The Bleached Blonde

Do German women have a “thing” for bleached blonde hair?

It seems so. I noticed this during our vacation on Mallorca and at first I thought it was something about the sun and wanting to have that “sun-kissed” look. (FYI — these pictures aren’t mine, but turned up after I googled bleached blonde. I didn’t have enough foresight about this column to take pictures of the bad dye jobs.)

This is pretty typical of the dye jobs you see. The hair is clearly NOT blond — those dark roots just keep on showing through.

And actually there are even worse dye jobs — I mean really horrendous ones, where the person who did it should be put in jail.

I can’t tell if this girl below  is trying to eat her necklace because she’s so nervous about this horrible dye job, or if it’s just a nervous reaction to what she is seeing in the mirror.

You can tell this gal has been dying here hair for years. Its texture is similar to that of a broom stick, which she might as well be riding with that look.

Why do people do this to their hair? Do they really think it looks good? I wonder if there is any data from the hair dying companies as to which country uses hair color products the most. I bet Germany is right up there.

Maybe they are trying to fulfill a stereotype – you know the blonde haired-blue-eyed German.  We’re supposed to look like this so let’s actually look like this?

Dunno. It can’t be because they believe blondes have more fun.

Everyone knows that’s not true.
