Summer is approaching fast, which means that celebs and us mere mortals will be giving our hair a much-needed lighter hue.

Enter: blond hair. After spending months in the dark (literally, we hardly ever saw daylight during the winter), summer is the perfect time to dye your hair with lighter accents, whether it be full-on blond, subtle highlights or the ever-popular ombré look.

Naturally, celebrities are getting in on the action, with stars such as Nikki Reed, Nina Dobrev and Sophia Bush debuting blond tresses recently. (And remember when Kim Kardashian went blond? She looked amazing.)
