Created on March 25, 2024

It’s out with the old and in with the new. With the warmer air approaching, spring is the perfect time for blondes to shine. And what better blonde than Elle Macpherson? As the lifelong friend and creator of her signature sunkissed strands, Josh decided to switch it up for Elle this spring, with a custom hair colour-perfect for spring '24 - Buff Blonde Hair Colour.

"Buff Blonde is the perfect no-root-blonde. I wanted to create a colour that was polished and honed down. Elle's blonde now gives high intensity whilst being beautifully invisible. Buff Blonde is the perfect way to carry your colour this spring." - Josh Wood

So what is buff blonde hair colour? 

Buff blonde refers to a warm, golden-brown shade that is lighter than a chestnut but darker than a blonde. It works best on already-lightened hair. It's a creamier and more-lived in blonde that creates multi-dimensional tones within the hair colour.

Buff Blonde Vs Honey Blonde Hair Colour 

Buff blonde focuses on warmer and golden tones in the hair as opposed to regular blonde which focuses on adding cooler and more neutral tones to really highlight the light hair. Buff Blonde is slightly darker than a honey blonde, which creates a rich-looking golden and buttery hair colour perfect for Spring/Summertime. Buff Blonde is also an easier colour to transition to from pre-lightened highlights, balayage or babylights.

How to create buff blonde hair colour at home?

To replicate Elle’s buff blonde hair at home, you can use the Josh Wood Colour Champagne Gloss on already lightened hair to add sun-kissed tones to the hair for the ultimate warm, golden finish. 

For those highlights that are starting to grow, opt for the Josh Wood Colour Blonde Root Smudge, to extend your blonde and give the illusion of fresh salon colour. 

Of course, with all Blondes a good hair care routine is a must. To keep your Buff Blonde looking fresh, Josh recommends to use the Josh Wood Colour Miracle Shampoo and Conditioner specially designed to be sulphate-free and colour-protecting to protect the vibrancy of your blonde. To maintain the condition of your blonde hair continue to use a Miracle Mask at least once a week.
