Light blonde hair is versatile mainly due to the fact that it exists in numerous different hues. Some common shades of blonde include buttery, golden, icy, platinum and sandy. Choosing a color that best fits your skin tone is easy when it comes to blonde hairstyles as it complements most fair skin tones wonderfully.

# 22 Curly Ice Blonde Hair
Curly texture is the best way to show off paler hues of blonde such as this chilly ice color.

# 27 Light Blonde Hair with Babylights

When it comes to blonde hair, balayage works better as it gives it soft shades and seamless color transitions.
# 36 Ash Blonde
Although the color is fantastic especially when it comes to how it complements rosy skin tones, the hair could use a healthier body and natural texture.

# 46 Beach Blonde Summer Look
