Who on planet earth, told you that you have to be blonde in order to be gorgeous? They lied. Think
of some of those past beauties that we are familiar with, who all have brunette hair. Everyone raved over such movie queens as
Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren and Hedi Lamar. Moving into the present, we have Cindy Crawford, Selma Hayek, Amanda Peet and Jessica Alba.
Whoops! We better scratch Jessica (the traitor); she moved over to the other side and is now a strawberry blonde; of all the nerve!
There is, Monica Bellucci, Selma Blair, Teri Hatcher, Jennifer Lopez and Demi Moore. Shall I go on? I think you get the picture. And,
you think you should be a blonde? What's up with that! You could be one of the most attractive brunettes that have ever gravitated
upon our earth.
What do brunettes have, that blondes don't? Well for one thing, their new growth never shows,
because it isn't against light hair. A faithful brunette has brown on brown. Hey, most blondes have blonde on brown, unless they are
covering up a little gray. I call them grayettes but everyone knows that doesn't count, because no matter how gray we become, we
always see our hair as the original color, whether it is through the old bottle of tint or through the way we are thinking. It is
an amazing and ironic nature of women. They can have volumes of gray in their hair that could fill a salt shaker, but they will
still see themselves with the color of hair they once had as a child. Is there some sort of youthful secret that some of us do not
know? When the gray hairs come; do they suddenly become color blind, even while having their hair colored, or is this denial?
There are also those who have tinted their hair for so long, they never really knew their natural
hair. Don't laugh, you could have been a natural blonde and never knew it! Or, if you did have an inkling of the color of your hair, I
guarantee you will forget your color by the time you get a little bit of age on you. Besides, by that time, it just won't matter and
you won't care. As far as that goes, no one else will care either.
Brunettes have a special place in the Brunettes Hall of Fame and as the steadfast and unmovable
heroes of today, never have to worry about touching up their blonde hair. Can you honestly remember the last time someone came up to
you and said: "I have a brunette joke" to tell you, and then go on to ask how many brunettes it takes to screw in a light bulb? I
don't think so. Just because blondes seem to look more peachy creamy than a brunette, doesn't mean that brunette's aren't peaches
and cream material. Look at the contrast between a dark brunette and her lily white skin! Picture the mysterious allure that a
brunette has when she is wearing a large hibiscus on the side of her hair that matches her sarong! I do declare, as I lift my
hand to my ear, all of a sudden I'm hearing music in the background, because this gives me such visions of old time movies with
Dorothy Lamour, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. Yes, of course I realize you are probably too young to have seen their old films (I was
just a baby myself), but you can catch them on TV if you are ever interested or you can rent their DVD's. (At least tell me that
you can remember hearing about the Beatles and I won't feel quite as old) I have yet to see any blonde that can look as appealing
as Cher singing "if I could turn back time," (definitely, one of my favorites) with her rich long dark brown hair. Another thing, I
haven't seen is blonde flamenco dancers, unless they are a professional. Come to think of it, I wonder how many blondes we would
see enter into hysterics tomorrow if bleach and tints were outlawed. We could wake up one morning and hear "Tints and Bleach
Outlawed" on the way to work. You never know! There is a real "green" movement out there, so better store up girls!
Just to make things a little bit more confused and complicated, there isn't anything like an
attractive redhead striding confidently through the door, wearing a slinky dark green satin evening gown and dripping with diamonds
from her ears all the way down to her hands. Madonna and Britney Spears would have nothing on this lady. What is it about red hair
that hairstylists love to work with? Is it the color red, or is it their texture? A natural redhead has enough hair to bottle and
sell, to everyone in your neighborhood and mine.
