Before your next hair appointment, check out these pictures of hairstyles for long blonde hair.
#1: Buttery Golden Blonde on a Long Straight Cut
It’s a rich buttery golden blonde balayage – light brown root color blended with baby lights and balayage to create a seamless appearance from top to bottom. There’s a rich tonality and dimension to the long blonde hair. It gives you the ability to wear it naturally straight or curl it, and the color will just pop.
Straight hair which is fine to medium would be more ideal for this long blond hair. A coarser texture would not achieve the same results and not look as good on a day to day basis. A blonde balayage can look good anywhere from 12 weeks to six months.
#2: Long Layered Blonde Balayage Hair
This long layered blonde balayage hair is the definition of beauty and fashion. The layered chop, the wavy style, and the bright blonde hue—all work together hand in hand. It’s matched with a shadow root, so it’s easier to manage. To keep its shine, wash the colored hair with purple shampoo.
This blonde balayage for long hair is the perfect neutral sandy blonde. Simple, clean, crisp, and easy to wear wavy, textured, or straight!
Long blonde hair is a labor of love. It takes time and persistence to achieve. Use professionally recommended home care products such as Goldwell’s Kerasilk. These products will keep your blonde bright and shiny, without the unwanted buildup.
#3: Dark Blonde Long Hair with Curled Ends
Dark blonde long hair with curled ends is always in style. Show your stylist some reference photos for placement. Ask for them to mix a toner that suits your skin tone and style. For at-home maintenance, make sure you are masking your hair at least once a week. It will keep those pre-lightened locks healthy. Use a heat protectant on those days you want to throw a curl in your hair.
#4: Long Balayage Waves
Blonde hair is beautiful. Clients always ask me about going blonde and I always tell them the same thing. If your hair is dark to begin with, you should be cautious of going this light. Unless you are someone who doesn’t mind hair maintenance. This color requires monthly salon visits to keep from turning brassy.
#5: Side-Swept Style for Long Blonde Hair
Show off your buttery soft locks with a side-swept style for long blonde hair. In my personal opinion, a long blonde when done right can be very low-maintenance. You must keep the root defused for a soft and subtle grow-out that will look good for months. Pair with a side-swept part for added volume and body around your face, and a fuller-looking appearance.
#6: Warm Blonde Long Hairstyle with Soft Waves
A warm blonde long hairstyle with soft waves is best suited for an oval face shape. A very natural hue of blonde can be a low-maintenance color for a natural medium blonde base. To achieve this, you might want to ask your stylist to throw in some babylights. They will give your blonde a nice blended overall warm look. Take your wand and wrap your hair away from your face and alternating curls throughout your head. Then, spray with the Orbie dry texture spray.
#7: Long Blonde Hair with Curled Ends
Curled ends create a chic and flirty finish on long blonde hair. To achieve this luxurious look, don’t forget your heat protectant. Blonde hair is one of the most fragile shades. That means it needs a lot of tender, loving care if you want to maintain its healthy shine. I like to tell my clients to use heat protectants. Since every product line carries a heat protectant and the options can become a bit overwhelming, ask your stylist which one they recommend.
#8: Long Medium Blonde Hairstyle with Longer Bangs
When trying to manage your hair, the best way to get a low-maintenance hairstyle is to aim for a cut with longer bangs. This color choice won’t demand constant salon maintenance. Plus, longer bangs can easily grow into face-framing.
#9: Messy Long Blonde Waves
You’ll get lots of attention when wearing messy long blonde waves. To achieve beautiful blonde color, your best bet is to have your stylist foil your highlights. Foiling maintains the integrity of your hair. Plus, it enables your colorist to apply the color exactly where it’s needed. Aim to visit your salon about every 8-10 weeks for maintenance. Your long blonde waves can be created with a 1-inch iron, or hot rollers if you want more volume.
#10: Sleek Long Blonde Fine Hair
Sleek long blonde fine hair, never seems to go out of style no matter how much all other trends evolve. Keep in mind, that this specific type of blonding, which we refer to as global, is very high maintenance and can become very expensive over time.
#11: Long Blonde Thin Hair
You should try a long blonde hairstyle with light face-framing layers on thin hair. One of the easiest ways to get fullness is by cutting a blunt cut with minimal layers and more of a bevel or light face-framing. By dyeing your hair you will create added texture to your hair cuticle which gives fine hair added volume and style manageability.
#12: Long Blonde Wavy Hairstyle
A long blonde wavy hairstyle has a vibrant color with a soft root melt to keep the grow-out natural. Balayage specialist Elke Butler from Australia is behind this gorgeous wavy style.
“The root smudge enables to push a 10-12 week regrowth,” says Butler. “This color is for a lady who wants to be blonde without feeling high maintenance.”
