What is it about redheads that we find so intriguing? What is this strange power that they seem to have over us? What is it about red hair that always makes us look twice?
Well, first up there's the rarity factor. Only about 2% of the global population are born with red hair which makes them pretty special. Most natural redheads have brown eyes, a smaller percentage have blue eyes, and the rarest combination of all is red hair and green eyes.
Secondly, it's the color itself that we are drawn to. The color red has the longest wavelength meaning that it's always the color we see first (hence why emergency lights and vehicles are red). It's a powerful and exciting color and we associate these traits with women who have red hair. Whether it's fire-engine red, scarlet, maroon, cherry, copper, auburn, strawberry blonde, ginger, crimson, garnet, or ruby, redheads will always be the first to turn heads when they walk into a room!
