    I see this look quite often on women.

    It's the over-tanned body and face with the bleached blonde hair. Oh, and the shimmery copper lipstick.

    Seriously, is there ANY guy out there that find that attractive? I see this look all over so I'm wondering if there is a special species of guy who loves this look.

    Doesn't do it for me.

    Incidentally, there's (almost ;) ) no bigger turn-off than a girl who appears to be brown from head to foot, but who turns out to be wearing a "skin bikini" when the actual bikini comes off :meh: .

    That's just laughable.

    A persons hair should never be lighter than their skin.

    Well, they won't go after that look if no one finds it attractive.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    I used to see 'em all over in Florida, which I figured was their natural habitat. Over-use of gold jewelry is another calling card of theirs.

    I've never seen a woman matching this description out with a guy, so I dunno who likes 'em. I guess they look good to some fellas after a few margaritas.

    Aside from being unattractive, women with that particular appearance look too much like Billy Sheehan.

    I like pale skins and dark hair.
    Needless to say, the blonde b(l)each girl leaves me cold.
    It's worth adding that this model ages very badly.
    At 40 they start looking very wrinkled and aged already while most brunettes still are in their primes.

    Wow....They have 'em in Europe?
  10. Oh the brunettes tan too.

    I just can't stand looking at people who are roughly the same colour as bacon. But the ones with blonde hair are just that much more frightening to me.

    This is true.

    Overly tanned blondes are not as hot as if they'd just had kind-of-a-normal tan or no tan at all. Blondes themselves are a fantastic creation of evolution...but too much of a tan is a really bad thing, even more so if it's a FAKE tan. Groooooooss.
  13. Big Yuck here...
  14. Good question.... and an equally simple answer too: NO. I think these delusional females get this ideal-of-beauty details you acurately described in the OP is a direct result of TOO MUCH TELEVISION. The media over-promotes this 'standard' of beauty on so many differant kind of shows.. that it reached the over-satuaration point years ago.. but for some reason women are still buying into it. :rolleyes:

    But it gets really ridiculous when I see asian or black women with blond hair.. getting boob jobs and even trying to get tans! :spit: :spit: :spit: (what an awful waste.. IMO)

    My sisters are fair skinned black women, and they tan. They all have natural blonde streaks in their hair and I must say (as much as it pains me in that sibling way) that they are all drop dead GORGEOUS! I am a light caramel toned black man, and I easily tan from direct or indirect sunlight (even snow). I tend to not mind the tanning effect to my skin tone, it adds a richness. I kinda get that "Coffee w/a touch of Cream" tone.


    FWIW, I don't like fake blondes of any racial background!
