What Does Your Hairstyle Say About You?


Melanie Richard’s Hair Boutique in Peterborough Asks – What Does Your Hair Colour & Style Say About You?

Are You Blonde? Brunette? Redhead? Does it matter how you wear your hair? Do others make snap judgements about your personality based on your hair colour? Melanie Richard’s Hair Salon in Peterborough asks – what does your hairstyle say about you?

What Do The Experts Say?

Research shows that people still associate different hair colours and hair styles with personality ‘types’. Blondes are traditionally seen as flirty and less intelligent, redheads are feisty and fiery, while brunettes are serious and mysterious!


According to a study by sociologist Dr Rose Weitz, you can even be judged by your hairstyle. Straight hair is worn by women who are viewed as serious, professional and straightforward – and those with curls are believed to be carefree and approachable! If you have short hair, expect to be seen as out-going, brave and independent, while the perception for longer haired lasses is that they are sexy and fun.
