Indeed, many artists have benefited from the decisive step towards blond hair. Actresses Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Kate Winslet, singers Madonna, Britney Spears and many others not only changed their hair color to blonde for the sake of their profession, but also increased their popularity.

In addition, owners of blonde curls rightfully occupy the first place in the list of men’s favorites, as their fatal and touching beauty captivates at first sight. The owners of the “golden crown” even have their own holiday, which is celebrated on May 31 – Blondes’ Day. In Ukrainian show business, many of the most popular artists have blond hair.
