Listmania Monday: Gingers

At some point, blonds stopped being the butt of all hair-related jokes and gingers became the, well, red-headed stepchildren that everybody mocks mercilessly. However, redheads seem to be having a sudden resurgence in popularity with such representatives as Emma Stone, Isla Fisher, Prince Harry, Eddie Redmayne, Ariel, and Merida. As such, many ya authors are getting in on this red-hot ginger action and providing awesome redhaired characters for us to love. Who's your favorite? (If you said Fred Weasley, you are my favorite. Also, dibs!) As always, please let me know who I've left off!

So...I think it's safe to say that Meg Cabot believes in the gingers! :D


  1. Although I'm a blonde I have always wanted to be a fiery redhead. I just think it is a kick-ass colour! :) Redheads are always shown as headstrong and brave!

  2. Cool list. I'm actually thankful I'm not a redhead, but I'm always drawn to them. My husband has red hair (as did my first husband/h.s. boyfriend...shhh). Am also drawn to many celebrities, from Axl Rose to Emma Stone. I always tell my husband that I'm going after Carrot Top if this whole thing doesn't work out. ;) They say the third times a charm. :)
