*  62% of people think brunettes look more professional than blondes in the workplace

*  31% of blonde women have gone brunette to appear more intelligent in the office

*  38% of fair-haired women believe their hair colour has held them back in their career

*  38% of those who have changed their hair colour believe they are now taken more seriously by their boss
Go figure!!
