From the darkest ash blonde to the palest blonde, the various hues of natural blondness constitute about 2% of the world's population.
The fake blonde, on the other hand, can be seen enhancing the heads of around 70% of women. (At least, off the top of my head, that’s the last figure I can remember, but it may have even been higher. In other words, most women who colour their hair, colour it blonde, which is the sole reason why the world appears to be overwhelmingly full of blondes.)

Or more accurately, the end of hair as we have pretended it to be.
Will the government inadvertently ruin the lives of fake blondes across the nation? Will they reallly be prepared to dig-in, perhaps scaring away thousands of tourists because of the extreme and unattractive regrowth problem that will cover our shores?
I’m thinking not, but we’ll have to wait and see whether vanity or irrational bans on commonly used chemicals will win the day. Maybe we'll see the emergence of illegal back alley trading in hydrogen peroxide, and only the seriously wealthy will be able to maintain their blondness.
