It looks nice, but is mainstream and a very common look in Scandinavia. Yes, I consider it to be blonde. It's a dark blonde hair color. But on the top of the head it's not dark blonde or dirty blonde. It's a more light brown or brown hair color.

I like the idea of it, but the top is way too dark for the rest of the hair... it just looks too artificial. I'd say the reasoning when it comes to balayage or ombre is to make it look as natural as possible, so being gradient is key. Here there's more of a sharper turn to the lighter shade and the shade remains the same up until the ends - it's supposed to lighten more...
