Blondes Have More Fun
BLONDES A FASCINATION
'Sexy,beautiful,dizzy,natural,bleached,dotty,captivating,bleached,wonderful,crazy sensual, alluring.'
Come celebrate with me today into the extraordinary, happy yet sometimes tragic life world of blondes.
Blondes conjure up all kinds of images in our minds. Whether we hate them or love them, the world has a fascination for them. Since sexy blonde stars like Marilyn Munroe , Jean Harlow and Jane Mansfield walked their walk upon this earth, the trail of blonds has always continued. Stemming from these beautiful sex sirens, came the familiar 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes ' phrase. There has been many a bottle of peroxide opened since, in this quest for super 'Blondeness.'
I myself am a blonde, I always have been, and would not have it any other way. I guess that's why I'm dubbed 'The White Russian '. I cannot deny that my hair colour has gained much attention in my life span, and has been the topic of whispers behind closed doors. "Is it real?", they whisper. Bleached or natural seems to be a common point of discussion amongst women from all around the world. If it is real then it is envied , if it is bleached it evokes a reaction, "I told you so," and is therefore 'regarded more favourably' .
As an experiment a few years back I donned a red haired wig and strolled down the streets that I wander as a blonde. I noticed fewer people looked, the attention was noticeably less, it was remarkable. Please don't get me wrong, there are millions of beautiful women, redheads and brunettes who would gain the attention of many in their journeys, but for me, there was a big difference.
'Oh How Fair Thou Blonde Hair Is'
BLONDES THE SUBJECT OF HUMOUR
Our hair colour has given birth to blond jokes all across the world. How many times have you heard red-hair jokes or brunette gags?
'Did all this start with the dizziness of Munroe?'
Three blondes were walking through the forest when they came upon a set of tracks. The first blonde said, "Those are deer tracks."
The second blonde said, "No, those are elk tracks."
The third blonde said, "You're both wrong, those are moose tracks."
The blondes were still arguing when the train hit them.
On the first day of training for parachute jumping, a blonde listened intently to the instructor. He told them to start preparing for landing when they are at 300 feet. The blond asked, "How am I supposed to know when I'm at 300 feet?"
"That's a good question. When you get to 300 feet, you can recognize the faces of people on the ground."
After pondering his answer, she asked, "What happens if there's no one there I know?"
A blonde suspects that her boyfriend is cheating on her, so she goes out and buys a gun.
She goes to his apartment that same day, with the gun in hand. Sure enough, when she opens the door, she finds her boyfriend in the arms of a redhead. She points the gun at her boyfriend at stares him down for a moment. Then, suddenly, she's overcome with grief, so she puts the gun up to the side her head.
Her boyfriend screams, "Honey, don't do it..."
The blonde yells back, "Shut up! You're next!".
BLONDES THE SCIENTIFIC AND GENERAL FACTS
'Blondes have more strands of hair than their darker counterparts'
In my studies through Hairdressing this is what we learnt. I assume they were talking about natural blondes in these scientific studies.Bleached hair if not cared for properly, can become extremely brittle thus causing hair breakage, resulting in reduction of density.
'Between 50 and 60% of woman who visit Hairdressers undergo blonding treatments, which also includes Streaks.
There is a very high percentage of women who through their life span have either considered going blonde or have taken the plunge into blonding their natural tresses.
'There are many shades of blonde ranging from Strawberry Blonde (darker end of the scale), all the way through to Platinum Blonde ( the lightest of all blondes).
So many women who have dyed their hair at home, have been horrified with the results of yellow hair. This mainly happens with inexperience with colours and the lack of knowledge of applying toners.
And furthermore did you know that 65% of all Miss Americas have been blonde.

BLONDES THE TRAGEDIES AND THE TRIUMPHS
I am most certain the world will never forget the beautiful blonde actress Sharon Tate . Sadly, you may also know her as a victim of the infamous "Manson Family". In August 1969, Sharon aged 26, married to prominent movie director, Roman Polanski, and eight and a half months pregnant, was brutally murdered in her home by Manson's evil followers. The tragedy of this senseless murder has always remained in my heart.
'In 1969 the world was shocked with the senseless, barbaric murder of Sharon Tate.'
On a more positive note, let us celebrate the triumph of the 'Barbie Doll '. This dazzling blonde doll was introduced to the world in 1959, and has had enormous success, worldwide, ever since. Barbie has indeed captured the heart of little girls and avid collectors across this mighty planet, and she has become a legend in her own right.
'The Barbie Doll first introduced in 1959 has captured the hearts of little girls worldwide'.
BLONDES THE LEGEND LIVES ON
As we all know there are starlets who reinvented themselves as a Blonde, to achieve their remarkable success.These include Marilyn Munroe, Pamela Anderson, and Christina Aguilera. There are just too many to name.
'Being a Blonde can be a success story or a failure, it simply comes through trial and error. While it works magic for some, it creates pitfalls for others'
Is it not ironic that a woman who once was a smart, intelligent red-head, now a 'Blonde', could now be classified a 'Dumb Blonde', by some who did not know her before-hand. Let's face it there are smart, beautiful, plain,not so smart in all hair colours, simply being a 'Blonde', does not automatically give us a lesser IQ.
The 'Blonde',shall forever multiply across this great Earth, and shall forever captivate, amuse or charm the people that dwell upon it. Let today be our celebration, blondes from all across the universe, as we share this great 'Blonde' day together. Whether we are blonde, dark, a redhead or who knows, the outside is merely a shell, with the substance inside.
