Chestnut hair

Chestnut hair is a hair color which is a reddish shade of brown hair. In contrast to auburn hair, chestnut is more brown, and it is often referred to as "chestnut brown". The pigments that cause the coloration of chestnut hair are frequently brown eumelanin with stronger levels of pheomelanin.
