Blondes vs Brunettes vs Redheads
You knew it was coming. it wouldn't be long until I had to bring up one of the most controversial questions since the beginning of time. Who is better Blonde's, redheads or brunettes. Being a woman I obviously know that that hair color does not make one better. However men and society has dictated otherwise. When researching this topic I found many many articles debating this same question, As always let's explore!
Lets take a look at the myths and stereotypes about each type of gal.
Blondes per say are supposed to be dumb. You don't hear the phrase Brunette or redhead joke do you? Blondes are also supposed to be more fun!. The "dumb" stereotype can be blamed on the the movie starlets of yesteryear. Many who played the part of a not so smart gal with bleach blonde hair. Classic blonde? Marylin Monroe!
Brunettes are naturally smart and dependable. The are also very sophisticated!
Redheads have a feisty temper and are very alluring to men. As stated in one of the articles I read " red stands for passion and when a man sees a woman with red hair he thinks he has met someone who gets to the point and won't mess around when it comes to sex."
An article published in Mail Online in August of 2006 states redheads have more sex and more sexual partners than blondes or brunettes. This information was complied by a doctor in Germany who studied 100 German women. It further states a woman who dyes her hair read is stating she ready to find a mate or that she is unhappy in her relationship. ( scary, because I have been contemplating dying my hair reddish)
Garnier Nutrisse ( yes the hair people) did a study on woman's hair color and came up with some surprising results. Brunettes were found th be more fun than the blonde's and redheads. This study also indicates Brunettes are more successful in the workplace and in the bedroom ( You go Brunettes!!) Of the 6000 people surveyed it was determined that Brunettes are most likely going to make between 60,000 and 80,000 a year. Study indicated that 71% would prefer a brunette for a long term relationship ( well duh if she makes 60 thou she's akeeper!). 81% felt that brunettes were most genuine and 71% felt they were the least moody. This study concludes that the brown hair goes with confidence and self awareness. 3000 men that participated in this poll stated brunettes wer down to earth and they were more likely to settle down with one than compared to their counterparts
The study completed by Garnier Nutrisse suggested that men found blondes to be fun and better girlfriends ( even though they settled down with a brunette) Another poll I found of 80 men surveyed 55% preferred blondes. Along with the blonde hair men also preferred blue eyes. The author of this poll suggested that men were equating blonde hair and blue eyes to youth!
I ran into some statistics on what people prefer. On Bzoink.com 44270 people cast their vote and brunettes won! The got 26411 votes.(60%) They were followed in by the blondes and the redheads placed third.
I got to thinking about how else we can measure the popularity of hair color. Miss America came to mind. Out of the last ten years there were only three blondes crowned Ms America! The other seven were all brunette. No redheads.. sorry gals. Also for fun I peeked in a the Barbie website.. you know the dolls. There were very few Barbie dolls that were NOT blonde.
What Guys think about Blondes vs Redheads vs Brunette
What women had to say
While reading articles I read quite a few comments and found several redheaded women state the more intellectual man goes for the redhead. One woman stated being a redhead gave her the best of both worlds. She could boast the sexy glamour image of the blonde and still be thought of as intelligent like a brunette! Another woman discusses her male friend marrying a brunette. She states she thinks it is a measure of a great guy!
So who is the best? The best at what? When it comes down to it hair color shouldn't really matter. Society has given us some stereotypes and it is up to all of us red heads, brunettes and blondes go against the grain.
You knew I would ask
Do you prefer
As of July 2013, Redheads have a definite lead! Lets wait to see if another hair color becomes more popular as time goes on.
