9 Things Only Redheads Would Understand

Oct 10, 2013

When it comes to hair color, redheads garner a very specific type of attention -- it's like strangers automatically assume you've granted them the right to touch, talk about and make fun of your coif simply because you're the only non-brunette or non-blonde for miles.

Here, we've rounded up some of the things only redheads (natural and bottled) would understand.

Being told what you can and can't wear by so-called "style" guides gets annoying. Redheads can and should wear the color red.

That said, choosing an outfit color scheme is damn near impossible. Amirite?

Highlights and grown-out roots aren't really an option. There's a reason you don't see too many redheads with ombré dye jobs. Unfair but true.

Also, will somebody please explain why people feel so compelled to physically touch red hair?

The most annoying question someone could ask you is, "Is that your natural hair color?"

Scratch that. "Does the carpet match the curtains?" is definitely worse.

Oh, and any mention of the whole "no soul" thing will be met with an epic eye roll.

Being called a "ginger" isn't even insulting -- it's just dumb and unoriginal.

But comparisons to Julianne Moore, Jessica Rabbit or any other attractive redhead are day-making.
