- Kudos to Merriam-Webster for being one of the only online dictionaries to indicate the distinction between “blonde” and “blond”;
- “Blond” comes from French, in which it has masculine and feminine forms;
- Will you be ridiculed if you don’t use “blonde” and “blond” in their gender-specific forms? Probably not. Is it cool to know the difference? Definitely.

I legit did not know this. I thought it was like “gray” and “grey”, different people spelling it differently and whatnot.
