Beauty Lexicon: Bronde

So Glamour introduced us to the term “Bronde” in their September issue and I have come to terms (very recently) that I am a Bronde. I say it loud(ly) and proud(ly). It’s basically a carmel-hued shade that is too dark to really be considered Blonde, but too light to fall into the classic Brunette category. Practically invented by Jennifer Aniston, other Brondes include Amanda from Ugly Betty, Gisele, and my The Hills gal, Lauren Conrad.

I love the term Bronde so much, I wish I made it up. In fact, instead of using it, I’m going to use the term I just DID make up: Blunette. Done. Fellow Blunettes, feel free to comment!

    I knew it was only a matter of time until someone pointed that out. I googled “blunette” after I wrote that post and saw the urban dictionary thing. But they used it in a different way. Blunette the way I used it doesn’t apply to anything but dark blonde hair. Just saying. Thanks for pointing that out, though.

    sorry to disappoint you but this is from


    Half blonde, half brunette.

    Any of the millions of girls naturally brunette with blonde highlights. Blunettes are girls who embrace their natural hair color, even if it is not one of the three traditional hair colors: blonde, brown, or red. Blunettes can be anywhere from extremely light brown to dark blonde colored hair.
