If you are looking for a daring look, then you should go for a blonde buzz cut. Blonde buzz cuts are among the most striking and edgy hairstyles that you can opt for because they will make your head look like a work of art.
Combining a buzzcut with blonde hair (natural or bleached )is a very daring look, and in this article, we will talk about the different blonde buzzcut styles you can go for.
What is the buzz cut?
The buzz cut is a very short haircut that has even length all over the head. But not all buzz cut variations have the same length all over. Certain styles like the crew cut, flat top, and marine cut have different lengths on the top and sides.
Crew cut: The crew cut is the most common form of a buzz cut. In this type of cut, the hair on the top of the head is considerably longer than on the sides and back.
Burr Cut: This is another common type of buzz cut. In this variation, all hair is trimmed with a number 1 or 2 guard to a uniform length, which is a bit longer than a classic buzz cut.
Induction Cut: This is the classic buzz cut where all the hair is cut very short and even.
Of course, there are other variations, but the crew cut, the burr cut, and the induction cut are the most common ones.

Faded blonde buzzcuts
If you choose to go for either the burr or the crew cut, the chances are that you will fade your hair as well.
The fade is a technique where the hair on the sides of your head is gradually faded to a shorter length as you go lower towards your neck.
There are 3 main types of fade haircuts:
The high blonde fade: In a high blond fade, the transition from the long hair to the shorter hair on the sides is very sharp and steep. This means that your fade will be close to the level of your temples.
The low blonde fade: In a low blond fade, the transition from the long hair to the shorter hair on the sides happens half-inch above your ear.
Mid-blonde fade: Finally, the mid-blonde fade is a fade that the transition between the long hair to the shorter hair somewhere in between the high blond fade and the low blond fade.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to choosing a fade. All you need to do is choose the one that will suit your style and personal preferences. So play around with different blonde fades to find the best one for you.

Blonde Buzzcuts and Skin Tone
The most impressive buzzcuts are when you combine blonde hair with dark skin. This happens because the contrast between the darker skin and the blonde hair is very edgy and daring.
In order to get this look, you need to bleach your hair to a very light blonde color and then style it into a buzz cut. If you decide to go with this look, get ready to turn heads because this is a very striking look.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t go for a blonde buzz cut if you have a light skin tone. It is just that there will be no contrast between your skin and your hair color.
How to Choose the right blonde buzzcut for you
Many guys find it very difficult to choose the right style buzz cut, but don’t worry because this is what we will talk about in this section. We are going to talk about some buzzcut styles and how to choose the right one for you.
Induction Blonde Buzz Cut
This is the classic buzz cut that has even length all over the head. It is very short, and to achieve this look, you need to trim your head with a hair clipper with no guard on.
This haircut is for guys that don’t like spending a lot of time grooming. All you have to do to maintain this haircut is to trim your head with a hair clipper every few days.
Another category of guys that should try the induction blonde buzz cut is those with a receding hairline. There is not much to do if you have a receding hairline, but if you can somehow camouflage it with a blonde buzz cut, then why not do it?
This works better if you have light skin because the contrast between your short blonde hair and your light skin will make your receding hairline less evident. If you have a dark skin tone, this look will only make it more evident, so don’t try it.

Burr Blonde Buzz Cut
This is a variant of the induction cut that is a bit longer.
To get this look, you need to grow your hair for about one week and then trim it with a clipper with a number 1 or 2 guard.
The Burr cut is also perfect for men that don’t like to spend too much time grooming. All you have to do is trim your head about once a week with a hair clipper and maintain the same length all over the head.
The Blonde Butch Cut
This is a longer variant of the burr blonde buzz cut. The only difference between this look and the burr cut is the length. You must trim your hair with a clipper with a number 3 guard on to achieve this look.
This hairstyle is perfect for men that want to keep their hair short but don’t like the skin faded look. All you need to do to maintain this haircut is trim your head with a clipper with a number 3 guard on every week. It is a neutral look, and it goes well with any face shape and skin tone.
The Blonde Brush Buzz Cut
This is the longest blonde buzz cut. The only difference between this haircut and the other two is the length. For this style, you need to trim your hair with a clipper with a number 4 guard on.
This look is perfect for men that want to keep their hair short but don’t like too much skin on the show or have a scar they want to conceal.
This blonde brush buzz cut will also make your head look fuller and thicker, which is perfect for men that have thin hair. All you need to do to maintain this cut is trim your hair with a hair clipper with a number 4 guard every week.
This look will work with any face shape and skin tone, so feel free to try it out.
The Blonde Crew Cut
The blonde crew cut is different from the other blonde buzz cuts we talked about because the hair is not evenly cut all over the head. The difference between this look and other styles is that the hair is longer on the top.
This style is perfect for men that have thick hair because it will make their hair appear even fuller.
To get this look, you probably need to visit a barber and get your head professionally trimmed because it is not as simple as just trimming your head with a clipper. A barber can give you a symmetrical look by fading the sides and back of your head.
The Blonde Ivy League
The blonde ivy league is a longer version of the crew cut. This haircut is perfect for men that don’t like very short haircuts and want to try something fun with their hair.
The blonde ivy league will make your face appear more angular and sharper, which is perfect for men that have chubby faces.
To get this look, you need to cut the top of your head with a number 8 guard and fade the sides.
If you are not a professional, then I suggest visiting the barber because this cut is very intricate, and if done incorrectly, it can make your haircut look sloppy.
The blonde flat-top buzz cut
The blonde flat-top buzz cut is very unique and perfect for men who want to stand out.
On the top, the hair is standing straight up and cut flat, just like a deck. On the sides, a high fade makes the contrast between the top and sides very obvious.
This haircut is not low maintenance and is perfect for men who want to look stylish and rebellious. If you have dark skin, it will be even more eye-catching.
Blonde High and Tight
The high and tight is a variant of the crew cut and is another cool blonde buzz cut.
As mentioned, this is a crew cut variation where the hair on top is at least 2 guards longer than the hair on the sides. But the main difference between this cut and the classic crew cut is that there is no fade on the sides; it’s all one length, making the transition from short to long very sharp.
If you want a stylish haircut that will get heads turning, then this is the haircut for you. The high and tight can be done at home as it doesn’t require any fading, and the only equipment you need is a hair clipper.
Shades of Blonde Buzz Cuts
If you are not a natural blonde but considering going blonde, you might wonder which shade of blonde will suit you best.
Here are the three main shades that you can go for:
Platinum Blonde – This is the most popular blonde shade. It is the lightest blonde there is and is very eye-catching. A platinum blonde buzz cut will make you look younger and more vibrant.
Ash Blonde – This is another light blonde shade that is slightly darker than the Platinum Blonde buzz cut. It has a greyish undertone and will make you appear more mature.
If you have dark skin, this is a perfect blonde shade for you because it won’t look too stark against your skin tone.
Bleached Blonde – While bleach blonde is not a natural shade, this one is very popular among men. This hair color is almost pure white, and it will make you look like an angel, a model, or Eminem if done correctly.
To achieve the blonde buzz cut, all you have to do is bleach your hair. And while this look is perfect for men with pale skin and light eyes, it also looks good on men with darker skin who want to stand out from the crowd. If done correctly, this color can look stylish and modern, but consult your barber before you go ahead with it.
