Redheads Have Fewer Hairs. Blondes are lucky; on average they have the largest number of hairs on their head. While blonde women have an average of 150,000 hairs, the average redhead counts only 90,000 hairs on her head. On average, women with brown or black hair count about 110,000 or 100,000 hairs, respectively.
