the age: blonde magnetism:
"I got wolfish looks from men and complicit smiles from blonde women, who seemed to acknowledge my beaconlike hair as if I was now a member of an elite club," she writes, recalling that she was suddenly given preferential treatment at the market as well as at the London Library."

might sound overboard, but it's true.
it's a shocker how much you're noticed when you're blonde, and since i've been growing my hair and hence have more of that blondeness, it's been getting even more severe. quite funny.
interesting article, and definitely a book i'd like to read.
