Blonds, brunettes, redheads
Blonds, brunettes, redheads

Blonds, brunettes, redheads... the subject lends itself willingly to platitudes.
While blond hair represents fragile evanescence, a woman with flame-coloured hair on the other hand, could change your fortune dramatically. Brunettes however are soon relegated to the clichéd status of a Latin background. 
It is also a question of proportion. Red haired women are rare, or Irish. Their personality and their hair are fiery, and magic, whether black or white, is never far. 
It would seem that statistically blonds love the camera as much as the camera loves them, as if the film had its own source of light. So, if brunettes cannot sparkle like blonds, they have to arouse curiosity. Photographers and film makers have used and abused this fact to the point of creating a myth.
