As redheads, we have a lot of shared experiences regardless of where we are from. Here’s a list of 10 things all redheads have probably done or experienced:
1. Immediately go for the lightest shade of foundation
The worst thing is when even the lightest shade is still too dark or too orange.

6. Had a stranger stop you to compliment your hair
We do enjoy the compliments, though.
7. Had someone ask if you were related to the only other redhead in the room
Nope, being a redhead doesn’t make us related.
So accurate 🤣, sometimes very awkward 👩🏻🦰, but so funny! #relatable #gingertok #redhead #fyp
8. Had someone ask if you were Irish
And no, not every redhead is Irish.
9. Had someone ask if your hair was natural
Almost every redhead has heard “is your hair natural?” and then “I knew it had to be” when you say yes.
10. Had a hairstylist tell you to never dye your hair
They know how much money people pay for hair like this.
