Do blondes have more fun? Miranda Kerr seems to think so. The gorgeous Victoria Secrets model revealed her lightened locks at the recent launch party for The Dream Angels Heavenly Enchanted Collection at The Grove in Lost Angeles.
The Garnier Nutrisse, ‘Shade of the Nation’ report released early this year reveals that 1 in 5 women have coloured their hair drastically due to a life-changing event with the break-up of a relationship topping the poll. The report also discovered that hair colour can have an influence on your career and the way people perceive you.
Miranda Kerr who is rumoured to have rejected Orlando Bloom’s proposals (yes, plural!), shows no signs of heartache or plans to break up with Bloom so far. However, we are yet to see whether her blonde ambition will further her modelling career.
Garnier Nutrisse’s research found that brunettes – natural or not when pitched against their blonde and red-haired rivals, were seen to be the highest achievers in life with 74% of people surveyed believing that brunettes were the brainiest.
Brunette’s popularity in the boardroom carried over into the bedroom with 71% of men picking a brunette as a relationship and marriage partner and 1 in ten men feeling the most successful with a brunette on their arm with only a mere 6% choosing a feisty redhead as a bed mate.
However, blondes were still thought to be more fun with 43% of blondes rated as fun, followed by 42% of redheads and only 15% of brunettes. Redheads also lived up to their stereotype with 78% of redheads rated as fiery and only 12% of blondes and 10% of brunettes falling into this category.
The universal question whether men prefer blondes, gorgeous brunettes or fiery redheads hasn’t yet been answered but the next time you step into the hair salon or reach for a box of hair colour at the supermarket, think about how you want to be perceived in the boardroom and the bedroom.
According to the results of the Garnier Nutrisse report, if you’re a brunette, you may ponder about this for a while, redheads may just rebel and colour their hair anyway while blondes may be having too much fun to even give it a moment’s thought …
