Why Does Everyone Want Light Hair?


Greetings peeps!

I hope you’re all having a great day!!! I am! So today I am here with not only my opinion, which I always give, but also actual facts so it’s not just me talking and blah blah…

And here it comes…

DISCLAIMER: This post isn’t meant to offend anyone. I have nothing against people with blonde hair or just light colored hair, all hair colors are amazing! I’m just questioning why people tend to like lighter hair colors…

I mean, how many people do you know what don’t dye their hair? Most adults do, and by that I mean women, cause it’s usually women that dye their hair. And what color do people usually dye their hair? Yes, blonde.

I looked it up on the internet and here’s what I found:google hair

I mean, there’s a lot of blonde adults out there, and everybody knows being a blonde adult isn’t very common; if you’re born with blonde hair, when you’re an adult it turns brown, as well as if you’re born with brown hair, it will eventually turn black. It’s life.

I think what happens is that many people had blonde hair as kids and teens, and then when it turned darker, they started dying it blonde.

I think we can all agree on the fact that people dye their hair lighter colors than their natural hair color. I mean, not a lot of people dye their hair darker than it is.

Now… to to give more data to our perspective, let’s ask people on social media!!!

I asked people on my instagram stories 2 questions:

  1. I asked them whether they preferred light or dark hair.
  2. I asked them whether they thought society prefers light or dark hair.

*btw i did this last year, that’s why I don’t have bangs in the pictures, I wanted to make this article for research project class at the time, but I couldn’t cause the teacher told us to talk about towns lol*

Let’s analyse:

I thought it would look better with some graphs, so here you go:

Wow, I feel so professional with these statistics 😝 actually no

I think we can all notice the proportions better. I’m surprised that people said they preferred dark hair, I thought it would match the other statistic. I think the second one makes a lot of sense, most people prefer light hair, by far.


Share your thoughts with me!

Was this post lame? Did I need to do more research? I think so. Do you think graphs look professional? Do you prefer light or dark hair? What do you think society prefers? Tell meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I liked making it! I’ll make more stats posts in the future, promise! I hope y’all have an amazing day/night and an amazing week!

Massive hugs!

  1. This post hit home because I want purple/pink hair but I don’t know if I’d ever do it as would probably be very damaging having to bleach it first. I have a thing about phases and I reckon this is just one of them. Think I might just buy a wig and see what it looks like πŸ˜‚ My mum has always had blond hair and I’m not sure if it’s darkened over time as I see her everyday so don’t really notice the difference πŸ˜‚ You should definitely do some more statistics posts as this was a lot of fun to read! πŸ™Œ Great post πŸ’•

    • Yeah I think our hair gets darker as we age, but yeah, because you see your mum everyday you might not tell the difference. And omg I wanted to have blue hair when I was 13 *I still kinda want to lol* but I’m also scared of how my hair is going to react to bleach. I suggest you do a transition and get your hair lightened progressively
      And thank you!!!! I’ll definitely do more statistics posts!!!!! πŸ˜€ ❀

      Btw I'm so sorry for the late reply 😦

  2. for me, I am quite comfy and satisfied with the dark one ~ maybe because here in our country, it is the most preferred one. Also, I will probably get a beating from my mom if I dyed my hair. HAHAHAHAHA 🀣

    • That’s great to hear, cause everywhere I go it seems like people prefer lighter hair, and that’s cool, but I felt like no one liked darker hair, which was a little sad. Yeah omg my parents would also kill me if I dyed it lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
