Redheads are notoriously a mysterious species amongst the human race. Not only are they few and far between but for some reason, they hold a certain level of beauty that is really hard to put your finger on. Whether it’s a celebrity or just someone you know we often wonder how it would be to live as a redhead. Well, maybe you don’t but I sure do. A redhead is basically the unicorn of the human race.
Redheads or Gingers occur naturally in 1–2% of the human population. It occurs more frequently (2–6%) in people of northern or western European ancestry, and less frequently in other populations. Red hair appears most commonly in people with two copies of a recessive allele on chromosome 16 which produces an altered version of the MC1R protein.
Red hair varies in hues from a deep burgundy or bright copper (reddish-brown or Auburn) through to burnt orange or red-orange and strawberry blond. It is characterized by high levels of the reddish pigment pheomelanin and relatively low levels of the dark pigment eumelanin. It is associated with fair skin color, lighter eye colors (gray, blue, green, and hazel), freckles, and sensitivity to ultraviolet light.
Cultural reactions have varied from ridicule to admiration; many common stereotypes exist regarding redheads and they are often portrayed as fiery-tempered.
