Blonde women earn more than brunettes or redheads, a new study in Britain has revealed.
According to the study, based on a survey of 3,000 women in Britain, the average blonde earns some 23,150 pounds a year, versus 22,586 pounds for brunettes and 22,327 pounds for redheads.
In fact, to be specific, blondes pocket an average of 564 pounds more a year than women with dark hair - and 823 pounds more than those with ginger tresses. But it makes no difference if the colour is natural or from a bottle.
Despite this, more than half of blondes claim their firm "does not take them seriously", 'The Sun' reported.
Meanwhile, dark-haired women are the most likely to work late, according to the survey by Superdrug chain.
Director of Toiletries Simon Comins was quoted by the British tabloid as saying, "Over a lifetime earning 600 pounds more a year can really add up, so blondes are having the last laugh."
