We can safely say 2016 has been the year of the blonde! With everyone, from Kim Kardashian to Michelle Keegan lightening their locks, there’s never been a better time to reach for the bleach.
From party up-dos to boho waves, there’s no style that doesn’t suit a blonde bombshell. And if you’re looking to revamp your sun-kissed tresses we’ve found the best celebrity styles for you.
Going fair can be quite a scary prospect, but it’s actually a very versatile shade.
Make sure you think about your skin type before picking your colour. Those with porcelain complexions can really make a statement with platinum locks while darker skin tones will generally suit a honey-based hue.
But there are no rules when it comes to dying your hair – so be brave!
Of course, there are those of you out there who are lucky enough to be naturally blonde.
Thinking of changing it up? Just take a look at the ah-mazing styles we’ve found before making up your mind (we promise they’ll tempt you to stay a golden goddess).
Some of our favourite celebrities have worked blonde hair.
Those who’ve pulled off super-pale tresses include Michelle Williams, Girls‘ Zosia Mamet, Rita Ora, Emeli Sande and Gwen Stefani.
Meanwhile, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Ellie Goulding, Cameron Diaz and Hilary Duff have gone for mid-blonde.
If you want to test out being fair-haired without taking too much of a risk, trying a darker shade is a great option. Make like Amanda Seyfried, Scarlett Johansson and Taylor Swift.
These stars have all teased their manes into various different styles.
We’ve got glamorous old Hollywood-esque curls, casual beach babe waves, poker-straight lengths, volumising topknots, chic blow-dries and cute ponytails, among others.
Don’t worry – we’ve also got plenty of examples for you ladies with short hair. In fact, this colour can really add interest to a simple crop.
Check out The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco’s punky quiff, Anne Hathaway’s side fringe and Reese Witherspoon’s bob.

It looks like Kendall’s been raiding sister Kylie’s wig stash, as the 19-year-old took to Instagram last night to debut her new Barbie-esque look. Dubbing herself ‘Ken doll’, the model proved she can pull off lightened locks like a pro – gorgeous, no?! Farewell, sleeping beauty.

It's not just the ladies who can make us envious of their blonde locks. Dougie Poynter's chin-length 'do is definitely one to admire.

She soon decided to revert back to her fair colour, telling her Instagram followers: 'Ok maybe blondes do have more fun. Thank you @vspaeth for bringing me back 🙂 @andylecomptesalon.' We think Kaley can pull off any colour, but we do love her platinum look.
As well as crushing on Khloe’s perfect white blonde waves, we’re also admiring sister Kendall’s papping skills: ‘I told Kendall she should be a photographer and she decided to make me her first project. Get it Kenny!!! Glam by @jenatkinhair and @1maryphillips’, Khloe wrote next to this snap. Nice work.

However, the actress clearly prefers the lighter side as she was soon back to this summery hue.

Michelle Williams loves a short blonde ‘do but we especially liked the platinum bob she rocked at this year’s Met Ball. Gorgeous.
