A short blonde bob hair color is a fresh, pretty haircut with bright, yellowish tones. The best thing about this hair trend is it’s customizable. Feel free to tweak the cut to suit any face shape or change the shade to flatter skin color.

For the bombshells who wanna go short and blonde, stylist Sarah Krook from Victoria, BC, has tips to share. “Trust your stylist.” Maintenance and styling options are the key things that women need to know about this look.

To keep the hair on point, Krook suggests going at most five weeks between cuts. “The roots get pretty frustrating at the 4-week mark.”

“If you don’t want such a high-maintenance hairstyle, I recommend a lot more texture,” Krook adds. “A drop root blonde foil or balayage is a great option, too. Both get a more natural grow-out that can push longer between appointments.”

When styling, Krook points out that each hair type requires distinctive products. “I like using Eleven Australia’s I Want Body Texture Spray for finer hair. Spraying it lightly at the roots before blow-drying gives a nice texture to help build up volume.”

Krook continues, “For thicker or more coarse bleached locks, I love Liquid Spell by Davines. It strengthens the mane and gives body to help it look healthier, silky, and naturally shiny.”

There can be long, brown-haired ladies who’ll think of taking a leap to change their current style. And if you’re one of them, Krook suggests showing the stylist some photos of the inspiration. “Your idea of blonde might vary from a full-global bleach out to some subtle balayage.”

#1: Modern Messy Blonde Short Bob

The messy blonde short bob is a modern, chic style perfect for any occasion. In my professional experience, one of the best ways to style this messy bob is with a 1 1/4” barrel curling iron. Add some Masterpiece hairspray by Bed Head for texture and shine.

The chin-length cut beautifully frames the face, enhancing facial features. The white-blonde color adds a modern touch, perfect for those wanting a fresh, youthful look. This style is low-maintenance but will require regular trims to maintain its shape and texture.

#4: Short Barbie Blonde Bob Style

The short barbie blonde bob style is a trendy and glamorous hair color and cut with a chin-length bob with bold and vibrant blonde tones. The blonde hair is bright, having hints of golden tones, resembling the classic blonde hair color seen on Barbie dolls. This chic hairstyle is a fresh and youthful twist on a classic look. The short length and striking blonde color create a modern and trendy hairstyle.

#5: Elegant Blonde Bob with Highlights

If you’re looking to brighten up your look, consider an elegant blonde bob with highlights. The mix of creamy blonde and golden tones is a great way to blend with your existing hair color to create a natural look. The blonde-golden tone blend suits olive and tan skin tones well. It can bring out your skin’s warmth and glow. If you have a lighter skin, go for a blonde shade close to level 7 or above for a better result.

#6: Short Straight Dark Blonde Bob

If you have short straight hair, try doing a dark blonde bob. The dark blonde tone will blend seamlessly with your natural color. Your best bet would be to plan your haircut appointments ahead of time to keep this cut sharp.

#7: Visible Layers on a Short Blonde Bob

Creating visible layers on a short blonde bob can add dimension and movement to the hair. This results in a more youthful and fresh appearance. Opt for a blonde shade that complements your skin tone and natural hair color. Your colorist can blend warm and cool tones to achieve a natural yet vibrant effect. If you have layering, you can give the illusion of more volume and thickness. This is due to the strategic placement of color. This technique works well for those with finer hair or hair starting to thin. Consult with your stylist to see if visible layers would be a good fit for your hair type and lifestyle.

#9: Short Blonde French Bob with Fringe

When you plan to go all over with a platinum blonde, you will turn heads for sure. This color is a high-maintenance option with frequent trips to get re-growth touch-ups. To prevent yellow and brass buildup in the hair, try Oway’s Silver Steel Hair Bath Purple Shampoo. Stop using it two weeks before a touch-up and only do it once every other week.

#10: Blonde Dimensional Bob

A blonde dimensional bob is modern and trendy. Adding dimension to your blonde is always in style and helps to keep the hair looking healthy. Ask for a babylight with an equal mixture of 9g+9v to add shine and dimension without affecting the blonde. Avoid over-blonding to maintain the integrity of the hair. Do this by mixing up your color process with this dimensional technique.

It will be close to your natural hair. Dragged out with a blending comb, it will create depth and a low-maintenance look. Listen to your stylist’s recommendations for home care to avoid dryness. Use a weekly mask like Keune Care’s Vital Nutrition Mask for moisture and shine.

#12: Short Bob with a Subtle Deep Side Part

Ask your stylist for a subtle, deep side part to add movement and dimension to your bob. To keep this look fresh, use Oribe Matte Waves Texture Lotion to give it natural separation. If you want dramatic hairstyles, I advise having your colorist lighten the ends. Ask for balayage highlights so they blend seamlessly together. And don’t forget to bring pictures of what you’re aiming for so you can be on the same page as your stylist!

Dark Golden Blonde Bob for Thick Hair

#13: Dark Golden Blonde Bob for Thick Hair

Consider a dark golden blonde bob for a fun new take on a natural redhead. This radiant shade will surely give your mane the shine and dimension it deserves. Regular trims are essential to maintain shape. To keep this look in check, use products specifically formulated for colored hair. The Joico Color Balance Purple Shampoo & Conditioner set will maintain your blonde hue. Plus, it won’t dry out your locks. Make sure to communicate any desired length with your stylist before getting started.

#14: Sleek Blonde Bob for Fine Hair

A sleek bob for finer hair creates the illusion of thickness. My best advice is to maintain hair around the face, so no feathery shaping. A tone that’s pure and free from brassiness looks classy. Keep in mind blonde hair needs to be kept in good condition as it can weaken the ends making the hair look wispy.
