Say hello to the greatest hairstyle of your life.

I’m a brunette. I have dark-ish brown, medium length, super thick hair I haven’t dyed for five years now (holy hell). But before that, I was blonde, and I don’t mean that copper-honey-ish colour a lot of ladies go to avoid the Barbie look. I was platinum, almost white, 40 volt peroxide blonde, and I loved it with a fiery passion.

But my hair certainly didn’t love it, especially as the peroxide would burn my hairdresser’s fingers as she painstakingly put in the foils. I had a choice; keep crucifying my hair while spending $200 every six weeks to keep the roots at bay…or be true to my genetics and brunettify myself.

Of course I took the second option. My hair liked it, and so did my bank balance. Still, I missed waking up in the morning and tossing back my mane of glossy blonde hair. I dreamed of a balance; some sort of super-hair-colour with the glamour of blonde and the classy sex appeal of brunette.

Could such a thing exist? Were my lofty expectations in vain…or was there something out there that could quell the pang of nostalgia every time I looked at my old Facebook photos? The answer is YES! Welcome to the wonderful world of bronde; half brunette, half blonde, and all awesome. Just to prove how excited I am about finally fulfilling my hair-spirations in all their bronde glory, here are 13 reasons why you should do the same…

1. It makes your sex-eyes smoulder.
