There is blonde – and then there’s platinum. Platinum is the “ultimate” blonde hair color as it’s the lightest and brightest you can achieve without going completely white. That said, it’s a popular choice for those who want something incredibly glistening and eye-catching.

Platinum blonde hair doesn’t have to be strictly platinum, though. There are so many gorgeous ways to wear it, whether intermingling other fun colors like lavender on the tips or going with a jaw-dropping balayage. Platinum also looks good in so many styles, from wavy wonders to slick-straight, chin-length bobs.

Being as versatile as it is, we decided it was time to put together this incredibly comprehensive guide of the top 79 most gorgeous ways to sport platinum blonde hair this year. Which one of these stunning looks is going to be yours?

Ok, I’ll be honest – platinum blonde hair color is high-maintenance. That said, many women prefer to go with a more low-maintenance haircut like a pixie. This will allow you to focus on your hair color while enjoying an edgy yet elegant appearance.

#4. Champagne Platinum Balayage
