This shade of blonde is called dawn, and you can easily see why. However, the trick with this color as with this haircut is to dye your roots dark. Go for a simple, choppy bob, where your hairstylist can finish off your ends using a razor. Don’t try this at home by yourself.

If you want to go for balayage, this is the way to do it. Instead of a dry and boring blonde, you can mix a platinum shade with some arctic nuances as well as beige and a very light caramel. In this way, it will look extremely natural.
24. The Meryl Streep
Here is actress Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. She was portraying a character based on Vogue’s Anna Wintour. However, since the producers didn’t want to copy the fashion guru’s exact haircut, they gave Meryl this short blonde hair do.

27. The Claire Danes
This natural beauty can do nothing wrong when it comes to style and makeup. As far as short blonde hair goes, she adopted this gorgeous short bob with natural brown roots and light feathery ends.
28. Frozen Over
This is the iconic look for 2016. A tousle of arctic, short blonde hair, eyeliner cat eye, a contoured face, matte lips, strong eyebrows, and, of course, a nose ring. We suggest you jump on the trend while it’s still hot.
29. Hazelnut and Gold
It’s difficult not to fall in love with this color combination. The hazelnut beige blonde with dark roots looks shiny and natural. Moreover, when you put it together with some sparkly golden earrings and purple matte makeup, you’ve got yourself a winner.
30. Golden Rose
If the past few years were to be assigned a color, this would be it. Golden rose was and still is the key to a gorgeous looking style. Don’t be afraid to use it as an inspiration for your hair as well, especially if you have lighter colored eyes.
31. The Marilyn Monroe
It would have been impossible even to attempt to create a list of short blonde hair ideas without including the biggest diva of all time on it who, incidentally, had short blonde hair. Do you think we could count how many tried to copy her hairstyle? It would, probably, be easier to count the stars.
32. Curly Short Blonde Hair
This is an incredibly easy way to deal with curly hair if you have it. Cut it down to a pixie with shaved sides and back and leave some curls to roam free on top of your head. All you need to do to style it is put some mousse in the palm of your hand and run your fingers through your hair.
33. The Gwyneth Paltrow
Although she loves her long tresses just as much as the next Rapunzel, actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been known to cut them off from time to time as well. Here she is at a red carpet event sporting a very chic and sleek classic bob.

The supermodel has a facial bone structure to die for. This is the main reason why she can pull off just about any haircut out there. Including this short blonde one. It’s a shoulder length bob with stunning beach waves.