Butler suggests a deep cleansing shampoo to remove any dirt and elements that stick to the hair.
#13: Sexy Straight Middle-Parted Blonde Hair
Try a middle part on straight blonde hair for a sexy feel. If you can, try round brushing your hair straight then go back through with a flat iron to smooth out any frizz or flyaways. Using a styling cream and heat protectant helps to nourish your hair, too.
#14: Blonde Balayage with Long Curtain Bangs
Instantly glam up your blonde balayage by pairing it with curtain bangs. Look effortlessly chic and bring the focal point of your hair up to accentuating your cheekbones. Curtain bangs will soften your overall look while also adding structure to your haircut. Don’t forget to lock in your style with a touchable hairspray, such as Joico FlipTurn.
#15: Cool Beach Waves on Long Blonde Locks
Opt for cool beach waves to amp up long blonde locks with Bardot bangs. The longer the hair, the better the results. To style a gem like this, misting a sea salt spray is a must. That is how you can get those beautiful sultry sea salt waves.
#16: Formal Updo with Curls for Long Hair
This formal updo with loose curls for long fair hair is such a glorious masterpiece, perfect for occasions like a prom or wedding. The secret to its beauty lies in how textured and piece-y it turns out. The more tousled it is, the softer and more flawless it appears. This hairdo works more glorious with a beige blonde.

This blonde half-up bun hairdo is so elegant it can take your breath away! If you’re blessed with long and thick tresses, don’t hesitate to copy this trend. It’s easy! Grab your long blonde strands from the top area, twist them, and bring them all up into a bun. Use bobby pins to hold the style in place.

This very long silver-blonde hue for long blonde hair was created by hairstylist Florentina Marciuc of Cluj-Napoca. A bright blonde catches the eyes of everyone.
“The fading process is irreversible and can be aggressive with long blonde streaks. Make sure your hair looks flawless by following your hair stylists’ advice,” adds Marciuc.
#20: Long White Blonde Hairstyle
A long white blonde hairstyle is truly eye-catching and works beautifully on cooler skin tones. This blonde look is high maintenance and needs root touch-ups every 6 weeks. For lower maintenance of this shade, an option could be to highlight blonde hair and still achieve this tone with a little more dimension of your natural color.

Long platinum blonde hair looks best on ladies with cool skin tones. An all over blonde for long hair is gorgeous straight or wavy.
#25: Classic Blonde Highlights
Classic blonde highlights are a trend to go for when wanting hair with a chic dimension. This is one of the many ways to level up a typical haircut. The highlights balance out with the lowlights. Thus, allowing the mane to show movement and depth. To preserve the brightness of the blonde hue, wash the hair with purple shampoo once a week.
“These classic blonde highlights are a natural soft, sun-kissed, beach waved, California blonde,” says hair stylist and style creator Kari Hill of Los Angeles, CA.
“Ask your stylist what color works best with your skin tone,” syas Hill. “To achieve this golden blonde ask for natural soft babylights. Preferably, brighter around the face to look sun-kissed and vibrant.”
#26: Modern-Day Chamomile Blonde Long Hair
An all-natural, modern-day long blonde hairstyle like this is to die for.
You get the illusion of extremely blonde looking hair because none of the ends are left untouched. It’s not low-maintenance because babylights were added with a fading out technique at the top to make it very natural looking.
Healthy hair should be your number one priority, especially when it comes to hairstyles for long blonde hair.
Women with finer hair strands will benefit most from a cut like this. That’s because this hair type can handle color best. It also helps make the hair look much fuller.
#27: Long Neutral Ashy Blonde Balayage + Babylights
Go for a neutral ashy blonde balayage with babylights!
A foilayage was used to create the color, which is just a combination of a full highlight and balayage. It’s the easiest way to brighten a woman up to give her long blonde hair dimension. This technique is great for color corrections because it works to break up an old color.
Since this long light blonde hair brings the brightness all the way up to the root, it’s a higher maintenance color that requires six to eight-week touch-ups for most women. Especially women with a dark base/bright blonde contrast. Visit your stylist after four weeks to re-tone and refresh their color between appointments!
#28: Light Blonde Icing Balayage on Longer Hair
Long light blonde balayage is natural looking and a very low-maintenance color that can be tweaked and specially laid out for any woman with light blonde hair that’s long.
If you’re looking for long blonde hairstyles that are easy and only needs to be touched up a couple of times a year, blonde long hair is for you. Just keep in mind that it might take a couple of sessions to achieve the level of lightness desired.
#29: Long Ashy Blonde Waves
These long ashy blonde waves took effort and creativity. If you don’t want traditional highlighted blonde, but something close, ask for this color. You only need to go in for touch-ups every three to four months.
