It doesn't take much to understand why blonds are so often the center of a young man's attention. One brief glance at those golden locks, especially when highlighted by a pair of gorgeous blue eyes, and the fluttering heartbeat makes it clear that a blond is something special. And even if a particular blond happens to have green eyes, or hazel or brown or any random shade, she is still a blond with beauty that cannot be denied.

It is a lucky man that catches the eye of a blond!

From an early age, we begin our fascination with blonds. This can even be seen in the fairy tales and children's stories that we love. Who can forget the tale of Goldilocks, so nearly meeting a gruesome fate at the hands... or paws, rather... of that family of three bears? Surely the bears were dazzled by her golden locks! And Goldilocks is only the first of many golden haired fairy tale characters -- Tinkerbell, Cinderella, Rapunzel with golden locks longer than the length of her tower prison... Who can deny the power of these sunshine blonds?

Research has shown that even as an infant, a child will react more positively to a blond caregiver than a brunette or redhead. While it is true that blonds actually come second to the elderly with gray or white hair, we certainly can understand why those would come in first as they would seem the obvious choice to assume a motherly role. But the only reason blonds would consistently beat out the others is a natural predisposition to our infatuation with blonds. Surely there can be no doubt that blonds are the natural beauty queens!

This natural attraction has been common throughout the ages and has resulted in women desiring to become that which is coveted. Roman women would use quicklime, wood ash, and old wine to dye their dark hair blond while Venetian women would do the same using Chamomile and rainwater. Whatever it took, women through the ages have done what was necessary to "go blond." And you can bet that, just as in the modern day, the men of ancient times made no complaints about this golden trend.

As a result of this natural preference, blond hair has long been held in the highest regard. In ancient Greece, blond was the color of the hair of the gods and goddesses. Throughout history, natural blonds have been worshiped for their beauty. In cultures where blonds are among the women of the population, they have been the preferred mates. When introduced to cultures without blond members, they have been viewed on a level with goddesses and desired as everything from life mate to playmate. No culture is immune to the power of the flaxen haired.

Over time, society has come to stereotype not only the traits we attribute to blonds but also the behaviors and personalities that we see in them. Whether this is a vision inside of us or actually a true reflection of those persons has long been open to speculation. In turn, some blonds have capitalized on this image which as a result increases the assumed validity of the image. Fantasy and reality merge to the point where it is impossible to distinguish where to draw the line and every blond becomes the ideal fantasy woman for men and the most dangerous rival for women.

So could this be the secret of why we are so attracted to the fairer haired members of the fairer gender? Do we see in them a precociousness whether real or imagined? Has the unfounded beliefs of our ancestors led us to believe that blonds by their very nature are naughty? Are dark haired women right to guard their men carefully when a blond enters the room? Are men really that shallow? Well, in a word, yes, but there can be much enjoyment in that shallowness.

As an example of our never ending prejudice in favor of blonds, take a look at these two photos of actress Kristen Stewart, well known as the dark haired heroine Bella of the Twilight film series. How many of us who have barely glanced at her with her dark hair will now bask in her blondness asking ourselves how we ever missed this beauty? Do we question whether or not she is naturally blond? When she portrayed Joan Jett in The Runaways right down to her jet black hair, did we even notice lovely Kristen? But the fact is she is now blond at this moment and this moment can be all that matters in the fantasy world we create.

Because of this radiance that we see in all blonds, man has for centuries tried to capture that beauty in photographs, in paintings, in poetry, and in sculpture. Is it any wonder that Barbie, the most popular doll of all time, is a blond? Could it be that her outrageously impossible body shape is the result of fantasy gone awry? Artists, such as those who created Barbie, have tried to capture the essence of blondness but so far have failed. Still, we do enjoy the attempts.

When it comes right down to it, many of us probably have numerous misconceptions about blonds. These errors may be caused by stereotypical descriptions we have encountered or wishful thinking on the part of those who find blonds attractive. And it is only exacerbated by a media ready to jump on any story without checking the facts.

In January 2010, the Sunday Times of London published an article that reported research had shown blonds were stand-offish ice queens used to getting their way from being born winners in the genetic lottery. This article was republished globally in a matter of days. But the truth was the research did not focus on blonds but on attractive people and was only focused on whether or not this group angered more quickly than others. The way this story was distorted shows how easily the media equates attractive with being blond.

Once these myths are created, they can be hard to get rid of. In 2002 the BBC erroneously reported that, due to their "recessive alleles", the last blond would disappear around the year 2200. Eventually the New York Times debunked the story, but even as late as four years later it was popping back up, again in London's Sunday Times. Perhaps some brunettes were just wishing for a permanent solution to stop their men from looking at blonds.

With all the stories and beliefs surrounding blonds and all the assumptions we routinely make, it is almost as if blonds are mythical creatures. But most of these myths are simply not true. Certainly there are some "dumb blonds" out there, but in no greater proportion than with any other hair color. Common sense should tell us that hair color has nothing to do with intelligence level.

Women who are blond become authors. Harry Potter's J.K. Rowling comes to mind. They become world renowned doctors -- and not just the physician type of doctor -- like noted archaeologist Dr. Lucy Hale (not to be confused with the actress who is neither blond or a doctor). They become news anchors (Katie Couric), journalists (Barbra Waters) and talk show hosts (Meredith Vieira).

Some blonds, whether you agree or disagree with them, become political commentators like Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham. And, of course, respected attorneys and politicians like former Senator, former Presidential candidate, and former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. You may disagree with their politics but you cannot deny their intelligence or their accomplishments.

And while there might be some male fantasy where the girl of their dreams truly is the stereotypical "dumb blond", aren't those of us who desire more from life than a pretty face glad that there is more to most blonds than meets the eye? Would you really want to spend your life, or even a date, having to explain everything over and over to someone who just does not get it no matter how well you explain it? The beauty of blonds is that the so-called dumb blond is a the true rarity with most blonds being able to more than hold their own in a conversation.

While there may be some benefit to finding a blond who fits the undeserved common caricature (i.e. easy to talk into anything), in the long run, you can not expect a fulfilling relationship, or indeed even a fulfilling encounter, with one so lacking in depth. So next time you are looking for a blond, do yourself a favor and find one you can actually strike up a conversation with.

While it is true this will likely take a bit more work, you may be surprised to find it is well worth the effort. But keep in mind the effort does not end there. Once you find such a blond, you must be sure you do not treat her like the stereotypical blond. Remember, she is a person... just an incredibly lovely, totally hot, intelligent person.

Still do not think it is possible for a blond to be both intelligent and sexy? Consider this... One of the ladies at the right is an attorney and another is a physician. Can you guess which is which? I didn't think so!

A few "blond facts"...

  • Estimates of how many people worldwide have natural blond hair range from 2% - 5%. In the United States the percentage is around 15%. Sweden has the highest percentage at around 50%.

  • Artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo portrayed Cleopatra as blond in his paintings and William Shakespeare referred to her as "tawny". Historically, there is is little evidence as to what hair color or skin tone she had.

  • "Blonde" refers to a blond female while "blond" can refer to a female but also refers to a male, the hair color itself, or any other meaning the word may have. "Blonde" is considered sexist by many and its use is declining.

After all those hot ladies in sexy swimwear, maybe you better cool your engines before you go with this gorgeous blond's cool blue eyes!

If we have learned anything while enjoying these beautiful ladies it is that each person is an individual and you cannot judge them based on appearance. The images in this hub includes models, waitresses, teachers, actresses, lawyers and more. Some are very smart. Some may not be so bright. They are all incredibly gorgeous blonds. And they are all incredible individuals.
