At the moment, links to this article are split pretty evenly between House of Haleth (and derivatives) and Haladin. On the one hand, I think they're most commonly referred to as the Haladin, on the other House of Haleth maintains consistency with House of Bëor and House of Hador. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:23, 21 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hair color[edit source]

Man of Bree have brown hair. Why does this page say that they have dark hair?

In most contexts, "dark" refers to anywhere from medium-brown to black, as opposed to "fair," which is very, very light blond to very, very light brown. And please don't forget to sign your talks with four tildes, like this "~ ~ ~ ~" without the spaces. --Holdwine Meriadoc (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:18, 30 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I understand that the Men of Bree have brown hair, that is, they can have all shades of brown hair, which means they can have light brown hair. Light brown hair is not dark. Even the Silmarillion says that the Men of the House of Bëor have dark or brown hair, that is, for the Professor, these colors were different. Maybe I don’t understand something? Explain, please)
