Inflating features? You the one who is living in illusions! There are dark-haired, dark-eyed individuals in every single Northern European country. I am not excluding anyone, you're the one excluding dark-haired Germans and Austrians. You were trying to make it as if, dark-haired people outside of Iberia were only present in Britain for some reason. It's only until a few people pointed out dark-haired individuals in other populations then you changed strategies, isn't it? In terms of tanning, the British and Irish rank last. I already posted on a different an article which says that around 40% of British women use fake tans, let's not even talk about Irish whom plenty have pasty-white skin tone. Yes skin type I has the highest frequency amongst those of predominantly Celtic descent. You cannot get any whiter-skinned or more freckled than the Irish. What wrong with Cheryl Cole, is she too hot for you handle? Cheryl Cole uses fake tanning product, her natural skin color is as white as her British counterparts (white!). You just watch too much TV. In fact, I think British brunettes like Cole and Zeta-Jones are so pretty, but they don't represent the average Brit/Irish who are often lighter. They are chosen for their beauty, sex appeal, etc...And who said that Cheryl Cole was a type I skin? If English isn't your first language, then pay attention to my wording. Celtic populations have the highest frequencies of skin type I, but it doesn't mean that all Celts are skin type I. In terms of skin types (I+II), British Isles surpass Scandinavian countries as well.

many people here use cherry picked pics. the thing is there is no definitive answer to which country is the lightest. you can get dark brits and irish and dark poles, belarusians, Baltics ( Lithuania, Latvia) and its back and forth. the Scandinavians don't have (Mediterranean) features and these countries I mentions the Mediterranean look is no more than 15%. the countries I just mentioned have pale people just like Scandinavia.

Here's a couple of large scale photos with a couple hundred English high schoolers.

The overall impression is of a Northern North/West European country. They absolutely don't look Spanish, or even French.

Every time they post a crowd of English people, they still fail to produce an absence of blonds, and an overall impression lacking of Northern facial form. They've come to the point where even their own hand picked examples don't represent their ideas. This is not a debate. If it were, there would be a free flow of ideas and acknowledgement of the others ideas whether positive or negative. We all acknowledge their posts, but use counter evidence and relevant reasoning to refute them. The bottom line is we take the time to show them that they're properly wrong, producing the necessary work required. They don't. They feel that posting a few cherry-picked photos (that actually don't even illustrate their position), or their own genetic maps that say the opposite of what they say, is all they need to do. We're lucky if we get that, because it's usually just the ignore button. In terms of allotted points, we score, but they get nothing. And yet they have a delusion whatever they can come up, no matter how weak and crappy, will get them out of any argument. It's like thinking they can argue that 6 is a higher number than 9. It's one thing to say it over and over ad-nauseam, but can they ever actually prove it? It's a tall order, but the effort is always lack.

Black hair, brown eyes, olive skin are most common in Southern Europe among Italians, Spaniards, Greeks, Georgians, Bulgarians, the Portuguese. It progressively becomes less frequent as one goes into Northern Europe. Though there are many non-Europeans immigrants who live in Northern European countries.

There are plenty of English people who are blonde, I believe that you have never been to England and know nothing about English people. The English on average show more of the blondeness than the Irish and Welsh.

Examples:

Jonnie Peacock


British athletes or sportsmen




English soccer player:


An English male random supermodel







Another British female athlete

They look Germanic/Celtic, as do individuals from the Netherlands and northern Germany. JamesDean73/Traveler86 likes to use Welsh photos that cherry-pick the most Celtic features in bad resolution and lighting, then promote them as being English, Scots, Irish..........what's the difference?
Compare to the Dutch World Cup Team 1978

The idea that the English need to be predominately blond in order to be related to other northern European people is unfounded. JamesDean/RonnieColeman/Don Caballero has a false cartoon impression based on a foreigners view of Northern Europe.
I like brunets British..they don't seem so far from our brunets, still in our brunets range but if course we go on also more darker types

Maybe him(calabrese) if he pass some years in uk can resemble them.

British Isles brunets are as a whole of lighter skin tone than those of Italy, Spain, Portugal who usually tan easily in the summer. Many brunets of the British Isles don't even tan, but get freckles and their skin burn badly if they exposed themselves to the dangerous summer sunlight. The British Isles (especially Ireland) has also the highest frequency of blue or light-eyed brunets. True, the lighter skin that we see with the British whether blonde, brunette, red head is also linked to adaptation to a gloomy climate. Unfortunately the Calabrese, you've shown does not look anything typically British, not even close.
