The sun is finally shining, and it’s finally giving us a feeling of summer in the air, which means it's full steam ahead when it comes to summer beauty routines.

Summer is the perfect time to give your hair a refresh, and for most people that means opting for a lighter, brighter shade to help kickstart that natural, sun-kissed look you get from spending hours in the sun.

One celeb who’s got the summer highlights memo is Frankie Bridge, who’s been showing off her brand new buttery blonde colour after swapping her usual brunette colour for a new summery shade.

Frankie first showed off her new summer-ready highlights on Friday in an Instagram post promoting the CoppaFeel Country Trek, where she will a team captain for the charity fundraiser.

In the snap, Frankies shoulder-skimming bob has been given some all over highlights, brightening up her usual darker brunette shade to a soft bronde colour thanks to the lighter blonde sections mixing with the base tone of brown.

Although she hasn’t fully committed to the money-piece trend, the front sections of Frankie’s hair have been given an extra lighten to help boost her complexion and stick with the natural look, as those sections typically tend to lighten in the sun more than others.

The rest of Frankie’s hair has been given subtle highlights that lift the overall colour of her hair to its new buttery blonde colour, without committing to a solid lightening of her hair.

The overall effect is the perfect natural, sunkissed look that makes it seem like Frankie has already been basking in the sunshine long before the British weather caught up.

Highlights are usually a more subtle way of lightening your hair without the damage or commitment of bleaching your full head of hair, and they’re much easier to maintain than a completely lightened ‘do.

Highlights are also a great way to sort out overgrown roots without having to apply bleach to your scalp and roots, which can be intense and cause your hair to weaken at the roots.

Thankfully, Frankie’s subtle hair update is one that just about anyone can commit to, so if you’re looking for ways to refresh your hair for summer, might we suggest some Frankie-approved buttery highlights.
