Blondes

Blonde is a hair color characterized by low levels of the dark pigment eumelanin. The visible hue depends on various factors, but always has some sort of yellowish color. The color can be from the very pale blond (caused by a patchy, scarce distribution of pigment) to reddish "strawberry" blond colors or golden-brownish ("sandy") blond colors (the latter with more eumelanin). Most blondes are found in Northern European latitudes where there is less sunlight, a typical explanation found in the scientific literature for the evolution of light hair is related to the requirement for vitamin D synthesis. Lighter skin is due to a low concentration in pigmentation, thus allowing more sunlight to trigger the production of vitamin D. In this way, high frequencies of light hair in northern latitudes are a result of the light skin adaptation to lower levels of sunlight. Do blondes have more fun? Only they know!
