If yes did this spread through ANE? If not then does that mean blonde hair originated in EEFs/WHGs?

I think the ones found in Solomon Islanders

That is Oceania, not SE Asia.

Although Solomon Islanders have a little bit of Austronesian ancestry, and speak the language, most of their ancestry base is pre-Austronesian (80-85%+). Melanesian would be the right term, and their mutation for light hair was independent from the W Eurasian one.

Gotcha. My bad.

This post said SE Asia so I got confused.

It mentions blondism in the South Pacific, thus Oceania and environs, and speculates about its origin in SE Asia:


We also have present populations in the South Pacific (Aetas, Melanesians, various others) who show significant levels of P and other K2b groups, with zero ANE admixture. Incidentally, they show blondism as well, like Afontova Gora, but mediated with different alleles (perhaps light hair arose in SE Asia?)

It doesn't make sense. I think I found the study saying there mutations are different in Oceania and Europe.
