Europeans, especially those of northern and eastern Europe, are unique in having diverse hair and eye colors. These relatively new hair and eye colors are brighter and “purer” than the black and brown hues of other populations. They have created an appearance that we now perceive as “European,” which has emerged over a short span of evolutionary time—less than ten thousand years. Why? How? This work explores the latest science to answer these puzzling questions.
