Bid farewell to icy platinum, as the blonde hair scene undergoes a welcoming transformation into the realm of cozy blonde. This honey-infused hue is stepping into the spotlight, promising to be a favorite well into the upcoming year. With celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Keke Palmer, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez paving the way, countless others are also embracing the allure of cozy blonde locks, making a sun-kissed shift in 2024 hair trends.

Living the Cozy Blonde Vibe

More than just a trend, cozy blonde is a lifestyle. Its low-maintenance charm brings depth to your locks through the strategic placement of lighter shades and subtle lowlights. A haven for natural blondes, those with highlights or balayage, and even light brunettes, cozy blonde embodies a delicate balance. Michelle Cleveland, a celebrity hair extension artist, defines it as the perfect blend of a radiant blonde persona and the convenience of minimal upkeep. It’s not about no maintenance, but a smart fusion of style and simplicity.

For those ready to dive into the honey-hued trend, understanding what to ask for is paramount. Celebrity hairstylist Jennifer Korab suggests opting for golden or honey blonde hair shades while brightening the face frame and integrating fine lowlights. The goal is to achieve a luminous and effortlessly dimensional look. It’s a nuanced process, ensuring that while embracing a laid-back aesthetic, you maintain that essential touch of chic.

Nurturing Your Cozy Blonde

Though celebrated for its low-maintenance allure, the cozy blonde still requires a bit of care. Michelle Cleveland emphasizes that the biggest mistake is assuming low maintenance means no maintenance. Regular use of heat protectants, color-preserving shampoos, and hydrating masks are your secret weapons to keep the golden glow fresh. In terms of styling, Korab suggests enhancing your cozy blonde hair with a lived-in look like beach waves, using air-drying and a touch of sea salt spray for that ultimate laid-back charm.

Whether you decide to go blonde or not, no one can deny that these new blonde shades are gorgeous in their simplicity. They’re perfect for those who want to try blonde hair. After all, they do say that blondes have more fun!

Kate Middleton Dazzles With Her Tiara Moment in the Royal Dinner

Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, is not a new face when it comes to wowing the world with royal fashion moments. Recently, the Princess added another feather to her growing list of jaw-dropping fashion moments, when she adorned a stunning royal accessory at her latest dinner party. It was the fabled Lover’s Knot Tiara of Queen Mary, a personal favorite of the late Princess Diana.

The Tiara

The Lover’s Knot Tiara was made in 1914 by the Royal Jeweler Garrard. The design was personally suggested by Queen Mary, which was influenced by another tiara owned by Princess Augusta of Hesse, Queen Mary’s grandmother. The gorgeous tiara was embellished with plenty of diamonds and teardrop pearls already possessed by her family. Eventually, it was passed as a family heirloom to Princess Diana, who adored it and wore it on several important occasions.

The Look

Just like Princess Diana, the Princess of Wales also dazzled in this tiara, when she sported it on the occasion of the first state dinner of King Charles III’s reign. For the occasion, Kate Middleton donned an embellished regal white gown with a cape and a royal blue sash. A brooch bearing the image of the late Queen Elizabeth II was another statement piece of her ensemble. Her pearl bracelet, diamond and drop pearl earrings, and pearlescent white clutch beautifully complemented the famous heirloom tiara.

The Feast

Kate Middleton was looking amazing at her father-in-law’s dinner party. King Charles III’s first royal state dinner was attended by several members of the British royal family, along with several political delegations. The dinner menu was extensive, with the starring dish being the grilled brill with wild mushrooms and stuffed Windsor pheasant. But there’s no doubt that the star of the entire occasion was none other than Kate Middleton in the showstopper Lover’s Knot Tiara.
