It is possible for someone to bleach and/or dye their eyebrows - it is not a true indication of if someone is a natural blonde or not.

It the woman is close to blonde to begin with, yeah, she's a blonde.

I, like many natural brunettes, had to try on "blonde" for awhile. But, after a while, I have to get back to my dark hair, because I'm a true brunette in my "soul".

Yes, and I think it's usually not hard to tell whether someone's a natural blonde or not. Of course there is a distinction between natural blondes and bottle/bleach blondes...

A similar question is, if someone has coloured contacts do we reference the colour of their colours when describing them? I'd say yes for descriptive purposes (say a police ID) but in other contexts you might say 'she has brown eyes, or is a natural brunette.' In one sense Britney is a brunette, and in another she's a blonde.

Quite a few women dye their eyebrows...not something i actually realised until not long ago. Check the roots and obviously eye colour. If a woman has dark brown eyes it's very unlikely she's a natural blonde. Think of all those blondes with dark eyes, like Britney Spears or Elizabeth Hasselback, to me it just doesn't look natural.

I don't get why anyone would call a person "a blonde". It's like calling them an object. You wouldn't call a man "a bald" or "a mustache". How about "a person with blonde hair" or "a person with red hair"?

Are you serious?

If she currently has blonde hair, then she is a blonde. Why would you feel the need to point out what color of hair she was born with or had when you first met her?

A woman is considered legally blond based on 1) her IQ and 2) her spending (shopping habits). You can be a non white femaie brunette and still be legally blond.

I have not read all 5 pages, but I am surprised that this thread has gone on so long.

Really? Blonde is just a description of hair color. Its used to describe physical appearance. If you need to point someone out, you would say the blonde women in the red shirt. If you tell them to look for the brown haired women with the red shirt, you would be the one to get crazy looks.

Yes of course they are blondes --- and if the truth be told, ALL blondes over age 20 or 25 need some "help".
