So blondes really do have more fun: Men claim brunettes make the best wives, but fair haired women are better in bed

Blondes may have more fun — but it comes at a price. Men don't trust them.
A study found that while fair-haired women are considered to be the most adventurous in bed, brunettes are seen as more reliable in a relationship ... and more sexy.
In a poll of 1,500 men, more than 60 per cent thought dark-haired girls were the most trustworthy and loyal, compared with just 14 per cent of blondes.
The result is men feel brunettes make the best wives.
Some 61 per cent said they would prefer to marry a brunette over women with any other hair colour.
Brunettes were also the most popular choice to have a deep and meaningful conversation with (63 per cent).
While 34 per cent of men like the blonde-haired glamour model look, 42 per cent said they actually found brunettes sexier.
More than half (51 per cent) also think women with dark hair are better kissers, while 47 per cent think they are the most sensual.
Nevertheless, blondes take the prize in the bedroom stakes — 36 per cent of men considered those with light hair to be the most wild, while just 31 per cent think of brunettes in the same way.
Commenting on the study for Philips Sensual Massagers, spokesman Karen Moore said:
"Blondes have always had a reputation for being fun, carefree and adventurous and it seems that can also be applied to relationships, as men think they have the best skills when it comes to the bedroom.
"But brunettes seem to have every other aspect of a relationship sewn up, right down to the kissing.
"However, it's interesting that despite thinking blondes are better in bed, men actually see brunettes as being the more passionate.
"This research stands those with dark hair in good stead for a long-term relationship as they look likely to be the best at keeping their other half entertained and happy as well as managing a home and looking after children."
The study also found men see women with dark hair as more maternal, best at looking after family finances and the best cooks.
