Except for the eyelashes, all hairs emerge obliquely from the skin surface, with the hairs in any one region doing so in the same direction. The part of the hair which projects from the skin surface is the shaft and that under the skin is the root, which is ensheathed in a sleeve of epidermis known as the follicle extending into the subcutaneous tissue (Fig.

Skin colour depends on the presence of pigment (melanin) and the vascularity of the dermis.
