Did you see the InStyle Sexy Poll in the June 2008 issue? Thousands voted online in their 11th annual survey, and drumroll please, brunettes were voted a sexier hair color by a whopping 76% to 24%. Blond was the runner-up, and there was no mention of redheads (discrimination!) on the page.
HUZZAH! Come on, you know you want to fondle our luscious, brunette locks.
Oh, you don’t? Well, let’s implement our own Whoorl Sexy Hair Poll on this lovely Monday morning. (Actually, it’s hotter than hell. Is anyone else on the West Coast melting?)

Dude, that’s total redhead discrimination! And plus, everyone knows we’re better in bed! ;)
(I promise I didn’t make that up! As a redhead – I have heard them ALL.)

I colored my hair brown once……my children cried.

Hi Whoorl – I voted for brunettes (partial to)…two questions for ya – 1. When I’m up for my Hair Thursday, would you suggest an overall color to hide my underneath greys – Oy, I’m so done with them!
2. I was looking at one of your headers, and I was wondering, is it a group of ties placed one on top of the other? Too cool.

Brown is SEXY.

I voted Redheads to be contrary (okay, maybe a bit more because I was a redhead when I was born), but I honestly can’t decide! It always depends on the person in question for me I guess.
And yes, it is terribly hot on the West Coast right now, and humid (in Vancouver). I feel like my skin hasn’t been truly dry for the last three days. :(

Obviously I had to put my vote in for the ginger population – represent!
That said, I think a lot of people find redheads sexy and unique, but stereotypes abound about how much trouble we are, or how short our tempers are, or how slutty we are – so redheads are perceived as too much of just about everything. All I can say to that is THOSE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY’RE MISSING. ;)

Brunettes! We’re way hotter.
I am a puddle right now, it’s so hot. I tried to play ball with my dogs this weekend, and they looked at me like, “Are you fucking nuts, woman?”
JackieMay 19, 2008 at 9:22 am
What about Silver ? I vote Silver ….
GiselleMay 19, 2008 at 9:25 am
Uhm. Are we talking everyone or just girls? I would go for brunette or red for girls, but blonde for guys, hands down. I love guys with longish blonde hair. I swoon.
janetMay 19, 2008 at 10:03 am
As a natural blonde I could have voted for that…but no, I choose redheads!
LauraMay 19, 2008 at 10:14 am
I think brunettes more often tend to look exotic, whereas blondes are often considered ‘cute’. At least this is what I’m telling myself in order to feel better. :) I think it’s usually true of guys, too. I prefer blondes because they are more likely to have that baby face that I just looove.

as a natural blond who dyed her hair red for ten years, i had to go with redheads. but i do think brunettes are gorgeous, too!
Mary SueMay 19, 2008 at 11:32 am
Redheads! Seriously, we should get something after being picked on all the time….
I live in Portland and I LOVE how hot it has been lately. We were almost at a 100 on Friday, and after six months of cold, I could never complain about the sun! (Although, being aforementioned redhead does mean that I went through about two bottles of sunscreen while wearing my sunscreened shirt and a hat this weekend.)
JoraMay 19, 2008 at 11:35 am
Yes! I’m melting too!
DanielleMay 19, 2008 at 12:02 pm
Boo. I just voted for blond because I am one, but I always secretly wish I could pull off being a brunette. I’m just too pale and freckle-y.
