Greetings Infomaniacs,

Dr. Tony Fallone noted in 1997 that hair color is the root of a person's personality. Blondes are typically more outgoing and lively and are perceived as more feminine than women with other hair colors. According to Fallone, being blonde is not a hair color, but a state of mind.

And the numbers seem to prove him right. While just 1 in 20 white American adults is naturally blonde, virtually 1 in 3 white adult females dye their hair a shade of blonde.

Enjoy!
