What color is your hair?

Postby GLDF » Sat Jan 18, 2020 5:20 pm

Like skin, the color of a person's hair is largely determined by the pigment melanin. Higher amounts of eumelanin causes dark hair (conversely, blonde hair is caused by less eumelanin) while more phoemelanin gives hair a reddish tint. Of the variations, hair with high levels of eumelanin is by far the most common. While some ethnicities are almost exclusively associated with one hand color (such as the stereotypical blond Scandinavian), many hair colors are found universally. The genetics are much more complicated than this though.

To the point, what hair color do you have and what are your thoughts about having that color? If you have any suggestions or clarifications, feel free to post. Keep it civil though, this isn't about asserting the superiority of your blue eyes blond hair master race or any bs like that.

Personally, I have dark brown hair, although it sometimes get mistaken for black. My other family members have pure black or a range of brown hair colors, so it's not surprising that my hair is in between. What about you?

My hair varies between brown and dirty blond after being in the sun for a while.

My hair is, I believe, about the darkest that can still reasonably called "blond". It's not brown, but it's certainly not a shimmering, pale, or otherwise light blond. I think some would term it "dirty blond".

In tribute to my childhood Golden Retriever, Cary. She lived 11 years of joy and love.
OVERVIEW - A small, gospel-run christian state. The national figure is Cary, the Golden Retriever. Previously pictured as a "miracle dog" and "vessel of Christ" who is presumed to have healed many sick people. Cary is the defacto head of state, but since she is a non-intelligent dog, she is merely a figurehead. The real leader is the head of the Gospel Church of Caryton.

My hair varies with the seasons/sun exposure.
In Winter or if I've been indoors a lot my hair is a medium brunette. In Summer or when I've been in the Sun a lot, my hair becomes dirty blonde and sometimes even a medium blonde by the end of a long summer. When I was little my hair was almost platinum blonde, which is weird when I look at old photos.

I like my hair, its unique. Few people can say their natural hair colour changes that dramatically. My hair is also thick and naturally straight. I wore it long with viking braids in HS (I'm a guy, for the record), and girls used to get super jealous of my hair and ask me how I got it looking so nice, which is hilarious.
I use NS stats for the most part, excepting where issues and stats dont make sense with my Nation's setting.

My Nation is roughly based on my actual political beliefs; it is a form of Socialist Republic, in which citizenship is granted for government service (either military or civil, think Starship Troopers), with a very heavy environmentalist and conservative bent.

That actually sounds just like mine; there are some old photos of when I was a kid and my hair was an intense yellow/white, almost platinum blonde during the summer months Since then it has become increasingly brown throughout the year and no longer has any visible blonde coloration except in very bright lighting.

Medium brown, maybe just a touch lighter than that (I'm of Germanic descent). Sometimes I see the occasional gray, but nobody else seems to. I've had similar hair my entire life and I don't mind it.

I couldn't have been older than 15 when I noticed a hair that looked a little gray in my bathroom mirror for the first time. :?

It's hard to believe but the generation of NSers we're a part of are now entering middle age to various degrees. I don't have any gray hair or a receding hair line but for some reason I have an unusually thin patch of hair right below the crown (which was noted by an oh-so-helpful barber when I was 18) but otherwise no hair loss. It was a bit sad when I met up with some old college friends a couple of years ago for a funeral (which would have been about seven years since we graduated) and saw my best friend had some gray in his hair. The march of time...

Very dark brown. In the right lighting you can see some red tints. It's long and kinda wavy. I like to sleep in rollers to make it curlier.

Very dark brown for me, almost looks black. Under the sun, you can see that it is brown.

Technically considered dark brown but might as well be black.

I used to have bright blond hair when I was really young but it's darkened over time to the point it's more of a dirty blond-almost brown nowadays.
