A blonde bob is a short to medium-length hair cut around the 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 cropped cut can be refreshing!

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!

Convinced of all the right reasons to try this classic, sexy option? Then it’s time to switch your style to one of these blonde bob hairstyles below!

A rooty blended blonde balayage bob is perfect and eye-catching. Plus, it allows a softer grow-out. You can extend your appointments! You need to ensure you leave enough natural at the root or add a root smudge to give depth to this color. I suggest not overdoing it on the blonde balayage. Take a ‘less is more’ tactic to ensure you have dimension.

When getting a bob with balayage, ask for a few balayage pieces around the foils to add depth to the blonde and brighten the rest of the ends!

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.

#34: Long Blonde Bob

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 balayage placement showcase 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. Keep everything soft with a bit of root for a lower maintenance color, but kick it up a notch around the face so you feel nice and bright!

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

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

#37: White Blonde Blunt Cut Bob

This is a modern blunt bob with blonde hair. Having a soft shadow at the root makes this white-blonde bob appear more of a lived-in look and is so much better maintenance-wise for that woman who only has a little time on their hands. Pairing it with a modern blunt edge but softness around the face perfectly blends the two together.

This straight-cut blonde bob isn’t for everyone, though. To lighten the hair to achieve a blonder bob like this 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 would be best to do it only once a week, so you can always have that fresh salon blonde at home.

#38: Blonde Long Bob

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, 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, which makes it so perfect!

Women with this short bob blond hair 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 them with some Davine’s dry texture spray (my fav) for hold and to add volume.

#39: Classy Blonde Bob for Older Ladies

A classy blonde bob for older ladies is a great option for women who want little maintenance and a carefree style. Cutting parted bangs and long layers brings softness around the face, creating a blonde shaggy bob look. Keeping the length above the shoulder makes throwing in hot rollers easy, or using a round brush when blowing hair out. Finish with a dab of smoothing serum to keep flyaways in place.
