English term or phrase:lithe youthfulness
She had thick, short hair of iridescent blonde and exuded a lithe youthfulness.
I know the meaning of lithe as "sthg that can bend or flexible"...how do we translate it in this context.
Explanation: This is a description of her (youthful) personality, essentially meaning that she doesn't have the stubbornness that often comes with age, but is flexible and able to adapt to any situation.
