They say blondes have more fun. Or that gentlemen prefer blondes. Do you think they’re right? We can’t say if that’s true or not, but what we do know is the fact that short blonde hair is a thing of beauty.
In other words, you should totally rock such a haircut and hairstyle! Still not sure? Then here are some really cool ideas for short blonde hair that will inspire you!
1. The Shaggy Bob
We start off our list of short blonde hair ideas with the shaggy bob. All you need to do to replicate this look is grab a handful of mousse or hair wax and run your fingers through your hair.
2. The Soccer Mom Short Blonde Hair
If you need a haircut that’s both stylish and practical, then this is what you go for. This is a medium-sized bob that was shortened by creating some wispy curls. We also love the glossy butterscotch color mixed with a cinnamon shade of blonde.
3. The Kate Winslet
The world took notice of acting giantess Kate Winslet in Titanic where she sported a stunning red mane. However, she looks like a true bombshell in this photoshoot, with the short blonde hair and overdramatic makeup.
4. The Emma Thompson
Even though she went through numerous transformations for all the movies she’s been in, Emma Thompson likes to keep her hair short and pretty in real life. The purple matte makeup is a win here as well.
5. Icy Short Blonde Hair
The great thing about this shade of blonde is that you can pair it with overbearing lipstick colors. You could go for this vintage red, but you can also try some more modern plum, green, acid blueberry, and black hues.
6. The Jennifer Lawrence
When Jennifer Lawrence decided to cut her long locks, she went for a short blonde hairstyle and started wearing heavy eye makeup. She started telling us that she grew up and that she’s full-on va-va-voom now!
7. White Short Blonde Hair
If you want to take a walk down the natural lane, you can try this white blonde color that looks very natural. Also, remember to dye your roots and undergrowth just a shade darker. We love the top knot too.
8. The Kaley Cuoco
Yet another hair transformation that left us all gasping was that of actress Kaley Cuoco. We followed her and her long wavy hair for years on The Big Bang Theory. And then, all of a sudden, here she was with a blonde pixie.
9. Dawn Short Blonde Hair
This shade of blonde is called dawn, and it is easy to see why. The trick with this color, as with the haircut, is to dye your roots dark. Go for a simple, choppy bob, where your hairstylist can finish off the ends using a razor.
10. The Long Asymmetrical Pixie
The pixie cut has been trending for years now. Consequently, there are now so many variants of it that we couldn’t even count them. And do we love this one: it’s an asymmetrical pixie cut that’s longer and edgier on one side.
11. Artistic Short Blonde Hair
If you really want to make an impression, you can always go for the artsy version of the short blonde bob. You can copy this one, if you like, or come up with your own or simply allow your hairdresser to do what they do best.
12. The Victoria Beckham
Remember when Victoria Beckham was still holding on to her Spice Girls years? One of the ways she was doing this was by wearing a short and very gelled and spiky pixie with long bangs.
13. Tomboy Short Blonde Hair
This is one haircut for the books. It’s so pretty that you’ll spend a lot of time admiring it. Also, to add a more feminine touch to it, simply wear some oversized jewelry. This shade of blonde also looks stunning on her beautiful skin tone.
14. The Miley Cyrus
Our countdown of big changes, hair-wise, continues with Miley Cyrus. As she grew up, she also decided to chop off her locks and dye them in various shades of blonde – mostly.
15. The Evan Rachel Wood
Is it just us, or has actress Evan Rachel Wood has never looked better? Here, she is wearing short blonde hair with a butternut shade in the front and brown sugar all around the back.
16. The Kristen Stewart
The world first met Kristen Stewart when she had dark brown hair and played Bella in the Twilight saga. Since then, however, she too went and has been sporting short hairstyles for women, most of them in shades of blonde.
17. The Michelle Williams
Since she portrayed Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn a few years ago, it became obvious for everyone that Michelle Williams is the kind of girl that can totally rock short blonde haircuts for women.
18. The Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera, the miracle songstress, looks good no matter what she does. Here, she is sporting a rough and layered chin-length bob in a dirty ice shade of blonde that is further accentuated by the heavy makeup.
19. The Helen Mirren
Dame Helen Mirren is the embodiment of class and elegance. Her short blonde hair is actually a mixture of London fog gray and sun-kissed blonde, and her cut is a long and wavy pixie with side-parted bangs.
20. Short Blonde Hair with Purple Roots
This truly is a combination to die for. This icy shade of platinum blonde hair is made all the prettier by the addition of grape juice purple at the roots. These two shades really bring each other out in a fantastic way!

21. Platinum Is Still King
Platinum has and continues to be one of the most sought after shades of blonde dye. That’s partly thanks to the fact that it is easy to pair with other colors.
22. The Taylor Swift
It really does seem like Taylor Swift has a face made specifically for blonde hair, be it on the shorter or longer side. She always wears light natural or macadamia blonde with darker roots and, of course, the red lipstick which she has admitted she cannot leave the house without.
