Looking for an autumn hair colour update? You’ve come to the right place. These 21 celebrities will have you booking in for honey blonde highlights immediately. 

Whether you’re naturally dark, red or fair, honey blonde hair is a shade that works on pretty much everyone. 

Why? Unlike platinum blonde, which strips almost all of the pigment out of the hair in order to reach its icy hue, honey blonde leaves behind a sun-kissed warmth, which means it’s both easier to achieve and pull off.
