Do people realise that natural redheads tend to have freckles when they say they like redheads?

Or is it just redheads as in people with obviously dyed red hair?

As a natural redhead I notice so many people say how oh so special and attractive they find red hair or that it's even their preference but on the contrary these same people then also say that "freckles are gross", "disgusting", etc etc.. so that's one hell of a turn off, right?

That just makes me wonder: do they realise that natural gingers usually have freckles when they say that they like/prefer red hair?

  • As a natural redhead I find this odd too. "I love redheads but freckles are gross"
    Um hello redheads typically have a lot of freckles. I have known some people who are natural brunettes who have more freckles than me! I only have like 3 on my face the rest are on my arms (the tattoos cover some of them though)
    How to tell if its a natural redhead? We burn in the sun without sunscreen thats usually a first sign of a real redhead. Freckles is also a sign but like I said I know people who are not redheads with freckles. Everyone I have dated was shocked I was a natural redhead (when my hair was dyed black) cause I dont have all the freckles but my light eyelashes and eyebrows (which I dye too) well say different lol.

      Yes, my cousin is half Korean and he got dark brown hair but he still inherited the freckles haha, that are still far more common in redheads though

      It is but after awhile negative comments become jokes to me. Why care what strangers have to say?

      Lol and usually by the color of their eyebrows or worst when they have visible roots

  • For me its the perfect combo. I don't fancy all redheads but I will always check them out.

    I love freckles too, I think they add character and depth to the face.

    The girl in the picture is very attractive in my eyes, her hair, her freckles, her eyes, wow.

      Lol ALL the time, I'm going back to red before my vacation ends but I won't stop using concealer on my freckles. I've heard so many people say it's gross, even to me without them knowing I have freckles myself & they really don't suit me

    • 3mo

      I'm actually sad to hear it. I thought you would be the opposite. Is it because you have very pale skin, I know that certain complexions don't look quite as good with freckles. Red hair is always a head turner though so changing back is a smart move.

  • Yes, they do in fact have freckles. Guess who has two thumbs and likes both red hair and freckles..

      Nope, doesn't work if you are genetically prone to getting freckles and this is coming from a freckled person who's using sunscreen spf 50+ on a daily basis

      Lol the girl in this is cute. She reminds me of ginger cookie 😂 and the orange skin tone plus hair plus freckles go really well with her. Freckles are bad when they are way too much or distributed unevenly or basically look like small pox or something lol

      Oh, I meant in general to everyone.

      & Freckles are adorable to me. :3 My grandmother is a natural red head and I love hers too.

  • I love freckles, I love red heads. I'm not a natural red head. Both my grandfathers were and I'm pale enough to be a natural red head but I am actually blonde in reality. But yeah I like freckles.

  • My redhead friend wears foundation to cover up most of her freckles and there's a lot of bottle red heads around (ariel the mermaid). All that must contribute to their ignorance. She looks good besides lack of eyebrows.

      People say that allll the time. It's because we are our own worst critics, you'd start to dislike them on other people too if you spent time looking at it in harsh lighting like we do to ourselves.

      I am hot a red head and don't have freckles, but if you ask me i would say red heads are the most attractive and rare race.
      You have are like blessed and not exaggerating many people consider natural red heads (Pure White Skin) as something heavenly and yes they include freckles too.
      Freckles are beautiful and they are attractive. That's the reality.
      I am not a red head and i say red heads are indeed the best creation of GOD so beautiful

      It still seems like an awful lot don't though, if you pay attention to it when the topic comes up - it's probably one of those things that polarise though like you either like freckles or hate them
