If you could choose your hair color, what would it be? Maybe, you are happy with your natural color and don’t want to change anything. On the other hand, perhaps you want a lighter color, like blond hair, or a darker color, like black or brown hair. You might even want an unusual color, like green or purple! Or you might want to have red hair and be a ginger.

We use the word ginger to describe a person who is born with red hair. This expression comes from the red ginger plant. Since red-haired people have hair that looks like this plant, we can call them gingers.

In some cultures, ginger people get teased for their hair. People might even call them unattractive or say their hair is weird! However, in other cultures, red hair is considered very beautiful. Singer Ed Sheeran is a ginger. He says that when he was younger, people used to say he was not attractive because of his red hair. However, now, he is very famous and many women like his ginger hair.

Do you want to have red hair?

Once i got that ginger color on my hair. There was so much attention from the world on it. I still don’t know was it out of compassion or passion ;).

The color red is the color of blood, fire and passion. Of course being a redhead as a child is no fun,  as kids can be very cruel. But it pays off going through that torture. Now I am considered to be a sensual woman with a magic touch like a unicorn , ahahahah!

No thanks. I don’t think that ginger people are unattractive quite to the contrary they are special because there is not a lot of them.
