the fair-haired one

The fair-haired one is a cliche term which is used to label someone as being a liked, pleasant or favored person. This is spoken when someone favors fair haired people over those with darker shades of hair like brown or auburn, but prefers men or women with blonde hair. It is an older phrase that is now used more as a cliche or even slang term for fair-haired people being superior to other hair colors.
