Recently, I stumbled upon this two-year-old article that backs up my predilection for women with brunette hair over women with blonde hair, an article waggishly titled, “Science Don’t Lie: Dudes Dig Brunettes over Blondes.” Its author (a fellow male) goes on to list some female celebrities that he reckons better as blondes or brunettes. I’m happy to say that the writer, considering 17 female celebrities, finds their brunette manifestations preferable to their blonde ones a clear majority of the time.

but she ought to be
|XiXi Yang: before (beautiful) and after (not so much)|
|A beautifully buff and brunette Brooke Burke|
bids so long to summer! (She’s not mentioned
in the blogpost. This is just an excuse to post
a picture of her.)
Update, November 7, 2014: For a photo shoot of a Mean Girls cast reunion in this week’s Entertainment Weekly, Rachel McAdams has dyed her hair blonde again. It appears that my blogpost had no effect whatsoever on her tonsorial choices. Oh, the horror! Oh, the humanity!
