If it is so rare then why do I see it everywhere?
Blonde hair is not a recessive trait so it is not inherently "rare" to begin with.

But the obvious answer is hair dye, duh.

Not that many natural blondes in Miami. OP I think you're basing this only around YOUR surroundings. Some places just have a lot of natural blondes and some don't. My cousin said when he was in Minnesota he saw a LOT of blondes, of course they got the Scandinavian blood up dere doncha know!

Two of the six kids in my family have blonde hair - but both are male. We all had blonde hair as children but it turned darker as we aged. My sister, who has the darkest hair of all of us, was a towhead as a child.

If you hate to generalize then why are you doing it? Do you really hate it? Or do you enjoy bashing fake blondes?

I am a hair stylist and can say at least 90% of the women in my chair that are blondes aren't natural. It's extremely rare to have light blonde hair, especially as a person ages. The vast majority of women want to always go lighter. Even if a woman is a dark natural blonde, she will usually want to be a medium or light blonde. That's why it looks convincing on a lot of women. They usually aren't going that far from their natural color level, just the most they can realistically get away with. Like me, I am a natural light brunette but I can get away with somewhere between dark blonde and medium blonde and pass it off as natural. This is what most women do. Men have no idea what we go through to look good!

When women are getting gray hair, your white roots don't show as fast if your hair is lighter, than they would against a dark brown. Thus the reason many women go lighter colored dyes as they age.

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.


Agree with you completely. I've met many blonde-haired women of different origins and fashion tastes that were decent people.

If there's any truth to the 'dumb blonde' stereotype it applies more to bottle rather than natural blondes.