Use a blue/purple shampoo on your hair once a week to keep the color on the ashy side. Apply a heat protectant before using any tools in order to not compromise the integrity of the blonde hair. This is because it will be sensitive due to the lightening process.
Long blonde hairstyles look great with beach waves and are a low-maintenance color.
#30: Lived-In Golden Blonde Layered Hair
For this color, you’ll want to find yourself a colorist that specializes in blondes. Gone are days of mass foil highlights that deliver an unnatural, stripe-like style. Today, women want a brighter and softer, but natural blonde hair, much like the natural highlights given to a little girl by the sun in summer.
If you not only want a soft and creamy blonde, and grey coverage opt for this long blonde hair. The softer highlights and visible deeper root color leaves a ton of room and time for new growth.
It is important to know that the lighter you want to go, depending on your natural hair color, the longer it may take to achieve this light of a blonde.
If you are susceptible to warmth or yellowing of your blonde over time, try a purple shampoo and conditioner. Davines Alchemic Shampoo and Conditioner is great for long blonde haircuts.
#31: Lived-In Rooted Long Blonde Hair
This is a rooty, lived-in blonde with marshmallow, vanilla, and platinum blonde hair color tones. The subtle shadow root transitions to the bright blonde ends.
If you’re a woman considering hairstyles for long blonde hair make sure you’re prepared for the amount of time it takes to produce this end result. If it’s achievable, you’ll need to maintain your platinum blonde hair with professional products. The proper shampoo, conditioner, treatments, thermal protectants, styling products, and tools protect the integrity of the platinum blonde. It can be costly but is well worth the investment.
#32: Bright & Dimensional Sandy Blonde with Long Hair
This sandy long blonde hair is so soft and natural. It maintains its brightness while still having plenty of dimension. It’s hard to tell if you’re just naturally that blonde or if you’ve had it colored.
This sandy blonde color is for the girl who hates her roots, who wants to be really bright and blonde, but is low maintenance and doesn’t want to be in the salon every six weeks.
The upkeep for this is about every three months. Ask for a mixture of babylights and balayage to achieve brightness. It will also still have the depth and dimension that will let you have a smooth and soft grow out.
#33: Modern Dirty Blonde with Long Hair
It’s also known as a lived-in blonde. Gone are the days where you put 1,000 back to back foils in someone’s head. Now it is all about the placement of the foils, where you put them, and why.
The brighter hairline on this color emphasizes how natural the roots are. It will grow out beautifully for up to the next three months!
If you are an existing heavy foiled blonde lady wanting to change your hair to this type of blonde, you may feel slightly darker, but it will actually look blonder with less maintenance and damage.
#34: Healthy Ash Blonde Long Hair
“This is a healthy ash blonde hair color. It’s not quite platinum hair, but still vibrant and beautiful,” says style creator Kyle James Engman of Pasadena, CA.
“This blonde hair was achieved with very little damage. It will take several processes, but still, your hair will be healthier and blonder than ever,” he adds.
Use a moisturizing cream like Atlantis from R+Co. This can be used as a leave-in or a blow-out cream. Also, do regular at-home Olaplex treatments using no. 3.
The last product is No Yellow purple shampoo from Fanola. As you wash your hair, the toner will fade out, so lather your hair with a purple shampoo at least once a week to help keep those beautiful ashy tones nice and vibrant.
Being such a beautiful, ashy blonde can take a lot of maintenance, says Engman. “It has to be properly taken care of in order to keep it fresh and healthy once you leave the salon.”
#35: Lived-In Center Parted Long Haired Blonde
A lived-in center-parted long-haired blonde gives a high maintenance color more longevity. The ultra modern shadow root doesn’t take away from the stunning brightness of the blonde. In fact, the contrast only brightens up the flawless long blonde tresses. Long blonde haircuts with a center part totally rock this lived-in look.

Follow these three easy steps to wash and style your long blonde hairdo.
1. Apply product to damp hair. Try Big Sexy Hair Core Flex Leave-In Reconstructor on mid-lengths to ends. It’s an amazing hydrating leave-in for processed color, especially blondes. Also, try the Wella EMI Sugar Lift Spray for volume and hold.
2. Rough dry your hair until it is 50% dry. Then, using a nozzle to smooth the cuticle, blow dry your hair section by section, making sure you have enough tension to smooth the hair from the roots to the ends. Blow the hair away from the face to create volume at the roots and/or use a curling iron to create a bend on the ends.
3. Once your blonde hair is completely dry, flip your head upside down and shake it out with your fingers for an effortless style. Use a flexible light-hold hairspray to finish.
