When will I know my baby's hair and eye color?

I know most babies are born with darker hair. When will the final hair color of my baby be determined? When will we know my newborn’s final eye color?

Newborn hair usually starts to fall out around one month of age. Some babies lose it all at once and others lose it gradually.

The final hair comes in starting around six months of age. You should also know your baby's eye color by 6 months of age as well.
