What is brown hair?

Brown Hair

Brown hair is the second most common human hair color, after black hair. It varies from light brown to almost black hair. It is characterized by higher levels of the dark pigment eumelanin and lower levels of the pale pigment pheomelanin. Its strands are thicker than those of fair hair but not as much as those of red hair. People with brown or black hair are often referred to as brunette, the feminine form of the diminutive form brunet from brun (brown, brown-haired or dark-haired), the masculine form. Brown hair is common among populations in West Eurasia and North Africa, especially among those from Central Europe, Southern Europe and West Asia, where it transitions smoothly into blackish-brown and black hair. Because of migration from Europe from the 16th to the 20th centuries, brown-haired people are also found in North America, South America, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Siberia, and other parts of Asia and Oceania.

Famous quotes containing the words hair and/or brown:

    do not sleep
    he wants to climb out of the toilet when you sit on it
    and make a home in the embarrassed hair do not sleep
    he wants you to walk into him as into a dark fire.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    We gave ‘em wings to fly and they rained death on us. We gave ‘em a voice to be heard around the world and they preach hatred to poison the minds of nations. Even the medicine we gave them to ease their pain is turned into a vice to enslave half mankind for the profit of a few. Ah, Janet, dear, don’t you see? Every gift that science has given them has been twisted into a thing of hate and greed.
    —Karl Brown (1897–1990)
