Basically proper blonde people looks blonde in all pictures, and they dont depend to be on summer to be blonde, they look strongly blonde the whole year. The proper blondes usually have thin hair and the most dominant color is some sort of strong yellow/golden blonde although they can turn into light/platinium blondes by summer

How common would be people like this?
No, proper blondes do not have thin hair per se but rather blonde hair texture is fine. However, blondes have the most hair follicles per square inch of all hair colors. These facts are not carved in stone however, because of the many, many combination of genes a child inherits from their parents and further back.

My husband is Greek (dark blond and light blue eyes) and my heritage is Scots-Irish and German (tow head and light blue eyes)...my children range in blonde hair color from yellow white (tow headed) to medium blonde...two with blue eyes and one with green eyes.

Best regards, sincerely

That makes sense because my hair is rather fine, and was very fine when I was a child, but I have A LOT of it, stylists always comment on how much hair I have, when I let it grow longer it gets so heavy, and hot in the summer, but the individual strands aren't thick.

Can we say naturally light hued blondes, instead of proper blondes? Proper just doesn't sound right. This is just a general post, I know you were just quoting.

Many people cant see it because they grew up seeing mostly fake blondes, hence they dont know what features associate with natural blondes and which ones with brunettes.


For example that blonde is natural:




This one is fake (most american "blondes" fit right here btw):
I'll go for the "fake blonde any day than the natural blonde in the pictures you posted. I like white women....but not chalk white. Can't even tell her hair from her skin. Ill pass on the natural blonde.

That was my big question about these threads. I understand preferences, we all have them, but to find brunette females so unattractive they may as well be men takes a preference to a new, possibly problematic level.

Hopefully he is being over dramatic. I do that often for humor purposes....not sure if I would say that non blondes remind me of men though. Lol

Show me crowds of native peoples, concerts in any asian, african or australasian country/island where most of a reasonable % of people are blonde.

Also posting blonde children means nothing, use adult people next time, otherwise most white americans and brits would be blonde, when in reality the big majority of their adults are brownhaired.
What does the percentage matter? I was responding directly to your assertion that you have to have the "right" skin tone and facial features to look naturally blonde. I was merely demonstrating that natural comes in many forms beyond northern European.

Thank you home is were, I hope you just have had a nice christmas

Yes indeed blondes have more hair, or more full hair, but the hair itself is not as thick as dark brunettes on average, But well Im telling this comparing northern european blondes, with people from southern europe/mediterranean ancestry. Arabs have even thicker hair on average.

Percentages matter, because 99,99% of blondes in the world have either germanic/slavic ancestry/ethnicity, so you are likely countring exceptions, Im sure most chinese people have never met a natural blond chinese, but they probably exist (just extremely rare cases)

Anyways you can logically infere that with the thread title Im meaning the 99,99% of blondes in the world, not the exceptions.

B.
The poster has it a bit off. It may have been on the other thread, but you did write something like looking at conventionally attractive brunette women was like looking at men for you, there was no attraction for you, just nothing. It was probably hyperbole, but I also found it odd. My fiancee' usually prefers brunettes, he currently loves that T mobile chick, and he tends to like Latina women, but he's with a blonde and I know he finds me very attractive despite not loving my hair color.

Actually, since he has been with me he has started pointing out more blondes that he finds attractive, I think he's become more open to blondes since he's been with me. Everyone has preferences, but most people make exceptions, and can appreciate an attractive member of the opposite sex even if they aren't that person's "type." Feeling nothing, like they could be men is a bit unusual.

(BTW, I should add before anyone thinks he's some kind of jerk, that we are both very secure people, we often point out people on TV, or strangers that we find attractive, it's just fun for us, there's no jealousy.)
