One hair trend that simply took over our social timelines in 2017 was the flawless execution of celebs going blonde. Sometimes considered a risque hair color, blonde can be a bit intimidating to attempt against our melanated skin.
But things have changed! Gone are the days where there were only a few hair colors and highlights for us. Nowadays, regardless of complexion and lifestyle, anyone can choose from a myriad of blonde hues and tones. The options are endless and celebrities rocked this color more than ever in 2017. See how Solange, Cardi B, Zoe Kravitz, and more, rocked blonde this year!