23. The Balayage Short Blonde Hair
If you want to go for balayage, this is the way to do it. Instead of a dry blonde, you can mix a platinum shade with some arctic nuances as well as beige and very light caramel. You will get a pretty natural look, just like Julianne Hough in the picture above.
24. The Meryl Streep
Meryl Streep’s look in The Devil Wears Prada is truly iconic. She portrayed a character based on Vogue’s own Anna Wintour. However, since the producers didn’t want to copy the fashion guru’s exact haircut, they gave Meryl this short blonde hairdo.
25. The Meg Ryan
One of the most iconic short hairstyles of these past few decades has to belong to silver screen sweetheart’s Meg Ryan. Back in her heyday, she used to sport this very shaggy long pixie in different shades of blonde.
26. The Anne Hathaway
Although not the most flattering color on her, Anne Hathaway proved she can get away with blonde as well. Here she is with a long pixie and a comb over paired with a toned-down smokey eye and a nude lip.
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 bob with natural brown roots and light feathery ends.
28. Frozen Over
This was an iconic look for 2016: tousled arctic, short blonde hair, eyeliner cat eye, a contoured face, matte lips, strong eyebrows, and, of course, a nose ring. It’s still a very cool look.
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 a gorgeous looking style. Don’t be afraid to use it as an inspiration for your hair as well, especially if you have blue-green eyes.
31. The Marilyn Monroe
It would have been impossible even to attempt to create a list of short blonde hair ideas without including Marilyn Monroe in it. Here she is in a B&W original picture of her blonde bombshell curls.
32. Curly Short Blonde Hair
This is a really easy way to style short curly locks. The hair is cut into a pixie shape with shaved sides and back. 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 sporting a very chic and sleek classic bob.
34. The Rosie Huntington Whitely
The supermodel has a facial bone structure to die for which helps her pull off just about any haircut out there including this short blonde one. It’s a shoulder-length bob with stunning beach waves.
35. The Kate Moss
Yet another supermodel on our list, Kate Moss’ hair is one for the books. This dirty sandy blonde perfectly highlights her hazel eyes. 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 and with choppy ends.
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.
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.
39. Shaggy and Pink
The first two things that pop out when looking at this haircut are just how perfectly shaggy it looks. And also the light pink bangs. The back side is faded, ending in a very blunt cut.
40. The Khloe Kardashian
If you are at loss for inspiration, you can always take a leaf from the Kardashian look book. Take Khloe and her choppy shoulder-length bob, for example, if you want a shorter look.

41. Blonde, Purple, Pink, and Pastel
It’s always a great idea to combine blonde with something as it’s such an easy way 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.
42. The Zebra
Short blonde hair can be very versatile and this lovely lady is here to prove this one more time. She’s sporting an ultra-short pixie cut and using the blonde hair color and side-parting to create a zebra pattern in 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 into a pixie in the back and leaving some long bangs in the front.
44. The Alice Liddell
You don’t know who Alice Liddell was? How about just Alice? Still no? How about Alice in Wonderland? The little girl who lived in England and who inspired one of the most famous books of all time had a haircut just like this.
45. The Emeli Sande
The Sparrow songstress has a signature look and this is it. Evidently, it involves short blonde hair that is, in fact, a sandy colored fauxhawk, with shaved sides and curls or straight hair on top.
46. Cartoon Blonde
One way to stand out from the crowd is to dye your hair a lovely cartoon blonde. Think Lady Gaga and let her become a source of inspiration!
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 T-shirt is so very cute too, so go for both!
48. The Scarlet Johansson
Nowadays, Scar Jo sports short hair in either blonde or brunette shades. However, here we went for this amazing ginger blonde vintage hairstyle that she wore for a red carpet event. Classy and beautiful!
49. The Melon Cat
You might associate this haircut with the melon cat. And you would be right, it does look exactly like that. Except 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 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 look straight from the 90s. The choppy bob with a little bit of pink here and there, 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 reason why Rachel McAdams was elected to play queen of the cool girls Regina George in Mean Girls. Long hair, short hair, curly hair, straight hair, blonde, brunette, pink, pastel, she can pull anything off!
53. The Dark Blonde Mia Farrow
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.
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 work its magic.
55. The Courtney Love
We circle to her once more, only this time, here she actually is. 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 B&W touched up photo.
56. Wavy Short Blonde Hair
If you want to copy this look, you will have to bring out the curling iron. Use some mousse to give the hair a bit of texture. Or, you can try braiding your hair overnight and letting it loose in the morning to get this gorgeous look.
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 as is if 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 as the long bob is that it will accentuate your natural features. With a lob like this one, part your hair sideways and scoop it behind your ears to showcase your cheekbones.
59. Two Tones
You don’t have to go all blonde: instead, go two-tone! This sandy tone mixed with platinum blonde rests regally on top while underneath, you can see the model’s natural hair color.
60. The Cinnamon Blonde Bob
Try something different if you really want to stand out from the crowds. Go for short blonde hair in a delicious cinnamon caramel color!
