8 Myths About Blonde Hair That Need To Stop Immediately

After almost 10 years of being a dark brunette, I started bleaching my hair blonde about a year ago. Dark blonde is actually my natural color, so I didn’t think going back to that would be that big of a deal. I’ve never been a big believer in all of those crazy hair myths out there, so I didn’t think anyone would see me any differently. I was surprised to find out that I was kind of wrong.

My highlighted blonde hair has definitely gotten me more attention than my dark hair ever did – I get compliments on my hair color all the time, and I notice people looking at it more often as well. Now, this could just be because I have an amazing colorist who knows how to make my hair look great, but studies have shown that blondes attract more attention.

The other difference? It seems like people weirdly believe all of the blonde myths floating around out there. A few days ago, I made a silly comment that didn’t make sense, and someone with me snorted and said, “Must be the blonde hair.” When a random person saw me carrying a designer bag, he said, “Your shopping habits totally match your blonde hair” (WHAT that literally made no sense). And whenever I go lighter, everyone around me always says, “Are you having more fun yet?” I’m pretty sure they’re joking, but guys, I just don’t know.

The point is, there are tons of hair color myths out there, especially about blonde hair. Let’s get rid of some of them! I’m sick of people assuming I’m ditzy or ridiculous simply because I have light hair. Someone’s hair color doesn’t mean they have to have a certain personality. Here are 8 myths about blonde hair that definitely aren’t true:

Which of these myths have you never heard? Do you agree with any of them? What did I forget? Tell me in the comments.
