Does she or doesn't she? Only her hairdresser knows for sure!

United States has a wealth of women and lately men who use hair color in the 6 to 10 range, along with highlights of the same on brown hair, and bleach & tone (double process). The number or natural blondes in here probably is not that much greater than the average norm.

If you went by the females in parts of Manhattan, Connecticut and Long Island you'd swear the entire white/European or anyone with skin tone close enough to it was naturally blonde, which is of course not the case.

We will say we want brunettes but when it comes down to a one night stand we all want a blonde.
Wow, way to make sweeping generalizations! My DH prefers women that are 'exotic' (that is why we are together!) like Haifa Wehbe



and Aishwarya Rai

.

Not everyone has the same in taste in what they consider to be beautiful. My DH finds blondes to be bland, boring and anemic looking.

Oh, and btw- my DH used to be blonde (now he is bald!) with blue eyes and he is from Alabama. I am from Hawaii and when I was younger I resembled these women; I prefer men who look like my DH.

Differences are what makes the world so interesting; it would be so boring and bland if we all were the same!

Blonde hair is not so common in some areas of the US, I used to live in New York, and often went on excursions to Massachusetts, Rhode Island, the places I went to were jam packed with brunettes, no blonde hair, all ethnic Italian, Jewish...I was the only blonde in the bar! And usually had lines of drinks, men wanting to talk to me, because I was different from the norm there.

And I hate to generalize but among some of these girls I notice a behavior change too. They seem to be more entitled for some reason.


And here I thought I was the only one who noticed such behavior. Did you notice a lowering of IQ also? Or maybe they were that way before they hit the Lady Clairol.

90% of the "blondes" you see are not natural. There are many reasons why women choose this. One of them is the youthful appearance and makes your skin tone look better.. That is more the case of a natural blonde though.
My wife and her sister are natural and when the visited Italy they literally had men proposing to them.
One of the things i cant stand are bleached blondes (that were brunette) with fake boobs! I cant see why women do this.

Blondes are more preferred and treated better by society than redheads are.
It's very hard to get the chemistry right for red hair coloring. Most bottle redheads are obviously artificial. However, natural red hair can be a show stopper. I know a woman (Portugese, strangely enough) with natural curly red hair that is fabulous. This photo was a Halloween party. In real life, she is an architect.

If blonde hair is a recessive trait that is supposed to be rare, why do I see it everywhere in the US?-meaghan4.jpg

was thinking the same thing. Lots of natural blondes in my country too, the southern appalachians. Just depends upon where you go.

Both my sisters were blonde, one platinum who maintained her color no darker than an ash blonde, the other a golden blonde who turned dark in her 20s. Blonde just darkens with time for the most part.

I had copper blonde hair, that stayed that way though most of my life. At my age though I have lost all color and my hair is just fair. So my hairdresser is reluctantly highlighting with silver to ease me into the inevitable.

Hence the large ego.

As I said I have met decent blondes but it seems like girls who dye their hair blonde are just looking for a lot of validation and an ego boost. Those kinds of girls fall into the underlined category and in most USA college towns we have plenty of them.
