Indola has launched a new Street Style Collection with not one but three brand new must-have looks for a new season – and the second one is the Effortless Blonde step by step …

Inspired by the late 90s TV series Beverly Hills 90210, this effortless blonde step by step look is one that works for every taste. Highlights in the long blonde hair are redefined with a modern silhouette and a classic layered shape. The colour brings soft touches of sand and neutral hues for a blonde that is effortlessly glowing. The cut has a dishevelled airy feel that complements the softness of the chosen colour palette whilst the texture gives really uncomplicated vibes with weightless ends and a soft wave.

Here’s the how to
