Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

 Stella: Do blondes really have more fun? I was wondering this as I sit here and schedule my hair appointment to go back to being blonde. As I mentioned previously, I've had dark hair for over a year now. And this year has not been much fun... Could there be a correlation between the lack of excitement in my life and my hair color? I decided to do a little research to find out the truth! Hah.Okay, here are a few facts that I found.

Match.com reports that women who have blonde hair in their profile pictures get twice as much attention from the gentlemen emailers using the service. In fact, while golden-haired gals averaged 14 flirtatious messages, redheads averaged 11 and brunettes got a measly 9. What's up with that? So if I am ever desperate enough to try online dating I will most defintely need blonde hair...

However, other research shows that brunettes are more sought out after as wives. Dang it! Are all blondes just thought of as sluts? Do men really not take them seriously because of their hair color and think only brunettes can make good wives? Take the movie "Legally Blonde" when he's dumping her for being too blonde.. He says, "If I want to be elected senator by the time I'm 30, I need to marry a Jackie, not a Marilyn!" (Although didn't the Pres cheat on Jackie with Marilyn???)

What else? Blondes are definitely viewed as less intelligent than brunettes. Brunettes tend to make more money on average than blonde women do. And of course, everyone knows a good 'dumb blonde' joke. But other research shows that blondes are more confident and outgoing! Which equals more fun!

And just for fun, 46 percent of all centerfolds are blondes. Their average age: 22. Average weight: 115 pounds. Average height: 5-foot-6. Gee, guess I missed my chance. 4 years ago or 50 lbs ago whichever. Also, I read that blondes tend to get bit more by mosquitos. Strange...

In conclusion, I don't know if I personally think blondes have more fun. But at least Rod Stewart does.

Loki: Ha. You are funny. So you are for sure going back to blonde? I've always wondered what I would look like if I went straight blonde. You know, just for the fun of it. I don't really think BLONDES have more fun. Maybe you get more clicks on match.com or guys might think you are an easier lay because of your blonde hair ,but that is just silly. Maybe you should define "fun." I think it's fun to change it up every now and then. I highlighted my hair all sorts of colors for 10 years... you know blonde, red, purple, ect.. and I just got tired of the upkeep. Plus, I was never good about going back when I should so I always had roots showing my natural color. I've been au-natural for a few years, and I think I am sticking to it. Sure, I get the urge to just dye my hair red... Just to see. I keep saying when I lose the rest of this weight that I am going to follow it up with a good hair chopping and some sexy coloring. All I know is that Edward prefers brunettes! Hooray! It's the first time being brunette was mentioned as a superior color... Also I think Megan Fox and her dark locks helped too.


Which COLOR do you prefer?

    Well, I will say that I prefer brunette. At least on me. I see a lot of beautiful women w/ all hair colors...but I usually think the dark hair is more striking. Then I look in the mirror and I know this to be true! HA HA HA HA You know I'm kidding right? I have the ugliest hair I've ever had! I despise my hair right now. Not the color so much but the cut. Or lack thereof! I need a hair cut so badly. I just don't like appointments! So, I just ponytail it a lot lately.

  5. I have to comment. I do love being a blonde...well kinda greyish/white now. But did always think brunettes were smarter..but I didn't care as I was having too much fun being me! I am short too..but that never seemed to be a problem either since I never aspired to be a model...all in all things have worked out quite well. And Couger, go see Linda who for sure can give you a new cut/style. She did for me and I love it. Much more suits my personality than the straight style did. Whatever makes you feel good, go for it. Coloring or cutting. We women like change.
