This is why you have red, brown or blonde hair, according to new study
Researchers have found dozens of new genes that explain why we have certain hair colours.
Whether it’s the fiery tones of redheads like Florence Welch and Sophie Turner, or the golden honey hues of blondes like Margot Robbie and Blake Lively, your natural hair colour has the power to instantly separate you from the pack.
And, up until this week, we were all convinced that a couple of genes were the determining factor in setting our natural hair colour.
However, researchers from King’s College London and Erasmus university in Rotterdam have found that 124 genes — 100 more than previously known — actually play a huge role in determining our hair colour.
