum silver hair, which stands out against black roots. Try an ombre fade on dark hair and experience what it’s like to rock fairytale hair.
#8: Short Silver Crop
This short crop features a front-combed top and an awesome undercut with a shaved design. What else to ask for in a chic and dynamic short style? Wear with stylish frames and platinum or silver earrings.
#9: Long Platinum Locks
Platinum blonde is gorgeous on long hair. Here, the platinum feathers practically overtake the dark roots, which peek through melting underneath the shiny blonde. The entire effect is both pretty and super dramatic!
#10: Wavy Blonde Bob
The bob is kind of a signature style for white hair color, with good reason. Again, letting a darker color show through is perfectly acceptable – this is one style that does well with a darker underlayer. Adding waves and curls takes the style from ice queen to beach goddess.
#11: Long Bob in Silver White
This hairdo is awesome from root to tip. The brown base is beautifully highlighted by platinum white that almost seamlessly blends with the darker color. A bob with blunt ends is a great haircut choice with this color if your hair is straight.
#12: Thin Platinum Highlights
It’s entirely possible to enjoy the allure and cool beauty of platinum hair without getting an all-over bleach job. A few well-placed platinum blonde highlights do the trick. Here, they brighten up the brown base and melt it towards the ash blonde ends. Add some drama with low-lights, seen here in thin streaks of darker brown.
#13: White Blonde Curls
How cute are these loose white blonde waves? This is an ethereal hairstyle – the paleness of the platinum on brown hair is a stunning standout. Upkeep isn’t such a big deal with a subtle ombre or balayage.
#14: Silver Blonde Straight Hair
Look at this fabulous fall of silver layers. They are like molten silver! Futuristic colors, textures and silhouettes are very in right now, and that means an increasing popularity of metallic hair colors.
#15: White Hair, Blunt Bob
This looks more like platinum silver hair than blonde – blending with the black roots, the platinum tends to take on a gorgeous gray tint. The bluntly cut bob seen here ensures that the platinum white hair color itself is the star of the show. This is also a great way to get healthy ends after a big bleach.
#16: Platinum Blonde Bob with Exposed Roots
This curly bob features layered white blonde waves with plenty of dark brown roots. A gorgeously grungy throwback to platinum hairstyles popular in the early ‘00s! Think Gwen Stefani – even today, she knows how to rock a bold platinum ‘do.
#17: White Hair for Brown Base
The longer bob pictured here boasts sophisticated blonde mixed with light brown in the back and bleached to white in the front. Add some long angled layers to frame your face and you’ll get a chic medium-length ‘do for straight hair that doesn’t need additional styling to look gorgeous on a regular basis.
#18: Pale Blonde Balayage
Here’s a subtle ombre that’s almost blonde on blonde. Platinum highlights start near the roots and run down melting in the ash blonde flow. The layers create lift, bounce, and volume for extra body of thin locks.
