From platinum to silver to "bronde," blonde doesn't really describe a color; it's a category, filled with an infinite number of shades for us to try. While we diplomatically love all shades of blonde hair, we're currently crushing on one specific, sweet shade: honey blonde. A hue that mixes golden yellow with amber-brown tones, honey blonde looks strikingly similar to that gooey stuff we all know and love.

From Gigi Hadid's California-girl waves on the hair color to J.Lo's deep golden locks, keep scrolling to see 15 celebs with honey blonde hair. We searched far and wide to find our favorite examples, which is why you should be warned: There's a lot of hair inspo coming your way. After reading, you just might add your colorist to speed dial.

Keep scrolling to check out the honey blonde hair inspo we're bringing to our colorist ASAP.

Let's kick-off our favorite celebrity, honey blonde hair colors with the unofficial queen of honey (at least in our book): Gigi Hadid. Her hair is the perfect blend of toasted yellow highlights and golden brown lowlights that meld together to create a soft honey shade.

Olivia Palermo is another celebrity who is known for sporting varying shades of honey blonde hair. We like how her natural cool-toned chestnut shade is still seen at the roots and around her face, serving as a nice contrast to her light honey locks.

If you're hesitant to go fully blonde, do as J.Lo does (as always) and opt for honey blonde highlights in a base of golden-brown hair. This lightly tousled lob looks relaxed yet elevated, and has a playfulness that we just love.

Blake Lively is another classic honey blonde-haired star. The subtle balayage highlights placed throughout her long locks perfectly embody a beachy, California-girl vibe. When Lively is pregnant, she is known to not dye her hair and showcasing her natural dark-blonde roots, which naturally, looks incredibly chic.

Curly-haired people, take note. Rita Ora's spirals are out of this world. Seriously, could those textured ringlets be any more beautiful? We don't think so, especially when they're dyed this light honey blonde. It's basically the hair equivalent of golden hour.

Kate Bosworth

Kate Bosworth's honey blonde hair looks gorgeous when it's pinned back into one of her classic low chignons, long and wavy, or in a high, tight bun. While we enjoy all of her different styles, we'd like to think her striking middle part is her most beloved hair feature. Pair it with a honey shade that reminds us of autumn, and it's even better than the first day of fall.

We're used to seeing Ciara with dark brown or raven-black hair, which we love, but we're always excited to see her rocking honey blonde hair. How could we get over such rich, golden locks? Paired with this wavy long bob, it's simply perfection.

If you're currently sporting dark hair but you still want in on the "I just returned from a month-long vacation on the Italian coast" highlights, take pointers from Tia Mowry. For this look, she added a few subtle golden highlights on the ends of her curls.

Lauren Conrad's honey blonde hair color is the closest thing we've ever seen to a real-life version of Rapunzel's golden hair, it seems to sparkle in every photo. Aside from the color, the key to mastering this look is the high-shine finish. We swear by Sachajuan Shine Serum ($33) for just that.

Like Lauren Conrad once did, Hailey Bieber veers on the brighter side of honey blonde. This color paired with a wavy bob is giving us bond-girl energy (no James needed, but we'll take the martini).

Beyoncé has sported honey blonde hair for years, and, just like everything else she does, we're obsessed. This look has seamless dimension; chestnut brown, golden blonde, even a little auburn if you look closely, all meld together for a perfect honey blonde result. To get Beyoncé-worthy volume and bounce, spritz a lightweight spray throughout your strands. We like using Verb Volume Spray ($16).

Jessica Alba's hair verges on golden brown (a perfect example of bronde, which counts in our book). Much like Tia Mowry's hair, her honey blonde highlights glint in the light and catch our eye, acting as a delightfully subtle detail.

Shay Mitchell

Shay Mitchell proves that honey blonde hair fits any occasion by giving it the red-carpet treatment. Paired with a dark smoky eye and a nude lip, this typically laid-back shade feels dramatic and glamorous.

Jasmine Sanders wears her honey blonde hair in that distinct model-off-duty way that never seems to be possible when you give it lots of effort. Consider this the '90s way to do summer blonde— with a modern twist that looks stylish all year long.

Last, but certainly not least, we have Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Here, she's photographed for her beauty website wearing a hairstyle by Christian Wood and a beauty look by Katie Jane Hughes. Her windswept texture and lilac eye are equally stunning, though we think her hair color deserves some serious recognition. It's warm and golden, like actual honey, which is the ultimate goal when wearing this shade, right?
