Hair color has always been important to me. 

I was born a blonde (yes that's right, with an 'e'). But time and puberty weren't kind to me. 

Thus every six to eight weeks I pay homage to the god of double-processed ash-blonde hair.

Oh sure, I've strayed. I've been a redhead and a brunette. I even enjoyed a recent foray into pastel pink. 

But I'm always happiest when I'm blonde, blonde, blonde. It's my hair color supreme. 

It turns out, with good reason. 

A 2015 study conducted by Skyn Condoms found that your hair color actually tells quite a bit about your love life, and I don't just mean when you accidentally get food in your hair on a date. Here's what they found.

Here is what your hair color reveals about your love life, according to research:

1. If you have black hair:

You're more likely than any other hair color to use free and paid dating sites to get a date. That's right. You're also the most likely (at 65%) to have a one-night stand. You rate yourself higher than any other hair color for sexual confidence, which seems like a 'duh' based on what we've learned about your life so far. 

2. If you have blonde hair:

You love hooking up in interesting places, including cars, bathtubs, restrooms, and more. About 40% of you feel really confident about your bedroom abilities. That's like an F, do better blondes! You come in second at 61% for most likely to have a one-night stand. I hope this is not related to your lack of confidence. That would make me sad.

3. If you have red hair:

You're the least likely hair color at 57% to have a one-night stand. You're the MOST likely hair color to be into bondage and role-playing, you selective lover, you! You straight up DO NOT internet date. Fair enough, the world isn't kind to gingers. 

4. If you have brown hair:

You're just as likely as a blonde to have a one-night stand. You're willing to try paid dating sites more than free, you smart creature. You're more confident than blondes about your abilities in the bedroom, but at 44% confidence, you could work on that a bit.
