Now as a child I was always tall, and I didn't WANT to stand out any more than I already did. But by about age 16, standing out for anything positive was something to be desired. Unfortunately, that is about the time my hair settled into the UNcolor (that cross-section of blonde, brown and red with no actual commitment to any of them)
It took a little time to see MEN could also be very attractive with red hair... I think the red hair and blue eyes is sort of boyish, but MAN, I've known a couple brown-eyed red-haired men who were drop dead gorgeous. And since then, I've seen some with blue or green...
What I DID NOT know until recently, though, is that red heads have different PAIN RECEPTORS than the rest of us... now I don't know enough genetics to know if this is an absolute 100% correlation or not, but it is significant. Redheads don't feel pain as strongly. Their BRAINS are actually DIFFERENT. That is not to say you can't hurt them, just that the receptacle doo-dads are different and so they tend to have greater tolerance.
But mostly, since it's Friday, I just wanted to share some of the red-heads I've admired over the years.
|I loved her humor. You could tell she loved to laugh.|
|I wanted to be Daphne so bad... never mind that Thelma was the smart one.|
|The origin of the 'too precious' misconception|
|Oh, Scully... beauty AND brains...|
|I think Nicole actually has the un-color hair I have naturally.|
|My Buffy honeys... Alyson and Seth (he is actually a redhead, too)|
|I hadn't heard of him, but when I searched redheads and saw him, I got palpitations...|
|My favorite redhead family, less two...|
|Then there is macho stud Charlie...|
|And bill... the hot Weasley...|
So there is a little redhead love for you...
