New Study Debunks "Dumb Blonde" Theory

You may want to think twice before making one of those "dumb blonde" jokes...

A new study out of Stanford University found there is no link between hair color and intelligence and personality. The study found that golden locks are the result of just a single letter of genetic code, meaning one letter can determine if you are blonde or brunette. No correlation between a person's intelligence and hair color was found.

The study also suggests eye color and hair color are not genetically related, meaning the coveted blonde hair-blue eyes combo are not genetically linked.
