Blondes v Brunettes: Celebrity Favorites
Most guys have fantasized about a celebrity or two on occasion (hey, he's not reading People for the articles!) According to the survey, below are the celebs who top the list:
- Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Simpson tied for the blonde fantasy with 31 per cent each. Christina Aguilera came in third with 11 per cent.
- Angelina Jolie was queen of the brunette fantasy at 30 per cent, followed by Carmen Electra at 27 per cent and Vanessa Minnillo at 18 per cent.
Stereotypes Live On
No bombshells here. Blondes have the lead in the following categories:
- Life of the party (48 vs. 9 per cent)
- Air-head (63 vs. 2 per cent)
- Gold-digger (51 vs. 5 per cent)
While brunettes have the advantage in these categories:
- Intelligent (58 vs. 3 per cent)
- Serious (64 vs. 4 per cent)
- Good sense of humor (32 vs. 15 per cent)
Being a brunette myself, I'm pretty happy to take credit for the parts of the survey that I think match my personality (smart, funny) and quick to discard the categories that don't fit (pass on the one night stand, thankyouverymuch.) But I wonder if changing your hair color can really change how people perceive you? Are blondes with dark roots considered to be smarter? Are brunettes with blonde roots considered to be more fun?
I didn't like being blonde because it didn't feel like me. But I have shy brunette friends who blossomed into the life of the party once fortified with golden highlights.
The great thing about hair color is that you can change it in an afternoon. And the great thing about people is that we are all different and fabulous and interesting in our own ways -- no matter what the color of our hair.
