    Bottle Blonde

    When someone says that her hair is bottle blonde, that she means that she colours her hair using peroxide, or does it mean that it is so blonde to the point it looks as if it were coloured?

    Because someone I know said that her hair is "bottle blonde" but it seemed so natural. And I was embarrassed to ask what she meant.

    Hi Ducklet Cat

    [bottle blond] {n.}, {slang} A person who is obviously not a natural blond but whose hair is artificially colored. I doubt that Leonora's hair color is natural; she strikes me as a bottle blond.
