The photo books titled Blondes; Brunettes; and Redheads (Chronicle) look back at playmates from the 50s, 60s and 70s and sort them by their haircolor.
Jim Petersen a Playboy contributing editor who wrote the foreword for each book says he initially wondered why the publisher didnt use modern women in the books.
The answer, he says, is because in the 50s few women changed their haircolor locks the way women do today.
And back then, he claims there were preconceptions about a woman based on her haircolor, summing it up as: A blond was a blond; a redhead was trouble and a brunette was stable.
These days, 75 percent of women color their hair, which means the carpet doesnt match the curtains.
But he adds, Nowadays, everyone is shaving their pubic hairs and they can be anyone under the sun.
