hair color?  
I dunno if this question was ever asked before, but: What is Benedict's natural hair color? I've seen his hair in various different shades throughout his works Idek anymore.

My guess is a light, slightly gingerish brown. It's not quite brown. It's not quite strawberry-blonde. It's not quite tawny.

I think, at least. It does change a lot, but I believe it's his natural hair here, for instance:

I think he mentioned in one old interview it was auburn. The photo looks auburn to me. I'm a red head and I know my hair has got darker through the years and his probably is to.

Ah, yes! "Auburn" was the word I was trying to think of earlier, not "tawny." Forgive me. I'd only just woken up.

Yes, yes, auburn makes more sense.

Can't remember which interview I was reading now, but he does say it's a sort of auburn colour. I didn't know myself until then, but he said it's dyed darker for Sherlock because it suits the character, because he's like a creature of the night XD

I do prefer it darker, though, but I'll still take him any which way!

He's definitely a ginger, but the shade keeps varying. Some of us go blonder with age and some go darker. There's a whole thing about gingerness having been associated with youth in the olden days because it's a shade that often changes a *lot* with age. I know I'm betraying gingerkind by saying he looks better with darker hair, but ah well:).

Lol... now since he's "ginger" it now makes sense with the 10th doctor wishing he was ginger!

Remember the comment about wanting him wanting to be ginger and now with Benedict been offered the part to pay the 10th Doctor before Tennant! It all makes sense now :P

benedict's hair colour
I know this thread was started some time ago and I've been meaning to add a comment but only just got around to it. Benedict's hair has been several different colours for various roles. Black for Sherlock, blonde for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy etc. However, his natural colour is definitely reddish brown. He has referred to it as auburn and some say ginger. Some also say he looks better with dark hair but I beg to differ. IMO he looks much better with his natural colour.
