Of all the silly arguments I’ve ever had (Hulk vs. Superman; Mary Ann or Ginger; Samantha Stevens or the cast of ‘Charmed’), the question of which hair color is quantifiably superior is perhaps the goofiest.  While a certain Canadian friend touts her crimson tresses, there’s no doubt that Fonzie’s dark hair works for him, and in the spirit of silly and spirited discussion, I think it behooves us to target today’s chromatic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, misquoted”) often leans towards “not platinum”, but that’s mostly my Emma Stone crush talking, asking: Which hair color might you prefer for an imaginary perfect paramour: Blonde Brunette or Red?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Of those choices offered, brunette. That isn’t saying blondes aren’t cute, and plenty of redheads are “YOWZA!” but I seem more drawn to ladies with darker hair.

    However, if we’re going for my IDEAL fantasy girl, she would literally be a “Fantasy” girl. She wouldn’t have hair, she would have lekku (head tails/tentacles for those who don’t know Star Wars lingo). Or she would have an “unnatural” hair color, like green or purple. My fantasy crushes are usually not human or are mutants or some other altered human. And one of my real life crushes always dyes her hair vibrant colors, so there is that too.
