    I love having red hair.

    As a child I hated it but in my 20s I learned people wish they could have red hair and there was not a lot of us. Now I have 2 red haired granddaughters who will one day realize red hair is the bomb and kids are not the best judge of characters

    Actually I have very very dark brown hair

    but with streaks if grey which is odd sense I'm 21. However my beard has patches of red in it.

    I am a strawberry blonde,

    more lighter red, But when it starts to turn grey (hopefully way, waaay later) I'm worried I won't find my Color in a bottle.

    I love my red hair :) Even with my low

    self-esteem, in truth, it's one of the few things I actually like about myself. I've gotten teased for it a lot, but I just ignore it. Thankfully all of the teasing is sooooo unoriginal it's not really insulting anymore. Still kinda sucks though, but oh well. I remember in high...

    Naturally Red

    I have naturally curly red hair and it is about waist length. I love my hair and get compliments on it all the time. I have some freckles and get more when I tan. The snow white skin is the downfall to being a true redhead at least to me it is. I don't tan very well in the sun...

    My Funky Hair

    It's always been a little bit red, but was mostly dark blonde.  I started dyeing totally red (and I think my complexion suits it) when I was about 15 or so.  Now I'm 30 and still red.  I love it.  So many people complement my red, curly hair!  It seems...

    My hair is a unique red, or so I am told.  My dad has fire-engine red hair, and my mom has black hair.  I came out with an exact mix of everything, red, blonde, brown, black, and even grey.  It's so weird, people are always asking me to come with them to the...
