Woman who tried out seven different looks on a dating website to find out what men REALLY want claims blondes attract rich, older suitors – but going make-up free won’t get ANY matches
- Hayley Leeanna, from Peterborough, tried each look out for two weeks at a time
- Found glasses attracted polite men, but businesswoman look wooed only bores
- Also tried wearing no make-up in snaps, but found nobody tried to message her
A woman claims the majority of men prefer brunettes while rich, older gents favour blondes after trying out seven different looks on a dating website.
Hayley Leeanna, from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, decided to trial different outfits and traits on her profile after struggling to understand what men wanted.
During the experiment, she spent two weeks embodying looks ranging from ‘busty brunette’ to ‘bubbly, party-loving blonde’ and ‘gym bunny’.
She found the most genuine men when she was most like her true self, and a couple of ‘lovely’ men while wearing glasses because they thought she was an intellectual.
Hayley, 36, said: ‘If you want someone rich, blonde is definitely the way to go – that look attracted lots of sugar daddies who wanted to wine and dine me before taking me to bed.

‘The most genuine men came forward when I was most like the real me – either showing my age in a revealing dress while out on the town or as a keep fit fanatic in my gym gear.
‘I also met some lovely men when I wore glasses because they thought I was a bit of an intellectual.
‘The two looks which really bombed were when I wore glasses and when I went completely without make-up as a total slob.

‘I also tried the businesswoman look in a smart suit but all the guys I met were total bores.’
She added: ‘If you want to have sex, it sounds obvious but you need to be make clear in your pictures that you are out for a good time. So accentuate the cleavage, smile and look like you are up for a laugh.
‘You should also use some pictures of you when you were younger to hide your real age – everyone is doing that online.’
Hayley spent six months completing her experiment, using IllicitEncounters.com, a dating website for married people.
Here, she runs through the different looks and the very different men they attracted…
Hayley was approached by the most men when she channelled a busty brunette look – but most of the men were only interested in sex
Best for: Men looking just for sex
Hayley said: This was far the best look for creating a buzz and getting lots of attention.
Sadly a lot of men were only interested in one thing and made absolutely clear that they expected sex on the first date after we got chatting online.
I tended to get attention from younger men who were keen to exchange sexy pictures.
I did date three of the men who contacted me with this profile and we had a lot of fun but it didn’t go anywhere.
The fitness fanatic was approached 43 times when she used older photos from when she was blonde, and the men she attracted tended to be older and richer
Bubbly, party-loving blonde
Best for: Rich sugar daddies
Hayley said: The key difference when I used a picture from a few years ago with me as a blonde was that the men who came on to me were older and richer.
Obviously they were married because this was IllicitEncounters.com – they had made their money and were looking for a fun-loving bit on the side.
They loved the fact that I was holding a wine glass and gave the impression I was a party girl.
I dated two men who contacted me with this profile picture. One was lovely and we had a great weekend together in Marbella staying in a five star hotel.
Hayley said: ‘I am happiest when I am in the gym and I found a few kindred spirits when I used some work-out pictures of myself on my profile’
Best for: Men looking for companionship
Hayley said: I am happiest when I am in the gym and I found a few kindred spirits when I used some work-out pictures of myself on my profile.
I had men wanting to meet up at the gym rather than a bar or a restaurant which was a nice change. I met some great guys but I was conscious that I was not making enough of my feminine side.
Hayley, 36, found that men were more genuine when she went on the dating website just as herself because ‘they could see there was nothing contrived about my profile’

Best for: Looking for love
Hayley said: I like enjoying the high life and sharing some intelligent conversations with older men. I found the men were a little more genuine when I went on as myself – they could see there was nothing contrived about my profile.
I used full length pictures of myself rather than one that just focused on my bust and they showed my real age more clearly.
I got fewer younger men coming on to me than I did with the cleavage pictures and more men who were interested in a proper relationship.
Hayley was only approached four times when she used photos of herself wearing glasses – although the men were much more polite

Best for: Nice guys
Hayley said: If you are dating online, ditch the specs – that is my advice. I was worried I would not get any approaches at all but four men came on to me and they were all absolutely lovely.
The spectacles created a whole new persona for me and that was reflected in the responses. The men were much more polite but sadly none of them had a lot of money.
When she dressed as a businesswoman, Hayley attracted a ‘bunch of bores’ rather than the classier type of guy she expected
Best for: Boring guys
Hayley said: It’s not really me but I straightened my hair flat, wore a smart business suit and had the persona of a successful businesswoman.
I thought it might get me a classier type of guy but it just attracted a bunch of bores. This definitely didn’t work.
Nobody approached Hayley in the two weeks when she used photos of herself without making. She said: ‘I thought men might like the fact that I didn’t care about my appearance but who wants to date a slob with spots?’
Best for: n/a
Hayley said: If you are dating online, get out the slap – no one want to see you when you are not looking your best.

You can really enhance your profile picture with the right make-up and hairstyle.
