Blondes suffer with job prospects by having too much fun

London, Jan 25 : The age-old saying that blondes do have more fun seems to be putting a dent on their career, a new study has revealed.

Britain's leading facial mapping team has revealed just how important looks are when it comes to success in the workplace, and it seems having fair hair doesn't actually fare all that well, the Daily Mail reported.

The research team, led by the UK's leading facial mapping expert Dr Chris Solomon, was tasked with analysing the facial features we associate with success and leadership in the workplace, and the results found that those with straight dark hair are considered most likely to succeed.

Respondents ranked faces in terms of perceived business acumen and leadership qualities, taking into account a range of facial features such as the shape, size and position of the head, eyes, lips and overall symmetry.

The findings revealed that the shape of the male jaw line is a key metric when it comes to perceived leadership qualities; indeed we associate "hyper" leaders with having a very strong jaw line.

Conversely, faces that get narrower towards the jaw line were perceived as weaker and less credible.

Interestingly, Steve Jobs and Peter Jones were cited as business leaders who fit the leader profile, and David Cameron and Nick Clegg most closely match the "leadership at work" prototypes.

Future leadership hopeful and current Mayor of London Boris Johnson scored lower for his down-turned eyes and fleshy jawline.

Steve North, General Manager of TV channel Dave who commissioned the research, said: "We all know that first impressions count but this is the first time that a study has actually delved into the facial traits that help us make those decisions." (ANI)
