Interesting :

Percentage of the population of people with red hair in Europe

https://www.reddit.com/r/MapPorn/commen ... h=a77f30f9

The colors of the map are tricky : except the grey, the darkest is the fewest.

I would dispute the map because I seldom meet other gingers or redheads

Most ginger headed and red headed people seem to come from Scotland or Ireland :-s

Perhaps they have dyed their hair ?

The colors show a percent amount but does not tell how many people it targets.

In France, the image we have of Irish people is red hair/green eyes :-D

Many years ago I lived in a village where all of a sudden there were several ginger headed babies, turned out to be the local milkman :ymdevil:

The World's Largest Redhead Festival Was Founded by a Blonde
Every fall thousands of redheads gather in the Netherlands.

I should launch a movement promoting chestnut people. All about Blond or Brunette or Ginger hair in literature… We are the silent majority in France. :D

Beside light chestnut hair have a mixed composition of "eumélanine" (dark and fair hair) and "phélomelanine" (red hair).

So chestnut is the sum of all hair. Mine have blond and copper gleams in summer.

But I am still jealous of red-hair :D

Fortunately, my hair has faded but you certainly would not have been jealous of my carrot top :ymdevil:

Perhaps you should try lemon juice on your hair in the summer, it may well make your hair a lot brighter

Lemon juice makes hair dry. Cider vinegar is better.

A museum in Paris has an exhibition about red-hair people :

Red hair ! From Jean-Jacques Henner to Sonia Rykiel.


Why are there so many redheads in the works of Jean-Jacques Henner ? This exhibition will address this frequently-asked question. Paintings, caricatures, writings and letters have been studied to shed new light on the work of this artist whose use of redheads became his signature. They provide a better understanding of the way the artist worked with one colour in particular: red.

Through an enlightening exploration of Henner’s works, the exhibition provides insight on the perception of red hair during the 19th and 20th centuries, without venturing as far back as the Greek-Roman traditions, when, in the words of Michel Pastoureau: “red hair was always viewed unfavorably”. Whether a feature of pride, as it was for Sonia Rykiel, or heroized through the Belgian comic strip character, Spirou, “the mischievious boy with a big heart”, red hair stands out, attracts but also marginalizes. What does it mean to be a redhead? How is red hair portrayed? This exhibition will focus on these questions.

You could also download their booklet :

And I think that the French pages are more detailed :
