Strawberry blonde hair exists in this magical place between red hair and blonde hair. It’s a lovely, playful hair color that exudes warmth and softness. It’s stunning alone, but even more beautiful when paired with warmer red or golden shades or fashion colors like vivid peach or pastel pink hair. In this article, we’ve selected 63 examples of what strawberry blonde hair can look like to get you inspired to try the look yourself. Which one will you go for?
1. Wavy Strawberry Blonde Balayage
Our first strawberry blonde hair inspo is an easy one, a warm balayage over dark brown hair that brightens up the face and gives the hair dimension. This example of strawberry blonde doesn’t require too much bleaching or dyeing, but it still has a big impact.
2. Golden Strawberry Blonde Hair
This cascade of golden strawberry blonde waves is truly irresistible! This look combines ombre and balayage techniques to create a magnificent, shiny look that appears very complex. The roots and mids are naturally a warm auburn brown, which pairs well with this warm, golden take on strawberry blonde hair.
3. Copper and Strawberry Blonde Balayage
If you are naturally a redhead or a brunette bordering on redhead, we think this is the best way to rock strawberry blonde hair. The hair was mostly left its natural color but was then touched with streaks of strawberry blonde and platinum applied in a balayage style, which make it lighter and airier.
4. Peach and Strawberry Blonde Balayage
We love the touch of fashion-forward peach in this strawberry blonde hair color since it adds a pop of brightness while still fitting seamlessly with the warm base. This look is actually a balayage since you can see the brunette lowlights and roots peeking through, with shades of strawberry blonde and pastel peach hand-painted over.
5. Face-Framing Strawberry Blonde
We love this combination of copper and strawberry blonde. The copper hair roots and mids shine with health, while face-framing pops of light strawberry blonde give the feeling that the entire head is actually blonde.
6. Cinnamon and Strawberry Blonde
This brunette hair is spiced up with touches of strawberry blonde and is a great look if you’re not ready to go for full blonde. The dark brown hair is balayaged with ginger and strawberry blonde hair dye, which makes it look shiny, warm and interesting.
7. Strawberry Blonde Cascade
Not everyone was blessed with such thick, healthy hair, but we gotta admit that this technique for streaking hair with strawberry blonde hair dye only makes it appear shinier and more voluminous by adding dimension. Take notice of the roots, which were left darker for the sake of hair health and easy maintenance.
8. Extra Strawberry Blonde Lob
This is a really unique take on strawberry blonde hair, served with an extra side of even more strawberry. It’s a deeper and more saturated take on the color that is borderline ginger, with a few very thin dark streaks that add complexity. It’s a lovely tone that works really well with the natural roots on this long bob.
9. Chocolate and Strawberry Blonde
We can’t think of a more delicious combination than strawberries and chocolate, so of course, it also works for hair! The chocolate layers are on the bottom, peeking through waves and waves of rich strawberry blonde.
10. Strawberry Blonde Streaks
Just a few cleverly placed streaks of strawberry blonde are all it takes to seriously jazz up a brown-heavy copper look. In this look, the ends are the lightest part of the hair, which has a very pleasing effect that puts out blonde vibes while the hair framing the face is still fairly dark.
11. Layered Peach and Strawberry Blonde Hair
Layered hairstyles naturally have a lot of bounce and texture, but balayaging over them seriously amps things up. For summer, we love this combination of peach and strawberry blonde tones balayaged over brown hair.
12. Strawberry Blonde Micro-Streaks
There is nothing more impressive than freshly applied micro-streaks! The teeny-tiny strawberry blonde streaks add so much texture to the auburn hair, not only making it look lighter and more fun, but also making the hair look about ten times more voluminous.
13. Grapefruit and Strawberry Blonde
Like the tastiest summer cocktail, this hairstyle serves us with a refreshing blend of pink and strawberry blonde shades. While blonde certainly dominates, the wash of pink acts as a cooling tint that makes the hair extra special.
14. Strawberry Copper Haze
This hazy blend of strawberry blonde and copper over chocolate roots is steamy without being too fiery. It’s a great example of a colormelt combined with a balayage, where the mids are primarily the darker copper, while the strawberry blonde totally takes over the ends.
