Celebrities play a huge role in swaying the general mass to make certain life decisions. Choosing hair color shades is no different. Someway or the other, we are influenced by this simple choice. It's a universal belief that blondes have 'the most fun', brunettes are 'good girls', redheads tend to lean towards the 'hot-headed' side, and women with black hair are 'exotic'. Whether you are a blonde, brunette, redhead, or have black hair, you are someone important.
But society judges our personalities based on the color of our hair. Can they? Should they? Why don't we take a look at what these hair colors mean to the rest of the world and make our own decisions accordingly.

Natural Hair Colors

Does a person's natural hair color speak a story about them? Can we get an insight about who an individual is and how he/she thinks based on their hair color alone? Although these questions seem to lean on either side, it's tough to make the final call. People wish to find the truth in first impressions or what society has made them to believe. Either way, the notion is quite fascinating.

Did you know that only about 1-2% of the population have red hair? Pretty special, if you ask me! But when we talk about trying to understand the personality of a redhead, we generally tend to lean towards what movies and television have always portrayed in the past. We believe that redheads are strong, independent, sexy, mysterious, and opinionated.
Don't believe me? Take a look at how Scarlett Johansson for a minute. Her character, Black Widow in the comic books, is depicted as a femme fatale. And when you think about it, when we think of the color red, our minds immediately image hot, temper, anger, or even danger. So why wouldn't people associate redheads with all these qualities.

If you think that only Asian people have black hair, then you're mistaken. Apart from Asians, people of Southern Europe, North Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa have black hair too. So what is society's take on people with black hair? Well, for starters, the impression is that they are exotic, trustworthy, beautiful, intelligent, strong, and sultry.
In my opinion, every woman is beautiful and intelligent. Then why are women with black hair considered of possessing exotic beauty? Think Cleopatra and you'll have your questions answered.
