Blonds are most common in Europe and North America, which is less then 20% of the population, but even then not many adults are naturally blond.
I know it's not going to be drastically higher because of the reasons you state. I just think 2% is too low.

I concur. The woman on the right has white/grey/silver hair. I don't see blonde.

The main reason I posted it was not about if you want to call it blonde or white or whatever. I wanted to know if you think it was dyed or natural. Isn't that what this thread is about? Maybe I misunderstood.

Some people pay good money for their hair to look like that.

Why getting defensive?

My guess is that it's natural white/grey.

My best friend from childhood had very pale blonde hair. Once into our teens it started to darken to a more straw blonde color.

Once she had her children........it became more......ashy/taupey. But still fairly light.

Now we're seniors.........it's lightened up again to a very pale ashy blonde.

Never once has she bleached or colored or highlighted her hair in any way.

Her eyebrows were always medium brown and her lashes black.

Her eyes are a vibrant cornflower blue.........still............

Its about how to tell if someone colors their hair blonde.

As far as your picture.... I would say its naturally grey?

Is the difference between a "normal adult" and a preteen really the color of their hair? I would think your wife's body is that of a woman's no matter the hair situation.
First, MOH Is IS indeed for "My Other Half". I never heard of "mom at first"...No, NO mom...MOH is MY Other Half. BH is "better Half", but I don't like to imply one of us is better than the other, though in my case BH would be more correct to MOH I am sure! I myself would rather be called "MOH" than "DH" {"dear Husband"}. Yuck!

Second, MOH DOESN'T want to look "bald where the carpet grows", like a pre-pubescent would {with no hair} and MOH's blonde hair is SO fine, SO blonde it looks as if none is there, and MOH doesn't want to look like that. Thats all. Call it vanity if you want! SO it gets dyed darker so it shows. Don't ask me! SOme will shave to get that look, MOH doesn't like it!

And at 56 now, MOH wants to dye hair all the time as the "anti-gray thing" is taking hold!! ON BOTH of us!
MOH would LOVE me to dye my beard, but anything other than what WAS it's natural red would not look 'Right" to me! AND Just For Men doesn't make RED coloring. {wish they would}. I am not yet convinced I'll "look better" if I color my beard...maybe a few years younger, but "better" is relative. A light brown/blonde beard MAY be OK, but I earned the gray!!!
Maybe in a few years when I FEEL older, I will try coloring it....

Eyebrows, roots, skin tone. You know someone with an olive skin tone or even a medium skin tone is NOT a natural blonde.

Couldn't imagine getting my pubes dyed...Sex in the City had Kim Catrell character try and dye hers blonde with funny results of a bright orange color...I love grey in a man's beard and hair...hate when older men put a red dye in their hair...Regis Philbin started doing that before he retired...just saw a picture of him a few months ago and he has let go back to a natural snow white gray shade it make him look so distinguished (I think)...
