If you're a girl, you're a blonde. If you're a guy, your a blond. Please don't take this personally, but it's gender-specific. The "e" at the end indicates the hair color is that of a woman, without the "e," it's the hair of a man. This happens with a few words imported from French. I can think of one other example: A woman engaged to be married is a fiancee, a man engaged to be married is a fiance.
Women get the extra "e." In Hollywood terms, Marilyn Monroe was a blonde, and Peter Graves was a blond.
Or, if I'm wrong, maybe I'm having a blond moment!
