Nowhere out of ordinary.
Naturally, I am a brunette and I am not a redhead but if that's you in your picture, you have very nice hair. Natural redheads are a bit more rare than the other haircolors, so that's probably why you always get dozens of comments. Also, if that's how your hair is naturally, it might be because your hair is wavy too. I have naturally really curly hair, (even though now I only wear it wavy kinda like that, not super curly anymore.), and when I wore it curly everyday everyone, even strangers, would come up to me and ask me if its natural, compliment me, etc. It got so annoying after a while.

But yeahhhh, that's probably why. : )

I myself am a natural redhead. Not the orange red but more of a darker auburn red. When I was younger, about 13 yrs old, my best friends mother thought that I dyed my hair this color and I always got when I would go to the hair salon "do you know how many women would kill to have your hair colour? So many women colour theirs to look like your's." I do get complimented on it quite a bit. I almost think it is rather flattering.

It's not just "more rare," I remember reading somewhere that only about 1% of the human population has natural red hair. There is a natural red head in my office, so beautiful!

I'm a natural redhead too, and I ALWAYS get comments. Mines curly too, and I'm lucky that it looks really good if I just let it air dry. People always say "oh your hair color is so pretty..and how long did it take you to curl it?" They get pretty mad when I say that's what it naturally does hahaha :smile: I hated being a redhead as a kid, but now I lovee it!

Yes it is true about the temper thing with redheads. I am very fiery...just ask my SO. LOL I also have the fair skin, freckles and burn in no time outside. I actually read an interesting article about redheads not too long ago. I will try to find it and post it on here later. It is quite funny.

Okay so I have now found the article.
Here it is http://www2.macleans.ca/2009/10/13/it’s-like-a-curse/
The part in it saying that :They claim that red hair to some signals a Celtic background (up to 13 per cent of Scots are redheads and up to 10 per cent of the Irish have red hair)", is very true, at least for me. My mother's side is both Irish and Scottish. The rest is quite entertaining and very interesting. I do have to go now, but will be back later to see what opinions there are on it.

I'm a natural redhead..auburn...and while I found it to be curse when I was a kid(school).. older people always had something nice to say about it..they loved it!)...as I grew up I appreciated it more...and people would comment on it often.
Red hair to me is something you don't always see so I think people notice it more?
Your hair is very pretty!
Now that I'm older its fading some..which I don't like...so love it while you can!!:flowers:

Because it's simply GORGEOUS!!! I have natural red highlights in my blonde hair and I always get told that I should become a total red head (but I don't dye my hair so that's not going to happen unless it occurs naturally!) but yeah... just totally gorgeous! It also helps that gorgeous women like Christina Hendricks va-va-voom up the glam level!!!
