21 Best Blonde Bob Color Ideas to Inspire Your Next Cut and Color

Best blonde bob haircuts

A blonde bob is a short to medium length hair cut at around ear to shoulder level and colored with any shade of blonde. If you’re tired of lengthy hairstyles and dark or vivid hair colors, slashing down to a light shade and a cropped cut can be a refreshing result!

This year is the year to be courageous and revealing, and with the abundant shades of blonde, it’s guaranteed that there’s one for you to express your individuality. Matched with a bob cut that takes on the shape of your face, you’re sure to have a look that’s oh-so-flattering!

Seriously fierce blonde bobs have been the signature looks of Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon, Kim Kardashian, and Taraji Henson for some time, and they proved that this hairstyle suits every skin tone and hair texture flawlessly. Florida hairstylist and colorist Justin Dillaha creates all kinds and lengths of blonde bobs on babes and demonstrates how texture plays a huge role in making this hairstyle work out for the overall look.

If you plan on keeping the same length and color for a long time, salon visits should be on your calendar every 4-6 weeks. In between those visits, using the appropriate products and styling tools can make or break your hairstyle’s longevity. Consult your stylist for the best recommendations!

Bob With Blonde Highlights

A casual blonde with caramel colors gives all the simplicity that you need in a hairstyle. Add some soft waves to volumize hair.

Q&A with style creator, Sarah Krook
Master Stylist and Davines Ambassador @ Hunt & Gather Hair Co. in Victoria, BC

How would you describe this?

This bob with blonde highlights has a slight stagger drop root! It was achieved by slightly angling the foils towards the back of the head and painting the lightener in a V-shape on tiny weave highlights or “babylights”. This achieves a staggering natural root, allowing you to let the color grow out softly without a harsh root line! When getting a bob with balayage, ssk for a few balayage pieces around the foils to add depth to the blonde and brighten the rest of the ends!

What’s your best advice?

This long blonde bob works really well for those low maintenance women who only want to touch up their highlights every so often. The cut is a simple long textured bob or “lob” which works great on women with fine hair, but lots of it. The blonde bob with layers in the back helps to create shape and dimension. When paired with an amazing product like Bedroom Hair by Kevin Murphy, it can help add height at the crown and elongate the face. This blonde long bob works really well on a rounder face shape.

Blonde Choppy Bob

How would you describe this?

This choppy blonde lob is a combo of old grown out color and baby lights full head weave. Oligo cool tones and 10 volume were used. Then it was toned with 9T JKS bond builder toner. Then Brazilian Blowout Split End Corrector was applied for integrity and durability.

It was cut as a simple undercut wet, using the 7-inch beveled shears from Hanzo Hattori. Then softened it up dry using the 40 teeth texture shears also by Hanzo Hattori shears.

What’s your best advice?

Consider how much you wear your hair up. You’d want the maintenance of keeping it blunt and fresh. For color, this can vary depending on the natural level. Overall this is a pretty cute simple cut and style for all women!

How would you describe this?

This could be described as a sandy/beige platinum beachy textured blunt bob!

What’s your best advice?

This blonde bob hair is perfect for women who really aren’t the best at styling their hair and is looking for an edgy/trendy vibe. If cut right, the blonde bob cut will almost style itself with a few twists of the flat iron and some texture spray. Texture spray with this platinum blonde bob will be your best friend. This cut looks best on an oval/long face shape and is amazing for people with really fine/thin hair. It makes the ends look a lot thicker!

Medium Blonde Bob

Q&A with style creator, Danae Michele Jacob
Hairstylist & Business Owner @ Danae Michele Hair Design in Calgary, AB


How would you describe this?

This medium blonde bob that’s angled is ideal for women with long, grown-out blonde hair. A ton of foils was done and then it was overall toned. Foils are perfect because they add great dimension to hair that is feeling so dull.

The cut is an inverted bob haircut. The pieces were kept long around the face because leaving length to at least just below the chin helps elongate the face – especially for women who might have a rounder face.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Invest in good hair products – not only to help with styling but also to protect their new color and help it last longer. This bob with blonde highlights can add body and shape for women who have thinner or limp hair. It can also add more freedom and versatility for women who have super thick hair.

With having a more golden color, it makes a woman look more youthful while warming up the skin tone. It’s not only perfect for any skin color, but it’s also great for those who want to spend less time at the salon.

This color and cut looks good on all women, whether you’re in your early 20s or late 40s.

What’s your best advice?

This is perfect for women who want a change. Not only does it go with any woman, but the color fits all skin tones. Golden blonde with a short blunt cut is edgy, stylish, and easy to style.

Hairstylist / Master Colorist @ Bianchis Salon in Clinton Township, MI


How would you describe this?

This blonde lob is a lived-in chic. The color was kept a bit rooted, so there’s a soft grow out and it never appears to have new growth. The angled lob with the soft romantic wave and the placement of the balayage really just showcases everything perfectly!

Don’t you love the brightness of the highlights around her face? Always remember, your highlights are only as strong as your lowlights. For a lower maintenance color, keep everything soft with a bit of root, but kick it up a notch around the face so you feel nice and bright!

What’s your best advice?

Have fun with this long blonde bob! If you are interested in lower maintenance color then this is for you! You can always brighten up more around the face and keep everything else soft. Depending on our face shape is where the shape of blonde bob haircuts comes in.

You can keep the angle but if you have a longer face shape you may want to consider incorporating side-swept bangs or curtain bangs. A blonde bob with side bangs is super trendy right now!

White Blonde Blunt Cut Bob

Q&A with style creator, Keira Salton
Manager @ Elenbi Salons in Coolum Beach, Australia


How would you describe this?

This is a modern blunt bob with blonde hair. Having a soft shadow at the root makes this blonde appear to be more of a lived-in look and is so much better maintenance-wise for that woman who doesn’t have a lot of time on their hands. Pairing it with a super modern blunt edge but softness around the face blends the two together perfectly.

What’s your best advice?

This straight cut blonde bob isn’t for everyone though. To lighten the hair to this blonde takes a lot of work and sometimes won’t happen in one go.

Ask your stylist to add the L’Oreal Smart Bond into the color, ending with a Kerastase Ritual to keep the strength and nutrition locked in. The Evo Fabuloso purple conditioner is a must-have to keep the tone of the blonde not turn to a brassy color. It’s something you need to do only once a week, so you can always have that fresh salon blonde at home.

Q&A with style creator, Jessie Bennett
Master Stylist @ Pure & Couture Salon in Destin, FL


How would you describe this?

This is a cute undone long bob for blonde hair that is perfect for any woman on the go! Put a few waves in with your curling iron and mess it up with some texture spray and you’re out the door. We love how natural the blonde is and how the cut complements it by showing off all of the beachy dimension. Perfection is not the key to this style – and that’s what actually makes it so perfect!

What’s your best advice?

Women with this cut and color definitely need to be committed to coming into the salon every 6-8 weeks for a face frame highlight and a trim. For styling, use a 1″ curling iron and curl away from your face on both sides. Run your fingers through your curls and tousle it with some Davines dry texture spray (my personal fav) for hold and to add volume.
