16 Fascinating Reasons Why Brunettes Are TOTALLY Awesome.

We recently told you about all the reasons it's pretty great to be a redhead. While you may have appreciated those interesting facts, if you're a brunette, you might have felt a little left out.

Never fear, brown-haired angels: Now, we have 18 reasons why brunettes are pretty great, too. But first, let's get a little background.

Throughout history, the brunette has been associated with being a "temptress" or "siren." They were thought to attract men while maintaining their mystique. In other words, brunettes were often characterized as "intense,"- the type of woman who could make you fall in love and scare the hell out of you at the same time!

We're not sure if that stereotype holds true to all brunettes, but here we have some interesting information that might - #14 is really surprising!

#1. Brunettes have a head full of carbon.

Dark hair has higher carbon content than any other color.

#2. Brown hair isn't rare...but it doesn't mean brunettes aren't extraordinary.

As you may have guessed, brown is the most common hair color.

#3. Blondes don't always have more fun.

Many celebrities go from blonde to brunette - actress Sofia Vergara is a natural blonde who dyes her hair to a sumptuous chocolate brown.

#4. Brunettes need more Disney representation.

Belle from Beauty and the Beast is the only brunette Disney princess. That explains why you loved her so much.

#5. Brunette-blonde rivalry is a common trope in film and media.

Books, tv shows and movies show an ongoing rivalry among blondes and brunettes; the most popular and enduring rivalry is that of blonde Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge from the Archie comic books.

#6. Brunette comes in many forms.

Brown hair can range from chestnut, to mahogany, to chocolate. All of it looks great to us.
