    Eye vs. Hair Color

    Which is more important? Assume all other factors (such as hair texture or skin type) are equal.

    I believe eye color is more important. Eyes are connected to the brain, so it is more likely for eye phenotype to correlate with personality traits.

    Personally I have a fondness for the Blue eyed and blonde combo. What do you mean both are unacceptable? There are plenty of Nordic with brown eyes or brown hair.

    A person is more than his hair or eye color. Though this is part of his/her identity.

    I voted for blue eyes and brown hair, and I of course mean what Skandinavians would call brown hair. Other people would probably think of it as fair hair.

    I agree.

    I don't think I have seen blonde hair and brown eyes combined.

    As a matter of preference, in women, I actually like darker hair, as the blonde female friends I’ve had don’t end up with eyebrows without makeup, which creeps me out. I suppose if she had a really attractive spirit and personality, I could get past the no eyebrows thing, and see the woman in question as potentially more than friends. In men, I really don’t care, so long as the prospective friend has a fierce, yet disciplined nature. Anything darker than hazel or light-brown eyes looks a little off to me.

    /ok, ok, women-folk, beat the snot out of me with your clogs or whatever for having a double-standard.

    That's relative and it's difficult do lump everything together. I found that the threshold in the Anglo-Saxon world for the perception of "blond" is considerably lower than where I come from. Ditto for Germany. Basically, it's a matter of semantics.

    I've seen quite a few blondes without plucked brows. I don't get why women pluck their brows bald and fill it in with makeup. It's nasty. Natural brows are by far more attractive. Unless you a middle eastern. :biggrin:

    I have - once. That combination is truly striking.
