Study Finds That Blondes Make More Than Brunettes

Study Finds That Blondes Make $900 a Year More

Is making more money one of your resolutions for 2011? Perhaps going blond is the answer, then. A recent study by British beauty and health retailer Superdrug found that blondes bring in over $900 more a year compared to redheads and brunettes. "The good news is that there is no difference for those with a natural hair color and those with dyed hair," said Superdrug's Simon Comins. The results, however, directly contradict the findings of a similar study performed by Garnier Nutrisse almost two years ago, so, you know, take it with a grain of salt. To find out more stats from the study, including why there could be a rise of the brunette in 2011, just keep reading.

  • Brunettes are more apt to stay in a job longer in hopes of moving upward.
  • Redheads were more likely to switch jobs to find better work situations and salaries.
  • Even though the study found that blondes make more money, it also found that they generally left the office at 5 p.m., unlike their darker-haired counterparts, who stayed later.
  • Brown hair is expected to grow in popularity. "While blond is a perennial favorite, next year we are predicting the rise of the Brunette Bombshell as customers aim to emulate the classic refined style of Kate Middleton," Comins explained.

ok; let's stay classy in the comments folks. it's not blondes' fault that the men who hire people subconciously prefer blondes. that to me is the only reason why this would be true; a woman's hair color has nothing to do with her intelligence, competence, work ethic, or all the other important qualifications a good worker ought to have....

The very existence of this study makes me angry. Do we have studies like this for men? I haven't heard about them. But when it comes's not about education, or any intellectual quality, of course. It's always about our bloody looks -what else matters? I realise this was commissioned by Superdrug but the attitude it betrays makes me sick.
