Black girls with blonde hair have more fun. Contrary to some public opinion, black ladies and women of all shapes and sizes can wear blonde hair. From the darkest skinned to the lightest skinned black woman, there’s a blonde shade out there that would rock.
Since most black ladies have naturally dark hair, there might be some concerns about going blonde and damaging your hair. But to rock most of these styles, you don’t need to dye your hair blonde. Thankfully, there are weaves and wigs in nearly every hair texture so you can always find one that suits you.
But if you decide to take the plunge by dying your hair or your weave, we’d first recommend having it done by a professional. Otherwise, there are lots of tutorials you can watch on getting different shades of blonde.
Lovely Blonde Hair Ideas for Black Girls
If you still think blonde black girls don’t bode well, let’s show you otherwise with these images of blonde hairstyles for black girls.
1. Brown, Shiny Two-Toned Blonde
There’s a blonde shade for every black girl, like this brown-blonde two-toned shade. This particular style can act as a safety net for ladies who are worried about taking the full plunge and going totally blonde.
But if you choose to rock this without the brown bits, you would totally kill it. In this case, a lace front was used to ensure total evenness in all parts of the hair, so if you are worried about dying your hair blonde, there’s no need to fret because you don’t have to.
The balayage is quite similar to the ombre, but rather than dying only the lower parts a lighter color, the balayage includes tiny strands of hair from different lengths to create some dimension and body.
From afar it looks quite like an ombre hair but up close it is different from the conventional. This black girl’s blonde hairstyle can also be achieved using a lace front that can be made into a wig for your own convenience.
3. Soft Blonde Long Beach Waves
This blonde beauty was achieved by playing with highlights. The blonde parts are one and two shades lighter than the brown parts, giving it a soft waterfall appearance. This is suitable for the ladies who want the blonde look without having it appear too loud.
Under certain lights, this might appear brown or blonde. And it’s suitable for women who generally like to play it safe or work in situations where their choice of hair has to be kept modest. This blonde black girl look does all that without undermining your beauty.
Not all aspiring black girls want to try long blonde hair, and we get that. For the sisters who prefer teeny weeny afros, shaven cuts and other hairstyles on the low side, this clipper-styled short blonde haircut is both edgy and charming.
Of course, you can try this out with darker shades; it all boils down to what you like and what suits your face.
5. Blonde Bob with Side Part
The long angled bob cut from the 90s has been making its way back onto our heads with a more stylish flair this time. The combination of the waves, the length, and degree to which this hair is angled plays nicely on the face.
If you’re a black girl with blonde hair and a chubby face trying to make your face appear slimmer, this blonde bob hairstyle creates sharp angles on the face and hides away some features, making your face appear slimmer.
In order to maintain this look, you would need a good knowledge of how flat and curling irons work, in order to be able to maintain this look every day.
6. Honey Blonde Ombre Bob
The honey/ golden blonde shade is often the safest yet vibrant go-to blonde hairdo for black girls of all shades. And this middle part curly hair can be achieved on your natural hair without as much damage as one that could be gotten from going platinum blonde.
These curls are also doable on natural hair and may not require a lace front/closure. A simple flexirod set, braid outs or bantu knot outs can create these same curls. But for ladies without natural hair, a curly weave should do the trick.
7. Platinum Blonde Bob on Dark Skin
There’s this myth that only fairer black girls can wear this shade of blonde, but that’s all it is—a myth. This platinum blonde, despite being nearly too light, looks great on very dark skin tone.
It could be the beautiful contrast of light against dark, but we do know that it looks great and you should certainly try it. This was also achieved using a lace frontal with no defined parts.
8. Long Loose Curls
Oh, look! It’s a carefree black girl with blonde hair, wearing it confidently like she owns the world. This long curly blonde hair weave is perfect for summer when you can let your hair loose while having fun under the sun. Once again, you don’t have to risk hair damage by dying your hair this color, just make use of some weaves.
For this, a lace closure was used but you could opt for a lace frontal or a 360-degree lace frontal if you want to be able to pack it up into a bun or ponytail when the weather gets blazing.
If you’d rather not use a weave and don’t mind taking the risk of going a very light shade of blonde, then that’s fine. Life is too short to have boring hair anyway. This blonde natural hair is an edgy and eccentric look which any aspiring blonde haired black girl can try.
In order to prevent damage, make sure to deep condition your hair before dying it. You’d also need to do a protein treatment to maintain the strength of your hair. Also, stack up on all things/products that moisturize your hair.
Blonde looks great on short black hair too like this tapered cut with bangs. This soft brownish shade accentuates well with the brown skin color, making it appear nude-ish. If you love soft and understated looks that still flatter your features, you should try this for your next blonde ambition.
11. Legally Beige Blonde
This black girl’s blonde hair with brown roots gives the illusion of a natural blonde. To get this long and natural-looking blonde hair, you need to use a lace frontal. Lace frontals make the hairline appear to be growing out of your scalp.
