1Phil's natural hair colour is "a weird shade of brown". For his childhood his hair was strawberry blonde; at the age of eleven, he dyed it blonde; this may be the reason it looked ginger in his early teenage years. Phil dyes it black. He dyes over a white streak at the back of his head; in an undyed picture of it, the rest of Phil's hair is black.
