So we are now down to makeup science? :D

Berni. You lost your previous discussion, now you try to have a jab on me... very mature. I will just ignore you.

I was just pointing out that what you said was nonsense and with your response you validated it.
And im not here to win or loose discussions, but at least i have the common sense to admit i made a mistake instead of changing the topic and run.
5 Jan 2013 #34
I didn't change the topic and run, I just read your comment as being a lame joke. How should I reply on it? There is no reply.

I have no scientific proofs, I'm not a scientist to look for them.
However you may check the previous page, look at the pictures I've posted and tell us how often do you see the first eye colour, and how many of people who has it have golden blond/dark blond/brown hair?

It has nothing to do with how often i see this, there have been studies done on that.
And your statement that:

One must be naturally ultra blond (or oppositly - pure black hair) to have clear blue eyes.

might seem right from a visagist point of view, scientifically it is simply wrong.
5 Jan 2013 #36
Ok, if you say so.
Out of interest can I read about it somewhere?

For further understanding i suggest the following web searches:
"correlation hair eye color"
"polygenic pigmentation"
Viewer discretion is advised.

Not sure how I even ended up on this site.. but I must say... my mother and father both have clear blue eyes and naturally brunette hair with reddish tints in sunlight. My four sisters and I were all born with blue eyes as pictured in your textbook sample with no other colors in our eyes. 4 out of 5 of us have brunette hair. Only one has blonde. So, sorry zetigreek, I don't know where you got your fact from.

Just to enhance the subject thread. Here is my Polish eye. When I was a little boy they used to call me "whitey" because my hair was platinum blonde. The other image is a construct from the dna analysis of a man found in a cave in Spain. La Brana man.

I don't have ultra blonde hair, and my hair is golden blonde.

My boyfriend, full Russian, has ash blonde hair and gray-blue eyes.

Merged: Heterochromia iridum

Hi. Quick question. Is there anyone whose eyes are of different colour on this forum or maybe anyone who knows someone that's affected?

eyes are of different colour

I know someone like that.

I have Polish and have Amber eyes! There is more yellow in them than I see in Amber eye images that look more Amber golden orange, if that makes sense. I have a lot of yellow to make them glow. My father has similar but not as pronounced! All his polish brothers had very blue! I used to get teased as a child and called "yellow eyes", but now I get asked where can I get your contacts color? I just laugh and say you can't!

Suffice to add, however, that a healthy majority of Poles have, at the very least, "light" eyes, shall we say:-) Blue, light amber, or green, I've occasionally met Poles with dark brown eyes (though never black!), although they've maintained to me that they may be of Polish highlander aka góral origins, or possibly even Slovak.

In my family 6 out of 8 children have blue eyes and only our mother has blue eyes and golden blonde hair (our father has brown eyes and dark brown hair) and only one of her parents had blue eyes. Most of us have grey-blue eyes, half of us have golden blonde hair whilst the other half has dark brown hair and neither of my mothers parents have blonde hair. This is my eye colour though maybe slightly darker:

Eye colour alone, however, does scarcely a Pole make:-) Usually, the facial or bone structure (along with height) may indicate a particular nationality. I know for instance any number of Italians and Spaniards with lightish eyes, and yet their build, apparent hair texture/facial hair for men, and general stature show them to be Southerners.

All of my Russian side has brown eyes as well as my Polish except my father's mother who had green.

" the scientific consensus is that a lack of genetic diversity is the primary reason behind heterochromia. "

i doubt any of us are 'pure' - that is for pedigree dogs and they have inbreeding problems as well...:)

Intermarriage combined with cross-pollination of different ethnic groups certainly contributes to both eye and hair color:-)

the eyes are such a spectacular sight to behold & you get to see into the soul, i've studied why people have certiant types & where they come from (look up "haplogroup dna map" for something interesting). my eyes are mainly green with a deep blue ring around the outside & a small spot of brown in the middle. do you see heterochomia around much or is it pretty rare for you too?
21 Mar 2017 #56
Most poles have brown eyes that's why no one in West considers them white.
Lyzko 33 | 8,313

?? Which Poles have you been staring at recently? Most in my extensive experience observing faces have at least lightish to piercing cobalt blue eyes (like Radek Sikorski and Beata Szydło), and those with brown or darkish eyes are most likely an admixtures way back when of Polish with Kaszub or Carpathians:-)

Mag gotta be trollin, in general poles are mostly white & i'm from the west siiide *hits it up* lól ya Lyzko it's dat "r1a1" (blonde blue eyed w/ nose pointing down) & "i" (blonde blue eyed w/ nose pointing up) dna haplogroups that lend to that trend. i can also see some ancient celt influence (r1b dna aka ginger) in some areas like Kielce (even a rumor that's where the name came from). Polska to piękny kraj :)

All blue whole family. Like glaring blue.

Precisely! The small, turned up nose, bright blue eyes and often sculptured features are typically Polish facial charactaristics:-)
