  • Pretty good. It's genetics...it's all in the parents/familys DNA. I have dark brown hair and my husband has blondish/light brown hair...our son has BRIGHT red hair.

  • Absolutely -- hair color, eye color, etc. are as a result of complex genetic interactions. The dark black hair could have come from a grand- or great-grandparent, or even further down the line.

  • It can happen, or the opposite. I have friends who both have dark hair, and their son's hair is blonder than blond. But his face is exactly like his dad, so there's definitely no question who his dad is.

  • I've always been a blue eyed blonde. DH was very blonde when he was young. We were both born with black hair, and all 4 of our kids were born with blonde hair. It's pretty normal for a baby to be born with dark hair - it usually falls out fairly soon. Regardless of parents hair color it's not uncommon for a baby to be born with dark hair.

  • Yeah it can happen. Also the hair the kid comes out with is not necessary the color it will be in a month or a year.
