Is hazel even a color?


Well-Known Member
Is hazel even a color? I got a student who's medical says Brown Hair, Hazel Eyes. Innitially I was thinking that hazel is a shade of brown. If so can it be used for hair collor or only for eyes color?
Does hazel even exist as a color in FAA database? I looked on the net and found something like" if you think hazel is a color, then rainbow is a color...".
Thank you.
Doesn't look very brown to me.


edit: Ironically enough the image shares my name but has absolutely nothing to do with me, although my eyes ARE hazel. Strange.
