When people say that blondes have more fun, they could be right. In a sense, a blonde does have more fun, because there are several hairstyles for her that another woman with a different hair color may not be able to pull off with that same intensity and appeal. If you are a blonde, consider yourself lucky. Blond icons Marilyn Monroe, Gwen Stefani and Paris Hilton have all donned some of the best hairstyles that you can mimic for a sexier you.
Soft Wave Hairstyle
Marilyn Monroe is probably the first person that often comes to mind when you think of a famous blonde. Her sexy body, beautiful face, alluring smile and soft voice complement perfectly with her blond hair. Marilyn’s soft wave hairstyles, ranging from short to medium length, were among her identifying features.
Marilyn’s soft wave hairstyles from the 1950s until her death in 1962 were mostly at her chin level, parted at the side with added soft curls. Keeping this hairstyle is high maintenance. Regular trimming is needed to maintain the length, and regular curling is needed to maintain the waves. Set aside at least 30 minutes for styling if you want to copy Marilyn’s soft waves. Investing in a quality 2-inch barrel curling iron, preferably made of ceramic, will result in better and faster heat distribution than other types.
Platinum Blond Curly Hairstyle
Gwen Stefani may have copied Marilyn Monroe’s hairstyle quite a few times, but that does not mean that she does not have a style of her own. Her platinum blond curly hairstyle makes her more attractive and easily spotted at any red carpet events. She often complements her hairstyle with bright red lipsticks for a sexier look.
The platinum blond curly hairstyle works best for medium and long hair. For best results, bleaching is necessary to get that platinum blond effect, especially if you have dark blond hair. It is best to have the pros bleach your hair if you will attempt to do this hairstyle so that you get the right mixture for your type of hair.
Using heated rollers or a 2-inch barrel curling iron on all areas of your hair will give the voluminous curls. Spray on medium- to firm-hold hairspray to hold the curls longer.
Short Chic Bob Hairstyle
When it comes to donning short hair, blondes definitely have the edge. Capitalizing on her blond hair is one of Paris Hilton’s fashion statements. Known as a fashionista, her hair has numerous looks, long or short, straight or wavy. In 2007, for example, she drastically transformed her long wavy hair into a straight, short bob hairstyle, which highlighted her long neck, making her look taller.
To get the look, cut hair short at chin level. Trim the bangs a little shorter than the sides and back. Side-sweep the bangs and apply styling liquid gel or mousse. Use a flat iron to tame wayward or frizzy hair.
