Blonde bombshells like Marilyn Monroe used to be regarded as the ultimate fantasy but now, according to a new survey, men are opting for edgy brunettes instead.
Instead of the stereotypical Scandinavian blonde look, men are now demonstrating a preference for long brown locks, although blue eyes are still top of their list.
With caring qualities also top of the list, the survey revealed that a profession as a doctor is most appealing among the male masses.
Pairing brains with beauty, male members of the service said that their ideal woman also likes to go swimming to ensure her physique is toned and fit.
And when she’s not busy playing with her stethoscope or splashing around in the pool this lady also makes time for her naughtier side, inking tattoos on concealed body parts.
According to this research celebrities like Sienna Miller, Cameron Diaz and Blake Lively are not in the wishlist any more and instead Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie and Zooey Deschanel fit the bill.
The verdict for men was equally surprising as women don’t want chiselled abs like Ryan Gosling or Ryan Reynolds, they’d rather see a relaxed dad bod under the car bonnet.
Women too prefer brown hair and blue eyes, but men need to remember to keep it short. Longer locks like Johnny Depp, Jared Leto or Colin Farrell are a big no with the ladies.
The survey didn’t however specify about the beard which, paired with a chunky knit cardigan, has become a popular look with celebrities like Chris Hemsworth, Kit Harington and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Women also expressed a preference for a suited and booted type, who works in an office and spends his free time with his dog. (Legend star Tom Hardy has got it right posing for pictures with pooches).
This research is limited to the UK.
