    Why are blondes still considered to be the feminine ideal prototype of beauty in American society?

    I am not that statement is true anymore. I think that most men prefer brunettes, however with so many colours on the market, a lot of woman have at least tried to go blonde a few times to put to test that experiment. I myself have not. I am not a fan of blonde hair.

    I think like any other superstition that started long ago, it just passes through decades.
    What would be interesting is to ask blondes if they had more fun, lol or just men to answer and see what kind of statements you get.

    I think it all boils down to the personality that comes with the hair.

    My question is 'Why does just about every woman in Western Society feel the need to dye their hair?"   Are they ashamed of what Nature gave them?   And, of course, so many dye their hair blonde at one time or another.  The giveaway is that blonde girls never have brown eyes.   Taken a look next time you're out and about at how many brown or dark-eyed girls are blonde.   

    Take a look at the pride some of our not white people take in their hair; all manner of hair-styles and nearly all very attractive.   Why not simply go with what Mother Nature presented us with and leave it at that?

    Is there not a common myth that blond girls are not all that smart? Perhaps men are happy with such women and that's how treating blonds as ideal beauty came into existence?!

    The feminine ideal prototype as a blonde was created by Hollywood in 1920-'s 1940's.  America is losing its 'blondness', thus we are losing this ideal image.  Actually, judging by Miss American winners, your question perpetuates a myth - Brunettes are almost twice as likely to win the Miss America title as blondes. There have been 44 brunette winners, 20 blondes, 1 redhead and 3 with auburn hair.  So blondes are really the ideal and beauty is STILL in the eye of the beholder.
