Found a pretty intersting study. But study like this is all depend on the statistics. So, I am not sure if that is really true. It is a interesting study

David W. Johnston published a paper in Economics Letters.


Population: 12,686 Caucasian women ages 25 and older living in the United States. [light blonde (1.6%), blonde (19.0%), light brown (21.8%), brown (51.2%), black (2.4%) and red (4.0%)]

Measure: hourly wages, their marital status, their husbands’ hourly wages, and their education level.

Control: height, weight


1. Blondes earn 7% more

2. Blondes marry men who earn 6 percent more.

I think there are couple parameters should also considered

1. occupation

2. geographic
