Good question for we beginners. Forced me to learn some vocabulary.
All of them are a type of word for hair except uñas.
My question is... I understand that pestañas are eyeslashes, but when is it appropriate to use the other words for hair?
Ladies don't wear false vello.
Some don't even want the real stuff!
Because I am a clinical biochemist I would have to point out that the main difference between the above is only their physical appearance because they are all composed of keratin. Las uñas obviously "look" different from the "hairy" form of keratin.
Amy! How can you say that!!!!!
Finger nails can get pretty hairy!
I still say nobody wears false vello!
Vello is fuzzy soft hair like down in botony, bloom in fruit and velvety as in antlers. Pelo and cabello speak for themselves. As a matter of interest I believe "la pestaña" in Spain can also mean the police, I suppose we in Englnd would say "the fuzz"
All great answers, and of course, correct!
I would say uñas too since all the rest are connected with hair of some sort , I will go with my first gut instinct and say uñas is my final answer
In America we would call "vello" "peach fuzz"!! That very fine fuzzy coating on the peel of a peach. I like Eddy's answer too, one I hadn't thought of for it...the velvet on a deer's emerging antler in the Spring.
