It’s time I get something off my chest, you guys. I love redheads.
My friends can think I’m weird all they want, I love gingers and I don’t care who knows it. It’s time they admitted they shared my feelings, anyway. I know I’m not alone. HelloGiggles friend Mindy Kaling tweeted about her love of ginger men at the Emmys. Don’t believe me? Check here (we’re basically BFFs now that we share a common love… you know you’re jealous).
Redheads are awesome! And different! And usually have blue, green or blue-green eyes to go along with their auburn locks. And we’re all suckers for blue, green or blue-green eyes. I’ve never met a redhead who I didn’t think was attractive in some way, male or female. I know I find them attractive because they stand out, they’re unique and kinda, sorta, uncommon and I’m drawn to it.
We all know the saying “Gingers have no soul,” but I think what people meant to say was, “Gingers are so awesome that we can’t think of anything bad to say, so we’ll make up some nonsense.” I’d blame my love of all things redhead on the time I spent in Ireland, but I’d be lying. I’ve always loved redheads and I probably always will. My first crush was on a redhead (second grade, thank you very much) and I spotted him at the gym recently and, yup, still super cute.
I mean, hello, look at all the famous redheads bopping around Hollywood:
Damian Lewis: Super hunk AND BRITISH! (Redheads with accents get extra points.)
On that note: Kevin McKidd, who is SCOTTISH and so so manly (real men wear kilts).
Elsewhere in Shondaland: Kate Walsh, who gets to kiss Taye Diggs and get a paycheck!
Christina Hendricks: Running Sterling Cooper Draper Price for all those Mad Men (bottled, but we’ll forgive her…she looks too great!).
Deborah Ann Woll: Baby vamp Jessica! She’s so pretty!
Not to mention Ron Weasley… I mean, Rupert Grint! So cute and has his own ice cream truck; Lucille Ball: mother of all comedy genius (who doesn’t love Lucy?); Alyson Hannigan: Cool enough for two long running faves – Buffy the Vampire Slayer and How I Met Your Mother; Debra Messing: Grace to Will’s Will; Emma Stone: Naturally blonde, she chose the better color to bring out her sass. Julianne Moore, Reba, Marcia Cross, Amy Adams, CONAN! There are countless others and they are all wonderful!
Redheads get a really bad rap, but I think it’s high time to change that (because it’s unnecessary). Maybe we’re just all a little bit jealous of their beautiful, beautiful hair (I know I definitely don’t feel as special with my plain old brunette hair…but it does have some red highlights in the sun… sometimes!). There’s a pesky rumor out there that the redheaded gene will phase out of the human race if redheads don’t band together. This is the danger zone, you guys!
Just look at Prince Harry! We all know he’s the cuter Wales brother, even if he’ll never get to sit on the throne. Plus, he has that fun, wild, side that leads to naked pictures from Vegas. What girl would say no to that?!
Spread the love and share some of your favorite redheads below. And, don’t worry, haters gonna hate…and miss out on all the pretty.
