An experiment (N = 581) investigated the impact of a model’s hair color on the ad-likeability. This resulted in a general preference for brown hair. Yet, the sex of the model seemed to impact this preference slightly. Although the preference for brown hair was valid for both male and female models, blondes were also preferred for female models. Especially women had a strong preference for brown-haired models while men seemed to lack preferences. The explanatory theory for these differences was homogamy while sexual imprinting did not seem to have much impact.
