Gentleman prefer...Brunettes?!

Recent research by social network site Badoo, polled 2,000 men and the results showed that 60% preferred Brunettes. Blonde bombshells such as Pamela Anderson just don't cut it apparently! Does this surprise you?
I must admit, Raven haired beauties such as Megan Fox & Angelina Jolie have shown that staying away from the bleach can be just as attractive. As I discussed in a previous post, when thinking of Brunettes, most think of healthy, glossy hair. Maybe this sways the male vote? After all research has shown that whilst women look for an older man for stability, men look for a younger mate as means fertility and health.
I think the most iconic Blonde, Marilyn Monroe, who men undoubtedly found sexy gave us women the idea that Blonde meant attractive and has paved the way for our love affair with Blonde.
Pixie Lott, Britney Spears and a whole gaggle of celebs go mad for Blonde, even Cheryl Cole lightened up a few shades recently - though I don't think Ashley is picky!
Other research has shown that whilst men do find Blonde women attractive, they'd rather marry a Brunette. So is a Brunette seen as more sensible, settling down material?
What do you think? If you were (or are!) a man what would be your preference? 
And I wonder what they think of the current Ombre trend?!


  1. I've been both and can honestly say I get loads more male attention as a black haired chick than I did as a blonde. x

  2. I've been every colour under the sun, definitely got the most attention as a black-haired chick. Now I'm natural and boring, hair dye just seems too dangerous.

  3. I have always been brunette and never ever wanted to dye my hair blonde. I personally love dark hair.
    You do hear of a lot more men prefering brunettes now I think in the 80's blonde was big but it has changed.
    I think it just depends on the man's personal taste.
    I hate it though when peple say blondes are more fun, brunettes more sensible and redheads are fiery because surely it comes down to each individual personality and not their hair colour!

  4. I've been both, and I think I get more attention as a brunnette than a blonde - although I think it's done to confidence too. I prefer being brunnette, so I'm more confident.
    I also prefer brunnette women, don't know why, but I think it's prettier - and as you say, it's often glossier xx
