Where I live I would say a good 60 percent of the girls have light blonde hair, this is in the USA.

If it is so rare then why do I see it everywhere?

Most of them are fake blondes. I hardly know anyone with "light brown" or "ash" hair anymore; they all seem to go blonde.

Because America has an unlimited supply of hydrogen peroxide.

Bottle blondes. Most blondes you see all over the world are bottle blondes in fact. It is just as common for girls to bleach their hair in Europe as they do in America.

Is there a reason for girls bleaching their hair bottle blonde?

And I hate to generalize but among some of these girls I notice a behavior change too. They seem to be more entitled for some reason.

Blond hair as one ages can turn this awful color which looks like you need to wash it. It isn't brown or red or blond, just blah. I bleached it back to blond for a long time, but often its also fine and you end up destroying the hair. I've taken to red instead. And henna. Red is another color you see far more of than is natural. I can half claim it since there was a lot of red in my blond and I'm just helping it live.

Blonde hair is a common element of conventional Western beauty. Blondes are still highly sought after by men, hence one reason for the entitled attitude. However, many men become doormats for any pretty woman, regardless of hair color.

I have heard more men say they prefer brunettes but I guess men might say they prefer brunettes when they really want blondes.

As for the entitled attitude, I have seen it more among blondes that are somewhat attractive than any other kind of women but I know it is more of an American thing than a worldwide thing. When I visited Europe women didn't act like that at all.

But it isn't just the blonde hair that does it, it is also the expensive clothes and fake tans which kinda gives off the whole "she is looking for a rich guy" or "she is looking for a male model" kind of vibe.

Like others said, many are fake blondes (or almost blondes who enhance it.)

But blonde hair isn't rare amongst some populations, many of whom settled in the Midwest and still dominate there. And dominant/recessive isn't as simple as we were all taught with Punnet squares.

They may have dyed bottle blonde hair, but a glance at the roots and/or eyebrows will tell you the real story.
