After black hair, brown hair is the second most popular hue for human hair. Brown hair is often referred to as brunet (for men) or brunette (for women). It ranges from medium dark hair to light brown hair. Higher amounts of the dark pigment eumelanin and lower levels of the light pigment pheomelanin are its defining characteristics.
Brown hair were perceived as brave, passionate, and fierce, whereas those with brown hair were considered as refined, mature, and intelligent. Even in popular media, we may still witness these preconceptions today.
