The history and psychology of hair colour

June 09, 2016 2 Comments
Hello everyone!

ver a year ago I wrote a post titled A typical brunette? in which I mentioned common stereotypes about hair colour.  
Numerous stereotypes associated with our hair colour, texture and style still exist today.  Salons Direct created an infographic which looks deeper into the history and psychology of hair colour.  

They've taken a look at the stereotypes surrounding hair colour and have worked with a leading colour psychologist to examine these stereotypes.  They have also conducted a research and found some very interesting results supporting these preconceptions, including:

• Brunettes are considered more intelligent
• Blondes are considered the most attractive
• Redheads were seen to be the feistiest

A typical brunette?

April 11, 2015 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

At one point or another, we've all heard the stereotypes about hair colour.  Such as; “Blondes have more fun”, “Redheads are wild”, and “Brunettes are trustworthy”.   Of course, every now and then we do fall into those categories, but can hair colour really have an effect on our personality?  Totally, a new hair colour can enhance your mood, style, and confidence, as well as change the way other people perceive you.

Now, personally, I have dyed dark brown hair.  I'm a natural brunette, but my natural colour is a couple of shades lighter than my dye.  I'm considering changing it to a soft medium brown, for the warmer months ahead.  If you too are looking for your perfect hair colour check out  Madison Reed's  website for hair dye advice.   Madison Reedis a hair care company that specialises in hair dye.  Their dye is a healthier salon-quality alternative.

When it comes to stereotypes, the "problem" for brunettes is that a lot of people consider us to be plain and boring.  With brown hair being so common,  it is easy to go unnoticed as a brunette.  However, people also tend to take us more seriously, because of the old "blondes are dumb, brunettes are smart" stereotype.  Additionally, brown locks project sophistication, thoughtfulness, and inner strength.  Darker colours also suggest stability.

And now, let me tell you a bit about my personality.  In a nutshell, I'm introverted, independent, thoughtful, creative, analytical, tolerant, open-minded and free-spirited People who do not know me tend to think I'm shy.  When I was younger the fact that everyone assumed I was shy just because I'm more of a listener than I talker used to bother me.  Yes, I'm an introvert but I'm not shy.  I'm an INTP (introversion, intuition, thinking, perceiving)!  Nowadays, I really couldn't care less about what people think of me.  One of my favourite quotes is this one by Dr. Seuss:  "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

So, you tell me; am I a typical brunette?  Do I conform to the stereotypes?  Leave a comment and let me know.

Have a great day!
