Let’s get one thing out of the way: Blonde hair will never go out of style. Yet, when it comes to this spring’s hair color trends, no one can stop thinking about golden blonde locks—and there's one shade in particular that's dominating experts's minds.

Dubbed "Serena van der Woodsen blonde," theGossip Girl character's low-maintenance yet bright blonde is a refreshingly simple color compared to past blonde trends (like money pieces or "Scandi hairlines"). The golden blonde shade boasts warmer undertones, which makes for a much easier salon appointment. Plus, what's more fun than going blonde for the summer?

The Trend

Salon owner Daniel Moon coined Serena van der Woodsen blonde as the color to watch earlier this spring.

"I can’t stop thinking about Serena van der Woodsen. Not sure if it’s her golden locks or how Dan Humphrey continuously keeps letting the perfect blonde out of his sight," said Moon, mid-rewatch of the OG Gossip Girl series. Lauren Paglionico, a master colorist and the founder of lrn beauty, also noted the prevalence of warmer blondes this spring.

She adds that blonde hair trends in years past have been harsher on the hair, but you can expect this spring’s softer blonde to be easier on your locks. “Golden blonde is more low maintenance and universally flattering. The warmth can compliment a wide range of skin tones," she adds. "It also adds a sun-kissed glow, which enhances your features."

How to Get the Look

Going blonde for the summer only feels right, and if you’re on the hunt for your next color change, you might want to try the faux natural shade for yourself. It’s a great option for those who don’t want to spend too much time on upkeep but still want something bright and summery.

The key to achieving the color? Staying away from cool tones, Paglionico notes. “Let your colorist know you want to warm it up,” she says.
