According to recent reports, blonde-haired women actually earn, on average, seven percent more than women with other hair colours. This is even despite their reputation as being ditzy and dumb.
A study in Australian journal ‘Economics Letters’, noted that being fair haired can boost your pay by up to £1,600 a year. The study, which surveyed 13,000 women, revealed that blondes consistently did better when it came to their salaries, even across outside factors including height, weight and even education.
Blondes also marry wealthier men – on average, marrying men who earn 6% more.
