Is it true that most women find redhead and blonde men less attractive?

I've been reading something about hair colour and attraction psychology and found out an article which proves that most women prefer dark-coloured hair on men.
I want to know whether It is true or not, thus answer following questions :

Girls, do you prefer brunette men to redheads and blondes?

Guys, what's your experience and thoughts about it?

      I've been attracted to the guys who are dark haired, but I also have been attracted to the guys who have blond and reddish hair.

      I can say that dark hair is not really my number 1 preference though all of my friends like men with dark hair. If I chose a man with dark hair I'd prefer him to have light eye colour.

  • First, I don't think there is an answer which fits all women. The answer probably varies between cultures, nationalities, age groups, and even subgroups within those groups. I doubt that any one article has "proved" that all women prefer dark haired men. For instance, there are probably groups within the Irish nationality which prefer red haired men.

    Having said all of that, my experience within my ethnic group is that most women prefer either dark haired or blonde guys. I think red haired guys are at a disadvantage with Caucasian, Protestant men of English heritage. Within that group, I don't think that dark haired guys get any preference, as many girls prefer the surfer boy image.

      Yes I agree with you, It can be different in different cultures, age groups and individuals. Me and my cousins were raised together, but we have completely different tastes when It is about men.

      I guess childhood experience also has a main influence on our future choice of partners and their appearances.

  • $%^&*
    Yup...
    That's true.
    I asked this question before and i get the same results. Blonde hair often is related to femininity, which is confusing because Vikings raped murdered and pillaged all while having beautiful blonde hair.

    I personally adore blonde hair. Plus I have it, but it's more sunkissed blonde meaning that it's usual color is like an amber-honey, when its exposed to the sun for a bit, it will change color to almost platinum. Its pretty cool, I'd like to think anyway.

      I am not that attracted to Chris, I don't know why. He's sexy and all just I don't like something about his eyes or gaze. And It's super weird cause even my brother thinks that Chris is very handsome.

      Though I like Paul Bettany.

      I am yet to guess why is light hair perceived as feminine :/

  • I think most women prefer dark hair. I think all of my exs have preferred dark hair but have still found me really attractive even though my hair is like dirty blonde, so your hair color shouldn't be a problem as long as it fits you and you look attractive.

  • Hmmm. I always thought women really liked blonde guys. I had blonde hair when I was a kid, but then it turned brownish reddish blondish. Pretty much brown. I really prefered it blonde. I always thought that blonde guys looked better than other hair colors. A lot of the time.

    Mmmm. I really don't know. I always figured there wasn't much of a difference in hair color for women.

    Did it say why women preferred darker colors?

  • yes from my experience i have black hair, black eyes and olive skin and women absolutly love them, i've been told before how blonde or light haired guys aren't really their type and they like black hair the most, my friend had a similiar experience with lots of girls.

    as for guys they like the opposite, light hair and eyes is attractive to them , for me blue eys and red/light brown hair is the best a girl can ever be.

      Why do they get judged?

    • 2mo

      It happens I'm less likely to date a blonde hair woman
      cause they all seem materialistic and some red heads
      won't give me the time of the day. It happens girls would
      tease me in school for being overweight i tried dieting to
      kill myself to find a girlfriend, never had High School
      Sweetheart. We can have low self esteem stuff happens.

  • I have no idea. But I don't find gingerheads attractive in general speaking. But blondes depends very. Some suit it, other don't. I thinks brunettes and black hair is the most attractive hair colors.

  • Nah its not true and in fact a lot of women prefer the "blonde surfer boy" look, or Brad Pitt or the Blonde guy from Thor.

    Brad Pitt as an example widely considered one of the most attractive guys for a long time, maybe less now because he's older but still.

    Blonde hair is more rare so maybe the ones saying no have 0 experience around Blonde guys or very little experience.

    Side note, I've heard that blonde hair is quite popular in China, Japan and some other Asian countries. Once again, proving my point.

      It seems like they're more rare so it stands to reason they would be more attractive, right? And sooooo many celebrities have blue eyes. Like all American icons of manliness. I don't know it kinda made me feel bad as a kid to have regular old brown eyes and not he as good looking as those hollywood actors.

  • Maybe.. Ed sheeran has red hair and girls are crazy.. Decaprio is blonde girls are crazy.. Daniel radcliffe is a burnette and girls are crazy.. You can see a connection here.. Its not about men its about women cause they are crazy

  • Not sure but you can offer your opinion on my last question :)
    Anyways more dominant features are objectively more attractive but hair color can be like eye color in that if most of your other traits are dominant a less dominant hair color trait positively sets you apart

      Hair color hasn't got anything to do with estrogen or testosterone. It has to do with melanin and genes...

      Yeah I get that, but to be honest it would suck if I had to limit the things I found attractive in women to just three words like "short, pale and beautiful" cause I can find all kinds of combinations attractive like tall, tanned and cute for example.

      I think the blonde guy Thor would beat your ass, as would Conor Mcgregor or Brock lesnar
