What is it about Blondes?!
Social reasons why men may have preferred blonde women is that light hair colour is a marker of youth. Since many Northern European children have blond hair, which darkens as they mature, blond hair could arguably be associated with youth and therefore, fertility. Blonde as a colour has also been associated with light and gold, things that people find attractive and desirable. Lighter color hair is usually more scarce or rare (exotic), arguably increasing its desirability.
Many of the most famous fairytale stories centre on a blonde character. Goldilocks, Cinderella Rapunzel etc. From the 1400's with Lucrezia Borgia to modern times with Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Farrah Fawcett, Brigitte Bardot, Pamela Anderson etc. blondes have dominated Western Culture's fascination for a very long time.
The Oxford English Dictionary records that the phrase "big blond beast" was used in the 20th century to refer specifically to men "of the Nordic type" (that is to say, blond-haired).
In European fairy tales, blonde hair was commonly ascribed to the heroes and heroines. Benign mythological creatures such as fairies and elves were often portrayed as young and blond.
Is it a sign of basic evolution to be drawn to someone with sunlit hair? Is there some primal urge that makes our subconscious think blonde hair makes an individual more pure, closer to lightness and perfection? Or is it as simple as our eyes being naturally drawn to a bright & shiny object?!