15. Ashy Strawberry Blonde
This hairstyle looks oh-so-dreamy thanks to a very neutral take on strawberry blonde, applied in a heavy-handed balayage over ash brown locks. Since the hair is so light, the strawberry tone has pastel-like qualities, which seem ethereal next to the ash.
16. Ginger and Strawberry Blonde Hair
This is another spicy take on strawberry blonde, this time with hints of ginger hair dye, as well as some deeper copper tones. The right combination of different, gleaming shade gives the hair a very multidimensional quality that registers as red at first glance.
17. Deep Strawberry Blonde
Simple yet stunning, this look definitely falls under “redhead” but with a strawberry blonde tinge. It’s a simple, all-over color that one could achieve at home, but that level of shine can only come when you take good care of your tresses.
18. Strawberry Blonde Sombre
Add some cheer to your life with a strawberry blonde sombre! It’s a great way of going lighter while also enjoying easy maintenance and while still retaining some of your natural depth and darkness.
19. Wavy Strawberry Blonde Balayage
Who needs waves when you’ve got such perfect streaks? Well, waves have never hurt anyone, and in this look, they combine with those extra-thin touches of strawberry blonde streaks over auburn hair to make a beachy, textured look perfect for spring or summer.
20. Strawberry Blonde and Amethyst Smoke
This is one of those looks that are so unique yet soft that will make people gasp. This time around, strawberry blonde is the base color, and smoky streaks of rose quartz and amethyst purple add the loveliest color contrast for a mesmerizing look.
21. Strawberry Blonde Shag
Shaggy haircuts go very well with strawberry blonde hair, giving a flirty, slightly rocker look that is light and great for summer! Get inspired by this take, with razored ends and metallic shades of quartz and peach.
22. Beach Babe Strawberry Blonde
If your hair is naturally blonde already, this look is super easy to achieve! A hint of balayage with bleach will help give you some natural highlights, and then a peachy toner will give that strawberry blonde effect without taking away from those beach babe vibes. Tousled wavy styling is not optional!
23. Orange and Strawberry Blonde Hair
This is an extremely warm, orange-based twist on strawberry blonde that we absolutely adore for those with warmer undertones. The hair has a wonderful sheen, but a few dark brown streaks add contrast and richness.
24. Strawberry Blonde Face-Framing Ombre
There is nothing wrong with a traditional ombre, but we do love how adding a couple of balayage-inspired face-framing strands gives a more intense transformation while also softening the contrast between the top and bottom. In this look, the strawberry blonde color is on the lighter and warmer side of things, giving a lot of spice to the medium brown roots and mids.
25. Pastel Strawberry Blonde with Curtain Bangs
This lovely pastel strawberry blonde is a particularly lovely shade choice if you have cool, peaches & cream skin. In this look, the roots were kept deeper and a little longer, but the strawberry blonde blends into them well with a few streaks. The curtain bangs were given the same subtle treatment, making for a very flattering face frame.
26. Flaming Strawberry Blonde Balayage
There is something radiant and warm about this strawberry blonde balayage, just like the movement of a flame. That dynamic effect comes from hand-applied streaks of gold over a very deep and warm copper color.
27. Blunt Strawberry Blonde Sombre
If you want something a little unusual but still super pretty, we think a strawberry blonde sombre could be up your alley! The blend at the mids here is very soft, and the hair is super glossy, which keeps the transition from feeling too dramatic, while the blunt cut gives a bit of interest and edge.
28. Dreamy Strawberry Blonde Hair Colormelt
You can get lost in this dreamy colormelt. This coloring job appears very flowy and organic, which, in reality, takes some serious expert skill. The blend of nearly platinum with both peachy and strawberry blonde tones is irresistibly metallic, with deeper roots for health and depth.
29. Feathery Strawberry Blonde Face Frame
Just a tiny bit of hair dye can have a massive impact, as this feathery hairstyle proves! The bulk of the hair is a deeper coppery-brown shade, but just a couple of strands of strawberry blonde frame the face and transform the entire look. It feels extra fitting thanks to the tousled, wavy styling.
30. Sleek Strawberry Blonde Hair
There is no better way to tell just how skilled a colorist is than by looking at their creation after the hair has been straightened. This sleek strawberry blonde look features some delicate micro-streaks over an ashy brown base, with touched of platinum for lightness.
31. Fiery Strawberry Blonde
Heavy on the orange, this gleaming strawberry blonde has a real fiery side! Starting with natural, dark roots, the hair fades into a real ginger shade and then becomes lighter and blonder at the ends in a very gradual shift.
