It is often said that blonde is more than just a color. It’s an attitude and a way of life. Apart from that, it’s a huge commitment. Once you decide to get blonde hair, there is little you can do to go back to your original color. There is a lot of bleaching involved, ladies tend to get dismayed since, sometimes, their blonde hue appears yellowish, and the shade itself has to be nurtured to continuously look like it did on day one.
Not to mention that your hair needs all the nourishment it can get. This is why we call blondes the bravest ladies out there. For them, we have created a list of 50 blonde hair shades, colors, and styles to give them a bit of inspo. Let’s get started!
1. Blonde Hair with Balayage and Curls
We’re starting off easy with a super quick and fun idea. It’s worth considering for those ladies who want a bit of Blonde Hair Color in their lives but are not ready to make a full commitment to bottle blonde. Balayage is the answer for you!
2. Blonde Hair Color Ideas with Lowlights and Highlights
Another way of making your blonde hair look as natural as possible is by including a few lowlights among your highlights as well. No natural blonde shade is a solid block of color. It has lighter and darker strands and so should yours.
3. Malibu Blonde Hair Color Ideas
Do you know what goes perfectly well with Malibu blonde hair? A fabulous pout. Therefore, we suggest you break out your curling iron for some awesome beach waves, as well as a peach or nude matte lip stain.
4. Paparazzi Highlighted Blonde Hair
Here’s another shade that we are absolutely in love with. It’s the paparazzi blonde. It goes perfectly well in all seasons. Plus, it’s gorgeous if you decide to straighten your hair. You will definitely look like a star in the spotlight.
5. The Shakira
Latina songstress Shakira is here to help us start our long list of celebrities with blonde hair. She is not only the definition of ‘voluptuous.’ Do you know what else is curvy about her? Her curls. That’s right. She has curvy curls.

8. The Ariana Grande
That’s right, even hardcore brown hair lover Ariana Grande fell prey to the lure of the blonde hair. Although we do love her more in the deep chocolate she usually wears, we cannot say she didn’t do justice to the sandy shade.
9. Platinum Blonde Hair Color Ideas
One of the most beloved shades in the blonde spectrum is the platinum one. It quietly toes the line between silvery white and gray and we have been loving it for years. The color bears an extreme elegance that works both in the office and in the club.
