Blonde Hair on Black Women
Blonde is one of the least common naturally occurring hair colors in the world, but it’s also one of the most popular: which explains why so many women go to great lengths to bleach their natural hair. Others take a shortcut by getting a blonde wig, weave, or braided extensions, which is often the easiest and most practical option – especially if you don’t want to commit to the color long term. The idea of going blonde may seem intimidating to some, but with so many shades and styles to choose from, the possibilities are almost endless.
