Attention all redheads, if your fiery locks are real please stand up and be proud. We’ve all heard the clichés about blondes, brunettes, and the nicknames for redheads but did you know that the likelihood of you being a natural redhead is less than 2 percent?

There is a lot of complicated science behind hair color, eye color, etc. and if you are born a redhead it means that your mom and dad both carried the MC1R gene, which is a mutated recessive gene. In other words, the odds are not in favor of both parents carrying this particular gene. Redheads are practically a downright miracle!

It’s easy to spot a redhead and they do tend to turn heads in public so much so that some people will go to extremes to acquire the same unique look. Being a fake redhead is no easy task. A lot of time, expense, and maintenance are needed to obtain those gorgeous ruby locks. So for those who can’t do it naturally there are always red hues and highlights.  I suppose you can chalk it up to the luck of the Irish when a true redhead enters the room.

A few of our favorite famous natural redheads are Julianne Moore, Jessica Chastain, and Prince Harry. Each one them offer a touch of class and even some royalty. Redheads can be fun, fierce, and fabulous but most of all they are rare. Whether you are a natural redhead or you’re striving to be one be sure to strut those strands and enjoy life!
