Blondes are easy to spot, even from a distance. That is why, even more, they need beautiful hairstyles. Choosing a beautiful hairstyle will make you stand out even more if you are a blonde. Choices vary from short, medium and long as well as straight and curly. Opt for a style that will flatter you the most and turn heads in the process.
Short, Curly and Platinum
Blond icons, such as Marilyn Monroe and Jean Harlow, both wore short curly hair. Their platinum blond hair that complemented their beautiful figures helped them earn their blond bombshell status. Fast forward to the stars of today–Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera–and you will see two platinum blondes who have imitated the hairstyles of Monroe and Harlow.
Gwen and Christina, both talented singers, donned beautiful, short platinum blond curls whether they were appearing as guests on shows or award ceremonies, doing a music video or just having fun out in town. Trimming your blond hair at chin level is the first step to achieving this look. If you have dark blond tresses, bleaching can help in turning them into platinum. Part your hair on the side, and then add curls by using a 2-inch barrel curling iron. Applying styling mousse on your freshly towel-dried hair helps release tangles and knots before you start curling. Then, apply curls by winding each 2-inch section of your hair around the barrel and hold it for 20 seconds. Tousle your hair once done.
Straight and Sleek
For a more feminine and alluring, beautiful blond tresses, try a straight and sleek hairstyle, similar to the one Paris Hilton used to style her blond hair in one of her photo shoots. Part your hair at the center. Use a paddle brush to remove knots and tangles. Keeping your long blond hair frizz-free is one of the tricks in keeping it looking sleek. Using a hot ceramic flat iron to straighten your locks can help tame the frizzes. Applying a serum prior to ironing your hair can keep your hair looking more beautiful and shiny.
In the 1960s, supermodel Twiggy started a hair revolution by cutting her blond hair into a short hairstyle known as the crop cut. To this date, the crop hairstyle is one of the preferences for many blondes who like the sleek and clean lines that this hairstyle provides. The crop hairstyle can make your jaw line stand out. Trimming your hair at nape level is the first step in creating this style. Side-sweep your hair to one side and tuck it behind your ears to reveal your eyes and cheeks. A dab of styling cream will keep the crop cut looking beautiful.
