Blondes Make More Money Than Brunettes

It's True! Blondes Do Have More Funds

Do blondes have more fun? The jury's out, but according to a recent study by The Motley Fool, they do earn more money. On average, flaxen-haired women in the UK take home the equivalent of $1,556 each month, while brunettes make about $1,432. Redheads earn even less, with an average of $1,357. But does this mean blondes are richer? Yes and no. The study found that 35 percent spend more than they make, mostly splurging on chocolate, shoes, and bags. We're taking these findings with a Costco economy-sized gallon of salt, but at least the study makes for conversation fodder this weekend.

That's a good point, Anon. Under the frivolity of the study, there are real and unfair trends: women making less than men, women of color often making less than their Caucasian counterparts, and lookism in general.

Correlation does not equal causation. Define only two variables and its easy to come up with absurd conclusions.

" A Costco economy-sized gallon of salt" hahaEarning more because of hair color is silly. But, there have been studies that suggest people earn more money because of their gender, skin color, and height. It's very superficial not to mention unethical.

Seriously though the fact that women make less than men is infuriating enough. We don't need even more pay inequity based on frivolous things like hair color...
