Silvery-White Pixie With a Flip

The pixie is easily one of the most iconic short hairstyles for blonde hair. It’s effortlessly chic and sophisticated—especially when paired with an all-over, silvery-platinum color and a deep side part. If icy white blonde is your vibe, a purple toning shampoo and conditioner system—like Redken Blondage Shampoo and Conditioner—can help keep your color looking vibrant and combat any unwanted brassiness.

Pin-Straight Blunt Bob

You don’t need naturally straight hair to pull off this trendy look—just part your hair in the middle and use a flat iron (like the L'Oréal Professionnel Steampod Flat Iron & Styler) to create perfectly smooth, frizz-free strands. But don’t forget to apply a heat protectant before flat ironing, like Redken Acidic Color Gloss Heat Protection Leave-In Treatment. This formula hydrates, detangles, and provides heat protection up to 450°F.

Curly Platinum Pixie

For a daring yet low-maintenance option, try a curly platinum blonde pixie. All you need to pull off this look is natural curls or coils and the right styling products. Before air-drying your ultra-short mane, apply a moisturizing leave-in cream or spray, like Mizani 25 Miracle Milk Leave-In Conditioner, and comb the product through your strands. Next, add extra volume and texture with Mizani Lived-In Finishing Spray, and you’re ready to head out for the day.

Blonde Mullet With Air-Dried Waves

This ‘80s-inspired hairstyle has just the right amount of rock-and-roll with a modernized twist. To master this edgy blonde look, you’ll want to opt for a choppy style with lots of texture. Natural, air-dried waves work great with a modern mullet, so grab your favorite texturizing spray to create that scrunched, lived-in effect.

Rooted Ash Blonde With a Middle Part

Rooted hair color is everywhere right now, and it’s a great option if you want a lower-maintenance style that requires less frequent visits to the salon. Your colorist can help you achieve the perfect rooted look on any base color—it’s all about creating a smooth transition between your dark roots and blonde highlights or all-over color.

Platinum Blonde Buzz Cut

There’s no denying that shaving off most of your hair is a bold move, but that’s what we love most about the platinum blonde buzz cut. This look is equal parts daring and iconic—making it perfect for free-spirited folks who want fuss-free strands. Plus, going for this big chop is a great way to show off your features and help get rid of damaged ends.

Wavy Violet Rose Lob

Pink hair is still very much on-trend in 2024, whether you prefer a hint of pink or an all-over rosy tint. To add a bit of romance to short, color-treated blonde locks, try a demi-permanent, color-depositing hair toner in pastel pink or violet rose. This style is extra-flattering on those with fair skin but can be customized to suit all skin tones. It also looks great when paired with soft, loose waves if your short strands are ear-length or longer.

Ash White Voluminous Bixie

If you love the cropped length of a pixie but want some extra length and layers in the front, a bixie may be perfect for you. The voluminous bixie really makes a statement when paired with all-over platinum blonde, but it looks equally gorgeous on those with blonde highlights or natural blonde hair. To keep your bixie looking voluminous all day long, apply a few pumps of Pureology Style + Protect On The Rise Root Lifting Mousse directly onto towel-dried roots before styling.

Vintage Finger Waves

Give your short blonde mane some vintage flair with finger waves—a heatless curling technique inspired by the glamorous 1920s flapper aesthetic. Finger waves are created using a fine-tooth comb, plenty of firm-hold gel (like Matrix Controller Gel), and your fingers. The technique for this hairstyle can require a bit of patience, but essentially, you’ll use your fingers to slowly mold sections of hair into S-shaped waves. To learn how, check out our easy finger wave tutorial for short hair.

White Blonde Buzz Cut With Designs

Blondes who want to take their bold buzz cut to the next level can ask their stylist to create a fun design, like this asymmetrical pattern, at the nape of their neck or on the sides of their head.

Half-Up Space Buns

Space buns are an easy hairstyle for short blonde hair that we can’t get enough of. They’re playful, flattering on all hair types, and work for pretty much any occasion. If your short blonde hair is chin-length or longer, try creating two half-up buns on both sides of your crown. Use bobby pins to pin down any stray strands, or create face-framing tendrils to give your space buns a more relaxed, casual vibe.

Curly Lob With Golden Blonde Highlights

This one is for anyone with naturally curly brown hair and warm undertones in their skin. The lob is a classic short hairstyle that typically falls right above the shoulders. We think this style looks stunning with natural ringlets and golden blonde or caramel highlights atop a darker base. To keep your curls looking hydrated and defined, apply Mizani True Textures Curl Enhancing Lotion to damp hair in small sections.

Playing with your part is an easy way to mix up any short blonde style.

Mini French Twist With Peek-a-Boo Pink Highlights

The French twist is a timeless hairstyle that embodies elegance and sophistication. The classic take on this look is typically reserved for those with longer locks. However, with a mini French twist, you can try it out on short blonde hair that’s around shoulder length. This mini French twist look with peek-a-boo highlights uses the same technique as the traditional style, but twists only the top half of your hair.

Greige Bob With Long Bangs

Greige hair is a trendy hue that perfectly fuses beige and gray tones for a blonde shade that’s neither too warm nor too cool. For this look, you can ask your stylist for an all-over greige with a blunt bob cut and long bangs. Use your flat iron, a comb, and your favorite heat protectant, and try to get all of your strands as straight and sleek as possible. Finish the look with a high-shine finishing spray, like Redken Shine Flash Spray.

Hair Roller Curls

Hair rollers have been having a moment on social media lately. This old-school, heatless curling method is an excellent way to add volume to any lob or bob haircut. Grab velcro rollers and apply them to sections of damp hair all around your head, securing each roller with an alligator clip. Allow your curls to dry and help them set with a few spritzes of Matrix Fixer Hairspray. Then, remove the rollers, gently brush out your curls, and spray a bit of Matrix Builder Wax Spray for added body and texture.

Flat iron waves can instantly elevate short blonde hair and help you channel a laid-back, surfer girl vibe. Apply a heat protectant spray and part your hair however you like. Then, using one-inch sections of hair, move the flat iron back and forth down the length of each section (like in the above tutorial) to create subtle waves around your entire head.

Mini Half-Up Top Knot

This mini top knot hairstyle is one of our go-tos when growing out a short blonde haircut. It’s cute and casual and works great for hiding uneven hair growth. To style a half-up top knot, pull the top half of your hair up into a high messy bun and secure with an elastic. Then, use bobby pins wherever needed to help pin down any loose and unruly strands.

Layered Bob With Loose Curls

This chic hairstyle for short blonde hair is ideal if you have thin strands that tend to fall flat quickly. Starting with towel-dried hair, apply Redken All Soft Moisture Restore Leave-In Treatment on your mid-lengths and ends. Then, blow dry your hair using a small round brush and spritz Redken Thermal Spray 11 throughout your locks. Grab a curling iron and curl all of your hair in the same direction (away from your face) to create loose waves. To finish, brush through your curls with a wide-tooth comb and seal in the look with Redken Brushable Hairspray.

Lavender-Tinted Waves on Ash Blonde

Golden Blonde Stacked Bob

The stacked bob is a chin-length hairstyle that’s cut at an angle, making it slightly shorter in the back and longer in the front. It features lots of angled layers that create a sharper, more graduated effect. To get a sleek, stacked bob style like this one, you’ll need a flat iron and a smoothing shine serum, like Kérastase Huile Gloss Réparatrice Intensive Shine Repair Oil.
