Is It True That Blondes Really Do Have More Fun?

BlondeWhen Kim Kardashian decided to dye her hair blonde after the birth of her first child, my eye caught a survey about the differences between blondes and brunettes.

All blonde jokes aside, Rose-Marie Jarvis of Goody hair conducted a survey of over 3000 participants and found that blondes engage in their beauty routines an average of 72 minutes a day, six minutes longer than brunettes. This means blondes spend 22 days a year getting ready, compared to 19 days for those lagging behind brunettes. It appears that blondes have to work harder to get that same light hair shine as brunettes already possess. And all that time spent on getting ready seems to make blondes feel more confident, leading to more fun![1]

Now, you know why the blonde woman in your life, the blonde dorm roommate or friend is making you late!

The survey also found that blonde men tend to like blond women, and brunette men prefer brunette women. When it comes to attraction in terms of hair color, like attracts like.

It’s also true that if you hung around a certain hair color type growing up and had good experiences with that hair type, you will be attracted to that hair color as an adult.  And say, the blonde bully picked on you in middle school, you probably won’t be attracted to that blonde drummer in the band. It’s too much of a reminder.

Like attracts like, but here is where the differences come in to play. When brunettes first meet other people, they are perceived as being smarter than blondes (Think of all the dumb blonde jokes). Furthermore, men, in London, are more attracted to brunettes. If you are thinking, this is just not fair, go ahead and die your hair blonde and move to another country.

The researchers also found that blondes go on more dates and feel more confident and youthful. Overall, blondes are perceived to be more attractive and even do better at getting tips as waitresses. [2

Hmmmmm…….Blondes just might have more fun, or least get better tips!
