Since 1971, studies have been conducted on how people judge women based on their hair color. Spoiler alert: blondes don't always have more fun.

Seems like a ploy to gain attention and stand out. Everyone is so consumed with themselves and how amazing they are. I see people saying they do it to express themselves, but what exactly are you expressing? Maybe I sound ignorant, but by all means enlighten me. Im trying to understand this trend/fad.
I’ve got naturally brown hair that’s dyed mostly green. The dye looked a lot more blue when I first had it done. I long time ago it was pink and before I had it side shaved I looked like a literal cloud.
Well, I was born with dark brown hair that most people called “black”. I started going grey and 18 (yes, that’s some aggressive pre-mature graying). In my 20’s I dyed it medium brown and auburn. I tried dying it black, but it was meh. As my natural hair became lighter, my hair color got lighter (and also shorter). For a while I was blond, but I also had a crew-cut. Then I accidentally ended up with orange hair and liked it. My hair was orange until I just gave up on dying it. Now it’s grey.
I like my brown hair. I also wouldn't mind if my hair skipped the "gray" phase and went completely white like it has been since I turned 18. Progressively whiter and whiter hair and I haven't turned 30 yet 😦
meh. i mean with every woman ever coming from a bottle the only thing i am impressed by is natural redheads. healthy long hair of any color is probably the best way to get my attention. also, i am a firm believer in women with weird hair(dreads, undershaves, fried by color) being special snowflakes and women with short hair just being plain boring as fuck.
As a red head I get a lot of lewd comments. "Do the drapes match the carpet?" Also, why the eff does everyone think the 'classic' "red-headed stepchild" 'joke' is funny? It's neither funny nor original, so stop.
I can't figure out what is my hair colour. I'm 13 and my most of my hair is dark reddish brown but under my bangs are strands of blonde and grey hair. Plus, my hair's completely natural!! I'm really weird.
Not everyone likes blonde.
And not everyone can see some reds.....
And I'd rather see a girl as She Is. That shows she's willing to be vulnerable. Or at least honest👌
Just be careful with that last one. Some women take pride in coloring their hair and That can Backfire😓
I think my dark Brown hairs says I have a high level of both Dominant melanins (Black and Greyish) and a low recessive Melanin (Red). It also along with my other features accentuates my mixed race ancestry, I was born with a chunk of grey hair which people rarely notice and that says I'm Unique.
I admit it... ...I am both a natural ginger and a South Park fanatic with Cartman-like impulsivity. I am a disgrace to the world... ... yet, at the same time, *I AM the best of both worlds* (cue the Hannah Montana music)
The funny thing is I'm a brunette girl but I am blonde at heart because although I'm brunette, I have all the traits of a stereotypical blonde. I am a cheer leading, fun, popular, hot, party animal. That just shows that hair color doesn't really define your personality. You do
I'm a blonde male with blue eyes and I'm more attracted to women with brunette hair colour and blue eyes, though every brunette bird I have been with, has had brown hair and brown eyes :/ damn brunettes with blue eyes are hard to find lol
I have the blackest shade of hair possible and yet im not happy or approachable and I am intelligent but I am the only girl with that colour all the others are blondes and I love video games so I think I'm a tomboy girl
I see a lot of people hating on blonde in the comments, both people who have it and people who don't. It's tough, really, because any girl with blonde hair knows that it can be hard to be taken seriously with certain people. I myself have struggled with my hair because I've always valued intelligence over appearance, and I still haven't really come to terms with what that means for me. I want to be seen as intelligent, but I'd never dye my hair because I know that I wouldn't really feel like me.
i love brunettes they usual are not liars, down to earth, and are more sensible! because we know that the crazier brunettes dye their hair other colors. but it is rare for other hair colors to dye to become brunette! DYING IS LYING! And usually has correlation to personalities!
im a natural blonde, ive been dyeing my hair for 8 years to escape the stereotype surrounding blondes (at age 14..) though i started by going brunette ive been doing bright colours for 4 years.. currently on purple thats faded to more of a magenta.
I think of people with unusual hair colors (Iike pink) to be more adventurous, less hung up on being "normal," often surprisingly shy, but also really artistic and expressive.
I've made instant friends with people just because I said I loved their hair color.
I have a feeling that most red heads like myself were bullied for their hair color, and the older you get the more often you see those who made fun of your hair trying to dye their hair red! It's honestly fun to give them a little mocking smirk.
I simply adore grey hair! Those people, men and women, who get that whole head of silver/white hair are so lucky. Very gorgeous, very fashionable, very hot. If you have mousey brown hair with grey strays, you don't get that same sex appeal. Dyeing your hair grey is extremely expensive and very high maintenance. But it's so gorgeous!
