German Version

The light blonde is literally light-flooded. While her rosy, diaphanous complexion has a lot in common with the sheer fragility of flower petals, her light blue, grey or green eyes give her general appearance a crystal clear luminosity. Other than the golden blonde color type, the light blonde owns a natural light that is rather cool and soft, than warm and bright. Therefore: The best color inspiration for this type can be easily found in the hues of vast northern landscapes. The breath-taking color shades of the lakes, the sea, the infinite woods and the lively Fjorden flowers are just a some of the highlights of this fabulous color world!
