When you have red hair, you get used to people making a Big Deal about it — for both positive and negative reasons. I like to tell people I was named after Amber St. Clare — i. Where was I? Oh yeah: when you have red hair, people mention it. A lot. Far from it. Er, I DO have a fairly hot temper, so if you want to assume that all redhe are the same, then you could certainly say that we have fiery tempers.
If you want to assume that all people with a particular hair colour are exactly the same as each other, though, well, I for one will probably lose my temper with you. Many, many times now. Or brunette! Yes, if you dim the lights and kind of half-close your eyes, my hair could totally pass for brunette! Dodged a bullet there! Wanting a redhead friend mean, what a HORRIBLE thing to say to someone: especially to expectant mothers, who seem to be the group most often on the receiving end of this insightful thought.
And that pregnant women will want to hear it. Amber, thank you for your article. I suspected some of these things, but l never knew to which extent they were going.
I come from a part of the world where natural redhe are very rare and l have always wanted to be one. Right now I am sporting redhead look again. I think that your colour is incredibly beautiful. I have just met a redhead British friend. BTW, I love your blog. The comment most heard in school about my redhair was are you related to so and so? They have redhair too…As if every redhead is some how all from the SAME family…maybe all refugees from Wanting a redhead friend leprechaun island somewhere.
Why is your lack of sanity so bad? It makes us annoyed when you ask idiotic questions like that. I agree with your post totally. Us redhe should campaign together to stop such wicked beliefs and opinions. I recently moved from Italy to UK and guess what? Love this post!
Love this article, I have heard all of them, a bunch just this week. And tried to explain to me not only was that okay, but spoke like they were an expert even when I tried to speak back. I am a lovely long haired ginger woman too and besides from lovely older ladies sidling up to me on the bus and complimenting me on my hair colouring I am always asked if it real? Or out of a bottle? Love Jillxx. A friend of mine has two daughters with red hair.
Yep heard all of those! Great, thanks. Oh how I can relate to everything!! You could call it hot tempered but I say it was justified!
Gingerism thrives in Australia too, probably because of our British heritage. You might get called Fanta Pants over here. I was so jealous of their red hair, and love redhe with their pale skin. I have red hair, I work in a hospital and due to the high turn over of people I get asked 2 to 3 times a day if my hair is natural and told how I should never dye it because people pay so much to get my natural colour?? I have reddish more like an auburn hair and people used to comment on it all the time as I was growing up.
This post made me laugh so much. Why do people find that so hard to believe?! The freckles are no problem but it turned out red hair does not suit me. As for the second last point — generalisation is stupid but most of the time I have to admit I like red hair on girls better; many of those cute little boys I see tend to have a rather carroty shade of red which is not my preferred nuance. Burn her! I might have imagined that though…if I did in fact read that somewhere, it makes it even more bizarre that people are so crap about red hair. Maybe because my cousin is a redhead and I thought she was the coolest person alive.
Adding up to the lista: I live in Brazil where people usually love redhe. It must have suited well cause I tend to get the most funny reactions when I tell people my hair Wanting a redhead friend actually brown. Same here! You HAVE to have. My husband has red and very curly hair and so many people comment and say his hair would be lovely on a woman! He is also a very hairy man and has red curly arm hair and general body hairso he does get a few orangutan comments. His son is staggeringly gorgeous and the brightest copperiest fieriest red imaginable — and my brother loves him to pieces.
I love this post! I love my hair colour and I adore yours!
And the Tim Minchin song? And as for ginger guys not being cute? This is so true Amber. I am a redhead and have gone through exactly the same things. You have the bullying at school and when you grow up you kind of think people may have moved on from being that shocked at ginger hair. Like yes. I know thank you. It is so weird in my eyes.
Maybe this is an American thing…but the comments I most often hear about redhe are about their pubic hair. We get those here too, unfortunately — I find it so hard to understand why people think pubic hair is EVER an appropriate thing to bring up in normal conversation! Oh how funny, it rhymes, never had that said to me before! I get creepers here in the U. My hair is now dyed red because it has started to desaturate in color to prepare to go white Pretty silvery stark white YAY so I dye it and I have a stripe of Wanting a redhead friend which is awesome and I love.
But I also have super curly hair. Well then I know why you were named Amber! Must be because of your hair.
This was a comment by a fairly intelligent person and as for Katie Hopkins saying things like gingers are harder to love, I know its how she gets her fame but its callous and heartless. My ginger family are beautiful inside and out, intelligent and awesome. Thank you Amber for giving a positive perspective. My daughter 4 months old has verrrrrry red hair albeit sparse all over her head.
Then people proceed to ask how she got red hair. All I can do is shake my head Haha! I am not a redhead but I would never say any of these things to a stranger! My youngest son is red. The rest of our family is blond. Yes, my husband looks at me sideways sometimes.
Or his family has unacknowledged gingers in their woodpile. From the kids at school he gets: 1. Gingers have no soul 2. Your mother dyes your hair 3. Your mother should bleach your hair 4. And sometimes enraged. But well-sunscreened. I love the well sunscreened remark?? I got comments about the fiery temper as too. Her experience was very different than mine. Thanks, South Park. My mother-in-law has red hair so the genes are definitely there. I was a tiny bit disappointed when my son was born with blond hair.Wanting a redhead friend
