Are you shocked? In a survey of 6,000 people, it was revealed that two times as many brown-haired ladies work in positions that pay between £45,000 and £55,000 (that's around $59,360 to $72,550) than blondes or redheads do.

The study, which was compiled by the folks at Garnier Nutrisse hair color, also concluded the following. Brunettes are. . .

  • More apt to be taken seriously.
  • Thought to be the most intelligent, according to 76 percent of the survey takers.
  • Thought to be the most genuine, said 81 percent of those surveyed.
  • Preferred in long-term relationships, backing similar data by British hairstylist Andrew Collinge.

Color psychologist Anjula Mutanda tells the Telegraph, "Some hair colors tend to darken naturally with age and so brown hair can be associated with confidence and self-awareness." Of course, this should be taken with a grain of salt. Look at the light-haired Sarah Jessica Parker in Garnier's ads. I'm guessing she's making more than the average brunette. Oh, and don't forget, it's quite possible that blondes have more fun, anyway.