I am a blonde women, In 4th grade someone put a sign on my back that said "Dumb Blonde" I am not dumb at all. No one understand that your hair color does not even have anything to do with how smart you are😂. I love being a blonde
What my hair colour says about me? Genetic inheritance of early graying! Haha. Seriously, though, I'm a red toned brunette and I like my hair colour. Couldn't care less what others think of it. It's a strange advantage on the income thing but I'll take it!
I have auburn hair and dye some of it auburn. Also the redheads being weird stereotype is true for me. Auburn hair is a type of red hair, and if you watch just one of my videos, my weirdnes will be very noticeable. XD
Max Mansfield sadly people have a strange thing about touch=belief. You can tell a person there are a million and two stars in the sky - they will probably believe you. Tell someone the paint on that bench is wet and they have to go touch in order to verify. (people are weird, I'm sorry).
Even though I just commented about the blond thing I'd like to add that you are born with your hair colour and the colour of your hair does not affect who you are even if you dye your hair it's probably cause you like the colour or think it would look good as you hair but that doesn't affect your personality either.
What about dirty blond hair? It looks way different than regular blond hair and although I know the blond thing is a stereotype the girls with dirty blond hair that I know are nothing like the stereotypes.
Little Big Heart I'm not even really blonde. I just have light brown hair most of the year and people still kind of make blonde jokes to me and I'm like 😠😡😤🙄😒My hair is starting to get lighter lol so I will probably end up blonde.
I'm strawberry blond, so only have a light orange tint to my dark blond hair. Not full on ginger.
What I've noticed is that hetero man reactions vary depending on race, I don't know if that makes me racist but who gives a shit. For the most part, white men aren't impressed and prefer east Asian women, and every other race of man finds me exotic and gorgeous. That's it.
I have to say people with straight black hair look the most professional, intelligent and respectable. Unlike Blond hair or brown hair, black hair has the same blackness from the top to the the roots of your hair ( blond hair can be have brunet bits and even red bits, so it's like a rainbow assortment of colors) black hair has the same consistent color all the way through, which might explain why black haired people are considered to be intelligent. Another reason why black hair is awesome is because it contrasts well with your skin, making your skin and your hair stand out. Unlike brown, blond or red heads, black haired people can be found in virtually every race/ethnicity, where as in red heads on blonds are mostly limited to the Caucasian race.
My hair says you are part native American and part Irish i will eat your comb or brush if try to use either one. Hair pick and fingers for anyone who wants to know.and my hair isn't lying. Seriously I warned kiosk lady with straigjtner it was bad idea ahe insisted it be just fine. My hair broke it. She was so sad. I huess wojld have been like 2002ish. I have broken so many brushes and combs hair ties to.
Speaking as someone with blond hair, the jokes get REALLY annoying. I could get a double PhD in Science and Biology, and I'd still get the "dumb blonde" comments if I ever forget my keys or something. Once, I was even called a dumb blonde by a teacher, which was just way out of line if you ask me! Those jokes are also only directed at women, I can't remember ever hearing a guy get called stupid for his hair color.
Luckily, it doesn't happen often, so it's only a mild annoyance. I do wonder if people would approach me differently if I had darker hair, maybe I'll dye it one day to find out.
People are stupid sometimes. Best to just ignore the ones who make stupid comments and be around people who like you for you. I know people want the whole of society ti change their attitude but its never going to happen.
Yeah I know! I've got dark blond hair that's almost brown but when I was young I had really light hair and I'm not dumb I'm actually one of the smartest people in my class, so anyway I get really angered about the whole "dumb blonde" thing.
What if your hair is dirty blonde but some people think it's brown and others think it's red cause of how it looks in the sun?..
I've been trying to figure out my hair color for years. It used to be blonde when I was little (my picture is two years old and edited beyond belief)
I have blond hair and I'm just going into high school so I'm kinda of worried people will think I'm slutty/dumb or just think I'm mean and unapproachable. Luckily my hair is naturally getting darker so I won't have to deal with the blond thing and I won't have to dye my hair.
I dyed my hair brown too cause I didn't want the "blonde" attention, the
jokes and the shallowness. Ever since I dyed it back to my natural
blonde colour, everyone in my big shallow family tells me how PRETTY and
GOODLOOKING I am now that I'm blonde again and how they hated to see me
brown haired. As if there's nothing more important than their opinion
about my appearance.
Now I get stupid jokes and cat calls again, calling me "doll", "baby" and "goldilocks" but everythings better than that dying drama, hair damage and roots! It's really hard to keep up with your hair growth... :/
I have plain brown hair, and I've always wanted to dye it a cool color. Looking at all these comments frighten me a bit, though! For the people who do have unnaturally colored hair, are you really treated so rudely?
By the way, I'm sure you rock the color ;)
I've got blonde hair and my best friend sometimes calls me dumb, she's got light brown hair and calls her self amazing, I know she's only teasing but it is annoying
Here's what stereotypes are basically
Black=Creepy (watch the ring)
How much I hate stereotypes