Yet another supermodel on our list, Kate Moss’ hair is one for the books. This dirty sandy blonde highlights her hazel eyes perfectly. Apart from that, the asymmetrical bob has a few shorter strands that gently hug and frame her square face.
36. The Jennifer Aniston
After her Rachel years were over, Jennifer Aniston moved on to a more demure and elegant look. She embraced a sleek bob, lighter and more golden in color, with choppy ends. It suited her well, as she has piercing blue eyes and fine hair.
37. Metallic Short Blonde Hair
If you are interested in a more dramatic look, then we suggest this one of a kind haircut. It’s a very short pixie, almost tomboyish in length. However, the masculine vibe is nonexistent, thanks to the vintage finger waves. Also, the color is a metallic gold.
38. Undercut Short Blonde Hair
As far as short blonde hair goes, this is one that has to take the cake. It’s a short pixie, with platinum highlights and shaved undercut. We also love how cool and crisp it all looks, just perfect for the scolding hot summer season.
39. Shaggy and Pink
The first two things that pop out when looking at this haircut are just how perfectly shaggy it looks and the light pink bangs. The back side is faded, ending in a very blunt cut. Ask your hairstylist to do it for you, instead of trying it at home.
40. The Khloe Kardashian
If you are at loss for inspiration, you can always take a leaf from the Kardashian inspiration book. The girls always have something worthy to show, including when it comes to their hairstyles. Take Khloe and her choppy shoulder length bob, for example.
41. Blonde, Purple, Pink, and Pastel
It’s always a great idea to combine blonde with something, as it’s such an easy to mix color. For example, you can use a bit of washed-out purple and a bit of pink and get this one of a kind pastel color that goes great with your natural undercut.
42. The Zebra
Don’t let the simplicity of its name fool you. Short blonde hair can be so much more than that. And this lovely lady is here to prove just that. She’s sporting an ultra-short pixie cut. Moreover, she is using her natural hair color and partings to create a zebra pattern to her hair.
43. The Asymmetrical Pixie
Another way to go regarding short blonde hair is the mix between the pixie and the bob. In other words, you can get the best of both worlds by cutting your hair down to a pixie in the back and leaving some great, long bangs in the front.
44. The Alice Lidell
You don’t know who Alice Lidell was? How about just Alice? Still no? How about Alice in Wonderland? The little girl who lived in England so many years ago and who inspired one of the most famous books of all time had a haircut just like this.
45. The Emeli Sande
The Clown songstress has a signature look and this is it. Evidently, it involves short blonde hair and it reminds us a bit of Pink in her good, old days. The sandy colored updo is, in fact, a fauxhawk, with shaved sides and curls at the top.
46. Cartoon Blonde
One way to stand out from the crowd this summer is to dye your hair a lovely cartoon blonde. Think Lady Gaga and let her inspire you. Pair it with a set of painted on eyebrows and some oversized mirror sunglasses and you will truly be the belle of the neighborhood.
47. The Buzz Cut
Short blonde hair can also mean the good old buzz cut. On a girl. Yes, we know, it’s a bit rare to see it on the fairer sex, but look just how pretty she is. The Disney themed Tshirt is to die for just as well, so why not go for both at the same time?
48. The Scarlet Johansson
Nowadays, ScarJo sports short blonde hair for real, meaning she has a short of Emeli Sande thing going on. However, we did not choose that one. Instead, we went for this amazing ginger blonde vintage updo that she wore for a red carpet event. Classy!
49. The Melon Cat
You might recognize this haircut as the melon cat. And you would be right. It does look exactly like that. Except that it’s totally artsy, architectural, choppy, layered, asymmetrical, and just about two tons of fantastic style wise.
50. Grunge Short Blonde Hair
Grunge is all about the messy, dirty blonde, combined with all sorts of washed out kooky colors, such as this neon green, that used to be neon back in the day but now it’s just oh! so Courtney Love grungy.
51. 60s Short Blonde Hair
And speaking of Courtney Love, here is a looking straight from the 90s. The choppy bob with a little bit of pink here and there and that almost has no product in it, the short bangs pulled to the left and right of the forehead, the nose ring and, of course, the black Nirvana T-shirt.
52. The Rachel McAdams
There is a reasons why Rachel McAdams was elected to play queen of the cool girl Regina George in Mean Girls. She is pretty beyond a doubt. Long hair, short hair, curly hair, straight hair, blonde, brunette, pink, pastel, she can pull it all off.
53. The Dark Mia Farrow
No, not the dark actress, but the darker shade of Mia Farrow’s short blonde hair. This is a deep shade of honey mixed with just a touch of chestnut and amber to give it that glossy finish we all know and love. Ask your stylist how you can get this lavish color.
54. The Perfect Pixie
We’ve had pixies on top of pixies. But this has got to be the perfect one. It just has that wonderful 60s vibe, along with a very strong feminine vibe, which is just what a pixie cut needs to do to work its magic.
55. The Courtney Love
We circle to her once more, only this time to find her in the flesh. It’s the queen of grunge herself, Courtney Love with her famous short blonde hair. In fact, her hairdo is so famous that you can tell how it looks like even in this black and white touched up photo.
56. Wavy Short Blonde Hair
If you want to copy this look, you will have to bring out your old curling iron. Use some mousse to give the hair a bit of texture. Apart from that, you can also braid your hair overnight. In the morning, untie the loose braids and you will be left with this brilliant result.
57. The Maison Kitsune
This is a New Wave leaf from the Maison Kitsune Spring Summer 2014 Lookbook. The model’s short blonde hair looks almost fried at the ends, like she spent way too much time with the curling iron in her hands. We also love the silk scarf and retro sunglasses.
58. The Long Bob
The great thing about such a simple hairdo is that it will accentuate your natural features as well as your natural beauty. If you have this lob, or long bob, part your hair sideways and scoop it behind your ears so as to always showcase your cheekbones.
59. Two Tones
Even if you’re dying to have short blonde hair, that doesn’t mean it has to be all over your head. Take this example. The sandy mixed with platinum blonde rests regally on top while underneath you can see the model’s natural hair color.
60. The Cinnamon Blonde Bob
Not all blondes are typical whiteish blondes, like the ones we are accustomed with, that’s why we saved the best for last. This hot season, try something different if you really want to stand out from the crowd. Go for short blonde hair, but in a delicious cinnamon caramel color!
