I think you can tell who's natural and who isn't by looking at the parts of the hair closest to the scalp of the woman in question. Bottle ones have darker roots than the legit natural blondes.

Yeah that's true, that's what I usually look at, but when you're just able to get a glance at someone you can't always look hard enough to tell.

It's not always obvious. I mean yeah, you can tell when someone with dark brown or black hair bleaches platinum blond. But in my experience the going blond thing is much, much more common among women who have light brown/dirty blond hair. Probably a lot of them started out blond as children and were unhappy with the color their hair faded to. It's rare to see a woman with this sort of natural intermediate hair color -probably because their stylist always suggests highlights to "brighten it up" and then they're sort of stuck having to do touch up forever.

Default 40 Flaxen Facts about Blonde Hair

Northern Europe has the most blondes. However, even most natural blonde babies lose their blonde hair once puberty sets in. Additionally, women find that after their first pregnancy, their hair and skin darken permanently.

While blonde hair is a recessive gene, it is not a disappearing gene. The World Health Organization and others erroneously published a report that claimed people with blonde hair would become extinct by 2202.

Blonde women are more susceptible to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), an eye condition that can cause blindness.

According to several surveys, men do not prefer blondes—at least not as serious mates. Men prefer brunettes as long-term partners because they view them as more reliable and steady.

If you want raw number I guess California could be high because it's a high population. Wisconsin might fit better though as it's nearly 90% white, largely Germanic, and has around 6 million people. There's also Pennsylvania, which is larger and is like 85% white I think it says. If you want something in "The South" Kentucky is nearly 90% white with British (English, Irish, and Scottish) descent predominating I believe. Granted that might make it more the place for red-heads, but blonds weren't uncommon among those peoples. If you don't count Kentucky as Southern, as it wasn't in the Confederacy, than Tennessee and Arkansas are around 80% white.

State and County QuickFacts

You want a specific city the following might fit.

Boise, Idaho - Just because it's bigger than most of these.
Dubuque, Iowa - 46% German descended.
Duluth, Minnesota - Significant majority is German or Scandinavian if I read it right.
Eau Claire, Wisconsin - 70% German, Norwegian, or Swedish descent if I read it right.
Fargo, North Dakota - 82% German, Norwegian, or Swedish descent if I read it right.

I'd guess Duluth and Fargo might be the way to go then.
I can attest to Duluth. A ton of Nords up here.

Men preferring brunettes is like women saying they love nice guys over douchebags. Ya they say that but once it comes down to it, blondes are way more attractive.

Speak for yourself. I don't care about hair color.
