Brown Hair, Black Hair

Josh’s hair is a dark shade of brown now, but much lighter when he was younger.
Zoë’s hair is a lighter shade than Josh’s, with beautiful coppery highlights. Its shade is not as light as you see here on the photo below, but definitely brown.
I once had the following conversation with one of the security guards downstairs:
SG: What color is your son’s hair?
Me: Brown. (Thinking to myself, What a weird question.)
SG: No, I meant the name of the color of his hair.
Me: (Still not getting it) What do you mean the name of the color of his hair?
SG: So that when I’ll have my hair colored, I can tell the stylist the name of that color.
Ahhh. Sorry, his hair is naturally that color, so, umm, Mysterious Brown? How does that sound? Considering that my hair is jet black and so is Chris’.

You just gotta love the smile on her face!

That's so funny! My best friend is from Hong Kong and her hair and her hair also has coppery highlights! It's not easy to see inside, but the sun and flash definitely bring it out :)

I love her hair coloring. It makes her very unique and pretty. Is there anyone in either of your families that has the same color of hair?

I love it during the summer when my daughter's hair starts to turn colors from the sun. Like the sun just kissed her, right on top of her head.

Cute pic - as always!

My hubby has black hair and I have dark brown and all of our kids have different colored hair. Caitlyn and Chandler have dark blonde, Colton has dark brown and Carson has really dark brown almost black. Genetics are crazy LOL

Your children are adorable BTW :o)

What a kooky question to ask about a child's hair. Great pics and that conversation between the two of them in your latest post...how sweet! Take care.
