RedHead Facts & Info

The highest percentage of natural redheads in the world is in Scotland (13%), followed closely by Ireland with 10%. In the US, about 2% of the population are natural redheads.


The country name of Russia means "land of reds" in honor of a redheaded Viking by the name of Rurik.


Archaeological digs in the Chinese desert of Takla Makan found mummified redheads dating back 3,000 years.


Adults have about 120,000 hairs on their head; redheads have fewer, blondes have more, brunettes have the most.


Redheadedness is, genetically speaking, a recessive trait. It may appear after several generations of darker hair.


Redheads don't turn grey. Red hair turned sandy, then white.

RedHead Quotations


Once in his life, every man is entitled
to fall madly in love with a
gorgeous redhead.
Lucille Ball


Of course, part of the problem with redheads
is that there aren't enough of them.
They make up just two percent of the
population. So they're pretty extraordinary.
Redheads are too numerous to be ignored,
too rare to be accepted.
Grant McCracken, from his book
Big Hair: A Journey Into the Transformation of Self


Man, you ain't lived
Till you've had your tires rotated
By a red-headed woman.
Bruce Springsteen
