There's something alluring about platinum locks. Admit it, if you haven't gone blonde before, you've at least looked in the mirror and imagined what it'd be like to trade your normal tresses for lighter, brighter ones. Recent Pinterest trends are proof. Searches for icy blonde hair have gone up 216%, and we can't help but wonder if it has to do with the celebs who've gone blonde recently.
