A good reason to go blonde

Telegraph story Economics Letters blondes study

Okay, so we can officially put the blonde jokes to rest. According to this story in the Telegraph, being blonde pays off BIG TIME:

“A study in the journal Economics Letters reported that having blonde hair boosts pay by £1,600 a year for a woman earning £22,000 a year – the average salary in Britain.”

And as if THAT weren’t enough:

“….in addition to their preferential pay packets blondes also marry wealthier men, who earn an average of six per cent more than the husbands of other women.”

No fair!
