Allison Williams: “I’ve walked this planet as a brunette with total anonymity”

FFN_vcv_52321939 - Allison Williams: "I’ve walked this planet as a brunette with total anonymity"

On the major difference she noticed when she became a blonde:

It’s so instant. Boys are just aware of a blonde head of hair in the room. I’m positive. I’ve walked this planet as a brunette with total anonymity. And now I walk into a party and people are like… They’re like “Oh a blonde person with b~~~~!” Y’all males are real simple. Even simpler than I thought.

On maintaining her new light locks:

I am exhausted. For all of you who have dyed hair, you are heroes. This is exhausting — who knew? There’s so much maintenance! It’s a whole thing.

… says Girls star Alison (28).

I can totally confirm that, i had long wavy blonde hair and went short and dark recently. Everywhere I went men looked at me and now I’m pretty much a ghost, which is pretty nice but wow it’s been a humbling experience LOL

You didn’t get my point, of course it isn’t a fix all. In the end I’m just saying that if you have two equally pretty women walk into a room at the same time and one has beautiful blond hair, she’ll catch more men’s eyes first, which doesn’t mean that with a closer look they won’t realize that the other is just as pretty.

Too bad, she looks so much better as a brunette.

She has lost a lot of weight and it shows poorly. She looks like a woman in her late 40s. And the blonde hair looks horrible.

same. i wonder if she’s being paid to say blonde makes her sexy by some hair company.

ill tell you one thing – blonde is EXPENSIVE…$$$…

Nice example of confirmation bias. She probably expected more attention by going blonde, so of course she will notice people looking at her more.

I went blonde and noticed the same thing she did. I’ve also shaved all my hair off. I’ve changed my style up a lot over the years and it’s not confirmation bias. I didn’t expect more attention from men but I noticed it. People treat you differently depending on how you present yourself.

She looked so much better as a brunette. The blonde is shocking – so I’m sure she’s right about getting noticed more.

She looks better as a brunette Imo. But I agree about blonde hair part – I think blonde hair catches more attention. But it doesn’t mean it suits everybody.

I can confirm this as a natural blonde who went brunette for a while. Most men are just programmed to notice it quickly, especially long and wavy/curly blonde hair (as opposed to pulled back in a pony or bun)… On a side note, she looks even thinner as a blonde (if that was possible)

We as a society really need to get over the whole white +blonde=perfection. I’m not saying she was implying that in her comment, nor am I saying that people are evil for finding white blonde women attractive. But in an age where whitening creams are best sellers in India, we need to do some evaluating. I think this is connected to the message that girls get that any male attention is good attention. Why should I fawn over the attention of some men who see nonwhite women as subhuman or the object of a disturbing fetish?

Bea

I totally subscribe what you say. How long do we have to keep the old clichés? The young-white-dumb-blonde girl stereotype. You think you live on a globalized, open minded society and then boom! You realize the bimbo always gets all the attention. Maybe it is a male-oriented media problem?

I agree! And the said thing is that even though men revere/pay attention to women who embody the bimbo stereotype, these men don’t even like or respect these women. Look at any comments from men on “bimboesque” women ranging from Kate Upton and Emily RataI’msosmart to Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. These men want to have sex with them but don’t see them as people at all. I think the only way for this to end would be for both men and women perpetuating sexism externally and internally.

Agree with all. ANd must add: men want to have sex with all women, not just bimbo ones. But because they see the bimbos as objects, they’ll vocalize those desires, because there’s no consequences, because they have no respect for “those” women. Whereas the women they respect, they keep those thoughts a little quieter.

That’s such an excellent point! I remember reading a comment section somewhere where a man said “Oh I couldn’t imagine having sex with her, I respect her too much.” So apparently sex is something that happens to expendable women.

@sweet christmas SO TRUE everything you said. This is why I stopped styling myself to be attractive and just style myself to my own aesthetic and convenience. I realized that when straight men compliment my appearance, it’s not really a compliment at all IMHO.

