Yes, the look to have for women is blonde hair and blue eyes and for men tall dark and handsome. My wife is a natural blonde and I'm tall dark and handsome, so we definitely fit the mold.

However, many brunettes feel "left out" so they dye their hair blonde. But I always look at the roots, I want a natural blonde not a fake one.

I used to date brunettes but "once you go blonde you cannot go back". The fact is that I've always been turned on by blondes and only later in life when I was more confident was I able to get the blondes that were unattainable years before.

Fact is most American men, whether they claim it or not, want a blonde by their side (or a redhead).

So true. What makes it worse for me is that even though I am Caucasian, during the summer months I turn really brown (might be due to some other things in my ancestry) and that makes me look more Middle Eastern (prominent nose and black hair, eyes are brown too) which automatically takes me out of the running for most of the attractive blondes.

You hit the nail right on the head. Guys will say they prefer brunettes but given the opportunity to choose between an Anne Hathaway or a Jenna Jameson for a one night stand, most guys will go for the Blonde. Relationships might be different but I guess the realize blondes develop such a heavy sense of entitlement because most men want them.

Kind of like how women will say they want a Nice caring guy, and for relationships that might even be true, but for a one night stand they want the bad boy who just doesn't care. Same with men. We will say we want brunettes but when it comes down to a one night stand we all want a blonde.

But most Blondes and women who dye their hair that color know this.

Some just act normal and don't care at all while others abuse this privilege and from what I have seen from my very own eyes, use it to get ahead or manipulate men and society.

LOL

I'm a natural blonde, and so was mom. She always drew in the brows. I usually don't bother but discovered henna works on them too, thought you have to repeat it. I'd LOVE to have eyebrows you can see....

Some of my grandparents and their parents had red hair and I really wish I'd had that over blonde.

Why would you want to be a redhead over a blonde?

Blondes are more preferred and treated better by society than redheads are.

But red is beautiful. 'Preferred' is of no importance. I do my hair for me not someone else.

"Pure blonde" is a recessive trait but the gene frequency is high in Europeans [hence, a higher chance of homozygosity]. In addition, hair color is, in the end (phenotypically) determined by multiple genes such that, sometimes, blonde-ish colors can appear in a brunette-brunette mating even if the individual is only heterozygous for the blonde gene. In a sense, some dark hair genes are incomplete dominants.

And, peroxide is still 99 cents at the dollar store.

I don't know about that -- look at the brunette and black celebrities who know the blonder they get, the more money they'll bring in --- Madonna, Shakira, Beyonce, Rihanna are just some examples of bottle blondes.
