But in most parts of southern Europe not even children have light hair. All you need to do is pass by schoolyards. In Northern Italy it is different, but than again, those people there are a mix of Italians, Germanic and Celtic ancestries, not unlike the northern half of France.

And even those few people that do have blond hair, they are not the Dutch type of blond and people in general.

Anyway, returning to the topic, the very fact that there are hardly any real blond people makes many people, mostly women, dye their hair blond or red. They just want to set themselves apart, thinking blond makes them more interesting. But often they look odd with blond hair, especially as they get older. It's like painting your face white as a black person.
