I've met quite a few Spaniards who have blonde or even red hair. In my experience they're a lot "whiter" than Italians or Portuguese, more like French people. The ones I met were all from the North (Catalunya) and centre (Madrid) though. I suppose people in other parts of Spain are generally darker.

Yes. But the blonde ones are like spanish young actor Jaime Olias (more lightbrown/dirtyblonde) not like ronald koeman or oliver kahn type of blonde. Even in northern spain you see a lot of people with very pale skin, and more blue eyes than in the south, yet few to none are true blondes, only a few lightbrown/dirtyblonde.

there are pictures of typical spanish students




From the picture above:

9 dark brown/black
1 medium (first guy left in top row)
1 medium brown to light brown (second girl left middle row)
1 light brown (first girl left middle row)


And we have to consider that the group above is almost exclusively dominated by teenagers, which means that their hair could get even darker (at least the 3 who arent darkbrown/black haired) by the time they hit late teenages or early adulhood, age when hair color somewhat stabilizes for a long time.

Only a couple of brownish/lightbrown haired girls, the rest are all black/darkbrown hair.
No, there were two Spanish girls in my class last year that were really blonde (like, yellowish blonde) and had blue eyes and fair skin. I was watching a Spanish movie last night (El Orfanato) and the lead actress also had blonde hair. It's not as exceptional as you think in certain regions (North/centre) of Spain. This is the actess I'm talking about btw,Belén Rueda:

That woman has underneath darker hair, she is a fake blonde , you can easily tell a fake from a natural blonde. Anyways most of the women from the celtic fringe when they dye their hair dont look so unnaturally blonde, despite having naturally much darker hair, I've noticed that among Irish women, some western British, atlantic french areas and from northern spain, which despite being naturally very dark haired naturally can go to a blonde shade without looking that unnatural , unlike most italian and greek women, which balkanian or pseudo-balkanian featuresand olive tone skin give them away faster.

It's quite common in those areas the very pale skin, dark hair and blue/light eyes combination. True blonde hair is rare though.




Dark hair in the underneath and too dark eyebrows, no way its her natural hair color, I could put 5000 euros on that. All the girls with her similar facial features I've seen have been deep darkbrown/black haired.

Now a true blonde from northern europe:



I think we all can see the difference.


Thats why you have only seen "girls" with supposedly "natural" yellow blond from spain, but never guys... I wonder why..

That pic is not taken in Spain although the students can be perfectly Spanish, not sure about the teacher.

I used to have darker hair when I was younger than now.

There is also spanish sportman kiko vega, but who many of those you see in spain? I bet they are not even the 1% of ethnic spanish population. Thats why everytime you see spanish people posting the supposed "blonde spaniards" or "spanish are also white european", etc on youtube they often post nearly exclusively women with supposedly "natural" blonde hair", when on reality nearly every one of them are either bleached dark brunettes like the woman from the picture above or either barely medium/lightbrown in the case they havent their hair dyed. They don't do it with men because men rarely dye their hair compared to women, hence they should post all the time the couple of few dudes with 100% ethnic spanish heritage who have real blond hair.


protest in cataluña:

How many blondies are there?








Not very many natural blonde guys there, isnt it?

Yes. The ones most obsessive to race and hair colour are often from America. And yes, most Spaniards, Portuguese, Italians and Greeks have dark hair and brown eyes. So what? All cultures tend to find beautiful traits that are rare to that region. I like women with brown eyes and dark hair, many Spaniards are crazy for Scandinavian blondes. In India I would be the most popular man of the village because of my blue eyes. So what?

This is a picture from a Finnish anti-nuclear demonstration:

Ok, there is much more blondes than in the Barcelonan 15-M demonstrations, but the most striking difference is that these people are listening quietly to the one speaking, while the more southern demonstrations often escalate in rioting.

Another stupid thread by a stupid American regarding "Europe", demonstrating their complete lack of knowledge. You do realize that there are plenty of dark-haired, dark-eyed Europeans, right? Take a trip to the Balkans and see. And that Europe is a continent composed of many countries, cultures, and ethnicities? It's not a monolithic group of "white" people with blond hair and blue eyes...even the Scandinavians don't all look alike.
