Beautiful Redheads. Creating a book about Redheads has been an amazing adventure. We are producing stunning photographs of redheads of all ages and are interviewing all our participants about their lives as redheads. Our redheads must be red from birth. But, if you are 89 and grey, we invite you to participate. Once a redhead, always a redhead! We are looking for funny, intriguing and mystifying redhead stories and looking for redheads to photograph. Be a part of the book.

Check our our website for more redhead information, products, stories and links.

We are also inviting RED FRIENDS to submit your own redhead story. See our Red Friends Story Instructions and Sample below. Can't wait to hear from you.

Redhead # 7 - What happens if we have a curly, redheaded son?

I am a 31 year old Northwest redhead through and through. I was born in Auburn, Washington which is just south of Seattle. I’ve always thought that was rather funny living in Auburn especially since I have red hair. I went to Green River Community College and the graduated from the University of Washington as a Civil Engineer.

I am now a mother of my cute little Olivia. She has red hair just like me, my mother, father and sister. In fact, my whole family is sprinkled with redheads. So when Olivia came along she was not a surprise. Fortunately, being a redhead in my family was very reassuring.

However, being a part of a redheaded family was not necessarily up my husband’s alley. We met through a friend who showed him my photograph and he said “No, I’m not into redheads”. I guess he changed his mind once we met. We’ve been married for 5 years and when I was pregnant with Olivia, he announced to me “I don’t want to have a redheaded, curly haired son”. I was a little surprised with this announcement. He has curly hair and has never really liked it. So he packaged the two together assuming that having a son with all these attributes would be awful.

Right before we were due with Olivia, we went to a party and low and behold, a little curly, redheaded boy latched onto my husband. He was enamored by the little boy. He then realized that having a healthy child was the most important thing. Our first child is Olivia and she has straight, red hair just like me. I’m kind of hoping we’ll have a curly, redheaded boy next time. But don’t tell my husband.
