Blondes sometimes get a bad rap for being dumb – or a good one, for having more fun – depending on who you ask. So it’s time we got down to the scientific truth, don’t you think?
Let’s do it!
#8. Blonde-haired, blue-eyed men are drawn to blonde women
The reason is possibly evolutionary, since both traits are recessive. Only two parents with fair hair and eyes can produce an identical heir.
#7. It’s rare
Only 2% of the world’s population (but 1 in 20 Americans) are natural blondes.
#6. Gentlemen do prefer blondes
Blonde women are more likely to get picked up in a bar or helped on the street by a stranger. Sad but true!
#5. Blonde may not be forever
Most kids born with light hair will end up with dark locks before they turn 10. This is due to rising levels of a natural pigment called eumelanin.
Blonde women are more likely to get paid more than their peers and also to marry wealthy. Unfair!
#3. Blue eyes aren’t guaranteed
Unlike redheads, who often have light eyes and skin, blondes are just as likely to have dark eyes.
#2. They have more hair
A normal head of hair holds around 120,000 strands, but because blonde hair tends to be finer, they can have many more.
#1. 30 shades of blonde…
There are that many hues that can be considered true blonde.
