How to Succeed with Brunettes

Please choose a format above.

June 10 1967 – President Lyndon Johnson signs Proclamation 3700, designating "the week beginning June 11, 1967, as 'National Succeed With Brunettes Week' and directing 'the appropriate Military officials to begin training Naval personnel in appropriate dating techniques including, but not limited, to: Walking on sidewalks, putting on coats, ordering food, and shaking hands.'"

Okay, not really, but the U.S. Government did spend our tax dollars on a 16-minute movie explaining the do’s and don'ts of dating brown-haired women! 

"Success with brunettes and blondes or anybody is built upon respect. And being a gentleman is about commanding respect. How to succeed with brunettes? Be a gentleman!" 

Bridget and Mary Jo could not agree more! Join them as they forget the cares of the tumultuous 60’s and help you learn How To Succeed With Brunettes!
