Brown hair is the SECOND most common hair color, after black.The most common
in Europe and some other parts of the world, It is characterized by higher
levels of eumelanin and lower levels of phaeomelanin. Of the two types of
eumelanin (black and brown), brown-haired people have brown eumelanin; they
also usually have medium-thick strands of hair. Brown-haired people are also
known as brunettes.
Blond is only found in about 2% of the world's population. It is due to very
small amounts of melanin.
