Top 50 Best Blonde Actresses Of All Time [2023]

AishwaryaAishwarya-Updated Jan 4, 2023


Blonde Actresses

 

It is said that blondes have all the fun. But then again, they also say blondes are dumb.

 

I endorse neither of these opinions, yet I can see the difference in perspective toward blonde and non-blonde actresses.

 

While some actresses bleach their hair to enjoy the status of a blonde, others dye them to escape the tags associated with blondes.

 

Norma Jeane Mortenson bleached her hair and turned blonde for life to become Marilyn Monroe.

 

She felt that people preferred blondes, and hence to get more modeling chances, she turned a blonde.

 

In contrast, other actresses like Bella Thorne, Amy Adams, Emma Stone, etc., colored their blonde locks for film roles and stuck with the look.

 

The world of blonde hair is not simple either. There are different shades of blonde, ranging from platinum blonde baby blonde to strawberry blonde, honey blonde, golden blonde, and more.

 

Some shades of blonde look more brown, while others look more yellow/golden. Whichever shade you pick, you cannot escape a blonde when she enters the screen.

 

That is the power of blonde beauties. Hence, ENTOIN has decided to curate a list of naturally blonde actresses.

 

They have captured our attention and maintained it over the years with their talent, personality, appearance, and allure.

 

I will have to warn you that I have excluded celebrities who have dyed their hair blonde and those who are more famous for their non-blonde look.

 

So, with that out of the way, let me start with the list of 50 best blonde actresses.
