I'm Norwegian (a guy) and have been blond all my life. Women who are naturally blonde 1) usually have thicker hair than women who are bottle blonde, and 2) a natural blonde has hair of almost all colors from dark brown (the under-layers, esp in back) to nearly white-blonde (in the front, and on top). If you see a lady whose hair is all ONE color, it's highly likely it isn't natural.

Like with all things, the hairdressers have caught onto this, and now offer "highlight-lowlight" color jobs that closely mimic the natural look. However, the resulting color job is usually stunning to look at, whereas natural color tends to be more 'blah'...not at all unattractive, just not super-Wow.

And any lady with naturally blonde hair will NOT have naturally brown/black eyebrows...they will be more a light brown. The eyelashes may be blonde (although this is actually more common with red hair) but most always they will be dark brown/black like everyone else's.
This sums it up perfectly.
I was married to a natural blonde- Swedish guy who was blonde on top, blonde everywhere else, too.
Even his eyelashes were blonde, lol

My daughters are a rarity-- 100% natural blondes, of course w/ blue eyes too

I was a platinum blonde naturally, up til I hit about 12. Then my hair went to red.
Lol I'm actually going in to a friend of mine who's going to hi lights & lo lights....
Can't wait

Speaking as a man who has a serious thing for blondes, I have ways to weed out natural blondes from fakes. First, I always see the roots. Most girls don't know to dye well and the roots are dark while everything else is blonde. I don't need to see close; I always see from afar. Second, I have noticed that (at least here in CA) that fake blondes tend to act like they own the world while natural ones are more quiet and they tend to have their heads down more. I have seen exceptions to the latter but this usually comes true.

Really? You're surprised? Maybe because it's 2015 and anybody with half a brain knows by now that hair color has nothing to do with someone's IQ

same way you tell whether a blond secretary is confused. She's got a tampon behind her ear and she can't find her pencil anywhere!

We can recognize both by the texture of their hair. Naturally blonde hair are much glossy than bleach blonde.

Well, the first thing you should know is that natural blondes are very rare, as are natural redheads. Eyebrows are a good indicator, although not foolproof. Scandinavian blondes most often have blue, gray, or green eyes, so that's also a place to look. Dark brown eyes would be a pretty big tip-off that all is not as it seems.

Someone up thread mentioned the variation in strands. That's true. A head of natural hair is made up of many different colors. My daughter's hair is light strawberry blond from a distance. Up close, the individual strands vary from dark brown to white blond to vivid red. No two adjacent strands are exactly alike. Mine is the same, although with the addition of a little gray.

Finally, density is a clue. Natural blondes typically have fine hair of high density, meaning they have more strands per square inch than brunettes or redheads.
