Brunettes are perceived to earn more money, are thought to be more intelligent, and are considered to be sexier than women with any other hair colour according to this post I stumbled across online. And while it makes for an interesting read – it cites not one but six robust research studies to support it’s claim – as a life-long brunette with many close blonde girlfriends who’re richer, smarter and constantly cause whiplash in men, I’m taking it with a grain of salt.
But I know this much is true: Dark hair shows grey hair sooner. Dry shampoos and some mattifying hair powders can leave us looking like we’ve got a bad case of dandruff. And eyebrows are everything.
Here’s 3 of my favourite beauty finds that have kept me from looking like a Frida Kahlo impersonator, and are worth adding to your brunette beauty kit, stat.
