1. Blonde chin-length bob

Chin-length hairstyles have been around for decades, and they are not going away. If you’re trying out short hair for the first time, a chin-length bob is an excellent start. With blonde hair color, your bob might look flat, so create a deep side part to make your hair look bouncy.

Editor’s tip: Fight damage caused by bleaching by applying TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask weekly. This hair product helps replenish lost moisture and revive damaged locks so your hair goes back to its healthy state.

2 Blonde pixie cut

Want to look edgy? Try a blonde pixie cut. With short blonde hair like this, you might end up looking plain and pale. Balance out the light color with well-defined eyebrows and eyes (hello, eyeliner and eye shadow!). You can also accessorize with big earrings.

Even if your hair is short, follow a hair care routine so your tresses remain healthy. Keep it well-moisturized and get regular trims to maintain your hair’s good shape.

3. Blonde bob with bangs

Add oomph to a simple bob by getting bangs. Blunt bangs can make you look high-fashioned. They can be high maintenance, though. You always have to blow dry it and style it, but the effort is worth it. You can also pair your blonde bob with wispy bangs for a more casual look.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair color vibrant by switching to Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner. This hair product also keeps your hair from getting dry and dull—a common problem seen on dyed tresses.

4. Layered bob

If you have thick hair, getting layers can help distribute the volume. A textured hairstyle is also easier to create when you have a layered haircut. This ‘do is perfect for second-day hair. Come to work looking chic, and no one will notice that you skipped washing your hair that morning.

Editor’s tip: Nail textured and tousled hairstyles by spritzing TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray on your hair. Scrunch your tresses to evenly distribute the product throughout your hair.

5. Pixie cut with long bangs

Don’t want to dye your entire hair blonde? You can keep your natural hair color, but color your long bangs blonde. This two-toned hair adds a playful touch to your ‘do. Try medium to dark blonde shades for your bangs for a seamless transition from your naturally dark tresses.

Editor’s tip: Style your long bangs with the help of TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax. This is useful for making quiffs and side-swept long bangs.
