dc.description.abstract This study was designed to determine if males treat blondes differently from brunettes in getting acquainted situations. Because previous research has shown that hair color is an important factor in the perception of an individual (Clayson & Maughan, 1986), it was expected that blondes would be asked questions pertaining to social situations whereas brunettes would be asked questions pertaining to school. Male subjects were given photographs of the same female wearing different wigs. They were given limited information and then asked to list their own questions and also to choose questions from a list that they might ask in order to get acquainted with the model. No significant differences were found between the two groups. Limitations of the study and areas of further research are discussed.
