  • No longer are blonde hair, blue eyes and a super skinny figure the perfect attributes of a woman. A new study shows that men now prefer brunettes.

    Contrary to popular belief, it seems that boys do not prefer blondes, as new research reveals men are more attracted to brunettes.  
    The study conducted by Badoo asked 2,000 British men what features they find most sexually attractive in a woman, which revealed 40 per cent preferred blue eyes, compared to 29 per cent who prefer girls with brown eyes.
    Surprisingly, it’s not just British men who prefer darker haired woman to blondes. The study was also conducted in France, Spain, Italy, America and Brazil and all countries found darker haired women more sexually appealing than their blonde counterparts.
    The study also cleared up the notion that British men prefer super skinny body types such as Kate Moss and the Middleton sisters, with 39 per cent of men saying they found the ‘average’ dress size, 12- 14, more appealing.
    Taking all those attributes into account, it seems that Hollywood A- Listers such as Megan Fox, Mila Kunis and Angelina Jolie fit the bill to a certain degree, with blue eyes and brown hair.
