Who can be a blonde- girl or boy?
Let us plumb the mysteries of the words Blond and Blonde.

  • a man with hair that is pale gold in color
  1. A blond seems very odd.
  2. Most of her sons are blond.

Blonde (N/Adj.)
  • a woman or girl having gold pale hair and usually fair skin

What Oxford says
In British English it is usual to spell this word blonde when writing about a woman or girl and blond when writing about a man or boy, although the spelling blonde is sometimes used for men and boys too. In American English the spelling blond is often preferred for either sex. Blonde may be used to describe a woman's hair, but it is sometimes considered offensive to refer to a woman as 'a blonde' because hair colour is not a whole person.

Mind Trick
As a Noun the word Blonde with an extra e refer to a girl or woman, you can connect the word easily with female as the word female has also an extra e as the word blonde has.

In a nutshell
A blond is a fair-haired man and a blonde is a fair-haired woman. But as an adjective blond can be used for either sex, such as a blond girl, a blond boy.
