Red hair or ginger hair occurs naturally in one to two percent of the human populationappearing with greater frequency two to six percent among people of Northern or Northwestern European ancestry and lesser frequency in other populations. It is most common in individuals homozygous for a recessive allele on chromosome 16 that produces an altered version of the MC1R protein. Red hair varies in hue from a deep burgundy or bright copperor auburnto burnt orange or red-orange to strawberry blond.
Besides the obvious similarity as heads-of-state, all three had red hair. Hair color ranges from platinum blond to ebony, due to levels of pigments produced by specialized cells called melanocytes. Those with dark hair have cells that produce a pigment called eumelanin, and those with blond or red hair have cells that produce pheomelanin.
So I have to ask, has the pendulum swung too far? Is this too much of a good thing? As you can see, Hawkgirl has always been depicted as a redhead in the comics.
How would you describe a typical redhead? Do you think of Julianne Moore: light skinned and beautiful, with rust-coloured hair and a flush of crimson through her porcelain cheeks? Or do you think of Ed Sheeran?

Having red hair is something I'm very proud of, despite the negative comments I get from close-minded people. If this is the first time you have ever considered that there are people who hate redheads just because they are redheads, then it is already quite apparent that you are not a redhead. Being a redhead is a unique experience.
Fiery locks, freckles and fair skin is often a result of a gene mutation in the melanocortin 1 receptor or MC1R, and is seen in about one to two per cent of the global population. It occurs when both parents carry the receptive gene, even if they don't have red hair themselves, and is historically most common in climates where there is little harmful sun exposure. In Ireland and Scotland, about 35 per cent of people carry the gene and roughly 10 per cent have red hair, leading to the trait often being associated with Celtic origins.
