Brunettes Are Sessy!

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?)

    Brunettes ARE Sessy! I am living proof ;)

    I have always loved red hair, though. Mine has a hint of it, sometimes I wish it were a bit redder.

    I have always been jealous of my best friends brunette locks and I have blonde hair. For me, it is partly texture, my hair is so fine and show every cut a stylist takes, but brunettes blend so well. And it is so much thicker. The grass is always greener…

    I voted for brunettes too.

    Mostly to make myself feel better.

    Sexy? A fabulous cut and a gorgeous smile.

    I’m a golden blonde who has tried to be every shade of brunette and red. It just isn’t going to happen. I’m sexiest in my natural golden state with a few highlights.

    I AM. I am! melting. Or have been melting, past tense. Currently I am sitting in front of a large box fan stuck in a large window. Again.

    Also: proud to be a natural brunette, baby.

    It’s not the color.
    It’s how you wear it.


    However, I must say that I quite like my brown hair (with natural red highlights in the summer).

    When is the nightline segment going to air? Do you have a specific date? Perhaps I should just DVR it all week…

    Oh – Go Brunettes!!

    So I think being blonde is sexy, but the problem is everyone else who isn’t blonde has been trained to put us down and criticize us for our “roots” (and yes I mean NATURAL blondes). In reality, almost all blondes have some darker roots but are forced to highlight to cover them up or risk being pointed out …And then, the roots look so much worse growing out once you’ve highlighted them. So it quits being sexy. Does anyone else feel me on this one? I still think I am a sexy blonde though. Ha! Take that!
