Anonymous asked you:
What do you think about that it is IN to have red hair? Almost every second person has red hair nowadays.
It’s great that people like Christina Hendricks, Emma Stone, and Florence Welch spread love for gingers by choosing red. Credit also to Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kristen Stewart, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Evan Rachel Wood, Kate Walsh…. and so many more.
Personally, I love when people appreciate red hair enough to choose it for themselves. <3 If people feel they are redheads at heart, I think they should go with it! :).
It seems like the only thing natural redheads sometimes complain about is that red-at-heart people didn’t have to grow up with all the ginger stuff. I mean, they probably weren’t called carrot-top or Pippi Longstocking, after all. Maybe it seems like they didn’t pay their dues to earn their gingerness, haha. Maybe people who are red-by-choice could help us out with our “issues” in this area just by being understanding :). Anyway, those are my evolving thoughts of the moment. Thanks for commenting.

whatnotandwhatnot said: I have mixed feelings about the dyers who choose to go red. Part of me is super proud of them for recognizing how fun being a ginger is. Part of me is like, “Gah!!! You’re a fraud!! Liarrrr!!” But you know… to each his own. Red is still awesome!
Sounds petty but it generally irritates me purely because I was always mocked for it and now that it’s popular, everyone else is claiming the trend and I am asked if I dye my hair in line with trends! Crazy, but if nice people go red I’m happy to welcome them. Compassionate redheads are so beautiful!
