According to the Daily Mail, researchers sent a woman into nightclubs in three different wigs (blonde, brunette and red) to see which one drew the most interest from dudes. Now, the interesting thing is that she was approached most often as a blonde (the numbers: 60 times as a blonde, 42 approaches as a brunette and 18 as a redhead), but when they questioned all 130 men later, they found that she was rated most highly for attractiveness and intelligence as a brunette.
