    You don't find blonde hair people with dark eyes (brown & hazel) in Scandinavia. Even most of blonde Samis have light eyes.
    So for me that combination gives Central/Southern European vibe.

    I wonder how light hair blondes (natural color) one can find among hazel/brown eyes people? Are they more often so called dark blondes or all the way to platina blondes?

    I think skintone also is important to the question how natural it looks.
    She looks cute and not what I could call atypically Germanic, by far.

    I don't believe that the blonde/brown combination looks strange, exotic or particularly Southern in any way, although opinions may of course differ. However, as Bärin mentions, it also depends on the skintone - and I would add, on the shade of blonde and brown, there can be many shades. Generally the combination of blonde with brown can be a warm one, just like red/brown or certain shades or brown/brown. Dark brown eyes best go with dark or "dirty" blonde while hazel eyes can compliment lighter shades. Deviations may still exist though.

    Here are more blonde/brown combinations, I will post mainly people of full, predominant or partial Germanic stock. Scandinavians can have them too, although in lesser numbers than blonde/blue or brown/brown. She is Finnish for example:



    As is she:

    I could also give examples of Nordic yet non-Germanic brown-eyed blondes (Estonian, Russian, etc.) however I decided to focus on Germanics due to the theme of our forum.

    It is good to keep in minds, that hair dyeing is very common nowadays ....and especially to lighter shade.
    For example Jasper Pääkkönen (Finn) ... this is his real color (more a less). I would't call him blonde.

    I have specifically searched for people whose hair was mentioned as natural blonde. It is of course, possible that some of the entries were incorrect, or that some of them have highlighted it to a lighter color. Though the reverse might also be true, I have heard of natural blondes with light brown eyes toning their hair darker. And of course, blue eyed blondes are also known to highlight their hair (e.g. dirty blonde to ash blonde). If that is Jasper Pääkkönen's natural color, I would not call it blonde either, rather golden brown maybe. Although the definition of blonde might vary according to country. What is considered light brown in Scandinavia might be blonde in Central Europe, etc.

    How about Finnish biathlete Mari Laukkanen? She has platinum blonde hair and brown eyes.



    Of course, the question is what exactly do we define as "natural blonde". There is no universally agreed-upon definition for this phrase or a standard measurement that can be applied to determine whether or not a person can be officially called blond or not. Individually, people have formed their own ideas about what constitutes a blond's "naturalness": some say that anyone who was born blond is naturally blond, even if their color has darkened over time, while others believe that the term can only apply to those who retain their blondness into adulthood. Most naturally-blond children's hair starts to darken with puberty because the amount of eumelanin in the hair increases with maturity. In addition, a woman who remains blonde through puberty may see a permanent darkening of her skin and hair after her first pregnancy. Also, the shade can vary according to season, climate and sun exposure. Most blond people see a noticeable darkening of their tresses during the colder months, when there is less UV exposure to work its bleaching magic. Additionally, how blond a blond has to be in order to hold that title is up for interpretation.

    Of course if we compare the percentage of naturally blonde/brown eyes with blonde/blue or blonde/green, the former will be rarer than the latter. It may be one of the rarer combinations. But it is certainly possible and present in Germanic nations. In fact, Germanics can have pretty much any hair and eye color possible, from lightest to darkest.

    Anyway, feel free to correct if there are other similar entries.

    Blonde hair and hazel eyes are somewhat more common. Sometimes, hazel and brown eyed blondes are also freckled, as in this example:



    Blode hair and hazel eyes, some might be dark/dirty blonde:

    Yes. She is blonde and would look better with light eyes (of course not Germanic as such)


    She comes from here.... the most eastern part of Finland ... having max. amount ugric blood (karelian) on her

    I think that can explain the rare combination....

    What comes to rest ... sure, those can be found from USA, just like from Central Europe, Southern Europe or from here ....


    ... won't still change my own opinion about the topic.

    I find the combination blonde/brown to be more harmonious than dark brown or black hair and blue eyes. Though the latter can also be pulled off in some cases.

    Real blondes with brown eyes are kind of rare over here. Usually, real blondes have light eyes in France. Or, at the very least, they have hazel eyes.

    Most people don't even believe the real blondes with brown eyes when they say they're real blondes.

    In 2002:
    10% of the French population was blonde (real blondes). Blonds can be found especially in the North and East of France, in Normandy and Brittany.
    50% of the French population had brown/chestnut hair (from light to dark). Some people would consider light brown hair as being blond.
    20% of the French populatio had gray hair.
    10% of the French populatio had black hair.
    5% the French populatio had red hair.
    2.5% of the French populatio had dark brown hair.
    2.5% of the French populatio had white hair.

    I can't tell what hair color the people with gray and white hair had before.

    In Northern France, 50 to 79% of the population had either blue or green eyes in 2008.

    Yes, "Asterix and the Normans" is one of the funniest and one of the best Asterix stories.

    It's simply one of the most accomplished albums in the integration of the dialogues between the characters and the drawing. Almost every panel (frame) is a pure reading joy.

    I still have my copy. Reading Asterix was part of my childhood.

    May I ask that people thinks about these kind of eyes with blonde? Light gray eyes. Are those ugly ?



    I have light blue eyes, but some of my Finnish Swede relatives have those. I might carry that gene too (as a passive) ...
    It is not a Germanic trait, or?