Angelina Jolie was considered the sexiest woman alive and was brunette.
Same with Elizabeth Taylor, the beauty of her time. And Kate Middleton was worshiped. Jacki O, Natalie Portman and Kardashians. For every blonde there is a brunette of equal status.

The blonde myth is exactly that – a myth perpetuated to get women to spend money on touching up roots at a salon every 4 weeks for $70

Yup, and Sofia Vergara, Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr, Aishwarya Rai (Miss World), Miss Universe 2016, Iris Mittenaere, Megan Fox, Irina Shayk… heck even Emily Ratajkowski is brunette! the list goes on and on.

I personally feel she looks better as a brunette. She does seem to look younger as a blonde in the first photo, but she still looks better in my opinion as a brunette.

Blond hair is more easily noticed because it’s a light colour and thus light reflects differently on it than it would on darker hair, so people (men and women) will probably notice more a blond entering the room versus a brunette entering the room. But I wouldn’t go as far as saying blonds get more attention or are found to be more attractive. They’re just “seen” first. It’s purely mathematic!
I have blond locks and have experienced going brunette in the past and have experienced the difference in eye-cathingness too).

She use to look beautiful. Her weight loss and new hair style makes her look way older. She has a long face and when people with long faces lose weight their face can look hard and too defined (I have a long face and everybody tells me My face looks way better with 20 extra lbs.).

Seems like people with nothing else remarkable going on always feel the need to go blond to be noticed.

Uma

What an idiotic comment. Way to be biased and to promote prejudice and misogyny, as we don’t have enough of those. There are plenty of reasons why women dye their hair blonde, suggesting that it is done just because you have nothing else remarkable going on is extremely rude. I wonder what extensive studies you made to reach that conclusion. Oh, wait, it’s just your biased opinion. With probably some sour grapes added, ’cause there is no rational explanation why you would put down like that a huge chunk of the population.

What an obnoxiously sexist comment. If it was the flipside it would sound so bad: “Now that I have a 6-pack, girls are always looking at me. Yall simple females are even simpler than I thought”. Gender equality means gender equality so lead by example. It’s neither cute or funny to put down men OR women with insulting stereotypes.

Yes, we are all taking about her hair but did anyone notice that she looks like she’s floating in the first picture? Where are her legs?

Maybe it’s because i live in a pretty white country with loads of blonds, but definitely not true for me. I’m average pretty looking person, and i definitely go unnoticed a lot 😀 People constantly forget having met me, or forget my name, or just don’t pay any attention to me on a social setting. It’s mostly to do with my pretty subdued personality when in large crowds or new people, but just to say blonde doesn’t make you more visible somehow. I would say dressing very feminine and having perfectly done hair and make-up does. At least where i’m… Read more »

Most blondes are fake blondes. Blonde hair is overrated. A pretty face and a nicely shaped body covered with well fitting clothes is much more important to men than the color of your hair. People who bleach their hair have major insecurity issues that they try to cover up. One example that comes to mind is Marlyn Monroe who dyed her hair platinum blonde in order to gain recognition. Behind her carefully enhanced and marketable 60s’ facade, she suffered from major depression and insecurity which led her to commit suicide. Her blonde hair did not solve her hunger for true… Read more »

“People who bleach their hair have major insecurity issues that they try to cover up.”

WTF? That just may win the award for the most idiotic comment made on this site. I’ve been every color imaginable, including blonde, because I like to change it up and try out new looks. I’m sure there are many girls with similar reasons for going blonde, and for some, it just suits their personality or features better than brunette. My hair is light brown, so I can easily go blonde or brunette, but either way I will have roots that require maintenance.

I like the brunette better, natural is always more beautiful to me. She looks great both ways of course, but i just love brunettes! Her and Amber Heard look like sisters- they should play sisters in a movie and switch back and forth between blonde and brunette, would be fun!
