- Can identical twins have different colored hair?
- Q: Identical meaning they look exactly alike.And they naturally have different colored hair.
- A: Haha, I was thinking the same. They wouldn't be identical if one was a red head and the other a blond - they'd be fraternal twins. If the hair is different then there are probably other features that are different and would distinguish them as fraternal. Sort of like two twin babies from a white/black couple and one twin comes out white and the other black - they're not exactly identical.

- Q: i know the odds of having a twin is 1 in 300.but i want to know what the odds are of having identical twins who are born with different hair colors. like one having light blonde hair and the other having dark red hair..... i know that identical twins can be born with different hair colors... i noticed someone said it wasn't possible. i am an identical twin and i was born with dark red hair and my sister was born with blonde hair and we are for sure identical twinsif this helps... i was born with dark red hair but it feel out later on and grew back in the same color as my sister. i always thought it was odd how that worked. but my dad when i was born didn't believe that we were identical so he asked the doctor and he said that we were for sure identical and that there was no doubt about itok so i've kinda had it with this question cause people keep saying it can't happend or like "dude identical means identical" blah blah blah you might as well not answer the question if you're going to say that cause i know it IS possible cause i was born that way and tests show we are identical. so stop being ignorant and telling me i'm wrong. i can't be wrong it fucking happend to me, but if you think you are a doctor and know more then every scientist on the planet fine tell me i'm not an identical twin.
- A: I would say the odds are low, but not zero. I have twin brothers, and they have the same hair color, but they aren't identical in everything. Throughout the years (they will be 21) they have changed. They still look like each other, but one is taller then the other, and/or one is skinnier then the other. They are still identical, but factors in their life have molded them to what they are today.Hair color is tricky. And usually the hair color you are born with isn't what you end up with. Hormones are to thank, and that would be the only reason why the hair would be different...a slight characteristic flaw in the hormones.They SAY twins are twins, but coming from personal experience...no one can be EXACTLY the same. We are all unique, even if someone looks like us.
