How Many Real-Life Redheads do You Know?
Nov 11th, 2004 at 8:52pm
 
How many other redheads do you know if "real-life"?

One of my best friends was a redhead and she was taken by breast cancer several years ago.  Other than her, I haven't known really many redheads in my life.  A few aquaintances, but not really more.

Just curious.  Didn't mean to get all serious on you.

Real redheads? I feel like I've only known a few in my life. This certainly doesn't include me, as I'm dyed. I've also known a few women with natural light auburn hair, which a bit harder to define, but you know it when you see it I guess.

It doesn't include me either unfortunately!  Cry Oh, to get away with never colouring my hair again!!!
Never gonna happen!

However, my wee cousin has fire engine red hair naturally and so does her half brother. They get it from my uncle who is ironically Italian.

My grandmother and mum get streaks of red throughout their hair from my Spanish great grandmother.

I must have been swimming in the shallow end of the gene pool cuz I didn't get any of those lovely inheritances.  Cry

I just got the white skin. LOL

I know several natural redheads (and many more "assisted" redheads).  I have always admired the beautiful color of their hair.

I'm a natural redhead, and so is my older half-brother.  That said, I had a friend in high school with natural red hair, but that's about all.. all the rest I know are "enhanced" redheads.

My dad's a natural redhead, so I suppose he's the guilty party in my case (unless the mailman was a redhead too). My great-grandma was blonde, and I'm the first blonde in the family since her. A little bit of both!

Oh, and one of my best friends is currently an assisted strawberry-blonde. I have no idea what her natural color is - I've seen her in everything from ash blonde to bright purple!

I don't know many.  And when I was growing up I didn't know any "enhanced" redheads!

Do we really need to make a difference?  I don't think so.  Any 'enhanced' redhead is paying other redheads the biggest compliment on their haircolor by choosing it for her own.

And I have seen red-tinted hair on some people that their coloring of their complexions along with their red hair was both unusual and stunning!

For me, we are all legitimate redheads, regardless of where our red color originated!

Just wanted to say... I was a redhead in my second-most-recent past life. An Irishwoman who threw herself off a cliff.

Anais,

I think
former
redheads count, too!

Sometimes red hair is an attitude.

I was born with red hair but I dye mine now. My uncle and aunt are both red heads. And I know 4 other red heads besides that.

I know several natural red heads.... Of course I'm related to most of them... 16 in fact.. But I do know 5 others, who I'm not related to.

My older brother had bright red/orange curly (and lots of it) hair when he was a kid up till high school. Freckles' galore, too. Quite the only real redhead -and what red!- I have known. No one else in our family had that kind of colour. He is almost bald now and has been a mouse-brown haired guy for his adult life. Alas, I have to have my hair really long to get some auburn in or a wee-bit reddish in their length, but nowhere even remotely near the real red colour  Cry

During my childhood I didn't know any other redheads and so I thought I was a freak, therefore I hated it. I was always singled out. Now I have two daughters who both have red hair and in my village I know of about t four true redheads and very rarely see others around. It is still a fairly rare colour as far as I can see. My mother had 7 brothers and sisters and neither she nor any of her brothers and sisters had red hair, they were all sort of mousy. I have 19 cousins, again no redheads, but some of my cousins seem to be having red headed children. My grandmother on my mothers side was Irish and my grandfather on my mothers side hailed from Scotland so I guess that is where it originally came from but it was strange that out of 19 cousins I am the only one. I love my hair colour now though. It will be interesting to seewhat colour I will go when I am old as loads of old ladies of varying colours have told me that they were red heads when they were younger.

I know three redheads:

My aunt is a redhead.  I think this might be the reason why I have copper strands in my hair.

My friend from volleyball was a redhead:  She had very fair skin and features.  Her hair was borderline strawberry blonde.

My ex had a gorgeous head of curly red hair.  Too bad his hair didn't reflect the rest of his personality.
