Hair color is determined by genetics. When the genes of both parents combine that will determine the color of the hair. Even if you have light hair you might have dark hair genes. If your spouse also has dark hair genes your baby has a good chance at having dark hair.

It is also common for a baby's hair to be dark at birth and change color of the next few weeks and months.
