Do blokes really prefer blondes?
IT seems that gentlemen do not necessarily prefer blondes, with a Match.com website poll revealing blokes would rather brunettes.
A survey in Bundaberg’s main street yesterday revealed the men here echo this sentiment, with five out of six people saying they would rather brunettes over blondes and red heads.
Cam Fraser said in his experience with women, brunettes seemed much more “grounded”.
“I’ve dated all sorts of girls and this has just been my experience,” he said.
“Blondes can tend to be a little unrealistic. I have two red head sisters and they seem to be more unpredictable and fiery.”
Mr Fraser said while he preferred brunettes, he did not think any man went without the blonde fantasy when he was younger.
“Every boy wants that trophy Pamela Anderson or Elle Macpherson type when he’s young,” he said.
Mr Fraser said in the end however, looks were definitely not everything.
“At the end of the day, it’s what’s on the inside that really counts,” he said.
“If you want to live with someone then you need the match of values and beliefs.”
Cut N Strut hairdresser Kacey Porter said the majority of people she had in the salon wanted their hair dyed blonde.
“We get a lot of girls going lighter,” she said.
“Most of them are between 15 and 20 years old and they seem to want the whitest, purest, ash blonde they can get.”
Miss Porter said she often had clients whose partner dictated the hair colours and lengths they were allowed to have.
“We have a lot of girls changing their hair colour for their men,” she said.
“Guys don’t seem to mind most colours as long as they aren’t too bright. They prefer subtler colours. Anything too bright seems to freak them out.”
