There are only a couple of hair colors that can be described as universally flattering. To us, those are platinum blonde (surprising, we know) and honey-colored. For some reason, these two shades seem to fit every single person who wears them. Other colors, however, look better or worse depending on each person's unique skin tone.В
When we say honey-colored hair, we mean honey blonde or honey brown-eitherВ variation that incorporates the creamy, golden hue of honey. Maybe it's because it looks bright and youthful or maybe it's because it brings natural-looking warmth to the hair. Either way, we're convinced that honey-colored hair is the most photogenic.
Yep, it's official. We called it. Keep scrolling to see all the proof you need.В
