Going ‘Marilyn Blonde’ for Autumn

Marilyn by George Barris, 1962

‘Marilyn Blonde’ is the shade of choice for blondes this season, Glamour reports.

“‘As a result of our post-Covid world, we’re seeing a surge in demand of salon customers requesting easier to manage colour – soft, tonal blonde such as champagne blondes, mushroom blondes and pastel rose golds,’ says Tracy Hayes, Fudge Professional Global Brand Ambassador.

Enter, Marilyn Blonde. Sitting somewhere between ‘Old Hollywood Blonde’ and ‘Atomic Blonde’, Marilyn Blonde is platinum, bright but a little bit ashy – just like Marilyn Monroe’s iconic colour – and it’s making one hell of a comeback.

It’s bold, sure, but it’s one of the most iconic hair colours of all time – a true bleach that flatters just about every style. Whether you want to go all out Hollywood glam with a bouncy blow-out or embrace something a little edgier by juxtaposing the colour with a 70s shag, there’s virtually no style it doesn’t suit.”
