    How common is dark brown hair and blue eyes?

    Is it rare to have dark brown hair with blue eyes? My eyes are blue with a green circle around the pupil. Also, nobody in my family that I know of has blue eyes except my younger brother (he has dirty blonde hair) and mt great grandma, but I don't know what color her hair used to be. Is my combination rare/uncommon?

    I think it's all on the genes and depends on your heritage and DNA. I have read that eye color and hair color are not directly related. I also read that people from Irish descent tend to have light eyes and dark hair.

    And here's a picture of me. Kind of bad lighting but it should be fine:

    I don't know how common (in percentage) it is, but it is not unusual, because even "brown hair / brown eyed" can carry the gene for blue eyes.
    Fran Sinatra had dark hair, but was also called "Old Blue Eyes" because of his eye color.

      Both my parents have hazel eyes, and so does both sides of my family, except my dads grandma. Actually some have brown eyes. But blue eyes are rare in my family., I guess.
