Blake Lively's New Hair Color Is "Bronde," And It Totally Suits Her Beach Waves

Blake Lively's long, luscious, and beachy blonde locks have been her signature since Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Gossip Girl. Her golden hair has truly been the definition of #WokeUpLikeThis. But Blake Lively's beachy waves are even better as a "bronde" (brown and blonde), which is her latest shade. The new mom posted a photo of her beachy, "just surfed" bronde hair while wearing a bikini top. The actress is clearly having fun with her new shade, as noted by her caption, filled with totally adorable hashtags like "BlondeVsBronde" and "BrondeJamesBronde." Gotta love her pun! She noted that she had rice in her hair, as well.

So many celeb 'dos are incredibly pricy and time-consuming. The amazing thing about Blake Lively's hair, which she has confessed is like a protective shield, is that it doesn't look like she spent six hours and a thousands bucks with a glam squad to make it look amazing. Instead, it actually looks like real hair you or I would have — and in a way that is still totally #HairGoals. Many celebrities spend a lot of time and money to have hair that seems "effortless," but Lively's look doesn't seem so primped and styled.

I am thinking that Blake Lively needs to make a deeper commitment to bronde and keep this blonde x brunette hybrid for a while. It works for all seasons and her skin tone. Plus, the darker color makes her waves appear more defined. These truly are amber-ish waves! And with the rice in her hair, doesn't that make it amber waves of grain?

Her waves are so iconic and versatile. Here, they were very thick and piece-y, with more curl to 'em.

She also has styled her waves blown out and loose.

Oh and here they were just princess-y and perfect.
