Do Blondes Have More Fun?

Ah, the age-old question resurfaces once again. And over the next few days, as experts of music, film, art, and literature meet at the Sorbonne to discuss this phenomenon, they hope to answer just that. The conference, aptly named "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," aims to get to the root of it.

So, do blondes have more fun? Do gentlemen actually prefer blondes? Does it matter if a woman is a "bottle blonde" or a natural one? Ack, the questions that keep me up at night. What do you think? When it comes to hair color, are the lighter lassies whooping it up with greater frequency or is it all just a tall, blonde, and leggy tale?

This archaic battle of blondes vs brunettes is just that: Archaic. What most of you fail to realize is that the question is, "Do blonde have more fun?" NOT, "Do blonde get more attention?" It saddens me to realize I live in world where my sisters equate fun with getting attention from guys (or girls, if thats your thing). The only way to have more fun, is to actually go out into the world and make your own fun. NOTE: If getting attention is your main goal in life, here's a tip. Once you appear to be having the time of your life (truly; not pretending), hair color becomes an afterthought. Every suitor wants first and foremost, a love interest who has a fun and fulfilling life. Do us all a favor: Slap yourself in the face, and rearrange your priorities.

IT WAS SAD TO HEAR SOME OF THE COMMENTS ON HERE - that men target blondes because they are "easy" and that men consider brunettes for serious relationships. KIND OF RUDE COMMENTS. To the girl who said "Well, all of my boyfriends said they prefer brunettes". Well, of course the men you date are going to say that..... they aren't going to get any action if you are on a date and they say, "No, I prefer blondes"............. DON'T JUDGE YOUR GAL PALS BECAUSE OF THEIR HAIR COLOR. :makeup:

My hair is a natural auburn so if that old saying is true, guess I've got the best of both worlds! :)I actually read somewhere the other day that men prefered blondes as girlfriends, redheads as mistresses (!!!), and brunettes as wives. It was based off of a study, I think from the National Psychology Institute, but don't quote me on that.

Do blondes have more fun? Hmm... I don't think it's the actual colour but the associations that come along with it that may make some women feel more outgoing if they are or become blonde. I know some people who dyed their hair blonde and suddenly they took on this character and had "more fun" or whatever. I think comes down to confidence. And since I belong to a race that does not produce blondes, I'm not about to let this stereotype rule me.

Well, I'm not blonde and have no desire to be, and I'd say I have a pretty good time for myself! LOL

Psh. Hair color doesn't matter! After all, "girls just wanna have fun". :) I am a natural warm blonde. I would dye my hair darker, but it is not flattering to my skin tone. I resent all of the "blonde" stereotypes (because most of them are exaggerated) and often men (and some women) make assumptions about me, my intelligence, and my preferences (in music, colors, ect.) due to my hair color. But regardless of hair color, every woman has stereotypes of some sort that she must overcome.

I am naturally dark blonde with a bit of red thrown in but have been very blonde for awhile, also dark brown, auburn, streaky, you name it. Blondes do get more attention, but I think it is unfair when other girls say that guys only look at girls who are blond. I think extreme hair always demands a second look, very dark (black) or red or pink or yes, blonde. It is bright and colorful and makes you look twice. However, I don't think I have more fun as a blonde. I think girls seem to assume that guys only want blondes which I don't think is true. I think it is your attitude and your self-esteem. Guys like girls who are positive and confident, no matter what your hair color. I am a little irritated by this because I just had this conversation with a friend of mine just yesterday about blondes and attention and wearing makeup versus just going gray and being natural without makeup. My stance is do what you want, but don't get mad at people who are wearing makeup and making the most of what God gave them (no surgery) just makeup and hair styling/coloring. Why is that so vain?

i dye my hair red, am naturally brunette... and always have an amazing time. one of my best friends is blonde, dyes it lighter, another brunette(naturally blonde)... we go out on the town as a trio and get the same amount of attention. if i'm honest (and i am!) i would have to say i get more attention, but that may just be becuase i'm wrapped up in my own zen moment and am not paying attention to the advances my girlfriends are getting... the point is, i never feel unacknowledged... i think the hair is just a fraction of the package, especially if you dye it... a physical interpretation of your personality (stereotypes aside). so how much does hair color really matter? probably as much as eye color, physique, lipstick choice, etc. worth noting, but not everything.

I don't know -- I'm a redhead and I've had a LOT less fun than all the blondes I know. Men have praised my hair, but then immediately asked my blonde sister out!

"Btw, I used to watch Gentlemen Prefer Blondes when I was younger and I always thought Jane Russell was much more stunning, smart, and funny compared to Marilyn Monroe. " Speaking of stereotyping blondes, Marilyn was actually supposed to be pretty smart actually and she read a lot...of books that aren't silly fluff.
