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.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
