Blondschopf, Blondchen


Explanation:
Some context would help with this one - who does it refer to?
If it is a child, both the above would work even though I'd probably use something like "kleiner Blondschopf". If it is a woman, "Blondchen" is probably more common, even though I find it rather offensive and sexist. Blondschopf would probably work here as well, or, as suggested above, simply go for "Blonde", which has fewer "childlike" connotations.

Blondie


Explanation:
I would even suggest leaving it as is since it sounds like a name, especially if it's referring to Blondie, e.g. of Blondie Bumstead, wife of Dagwood Bumstead, in the TV series and movies "Blondie", or Blondie AKA Debbie Harry, the singer.

Cheerio,
Dierk
