Where characters with fair hair can be seen more frequently than expected for what should be a melting pot population. Specifically, you can see a disproportionate number of blondes for the setting when a show has no fewer than half of the female Caucasian cast being blonde. It can include the whole Caucasian cast -- and sometimes [[DarkSkinnedBlond more than that]], too. Similar to BlondeBrunetteRedhead, but on the other end of the scale. The thing is that film casters believe the audience finds blond hair to be beautiful, so if you want to be a movie star, it helps to look good with fair hair. It doesn't help that natural blonde tends to be darker with streaks of brown, whereas these ladies will have heads full of golden yellow hair that clearly came out of a bottle. This situation can be perfectly justifiable - a family drama where most family members have blonde hair - but usually is not.

Any combination of the [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold sweet]], malicious, or {{dumb|Blonde}} blondes becomes Plenty of Blondes because you can't contrast something with itself. Each can be EveryoneLovesBlondes. Compare MonochromeCasting if it's one race in what should be a melting pot population, and PhenotypeStereotype when non-Caucasian media believes this is true of Caucasians. This may be justified if some of them explicitly [[DyeHard dye their hair]]. May or may not be involved in {{Mukokuseki}} works.

* The Wrestling/{{WWE}} "Divas" always have a large number of blondes on the roster. While the women are very ethnically diverse, almost all the Caucasian women will be blonde. The brunettes actually outnumber them but most of them are from ethnic minorities.

* Starting with the Diva Search competitions, most of the non-blondes were from other races (with the exception of FieryRedhead Wrestling/ChristyHemme, who is actually a natural blonde). It's pretty rare in WWE for there to be a Caucasian brunette. They've even started favouring DarkSkinnedBlonde girls as well since black Wrestling/AliciaFox and mixed race Wrestling/{{Layla}} temporarily went blonde and Latina Wrestling/EvaMarie was asked to dye her hair blonde (but opted to red haired instead).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' has Rita, Lori, Leni, [[spoiler:Lucy]], Lana, Lola and Lily Loud. {{Justified}} due to genetics, since Rita is a blond and Lynn Sr. is a brunette, which accounts for all the hair colors in the family [[spoiler:since Lucy's black hair is dyed]] except Lincoln's [[MysticalWhiteHair white]], and even he apparently got his from his grandfather.

* The producers of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' seemed to love making the normally brunette Halliwell sisters blonde at several points during the series. Each of them has been at one point. Piper wore a blonde wig to dress up as [[TheWizardOfOz Glinda]] (who is red-haired in the movie) for Halloween. Prue's future self was blonde in "Morality Bites". Paige wore a blonde disguise in "Baby's First Demon" and had strawberry blonde hair for the majority of season 6. Phoebe meanwhile dyed her hair blonde in season 3 and also got it magically when she was turned into a Banshee, LoveGoddess and Genie, and finally when she dressed up as Lady Godiva. Oddly enough we didn't get a blonde main character until season 8.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'', as all the important female characters are blonde (except one redhead), whereas most of the extras are brunette in order to help them stand out.

* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' and her two aunts are all blonde haired. Oddly enough her father (their brother) is brunette and the third Aunt Vesta is redhead. It's parodied in one episode where a potion turns Salem's fur blonde.
