Does the carpet match the drapes? Well, it can! If you’re a natural brunette, you might have noticed that your hair down there is pretty much the same color as the hair on your head, perhaps a few shades darker. But have you ever wondered whether it’s the same for blondes and redheads?

Do blonde people have blonde pubic hair? Let’s find out.


Do Blonde People Have Blonde Pubic Hair?

Before asking what color the pubic hair is, ask yourself: have you seen a blonde with light-colored eyebrows and lashes? And, have you seen a blonde with dark brows and lashes?

If you know the answer to these two questions, you will find the answer to the question posed in the title.

Blonde people can have blonde pubic hair- in fact, all the hair on the body of true blonds is blond, just like blonde eyebrows or blonde eyelashes. They can also have blonde armpit hair, even blonde chest and stomach hair!

Blonde people can have blonde pubic hair- in fact, all the hair on the body of true blonds is blond, just like blonde eyebrows or blonde eyelashes. They can also have blonde armpit hair, even blonde chest hair and stomach hair!

But blondes can also have darker pubic hair. Pubic hair is usually 2-5 shades darker than the hair on a person’s head.

So, anyone can have black pubic hair. But very few people, including blondes, have blonde pubic hair. If it’s “blond”, then it’s usually dark gold to light brown at the lightest.


The Weird Texture of Pubic Hair

You might have noticed that your pubic hair has a very different texture as compared to the rest of the hair on your body. It’s thicker, darker, and usually curly. Some people even claim that people with straight hair on their heads have curlier pubic hair, and those with curly hair on their heads have straighter pubic hair.

But why does it have that texture?

Well, if you think about it, any other texture would be quite impractical. Imagine long, flowy locks down there as opposed to the bush. Yeah, we wouldn’t want that either. 

Just like eyelashes or nose hair, pubic hair traps dirt, debris, and harmful bacteria and microbes from a sensitive area.


Why Do We Have Pubic Hair?

What purpose do these wiry, short hairs serve? Why is it different from most other mammal species? Does it even have a purpose?

Of course, it does. Here are a few reasons why humans evolved to have pubic hair:

Reducing Friction

The skin down there is extremely sensitive. Pubic hair acts as a barrier, preventing friction during intercourse or other activities. 

Warmth

Pubic hair also keeps the genital area warm and moist. Without this, your skin will dry out, and chafing can occur due to a lack of sweat and moisture. 

Protection from bacteria and other pathogens

Just like eyelashes or nose hair, pubic hair traps dirt, debris, and harmful bacteria and microbes from a sensitive area. This function is very important. The hair follicles also secrete oil, which prevents bacteria from reproducing and multiplying.


How to Remove Pubic Hair

First of all, do you even need to remove pubic hair? As much as this society might tell you yes, the answer is actually no. Contrary to popular belief, pubic hair is not unhygienic.

This misconception has led to women going through any procedure, painful or not, affordable or not, to get rid of pubic hair. It’s not something that is necessary.

With that said, some people just like to feel smooth down there. There are many popular ways to remove pubic hair, with the Brazilian waxing process being likely the most famous and painful (it does get easier over time, though).

There is also laser hair removal and topical hair removal.


Conclusion

While it is unusual, some natural blondes do have blonde pubic hair, and blonde body hair. Most have body hair that is 3-5 shades darker than the head hair. What you do with your pubic hair is your choice.
