If you're a girl with straight blonde hair, you know this leads to two possible outcomes. First, even though your color is dazzling, when you've put off getting a haircut, your locks can end up looking a bit lifeless -- so not hot. Second, when you take the time to head to the stylist, your hair shapes up with great ease into a beautiful, sexy 'do. If you're looking for a new style that will bring you from blah to va-va-voom, gain inspiration from a few new looks and go for the one that speaks to your style.
This look is akin to a super-cropped bob, but it's not as short as a classic pixie. Visualize your hair cut just beneath your earlobes and softly layered throughout. Instead of long, sweeping bangs, imagine wispy fringe that reaches just past your eyebrows -- a grown-out pixie look. Your straight blonde hair is perfect for this sexy, schoolgirl-chic look. Unlike dark hair that can look one-dimensional, it's easy to see all of the tones within your hair color, so you end up with tons of dimension, too. Oh, and your straight texture means it'll hang just right for easy maintenance.
One-Length Hair With Full Fringe
Don't let this powerful look scare you -- your blonde color will allow this heavy look to appear light as a feather. Ask your stylist to trim your ends without creating any layers -- you want a blunt, one-length look for intense contrast with your bangs. For the fringe, opt for long, thick bangs that angle downward at the sides -- you can wear them straight across or sweep them to the side. And since they're angled, as they grow out, they'll blend into the rest of your locks. Stunning.
Lightly Layered Ends
Long blonde tresses immediately conjure up images of the sexiest of stars. Think Brigitte Bardot style -- this '60s-inspired look is ultra-feminine and follows the au courant look which favors zero to light layering in place of the heavy layers most women have grown accustomed to. For a sexy-meets-girl-next-door look, ask your stylist for lightly layered ends, so that your hair is essentially one length with feature-softening, framing layers built in.
Long Feathered Bob
You've probably gone with the classic, straight-across-the-bottom bob before -- the idea of going back to a lack of bangs and one blunt length probably doesn't peak your interest too much. Go for a feathered bob instead. Your stylist will cut your hair so that it swings just above your shoulders with super-feathered ends and feathered, side-swept bangs. When light hair is feathered, the technique creates tons of movement in the tresses that are otherwise known to occasionally fall flat. Oh, and the whole elegant neck and soft fringe thing -- always sexy.
