Why do blondes get more attention?

I used to be blonde up until a few months ago, recently went dark brown. I swear I got a lot of attention as a blonde, but now with brown hair...I get a lot less stares from guys. Women say, "oh you look better with brown hair". If this is so, how come i get less attention from guys?

  • when I went blond every guy did look at me. Funny
    I look a lot better as brunet. I think they look because you stand out,But that does not mean you look good.

  • I dont notice a difference between the stares i get when i'm blond compared to brunette. I think it has more to do with your confidence than anything. Maybe you just FEEL better as a blond, therefore attract more attention?

  • I'm naturally blonde and get looks quite a bit. I went brunette a couple falls ago and I also noticed that I didn't get as many looks (and I was glad because it creeps me out when men gawk). I went back blonde I just couldn't get used to being a brunette after being a blonde all my life. I get the looks again but I just ignore them

  • I believe it is true about the blonds. But try changing your makeup to make sure it matches your new look and consider a couple copper highlights or some red in with the brown to soften.

  • Probably just how you feel when you have dark hair. You likely feel more attractive with blonde hair. But I wouldn't let guys looking at me more be the motivation to go blonde again. Women would be a better judge of what looks good. So do whatever you feel makes you look the best.

  • I guess I don't see the problem here lol. I have dark hair and fair skin with light brown eyes. For whatever reason, all the perverts that live within a mile radius of my house find that sexy. It pisses me the hell off when I go out and some dude is like "Oh gurl you look like so good." No get out dude...
