Blond or fair hair is a hair color characterized by low levels of the dark pigment eumelanin. The resultant visible hue depends on various factors, but always has some yellowish color. The color can be from the very pale blond caused by a patchy, scarce distribution of pigment to reddish "strawberry" blond or golden-brownish "sandy" blond colors the latter with more eumelanin. Because hair color tends to darken with age, natural blond hair is generally very rare in adulthood.

Naturally-occurring blond hair is primarily found in populations of northern European descent and is believed to have evolved to enable more efficient synthesis of vitamin D , due to northern Europe's lower levels of sunlight. Blond hair has also developed in other populations, although it is usually not as common, and can be found among natives of the Solomon Islands , Vanuatu , and Fiji , among the Berbers of North Africa, and among some Asians.

In human culture, blond hair has long been associated with female beauty. Aphrodite , the Greek goddess of love and beauty, was reputed to have blond hair. In ancient Greece and Rome , blond hair was frequently associated with prostitutes, who dyed their hair using saffron dyes in order to attract customers. The Greeks stereotyped Thracians and slaves as blond and the Romans associated blondness with the Celts and the Germans to the north.

In western Europe during the Middle Ages , long, blond hair was idealized as the paragon of female beauty. The Norse goddess Sif and the medieval heroine Iseult were both significantly portrayed as blond and, in medieval artwork , Eve , Mary Magdalene , and the Virgin Mary are often shown with blond hair. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, scientific racists categorized blond hair and blue eyes as characteristics of the supreme Nordic race.

In contemporary western culture, blonde women are often negatively stereotyped as sexually attractive, but unintelligent. The word "blond" is first documented in English in [1] and derives from Old French blund, blont , meaning "a colour midway between golden and light chestnut ".

The word "blond" has two possible origins. Some linguists [ who? However, linguists who favor a Latin origin for the word say that Medieval Latin blundus was a vulgar pronunciation of Latin flavus , also meaning "yellow". Most authorities, especially French, attest to the Frankish origin. The word was reintroduced into English in the 17th century from French, and was for some time considered French; in French, "blonde" is a feminine adjective ; it describes a woman with blond hair.

Each of the two forms, however, is pronounced identically. American Heritage 's Book of English Usage propounds that, insofar as "a blonde" can be used to describe a woman but not a man who is merely said to possess blond e hair, the term is an example of a " sexist stereotype [whereby] women are primarily defined by their physical characteristics. The masculine version is used in the plural, in "blonds of the European race", [5] in a citation from Penny cyclopedia , which distinguishes genuine blondness as a Caucasian feature distinct from albinism.

By the early s, "blonde moment" or being a "dumb blonde" had come into common parlance to mean "an instance of a person, esp. The OED gives "brunet" as meaning "dark-complexioned" or a "dark-complexioned person", citing a comparative usage of brunet and blond to Thomas Henry Huxley in saying, "The present contrast of blonds and brunets existed among them.

Based on a genetic research carried out at three Japanese universities, the date of the genetic mutation that resulted in blond hair in Europe has been isolated to about 11, years ago during the last ice age.

A typical explanation found in the scientific literature for the evolution of light hair is related to the evolution of light skin , and in turn the requirement for vitamin D synthesis and northern Europe's seasonal less solar radiation. In this way, high frequencies of light hair in northern latitudes are a result of the light skin adaptation to lower levels of solar radiation, which reduces the prevalence of rickets caused by vitamin D deficiency.

The darker pigmentation at higher latitudes in certain ethnic groups such as the Inuit is explained by a greater proportion of seafood in their diet and by the climate which they live in, because in the polar climate there is more ice or snow on the ground, and this reflects the solar radiation onto the skin, making this environment lack the conditions for the person to have blond, brown or red hair, light skin and blue, grey or green eyes. An alternative hypothesis was presented by Canadian anthropologist Peter Frost, who claims blond hair evolved very quickly in a specific area at the end of the last ice age by means of sexual selection.

The earliest known individual with the derived allele is the ANE Afontova Gora 3 individual, dated to 14, years ago. A study reported seven Mesolithzic hunter-gatherers found at Motala , southern Sweden , dated to 7, years ago, as the earliest known individuals in whom the modern Scandinavian phenotype, combining light skin, blue eyes and blond hair, was combined.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Where has this been all my life?? I've got gross thighs and spider veins that no one needs to see and I know it! The rest of me is ok! I DREAD being in public because swim skirts and shorts don't hide my cheese and distract from my legs Stumbled on this and bought one in each length in size Large I wear size 12 jeans as I'm 5'9".

I fully thought I'd end up with the longer one, but this size is so flattering with the little flounce at the back that it hides me where I need it and it's SUPER cute!!! Returned the other length and I'm going to get a couple in this length I think! There is no way I could wear an XL The little pocket was handy for our locker key at the water park and a mini lipgloss!

You saved my life! I've been looking for a swimsuit that covers more than boyshorts bottoms, less floaty than a caftan, less complicated than a sarong, and more attractive than a towel.

And swimskirts just don't fit right. Thought I had tried everything, until I tried the RipSkirt. It fits, it looks great, and it's simple to use. Several reviews said these skirts were "true to size" and I agree IF you go by the , , etc.

I'm 5'3", lbs. A note that the "blush bestrewn" color appears very pink in the pictures, but it is NOT; it is a very orange coral. I was hoping it would be more pink than it was, so I may return it. The only bone I have to chew with the rip skirt design at all is probably something that couldn't be changed without sacrificing its wonderful versatility: I actually wear these in the water, and if the wave action in the ocean is strong at all, it will tear your rip skirt right off it's happened to me and I barely managed to catch it and re-fasten it while standing in waist-high strong surf--that was a little embarrassing as I definitely had an audience.

If the closure were with two buttons, or with a strong hook and eye or something, the waves couldn't pull this off. But I realize that the velcro makes this fit a huge range of waists in each size and also most people probably wouldn't actually wear this into strong waves as I did. It is a fantastic cover-up as it is and overall probably the best I've found provided of course you have swim bottoms underneath it.

The idea of racial superiority, which once dominated the field of anthropology, has now been completely and unanimously rejected by modern scientists. In contemporary popular culture, blonde women are stereotyped as being more sexually attractive to men than women with other hair colors. Madonna popularized the short bleached blond haircut after the release of her third studio album, True Blue , and influenced both the s fashion scene as well as many future female musicians like Christina Aguilera , Lady Gaga , and Miley Cyrus.

Originating in Europe, the " blonde stereotype " is also associated with being less serious or less intelligent. The British filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock preferred to cast blonde women for major roles in his films as he believed that the audience would suspect them the least, comparing them to "virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints", hence the term Hitchcock blonde.

The notion that blonds are less intelligent is not grounded in fact. A study of 10, Americans found that both women and men with natural blond hair had IQ scores similar to the average IQ of non-blond white Americans, and that white women with natural blond hair in fact had a higher average IQ score Although many consider blonde jokes to be harmless, the author of the study stated the stereotype can have serious negative effects on hiring, promotion and other social experiences.
