As a natural redhead, I always felt that I lacked the confidence that blondes or brunettes seemed to have. As I’ve grown older, my confidence has been getting better. I was never the redhead that was bullied for having red hair, but I was shy and was well aware that I stood out in a sea of blondes and brunettes.
After seeing the movie, “Being Ginger,” (pictured here at the screening with my fellow Select Influencer, Brenna Belletti) I realized the message behind the movie was: without confidence in yourself, you are unfortunately less attractive to others. The main character, Scott, realized everyone is different and each person has their own insecurities – in his case it was his red hair. For many of us who follow How to be a Redhead, it has also been our red hair that greatly affects us and sets us apart from the crowd. All redheads have to find oneself through love and self-acceptance.
Eventually, all redheads will gain confidence knowing that our uniqueness is actually quite beautiful and attractive to others. We should flaunt it and embrace being a redhead. Remember, we are very special since we make up only about 2% of the world’s population! Some people are even envious of our hair color.
Embracing what we once tried to dismiss is a step closer to being more self-confident.
Rock it like a Redhead!
