When is National Redhead Day 2019?
This year, the National Redhead Day 2019 celebrate on 5th November.
History of National Redhead Day:
Every 5th November, National Redhead Day is also known as Love Your Red Hair Day in the United States, the United Kingdom and other parts of the world. Although the rest of us natural brunettes and blondes may throw a little shade, people with red hair get this one day to celebrate their most rare of hair colors.
We have two redhead sisters to thank for coming up with Love Your Red Hair Day or National Redhead Day. In 2015, Adrienne and Stephanie Vendetta wanted people to be proud of their red hair in response to negative posts on a Kick a Ginger Day site. (The term, ‘ginger,’ is seen as a derogatory description of people with red hair.” As part of their slap back, the women created their website, “How To Be a Redhead,” which eventually added Love Your Red Hair Day.

5 Colorful Facts About National Redhead Day 2019:
The rarest of the rare? Red hair and blue eyes
Though you may think redheads typically have blue eyes, you are wrong. Very few redheads have blue eyes — in fact most of them have brown.
Redheads grey slower
Another plus of being a redhead is that their hair turns to grey slower than other hair colors. So enjoy and embrace that color even more!
Redheads tend to be left-handed
Beating out both blondes and brunettes, more redheads are left-handed than any other hair color. Yet another thing that makes them stand out.
Redheads have fewer hair strands
According to research, redheads have on average 90,000 strands of hair. This is fewer than brunettes who clock in at 140,000 strands and blondes at 110,000.
Redheads are better at making Vitamin D
Redheads are great at making their own Vitamin D. This is likely because they have less eumelanin in their bodies than other hair colors, so they’ve got to make up for it somehow.
Why We Love National Redhead Day?
Authentic redheads are rare
Only 2% of the world’s population has red hair. Now you see why it’s worth all this celebration.
Redheads are considered mutants
No, not the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle type. Red hair is caused by the mutation of a gene that creates a new recessive gene, MC1R.
Red hair is royal hair
Another reason to celebrate redheads today (and everyday) is the fact that much of the British royal bloodline were redheads. Queen Elizabeth I herself was a proud redhead — and passed that gene down.
