What Part Does Hair Color Play In Your Life?

Back in early 2008 the hair color gurus at Clairol shared a very interesting survey.  Clairol conducted the survey to determine what perceptions people had regarding certain hair colors.

Ever wondered the best hair color for going on a job interview?  Or what is considered the sexier hair color?  Read on to get the inside scoops.

While this survey was first made available in three years ago, many of the survey results are most likely still as relevant as they were back then.
