Berlin (dpa) - Dark-haired men have a better chance with German women than their blond counterparts, according to a new survey.
A man's chances of making out with a woman would also increase if he were clean shaven and had manicured finger nails, according to the health magazine Apotheken Umschau.
Every second woman in Germany is attracted to clean-shaven men with short hair and manicured nails, said the survey conducted for the magazine by the GfK research institute.
Of the 1,031 women questioned 59.6 per cent found a man with manicured nails attractive, while 50.9 per cent said they did not like men with stubble on their chin.
Some 53.9 per cent said they preferred men to have short hair, with a mere 4.7 per cent saying they were attracted to males with a long, flowing mane.
Only 17.2 per cent of those questioned found blond men attractive. A total of 28.9 per cent favoured brown-haired men, while 34.7 per cent preferred men with dark hair.
