Why do you think men are more attracted to blonds?

I'm not complaining, I'm just curious. And, I know not all men are more attracted to blonds, but the majority are. I have a couple of theories:

1) Not many people are blond

2) Blond hair is bright & get's attention

3) Yellow is prettier than brown...

Does anyone else have any insight...

I appreciate everyone's opinion, but this question is about arguing whether men prefer blondes or not. It is about "why do men prefer blondes." I'm well aware not all men do, but the majority does, I'm just curious about the reason.

  • well I think its more the idea that its easier to lay a blonde... aka the dumb blonde

    • But it isn't easier to "lay" one of us, because, I myself, am a blond. And I'm not dumb. I'm very smart, academically and in common sense. Hair color doesn't mean anything, nor does size or shape.

  • do you have a source?

    • seriously, this isn't an argument about "do men prefer blondes." You're asking me to prove is like me asking you to prove that many straight guys like "butts." I don't have a source, I have eyes, that have witnessed it. The question is, why do you think this is?

    • My comment was in regards to your comment that says" you're asking a loaded question. I don't understand your following comment about the red sky, but that doesn't really matter.

    • it's an extreme version of a question with a false premise.

  • All shades and most styles can be attractive to me.

    I think blond appeals to some men because it is associated with the blond being vulnerable and needing protection (eg many white babies start blond with blue eyes before going on to develop different permanent natural hair and eye coloring later on).

    Some men think they can provide protection. I think the same traits explain why some women adopt a child like tone when they want things and some men enjoy it (think Marilyn to JFK).

    Lots of people of both genders regard such behavior and the implied lack of independence with contempt, but it still happens so must work for some people.

  • well I'm not bashing blondes but I usually prefer dark haired girls. I think most of it is what the media has portrayed as the female sex symbol - the blond in a erotic stance wearing something ever revealing.

  • If anything, I think number 1 is the reason, but since when are men more attracted to blonds?

    • Since the beginning of time...

    • Complete bullsh*t.

  • I usually find the natural and fake blondes to be more attractive than the non-blondes.

    • Thank you for your honesty. Do you have any insight into why you prefer blondes, I'm just curious.

    • I guess the reason I like blondes more is simply because the hair color makes a lot of women more attractive. Also, I started to prefer blondes over other women right after I saw Britney Spears with blond hair. After I saw her like that, I went crazy for blondes.

  • Its because of the media. Blond isn't better, that's someones opion. I hate blondes, I like black/dark brown the best because it brings out the contours of the face better and brightens the eyes. things like eye liner look bolder and match with the hair. Blond always seem to make the face look paler and the head bigger. it comes off generic and loses personality. I tend to stay away from blondes actually.

  • The majority don't, are you from 1973?

    • No, I'm from 2792, I came back in a time machine just to ask questions on this site :P

    • Nicee. Are they helpful to your time?

  • Ummm we're not

    • You might not be, but this idea did not come out of no where. The majority of men do prefer blondes, not that they don't like other hair colors, but blond does catch their attention. Maybe it's a subconsious thing, but I'm not trying to argue. I just want to know the reason why blond is the preference.

    • wow, you are really out of order. I do not appreciate your insults, you are way out of line.

    • By the way, Grow Up!

  • I think their hair looks lighter as in thinner and more fine and soft so they look more feminine. When I say hair I mean all their body hair from the eyebrows, to arm hairs, and of course more intimate areas. I'll admit I'm a sucker for blond hair and blue or hazel eyes.


What Girls Said 6

  • I am blond, and I actually find that guys (I know, at least) are more attracted to girls with darker hair. I actually hate the face that being blond, has that whole "ditzy, trashy, dumb", kind of stereotype and that men seem to like us just for looks. Because some are the complete opposite.

    • I agree, stereotypes are never EVER in anyone's favor. I've had my share, I'm red headed.

    • It sucks. To the point where, you don't want to be what you are.

    • it does, most red heads are stereotyped to be pale and short scrawny with freckles. I'm not freckled, pale short or scrawny.

  • I think it's kinda true. My friend dyed her hair blond and even I find her prettier. But I think it only works for pale white girls, because she was brunette before and her hair looked kind of unhealthy and thin for her skin tone, as soon as she changed her hair colour it matched better with her skin colour and her hair looked fuller and healthier and a lot prettier.

  • Well you answered your own question.

  • It either depends on the man or the girl herself. I think us brunettes are lead to believe that blond is more attractive because "Blonds have more fun" and all the sex symbols, like Marilyn and Pamela and Hefs "Girls next Door" are all "blond" but I personally have found that men love dark hair. My man loves my dark auburn hair =)

  • dark skin, dark hair, dark eyes are highly attractive.

    pale skin, pale hair=not attractive

  • My opinion is that the majority of girls in the sex industry (porn, strippers, Playboy) are the blond Barbie doll looking girls with huge t*ts, tiny waists and a love of sex so that's why men prefer them.

    However, it's wrong to generalize so I think that you can't help what kind of person you're attracted to physically. You just know. It's just personal preference.
