blonde′ness, n.
usage: blonde is still widely used for the noun specifying a woman or girl with fair hair. Some people regard this as sexist, preferring blond for all persons. blond is the usual spelling for the adjective referring to either sex (an energetic blond girl; two blond sons) or describing hair, complexion, etc. blonde is still occasionally applied to a female (the blonde model and her escort) and in British English is the preferred spelling for all senses of the adjective.
