Locks of Love

Today’s BS study brought to you by Askmen.com!

So much for the idea that gentlemen prefer blondes. A new study by the University of Westminster in the UK and the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology indicates that while blondes may get more attention, men are more attracted to brunettes.

Researchers ran an experiment in which they dispatched a woman to three different nightclubs in London with her hair dyed three different colors: brunette, blond and red. With blond hair, she received the most attention with men hitting on her at a higher rate, but when 130 men were polled to determine which woman they preferred, the brunette was rated the highest for not only attractiveness but also intelligence. (Insert your blonde jokes here.)

Blondes are more capable of capturing the attention of the room, but the results indicate that guys gave a better rating to the girl-next-door type. Maybe we just don’t take blondes as seriously.

When it comes to settling down long term, do you think higher of brunettes and lesser of the perfect platinum blondes?

Wait a second, what happened to the redhead?! No one approached her at all?

And why are we sterotyping people’s personalities based on hair color?

Do you hit on girls based on some superficial ideal trait like a good dye job? Comment below!

AND JUST TRY AND TELL ME YOU DON’T WANT A PIECE OF THAT!
