Being Ginger - August 13th 2009, 11:30 PM

Yup, I am a read head, carrot top, ginger. And I'm bloody proud of it too! Over here in England, ginger people get quite a lot of stick from people in the street. I don't know what it's like anywhere else.

So, I was just wondering how everyone on the site felt about those who are a little more orange inclined. Personally, I love being a red head. I think it gives me an excuse to act a little bit zanier than I would if I had brown or blonde hair.

Any other proud red heads out there? Or how about those who dislike it?


If you love Totoro;
I love you :]

I wish I was ginger, honestly. I love red hair :] I'm naturally a brunette but I strangely get called ginger at school because my hair has a bit of an orangey-red tint in the light. It doesn't bother me at all, all in good jest!

I'm sorry... This is the disney kid in me.
Ariel (The Little Mermaid for all y'all deprived folks) had red hair. If a disney princess did it then it must be cool. End of.
In all seriousness though one of my best friends has red hair and I think she's beautiful. I don't think it matters what colour hair you have, its what you do with it.
But I agree with Stephanie, red hair is beautiful, I'd kill for that kind of awesomeness!! (:

My best friend afew years back was gay AND ginger. He got A L O T of crap thrown at him because of this combination.

I don't see why someone should have such a strong dislike of the hair colour or the person sporting it.

Apparently in America being a red head is saught after and seen as being attractive. Strange how different we can be, huh?

I've considered being a red head afew times, the kind of Ashlee Simpson red. Know the shade I mean? I really like it and I have to admit that the only reason i've not done it is because of the abuse red heads get around here. It's not something that would make my life any easier.

I do love the shades though.

I totally dyed my hair strawberry blonde at one point because I was so jealous of you guys - I've gotten so many more compliments as a redhead about my hair than I ever got as a blonde. I know, I know, it's cheating, but... . Really, you guys have fabulous hair and I wish my hair was red naturally!

I'm going to move this to Fashion and Style, though, since it's kind of related to style and so we can get our Fash On. [Yay Old Navy commercials!].

Just to add... it only just came to me otherwise I would have thrown it in earlier.

I wanted to go for that shade of red, too. I wouldn't care about what kids say about my hair, but my parents and sister want me to keep my hair blonde, and they called me a freak for wanting to change it. I want to be different, and stand out. So many girls have blonde hair, and theirs is much lighter than mine, so I feel like I'm inadequate.

So, my hair is naturally blonde, but occasionally I wish for red hair and get the desire to wash my hair with a temporary rinse, just to see how I'd look. Personally, I think that anything but black would look good on me.

Heck yes! Her hair might be dyed, and it seems like an out-of-control shade of red, but I'd think that'd look good on me, too. I dress in neon colors, so maybe crazy-colored hair wouldn't make a difference XP.

Re: Being Ginger - August 14th 2009, 03:23 PM

Im a very red headed red head
The only thing that annoys me about it is its harder to put random colours in it. :P
But yeah its okay, if i do get stick from it, ie people calling me ginger etc, i just congratulate them on being observant :P They stop!!!
So yeah it's okay, also people in the US and France seem to like it a lot...

Ginger pride. (:
I, personally, love my red hair. Where I live (I know three other gingers. Total.), there's a bunch of blondes and brunettes. Especially at my school. Everyone can find me by looking for the only redhead on campus, haha.
But, I don't get too much trouble about it. A few jokes, but the key is to laugh about it and make fun of yourself. I'm the one cracking ginger jokes half the time. However, I get a LOT of compliments on it. People come up to me all day and tell me about how they wish they could get my hair color from a bottle.

There isn't many around where I live but there's a few "strawberry blondes" if that counts...? I don't have anything against them I just prefer black hair . Shame that I won't suit any other hair colour than what I have =/. Although if the person does look like Hayley Williams then I guess I could get to know you a little

I'm a ginger!! And I'm proud of it My hair is quite a dark shade, sort of a mix between ginger and auburn. I'm lucky in that I've only ever had a small amount of crap about it, and many more compliments! It's a bit of a nightmare to look after though, being wavy/curly and almost waist length :P!!

I think it's perfectly fine. A few of my friends have a thing for redheads, actually.
Wear it proud. :)
