Hair/beard colour difference

Searched: facial hair colour, beard colour, hair beard colour difference, a bunch of combinations thereof

I've gotten a lot of results of people asking if it's possible/normal for men to have facial hair that's a different colour from their scalp hair, which I already knew was perfectly normal, but my question is where exactly is the line between the different colours? I'm working on a character design and I thought the difference in colouration would be a neat touch, but I need to know where the difference would start. I want to have it go from dark brown to a sort of red/gold blonde beard, and I'm sure this is possible, but I just don't know where the colouring would start to differ or how starkly it would.
