Blond or blonde?
 
Hello everyone! I have a question for you. I īm not sure about when to use "blond" and when "blonde". I īve checked the dictionary and it says that the problem resides on gender. The first one is supposed to be used for male and the second one for female. Is that right? If so, should I say...?
 
- She īs blonde
- He īs blond
 
and what sounds better?
 
- She īs got blonde hair (or) she īs got fair hair
- He īs got blond hair (or) he īs got fair hair
 
 
 
Thank you very much!
