    Dark Red Hair

    Although I have all the typical features of a redhead (freckles, pale skin, green eyes), people tend to think I'm a brunette because of how dark my hair is. (it's a dark auburn) Sometimes I really wish my hair was a little bit lighter so it would be more obvious that I'm a ginger...

    The Horror And Great Joy Of Red Hair

    I hated my brilliant red hair from childhood to adult and thought I was ugly- in my home country, Mexico, people would pinch each other on the street as I walked by and whisper loudly "redhead! bad luck!' upsetting and also infuriating! But when my own redheaded first child was...

    Being Different

    Growing up kids were so cruel making fun of the girl who was different calling me names like Woody Woodpecker or carrot top. I hated my hair until high school when I actually started getting compliments on it. "Women pay lots of money to get their hair your color." Now I look at...

    I am not a natural redhead,

    Born With It

    I was born with red hair and though everyone said it would change as I got older, it didn't and I am still a redhead and luvin every moment of it.The one thing that I don't have that most redheads do is a temper; I use to have some of one but I have worked hard to tame it.

    I've dyed my hair blonde,

    brown, and black but nothing beats the gorgeousness of natural red hair. Just like any other color there are many shades of red but I completely adore my own shade. Maybe i'm being a tad bit conceited but to me it's just so perfect! I wouldn't have it any other way

    I Am Ginger And Proud.

    Growing up I was bullied a lot for being ginger, I used to find it funny that these people would make fun of something as stupid as my hair colour, really if the only thing you can think of to bully me is my hair colour don't expect me to be upset about it. As I got older though...

    Red.

    I'm a natural redhead and have only really started to embrace and love my red hair in the past couple of years. I don't really mind having pale skin, freckles and a mass of fiery curls on top of my head, anymore. I used to believe the comments years ago, from other kids, that I...

    Dark Red

    I have naturally dark red hair. As does my sister. It's not all that common for two blond people to end up with dark red headed daughters! I love my dark hair because it makes me unique and I love the color. My husband says it was my hair that first attracted him to me.

    Its A Beautiful Thing

    I honestly didn't know 'ginger hate' was a real thing until all of the coverage after that South Park episode. I've only ever been made fun of for being a redhead by one person and that was a boy in grade school who's best insults were carrot-top and freckle face. I guess I've...

    Yep, I'm A Redhead With The Attitude To Go With It.

    I was born with bright red hair and had a bald spot on the top of my head, making me look like a mini Mo from the three stooges. Like most babies hair does, mine fell out eventually and was replaced with blonde hair. Around the age of ten my hair began changing to red. The...

    Yes! It Is My Natural Color!!

    I was born strawberry blonde. It is not auburn, it is not orange, it is not blonde, it is Strawberry blonde. My hair changes colors with the seasons. In the summer, it is fluffier, so more light shines in it, so it appears lighter. Also, the longer it is, the lighter it looks...

    I Like The Colour

    I love having red hair and green eyes. When people hear my accent they go 'are you Irish?' And they're right (obviously). I like having a more unusual coloured hair, but it's nothing to be proud of- its all genetics!

    Red Hair Is Different :)

    Yay red hair! I am insecure about a lot of things, but my red hair is not 1 of them :)) I am naturally a red head and I love it. That's my favorite thing about myself. I feel different having red hair and green eyes. Its kind of rare.

    I think I can be pretty vain about my hair. When I was little my hair was a lighter red, almost strawberry blonde. It's darkened into a lush fire engine red that few people believe is natural. I'll be honest, the highlights aren't so natural but they are just there to enhance the...
