2. Along the same lines, brunettes are seen as more intelligent. Not to say that it’s a fact or anything, but that’s what people perceive. We don’t hate it.

3. Dark roots suck, but you can easily play it off as an ombre. Smart, right?



4. Cash money. Surveys suggest that brunettes earn higher salaries than blondes and redheads.



5. Bobby pins are invisible. Blondes don’t have that luxury.

6. So many natural blondes have made themselves known for their dark tresses. Katy Perry, Leighton Meester, Olivia Wilde — SO many celebrities went over to the dark side.
