    fair hair/blonde hair/light hair

    Hello everyone,

    How should I interpret the sentence "She has light hair."
    Does it mean that her hair is "not heavy, it is like silk" or does it mean "of fair colour"?

    Thank you.

    Re: fair hair/blonde hair/light hair

    It would almost certainly mean "light-coloured hair", not the texture - unless the speaker is a hairdresser.
    She is not necessarily blonde. You can have light red hair, or light 'mousy' hair.
    There are some obvious imposters in the pics below - those with dark brown or black hair obviously don't have light hair.