32. Graduated Strawberry Blonde Bob
This is one of the shortest hairstyles we’ve showcased so far, and it’s just so gosh darn pretty! The soft and wavy graduated bob is a stunning canvas for a soft and ethereal strawberry blonde balayage that brightens the face.
33. Smoked-Root Strawberry Blonde
The contrast between the pastel strawberry blonde tresses and the dark, smoky root is quite intense, on the one hand making the hair seem even lighter and more metallic and, on the other hand, giving some modern grunge vibes.
34. Pumpkin Spice Strawberry Blonde
We’re getting heavy autumnal vibes from this deep strawberry look, which is actually a very soft and subtly blended balayage. The base is a deeper auburn that becomes lighter and warmer at the front and ends, but not in the typical streaks but through a barely perceptible colormelt.
35. Strawberry Blonde Glam Waves
Sun-dappled and shiny, these strawberry blonde waves are to die for! The hair was dyed quite uniformly, but the roots were kept a little darker, while the ultra-glamorous effect comes from uni-directional curls that were then brushed out and teased to voluminous perfection.
36. Metallic Strawberry Blonde Hair
Consider a shimmering take on strawberry blonde! This metallic creation relies on a healthy layer of hair gloss, but also on the contrast between ultra-light strawberry blonde waves and deeper copper roots and lowlights. The look retains all of that gleam even when styled into piecey waves.
37. Strawberry Blonde Analog Wave
This is the kind of hair color only a true artist can create. This look combines both orange-leaning tones and pink-leaning tones of strawberry blonde, along with touches of golden platinum and copper, in hand-painted streaks that give a dynamic, flowy effect enhanced by the unidirectional waves.
38. Ash and Strawberry Cascade
Another simple balayage that we cannot resist, in large part, because that dramatic length gives us serious hair envy! These extra-long tresses are ashy brown at the roots and mids, with a simple balayage of strawberry blonde hair dye starting at the mids until it totally takes over the ends.
39. Espresso and Strawberry Blonde Lob
A long bob is always a lovely haircut, especially with a middle part and some nice waves. We like the simple yet artful way the deep espresso locks were brightened with fine streaks of pale, warm strawberry blonde, for a natural, sun-kissed look.
40. Strawberry Blonde Redhead
Touches of strawberry blonde and gold give this redhead some serious dimension and sheen. The base of the hair is still the dominant color, with tones of auburn and copper that keep it in firm redhead territory.
41. Strawberry Blonde Moonstone
This hair is smooth and reflective, just like a gleaming peach moonstone. This level of dramatic shine can only come from seriously light hair covered in a strawberry blonde hair dye or tint, as well as a finishing gloss. Brushed out curls are the secret to the smooth, flowy waves.
42. Extra Warm Strawberry Blonde
Styled into soft waves, this is a very glamorous look. This golden strawberry blonde hair is in motion, with a seamless color progression that goes through more ginger and more gold iterations, with the lightest level at the ends. We love the coloring job, but admittedly, we think the hair is too warm for the model’s cool undertone, and it would flatter those with warm skin better.
43. Opalescent Strawberry Blonde
If what you really want is for your hair to look like a peachy precious gem, bring this photo to your colorist. The gradual shift from cool-toned roots to strawberry blonde mids and ends really reminds us of the way color shifts in a peach opal as it reflects the light.
44. Copper and Strawberry Colormelt
We’re getting some vintage vibes from this smooth hairstyle, partially thanks to the gorgeous bangs. It’s a lovely combination of copper and strawberry tones in a colormelt that starts out dark and gradually gets lighter towards the ends.
45. Blunt and Wavy Strawberry Copper Balayage
If you’re searching for both haircut and color inspiration, this look has got you covered! We love a blunt cut, especially when the hair is styled into waves, and there is something about the way a strawberry blonde balayage adds even more softness to such a look.
46. Mahogany and Strawberry Colormelt
What really stands out to us in this look is the contrast between the cool mahogany roots and the warm copper mids, which, of course, become a slightly more neutral strawberry blonde at the ends. This is a very cheerful contrast, thanks to the wavy styling.
