When it comes to choosing a flattering hair color, it’s an unspoken rule that blended shades will always look more natural than extremes. Dying your hair fire engine red is all well and good, but wouldn’t a creamy strawberry blonde look even better?

Still, even the most experienced hair color fiend can find herself in a rut occasionally. Strawberry blonde is truly a unique shade, on that shouldn’t be dulled down or taken for granted. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up 13 of the most beautiful red-blonde manes possible. Why settle for color that’s just mediocre?

If you’re ready for a refresh on your go-to shade or have been debating a hair color that’s not quite true red, not quite true blonde, feast your eyes on these strawberry blonde bombshells. Something in this list is bound to catch your eye.

True Strawberry Blonde

At its best, strawberry blonde is a delicious, warm combination of blonde and red. The shade, which is sometimes called Venetian blonde, is a pale but vibrant take on red. It’s flattering to a range of fair and medium skin tones and can lean either warm or cool. It’s an excellent color solution for both blondes and redheads who have been dying to try something new.

Strawberry Blonde Bob

Okay, so a bob isn’t exactly a hair color idea. Still, it’s a fresh take on a shade that’s beloved. Whereas many women feel tied to their length, we’re big advocates of the idea that change is always a good plan. If you’re already taking a step toward a new hair color, why not update your length as well?

Auburn Hair with Strawberry Blonde Highlights

Hoping to even out some of the blazing red notes in your hair? Strawberry highlights make hair with tons of depth look effortless. These golden-red strands will add high points to your strands, making your mane seem thicker and healthier. Basically, this is the hair color version of sitting in the sun for hours at a time—just without the chance of getting sunburnt.

Burgundy Hair with Strawberry Blonde Highlights

Burgundy hair has a bit of bad reputation for looking dated, but that only comes into play when it’s poorly dyed. If you’re seeing a professional for your color and are interested in the vampy side of strawberry blonde, this highlighted look is an excellent choice. The key here is to ask for finely blended color, avoiding stripes at all costs.

Strawberry Blonde with Chestnut Lowlights

If purple-tinted shades aren’t your thing, then try a strawberry blonde look that’s grounded in pure, deep brown. Just the way babylights bring high points to your mane, their darker equivalents add shadows throughout your mane for hair that looks incredibly voluminous. Why choose just one shade, when you could have many? That’s what experimenting is all about.

Dark Strawberry Blonde

If you aren’t starting out with a red base, achieving rich color can seem impossible. Don’t panic yet—we’ve got a solution for you. Unlike a traditional strawberry blonde color, which edges toward caramel or honey, dark strawberry blonde is a bright, coppery play on the shade. Looking for a shade that’s perfectly suited for summertime? Dark strawberry blonde is your move.

Warm Strawberry Blonde

Warm strawberry blonde hair on pale skin is the real-life equivalent of an Instagram filter. The shade will flatter your skin, make your features pop, and generally win over the world. The shade, which incorporates ginger and honey notes, isn’t just tasty-sounding—it’s downright delicious to try out. You’ll be glad you did.

Rose Gold

Rose gold may be one of the newest shades on this list, but that doesn’t mean it won’t stick around. The ultra-popular shade, born from the popularity of pastel pink manes, is an ashy variation of red-blonde hair. You’ve probably already seen a dozen different versions of rose gold hair on your social media feed. Just make sure to book an appointment with a professional who has experience creating the shade.

Strawberry Brown

We’re just going to come out and say it: Strawberry brown is a painfully underrepresented hair color. The shade, which often gets lost behind its blonde relatives, is a mix of light brown and red notes. It’s multifaceted and shimmery—a shade you just can’t forget once you’ve seen it. What’s more, it’s ideal for medium skin tones that often struggle to pull off light red strands.

Light Strawberry Blonde

At first glance, light strawberry blonde hair reads as a very pale golden shade. Upon closer inspection, however, you’ll note a very pale red tint that’s extremely flattering on ladies with porcelain skin. If you manage to get a little sun, light strawberry blonde will show it.

Golden Strawberry Blonde

Here’s a shade for the beach babes out there, the ones who believe the best thing a hair color can do is highlight their tans. We’re totally behind you. Golden strawberry blonde combines sunshiny notes with the coppery red we love so much, resulting in a bombshell shade that’s utterly unforgettable. This shade is the platinum blonde of the red hair color world.

Strawberry Blonde with Blonde Ombre

Being a natural redhead often means feeling stuck in a style dilemma. You want to try out new shades, but loathe the idea of messing with your unique hair color. The solution to your problem is an ombre look. When you’re tired of the secondary color or can’t shake the desire for fresh, blunt ends, your stylist can just snip those blonde ends away. No commitment, no fuss—which is just how we like our hair color.

Strawberry Blonde Balayage

Don’t worry, brunettes, we haven’t forgotten you. If you’re working with medium or dark brown roots but want to take strawberry blonde for a spin, ask your colorist about strawberry blonde balayage shoulder-length (or longer) hair. Instead of lightening your full mane and potentially causing irreparable damage, you’ll be the proud owner of strands that gradually transition into strawberry blonde ends. When you’re done with the style, just cut them off. It’s as easy as that!
