HAIR'S A SURPRISE: GUYS PREFER BRUNETTES
By BILL HOFFMANN

June 30, 2003 -- Here's a real blond bombshell - it turns out brunettes actually have more fun.

"Gentlemen do not prefer blondes. They prefer brunettes," said Dr. Kelley Kline, who studied sex appeal at Florida State University.

"It's kind of an interesting finding, considering that in our society we concentrate on the blonde - it's so pervasive."

That means stunners like Catherine Zeta-Jones, Courteney Cox and Penelope Cruz have the edge over such beauties as Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz.

Kline's findings were based on interviews with 50 men on the appeal of various female facial characteristics or body types.

She and her team also discovered that both guys and gals like long, luscious hair compared to shorter cuts.

"[They] overwhelmingly find the long hair length significantly more attractive than the short and the medium hair length," Kline said.

She said the biological imperative to find a healthy, fertile mate may explain the finding, at least in men.

The findings were revealed at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Society, in Atlanta.

*giggles* Once waaaay back in elementary school, this guy I was sweet on told me he wouldn't go out with me unless I bleached myself blonde... I kind of lost my cool and ended up breaking his thumb by mistake Undecided Embarrassed

I've definitely never beat up any guys over my haircolor since (or anything else, for that matter) and I wouldn't reccommend it... but if he's reconsidered his position, maybe it was worth it Wink

But yes, it's a comfort to get some press for us darker ladies. Grin

I agree with LillyDale that would be the perfect world.

I'd be very grateful if guys turned their attention from boobs to  Roll Eyessses

they do butt jobs too these days, but with very bad results from what i heard lol. i think there's such simple exercices that give good results.

btw, my darl saw a great docu about the whole brunette vs. blonde thingy in men's heads. turns out most psycho analysists agree men see great mothers in blonde women (not difficult, easy character, angelic)  and great "lovers" in brunettes (very sexual, strong character, from hell in other words).

me loves being a brunette  Grin Grin
and i think it musn't be just a men's thing. for some weird reason i could never see myself blonde for the message it kinda carries, although from a pure esthetical point of view i do like blonde hair too.