47. Strawberry Wine Bob
This adorable bob is sweet and refreshing, like strawberry wine. It’s a complex color with lighter, cooler streaks and just a hint darker, warmer streaks, which come together to give the hair a flowy, liquid feel.
48. Strawberry Chocolate Milkshake Hair
If you didn’t have a sweet tooth before, this hair color would probably give you one. The combination of chocolate roots and streaks of both warm and cool strawberry blonde is creamy and blended, just like the perfect milkshake in summer.
49. Strawberry Blonde Money Piece
Do you love the brightness the extra peachy money piece adds to the look? So do we, so here’s how to achieve it: aim for a heavily streaked strawberry blonde balayage over light brown hair and then add streaks of a more vivid peach right near the front of the face.
50. Light and Warm Strawberry Blonde
A little blonder than strawberry, this hair color still stands out thanks to its incredible warmth. A deeper root adds depth, while small, piecey waves are the magical secret to intense volume and texture that doesn’t look frizzy.
51. Strawberry Sunflower Blonde
This hair color brings to mind words like romance, summer, sunlight, and flowers. It’s an innovative take on strawberry blonde with coppery roots that turn into a more pinky tone at the mids and then make the drastic switch to very warm, golden blonde tones at the ends.
52. Neutral Strawberry Blonde Balayage
This cooled-down redhead has been transformed into a very neutral strawberry blonde, in a soft, sun-kissed balayage. The brown-copper hair has just enough warmth to gleam, while the blonde and platinum touches give a lot of movement to the look.
53. Gleaming Strawberry Blonde with Braid
When you decide to go for a look where the roots are kept dark while the bottom half of the hair is dyed a hyper-light, metallic shade, why not show it off? We love this messy half-braid for purposely bringing out the contrasting colors.
54. Metallic Autumn Strawberry Blonde
We love these warmer, more gold-orange takes on strawberry blonde for autumn, because they allow the hair to reflect what’s going on in the natural world. Of course, it helps to add a glossy finish for a slightly more metallic effect.
55. Chocolate Orange Strawberry Blonde
This warmer twist on strawberry blonde brings to mind the mouth-watering combination of chocolate and orange, which we will gladly consume in any iteration. The deep roots and flowy blonde streaks really do combine like a swirl of melted chocolate or ice cream.
56. Tousled Strawberry Blonde Waves
In the mood for something a little edgier? Solid dyed pastel strawberry blonde isn’t usually that, but by keeping the roots smoky, the look gains a grunge effect. Style the hair into tousled waves to increase the rebel girl vibes.
57. Smooth Strawberry Blonde Colormelt
Smooth, subtle, and metallic – there is something very sophisticated about this strawberry blonde hair colormelt. At first glance, it’s not clear if the hair is blonde, red, or even brown thanks to the impeccable gradient, glossy finish, and soft wavy styling.
58. Sun-Dappled Copper Strawberry Blonde
One of the most common examples of strawberry blonde hair on this list has been streaks of the lighter color over copper tresses, and in this instance, the combination feels sun-dappled and summer-ready.
59. Golden Pastel Strawberry Blonde
This strawberry blonde hair is straddling the border between pastel and gold, and we couldn’t be more in love. It’s a very light shade that requires some extreme bleaching, which is why it’s a smart decision to keep the roots dark – it keeps the scalp healthy and allows for easier grow-out.
60. Warm Strawberry Blonde with Bangs
Warm might be an understatement in this case, because this orange-leaning strawberry blonde is straight up hot! Piecey bangs and razored ends give a bit of edge to this otherwise sweet look, with multiple shades of warm strawberry that create lots of texture.
61. Gradient Strawberry Blonde Hair
This is another combo of mahogany and strawberry blonde hair that is totally dreamy. Mahogany roots give that cool, solid center to the hair gradient, which becomes a little peachier at the mids until it concludes as a very light and pastel-leaning strawberry blonde tone.
62. Strawberry Blonde Cloud Balayage
For soft, cloudy effects, the secret is choosing a balayage with extra-thick streaks of a light, metallic strawberry blonde hair dye. It makes the hair look impossibly soft and smooth, even with the contrasting chocolate-colored roots.
63. Strawberry Blonde Ends
We’re ending on a dynamic yet totally wearable look! The strawberry blonde in this look totally takes over the ends, acting like a brightening and dimension-giving highlight to copper tresses. It’s warm and fun, a perfect look for any season!
