Mesmerizing Photos of Redheads Doing What They Do Best: Being Beautiful

What is it about redheads that some of us – the sane ones anyway – find simply irresistible? Is it really just the hair color, or is there something else, some ineffable quality that we can’t pin down?

Maybe it’s the contrast between fair skin and rich hair color. Maybe it’s the rarity; red hair occurs in only 2% of earth’s population. Maybe it’s the glimpse of a seemingly unnatural color that stands so far apart from other hair tones. We think that it’s probably a combination of all these things, because there are as many reasons for attraction as there are redheads in the world.

As a testament to this fact, we’ve gathered a selection of some of the most beautiful redheads on the planet. Read on..

24. Movie Gaze



So here we begin with an image that seems straight out of a movie. The lush green grass surrounding this pale beauty and her deep red hair adds a perfect colorful contrast, similar to the way red hair plays against the usually paler skin of those who own it.

23. Untamed Frame


Well we began with one woman on her back, so why not add a second? This woman’s gorgeous face is surrounded by a sea of light red in a spectrum of shades. Her simple dark dress lets her eyes have all the focus, mesmerizing as they are.

22. Forest Nymph



So this may be some sort of wood nymph. We just realized that there’s something undeniably attractive about redheads in a woodsy setting. Despite the unnatural brightness of her locks, we think she looks perfectly at place in this natural environment.

21. Wildly Unnatural


Not every redhead is natural, and that’s a very okay thing. In fact, we love seeing redheads so much, we encourage anyone with the guts to try the color on their own heads! Sometimes, going for a wildly unnatural look can work wonders.

20. Strawberry Bliss



Speaking of unnatural colors, we love the bold neon red of this woman’s hair. Did you know that the genetic combination of red hair and blue eyes is the rarest of all?
