Short blonde hair has always been the trademark of the fun-loving and the free-spirited among us. Although the hairstyle has been around for a while, there is no shortage of spunky variations. Depending on personal preference, you can wear your short blonde hairstyle neat and subtle or get bold with it by throwing in some edgy cuts and bright highlights. Either way, the buttery complexion of the blonde hairstyle will always be the feminine touch needed to make your hair look utterly exquisite. Here are 60 ideas to ensure that your hair never gets boring.
# 1 Silky Platinum Bob
Whether you prefer to play it safe or not, it should not be an excuse to have a boring hairstyle. This simple platinum blonde bob looks lustrous enough to avoid being called plain. There is a slight part on the side and the side-swept fringe all serve to give the hair a hint of asymmetry which is very attractive.
Get experimental with your hair by incorporating different styles to create one amazing short blonde hair design. The addition of a lustrous hue of platinum blonde to the golden locks is a nice touch as it makes the hair look positively radiant. It carries a slightly tousled appeal especially at the edges which give it a bolder textural contrast.
# 3 Platinum Pixie
The playful pixie is a fun look on its own. However, giving it a bit of bold color and texture makes it irresistible. The length of the hair in this example has played to the model’s advantage as sweeping it to one side creates asymmetry without having to commit your hair to the scissors. The radiant platinum blonde color can be toned down by using matte styling products.
# 4 Wavy Delight
One of the perks of rocking a short blonde hairstyle is that styling it is easy. You can achieve that audacious asymmetry simply by styling one side of your hair to look short while sweeping the hair on top towards the opposite side. Adding highlights is optional but it does give your hair a multi-dimensional appearance and helps you to get that flashy finish.
# 5 Classic Bob with Babylights
You can spice up the most mainstream variations of short blonde hair by throwing in a bit of lowlight to give it a little oomph. This textured bob has been given a special twist by the addition of bold lowlights and a smidge of warm highlights to add depth and give a little dimension to the conservative cut.
# 6 Balayage Waterfall

# 7 Sexy Bed Head
We all know how difficult it is to look intentionally messy, especially with long hair. However, short hair affords you the luxury of stylishly messing up your locks to give them an edgy disheveled appearance that lasts throughout the day. The side-sweep can be achieved by gently pushing the fringe to one side with the fingers. The balayage finish is amazing as it gives the hair more character and an awesome depth.
# 8 Curly Pixie
Rocking the short pixie hairstyle opens you up to endless styling options. If you are looking for something fiercely elegant, throwing in some bold color to accentuate the texture is the right way to go.
