Phrasing a sentence...

'I have short, blond hair...'
How is this phrased (where does the adjective go?)

1. 'J'ai les cheveux blonds et courts...'
2. It goes AFTER the noun in this case.

Look carefully at the way it is phrased in French. Instead of 'blonds, courts' it will actually be: 'blonds et courts' to create the same meaning the comma does in English.

3. Whenever there's a comma... use 'et' and place adjectives AFTER the noun.

What do you do when there is a comma of two adjectives, in a phrase like this?
