What is With Men And Redheads?
Men are fascinated with redheads. No, scratch that. Men are obsessed with redheads. I mean it’s like they get brainwashed when they see red hair on a woman and they become advent slaves. But why are they so freaking obsessed with the color?
Let’s try and put it this way: there’s a big red button and you’ve been told not to touch it but all your mind can think about is the big red button. How shiny and commanding it is, and who would make it red anyway if they didn’t want it to be touched because red is the color that gets us to do crazy things. It’s like that for men, except there isn’t a big ‘Do Not Touch’ sign so they do a whole lot of touching.
But, is this all, are men attracted to redheads just because of the color of their hair? Or does the red represent something more?
10 Reasons Why Men Are So Into Redheads
Are we just being paranoid, or do men genuinely have a weird fascination with redheads? We compiled a list of reasons why men seem to be infatuated so much with our ruby sisters.
1. Red represents danger
Not even kidding, a man legit explained that he gets the thrill of danger when he’s around a redhead and he can’t get enough of the rush it comes with. We get it though, everything that has a danger sign on it is red and humans are naively curious and the thrill of danger attracts us more than anything else.
2. Attracted to the genetic rarity
In our previous article, we talked about how the universe makes only so few redheads and this makes them stand out. Some men are attracted to this rarity. Think of it this way, Diamonds are pretty and shiny but red and black diamonds come in at such high demand because of how rare they occur. The same logic applies to our men’s brains when they see a redhead woman.
3. Their fair skin
We could write an entire book about how deeply men are attracted to a redhead’s alabaster skin and the sprinkle of freckles on their skin that you could probably use to pan out a constellation. Fair skin has been an attraction to males since, well, since the inception of the male species and they can honestly just be wholly engrossed with trying to match those freckles.
4. Redheads are known to be snobbish
This was a very weird reason but it makes sense. We are most attracted to the things we can’t have and for most men, dating a redhead is a dream that is constantly slipping out of their fingers. Literally, because a man can go out with a redhead but she most likely will end it soon after that. Men have admitted that they have tried to get with redheads and their efforts were barely acknowledged. They will spend time with you and then leave you on the cold hard ground. Ouch!
5. Hot sex anyone?
We talked about how redheads get the most sex but men claim that sex from a redhead makes them little fools with only one agenda afterward. The sex is evolutionary, something to savor and had me sweating for days after, just thinking about it.
6. They’ve got quite a temperament
There’s the stereotype associated with color and redheads have temperaments as intense as their hair color. Most men find this very, very attractive and when a redhead goes off on them, all the blood rushes to one particular boneless part of their body below their waists.
7. They are just so freaking sexy
Redheads provide the ultimate fetish for men. For a man to run his fingers through those licorice red locks is a dream come true and let’s just face it, there’s something distractingly sexy about redhead women. The ones I’ve come across anyway have this rich luxurious red hair, a body that screams sex and a temperament that begs to tame. I’m woman enough to admit that these females are sexy as hell.
8. They have a quick wit
If you are like me and you are obsessed with Suits, and Donna to be specific then you know what I mean when I say that redheads have such a quick wit. Donna knows everything, she sees everything and most importantly, she knows what you want before you even know it yourself. No wonder Harvey’s life goes into shambles when she’s not around. A redhead’s personality is something attractive and the fact she can keep a man on his toes is something that has so many men following her around like a love-sick puppy.
9. They are a combo of fun and killer
If you want to have fun with a redhead, then you should know there is no stopping for this crimson bombshell. She can go up into the morning with no signs of slowing down and then some. On the flip side, if she doesn’t like you, or something you said, she won’t hold her tongue and she might break a few bones in your body while she’s giving you the tongue-lashing of a lifetime.
These personality changes make women with ginger locks hard to anticipate, her mood might change at any given moment and anything could trigger this change and the men who like this find it entertaining sometimes.
10.They are loyal
It’s difficult to get a redhead on your side sure but once you do, her loyalties will always be to you and no amount of scary stuff will make her leave. Redheads have developed a thick skin because of all the discrimination they go through and this makes it hard for them to allow anyone in their lives but once they do, they are loyal to a T and you know that no matter what, you can always count on them.
Should You Be A Redhead?
Looking at all these great qualities redheads seem to pack, the question is, should you change to being a redhead too?
It’s your personal decision
Changing hair color is a personal preference and style for many. Redheads are more noticeable in a crowd sure but it should be more about how you feel about changing styles. Hair is hair at the end of the day and the color of it doesn’t affect much else but if you’re looking for something fun and flirty but screams danger as well, then you might various shades of the fire engine color.
Several celebs out there have rocked red locks and they pulled it off, and they inspire us to let loose our inner hellion. Celebs like Rihanna, Scarlett Johansson, and Amy Adams looked great in red and it is permanently Adams’ color of choice.
You’ll get more attention
Red attracts attention fast so you can be sure that more heads will be turning your way if you switch to red hair and people will be asking questions like if you’re a natural redhead and so on. Red just makes people curious so be ready to field a few creepers as well as genuinely nice guys.
If you’re wondering whether to do it, just take the plunge and dye those locks, what’s the worst that could happen? A few guys or 10 randomly stopping you and asking you to be their muse? And if you don’t like how the color looks on you, you could just always change it back to the original tresses or try out something different.
Although not all men are attracted to redheads, a majority of them are and you’d notice a slight change in excitement from your man if you say, dyed your hair a shade of red or just bought a red wig. Red screams out more than any other color for attention. It’s demanding and must get the attention it deserves.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
