What Your Hairstyle Says About You

Do Those Blonde, Redhead, Brunette Stereotypes Still Exist? What Does Your Hair Colour & Style Say About You?

Does it matter how you wear your hair?  Do others make snap judgements about your personality based on whether you’re a redhead, blonde or brunette?  What does your hairstyle say about you?

Research shows that people still associate different hair colours and hair styles with personality ‘types’.  Blondes are traditionally seen as less intelligent, redheads are fiery, while brunettes are serious!

According to a study by sociologist Dr Rose Weitz, you can even be judged by your hairstyle.  Women with straight are often see as serious, professional and straightforward and those with curly hair are believed to be carefree and approachable!  If you have short hair, you may be viewed as brave, independent and self-assured, while the perception for longer haired women is that they are sexy and fun.
