Blonde hair and hazel eyes...

Recommended Posts

Jasmin    10

Hi my question is, is it really rare or uncommon for a person with natural blonde hair to have hazel eyes? Im a natural blonde and people are always accusing me of bleaching my hair because blondes usually have blue or green eyes...

Not really, no. It is perhaps less common than the standard 'blond hair, blue eyes', but it does happen. Hazel is only a shade from green. Are you light or dark blonde?

I have light blonde hair...my features used to be darker when I was little but my eyes and hair got lighter as I got older but from far away my eyes look brown, you can only see the green in them up close...

Then it is uncommon, but not weird. It does happen, as does that startling combination of dark brown/black hair and blue or green eyes.

Welcome to the world of weird...hahahahaaa. In genetics, anything is possible. It's all a probablity thing.

 

I myself am black, Irish, Native American, and West Indian. I have caramel skin, brown hair with light brown highlights with a red tint, and eyes that deside what color they want to be ranging from brown to light brown to hazel. I guess you have to look into your background :::scientist side of me kicking in::: if you are able to get a good background on yourself, you may even be able to do a semi-accurate dihybrid cross on yourself. Have fun:)

Hey guys happy you discussing this, I have notice than from all my friends that recently had kids, where one of the parents have brown eyes and the other blue eyes, the kids all have BLUE EYES, as you know Bb (B=Brown, b=blue) Brown is a dominant gene and in general most of them should have brown eyes. Has anyone else notice this?

I have very brown hair and very blue eyes. I get alot of comments on how rare it is, but I also have a non-blood related aunt with the same thing.

until I was about 6, then my hair started to darken. By the time I was in high school, it was "paper bag brown" . It was also really oily and always looked dirty. I started "frosting it" to improve the color and also to dry it out some. I was ever so glad when foiling was invented. It was torture to have long hair pulled through a cap with crochet hooks.

 

Cut to the chase - I was born blonde with hazel eyes.

This means the parents are bb and Bb and that means the grandparents are xb xb and Bx xb where x is unknown, so the parents of the brown eye parent were blue and brown heterozygous.

 

Every child has an independant chance for blue eyes with every "trial" (fertilisation), so to having mulitple children with blue eyes shouldnt be any less rare for these parents as just one with blue eyes. Its like flipping a coin, getting heads on the first toss doesn't reduce the chances of getting heads on the second toss.

well it is independant but you're statistics are a bit rusty, its much less likely to have multiple children with blue eyes

 

chances of one blue eyed child: 1:2

chances of two blue eyed childs: 1:4

chances of three blue eyed childs: 1:8

chances of four blue eyed childs: 1:16

chances of five blue eyed childs: 1:32

Now I feel like one-of-a-kind, I have very dark brown hair and bright green eyes. I get comments about it all the time :)

maybe this is due to linkage?

 

No, its just the nature of probability. It works with flipped coins as well. Actually, both zeroth and sorcerer are right, they are just saying different things. (I think)

heres the thing, regardless, in the last century, alot has occured obviously, and other than such specticles of 'x-men' and other creations of that it isnt far from the truth. Especially with all the people of mixed races. I myself am japanese and german. and for some reason beyond any known every damn person in my family has brown eyes and dark hair, and they all have glasses, everyone, even the german side. ME on the other hand, i naturally have this odd dull brown/ blonde colour, and i have bluish green eyes and above 30/20 vision. I cant explain it, no one cares to, the point is, i am living proof of how screwed up genetic possibilities can be. so it wouldnt surprise me if you started to see black people with red hair and freckles, and if you saw the whitest person youve ever seen with asian eyes and a dark black afro. to be honest, if i saw an umpa-loompa from willy wonka i wouldnt be surprised. espesscially in canada where if anywhere youll find someone who has a part of some other culture you wouldnt expect.

actually, just to add something, if you take keanu reeves for example, he is like 1/4 japanese, 1/4 hawaiian, 1/2 english, now if you look at him he has brown hair, brown eyes, and if you look at the matrix has like blonde chest hair? would someone care to explain that?!?! cause that just confuzes the hell out of me.

chances of five blue eyed childs: 1:32[/quote']

 

you sure about those ^

 

if i remember correctly the chance of ONE blue eyed child was more like 1:4 or more. I mean, it all depends on the parents.

 

Unless im missing something, your statistics say that 1 child will either have blue eyes or X eyes. leaving no room for more than 2 colors.

i have blond hair and brown eyes, which is uncommon.

 

id guess that the hair and eye colours are linked; a quick google search supports the idea, although there was no uber-scienticical research in the results, by the look of it.

Hair Color

Eye Color

Skin Color

 

all contain melanin.

I belive they are all linked, for the most part.

so it wouldnt surprise me if you started to see black people with red hair and freckles,

 

I've seen this... I'm not entirely certain it was due to genetics though... The environment (i'm thinking about food) can have an effect too no?
