What Your Hairstyle Says About You

What Your Hairstyle Says About You

Are You Blonde?  Brunette?  Redhead?  What Does Your Hair Colour & Style Say About You?

Does it matter how you wear your hair?  Do others make snap judgements about your personality based on whether you’re a redhead, blonde or brunette?  What does your hairstyle say about you?

Research shows that people still associate different hair colours and hair styles with personality ‘types’.  Blondes are traditionally seen as flirty and less intelligent, redheads are feisty and fiery, while brunettes are serious and mysterious!

According to a study by sociologist Dr Rose Weitz, you can even be judged by your hairstyle.  Straight hair is worn by women who are viewed as serious, professional and straightforward and those with curls are believed to be carefree and approachable!  If you have short hair, expect to be seen as out-going, brave, independent and self-assured, while the perception for longer haired ladies is that they are sexy and fun.
