Whether you were born with fair hair or beat nature to go gold, here's why being blonde is the best...

1. You have more fun

Everybody thinks blondes do anyway, so you act like you do. And then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy… Let’s party!

 

2. You’re not dumb

Again, everybody thinks you are, so it’s a surprise when you open your mouth and fully-formed sentences come out. A bonus at job interviews.

 

3. You don’t go grey

Well, some blondes do, eventually. But not as early as brunettes. And it’s much harder to hide grey hairs when your hair is dark.

 

4. You’ve got more hair

Blondes have a higher strand count than any other colour – an average of 146,000 per head in fact (see? we’re not dumb). So blonde hair has more body and bounce. That’s science.

 

5. Your hair grows faster

So you’re not stuck with a bad haircut for long. And because of number 4, blondes look great with short hair.

 

6. Dry shampoo does the business on you

Because it’s basically pressurised powder, it blends in better on blonde hair. On brown hair, it can look like dandruff.

 

7. You stand out in a crowd

Only 2% of women are born with fair hair, so you’re often the only one in the room. People remember you as ‘the blonde’. A bit film noir, which is cool.

 

8. You look amazing with a tan

Fake or real, a tan is tops on blondes. Why wouldn’t sun-kissed skin be a perfect compliment to sun-coloured hair?

 

9. You can totally be a rock chick

Just don’t dye your roots for a while, blast in some dry shampoo (see number 6) and voila! The next Debbie Harry aka Blondie.

 

10. Every colour suits you

Black, white, red, blue – prints or pastels. And of course, blondes are always pretty in pink. Grey isn’t so good, but who wants to wear that depressing shade?

 

11. Gentlemen prefer blondes

So you get the nice guys opening doors and buying diamonds for you. And if you prefer bad boys, just do a number 9 and bring ’em all to your yard.
