Blonde Hair Inspiration

I posted a few weeks ago about dyeing my hair blonde after our wedding, and so today I wanted to share some of my blonde hair inspiration. For a while it was celebrities’ eyebrows capturing my attention on Instagram, but now I’m lusting after all of the lovely blonde locks I spot in my feed.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

I love Rosie’s look so much more since she has chopped off her blonde hair. I think she looks so much cooler and more striking. I seem to love that kind of just-passed-shoulder length of hair at the moment – as you can see from most of these pictures. I have always got jealous of people with gorgeous long hair and I often still do, but I just love that effortless, cool look of shorter hair and find myself wanting mine that length more and more. Although it does mean that the very regular messy bun will probably have to go, but that’s probably a good thing.

I love the colour of Rosie’s hair too. Lovely and blonde but still quite natural. The other day I saw a big modelling picture in Marks and Spencer of Rosie and her hair there is absolutely how I would like mine. That is, if it would actually suit me and I didn’t have to go outside in wind or rain ever, and probably if I had a stylist to do it for me every day. My mum did mention to me when I said how much I liked it that she is a model (and I’m not) – thanks mum! It’s ok though she made up for it by saying that I am as close to a model as you can get – she’s an imaginative liar my mum.


Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie (once in Neighbours and now quickly on her way to superstardom in films alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith) is so flipping gorgeous it hurts me a little bit. She was always extremely pretty in Neighbours but now she has that polished star quality and perfect hair. I love the all over blonde she has and again the shorter length suits her so much more than longer. I think with such a blonde shade longer hair can quite easily become a bit too Barbie, but shorter it is very cool.

I would love my hair this all over blonde, but I have no idea if it would suit me (I’m guessing not), and so I wouldn’t dare go for it unless I could try a very similar wig on first. Even then I don’t think I would be able to maintain it for long, cost and time-wise. I love it though. Beautiful, a great actress, and she got to snog Leonardo DiCaprio – unfair.

Jessica Alba

I think Jessica is just so gorgeous. She is so naturally and effortlessly beautiful and always looks great. But again I think she looks so much cooler, edgier and striking with her shorter hair. I don’t think this is the best picture of her new hair, but it kind of showed it the clearest. I think this is probably the kind of blonde I should go for – still with plenty of dark roots but definitely blonde. Although I do fancy being a bit more daring than that.

 Sincerely Jules

Julie Sariñana is a style blogger and I love browsing her photos on Instagram. She is super stylish and beautiful, and she also has great hair. She was someone I actually thought suited long hair better after she had cut it shorter, but now I’m used to it I actually prefer it shorter – sorry to say it again but it’s just cooler. Everyone who seems to cut their hair to around shoulder length seems to then grow it out again quite quickly and I always think it’s a shame when it really suits them. Jules is another one who has done this. This is another colour that I think could potentially be right for me, with the dark roots and not too blonde, blonde.

Myleene Klass

I think Myleene is beautiful, and I think she looks sooo much better with shorter hair. I love her hair this length and I even think she looks better with some blonde in her hair; it really suits her. I also really love the way she tends to style it – wavy and messy. It’s how I would love to have mine but I know I wouldn’t end up curling it every day.

I know from having my hair this length before that I would want to have it a bit longer, as I found that at this length it just grows so quickly and then seems to linger at that annoying in-betweeny stage, and I have to get it cut more often that I would like. Also I think it suits me better a bit longer.

I love all of these hairstyles and colours and I am really not sure at the moment which mine will end up most like (if any). I am going to chat to my hairdresser and show him pictures of these ladies and see what he thinks. I will be going on my month long trip around Spain and Portugal shortly after I get my hair done, and so it needs to be relatively low-maintenance, and I still need to be able to put it up in a ponytail. I think some blonde in my hair could be lovely for a month in the sunshine – as long as it suits me! I really don’t fancy hating all of our family photos from our trip.

Who’s hair are you inspired by? Do you like any of these that I have shared as my blonde hair inspiration?

    Margot Robbie is beautiful. I loved her in The Wolf in Wall Street. I like Jessica Alba and Jules’ hair. You can always put your picture in one of those apps to see how you would look with all over blonde. I think it would look great on you.

    Ooh I am in a quandry of that to do with my hair next. I had cut it shoulder length before my daughter was born and now it’s got longer and I cannot decide whether to grow long again or cut it. Loving that pic of Mylene’s hair though. #thelist

    Firstly, I haven’t had a chance before – but congratulations on your marriage :) I think any of those styles would suit you. I have something similar and have my hair a darker, more natural blonde – I don’t really like the yellow look! I bet whatever you decide will look great. Thank you for linking to #PoCoL0 – a great post :) x
