Study: Blondes More Likely to Cheat on Partners
One study drops a big blond bombshell.
Blondes may have more fun, but they might just have more relationship issues, too.
According to a recent study, hair color plays a surprising role in women's infidelity. When it comes to cheating, blond women make up a staggering percentage of the unfaithful, while a much smaller percentage of female cheaters are brunettes.
The study, carried out by support website CheaterVille.com, found that a whopping 42 percent of women who admit to cheating also happen to have blond hair. Redheads came in second at 23 percent, brown-haired cheating ladies made up 20 percent, and only 11 percent of women stepping out had black hair.
Apparently, there's a color spectrum for infidelity.
The website conducted the study based on the online postings submitted by a cross sample of its members.

And while founder James McGibney admits that this isn't the most scientific of studies — baldness or hair coloring were not taken into consideration — the results are still pretty interesting, especially with a number as high as 42 percent.
And let's not leave out the men. CheaterVille found that 40 percent of male cheaters have brown hair, 32 percent are raven-haired, 20 percent are blond, and a mere 5 percent are redheads.
Also interesting, McGibney discovered that 43 percent of both male and female victims of infidelity were brunettes.
He said of the findings:
"From Veronica vs. Betty to Ginger vs. Mary Anne, we've always favored one look over another. But now our research gives us a tempting look at how hair color might play a role in infidelity - and that's nothing to brush off."

You can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
