The study polled 2,437 single men from various cities across the United States and  concluded that 35 percent of men prefer blond hair, while 23 percent chose brown. Twenty-one percent chose brond (we didn’t even know that was a real thing until we read this) which is apparently a combination of brown and blond, a la Gisele Bündchen. Thirteen percent of men said red hair made them want to come-hither. And when it comes to length, the men had similarly strong opinions, with 67 percent claiming long hair was the hottest look on a woman.

When asked to select which female celebrities they thought had the most attractive hair, men thought these women had the hottest locks:

1.       Taylor Swift – 56%
2.       Beyonce – 51%
3.       Jennifer Aniston – 49%
4.       Gisele Bündchen – 47%
5.       Kate Hudson – 45%
6.       Eva Mendes – 42%
7.       Gwyneth Paltrow 38%
8.       Angelina Jolie – 35%
9.       Mila Kunis – 33%
10.     Isla Fisher – 27%

“It seems that American men just can’t get enough of women with long blond hair, as the look received the most votes,” said Mark Pearson, chairman of CouponCodes4u.com. “Not surprisingly then, when asked to name the celebrity that they felt had the most attractive hair, Taylor Swift was voted top of the list!”

Men who want you for your hair - also expect you to have their conceived stereo-type personality to go with that hair.
