A recent issue of the National Geographic reports there are less than two per cent of naturally redheads on the planet and it’s very possible that by 2060 redheads might be extinct.
Natural redhead celebrities like Angie Everhart (first natural redheaded supermodel), Julianne Moore, Marcia Cross (Desperate Housewives), David Caruso (CSI: Miami) and Nicole Kidman are definitely part of a very small group.
The Australian Courier Mail picked up on the National Geographic’s findings and highlighted a number of great historical figures who were themselves redheads. The list includes Christopher Columbus, William Shakespeare, and Queen Elizabeth the First. Their list also included a few famous local Australian redheads: Michael Voss (Australian star football/soccer player) and Peter Beattie (current premier of Queensland).
The conclusion is quite obvious; most redheads (just like most blonds) are the product of very talented and gifted colourists! Naturally redheaded individuals might become extinct in less than a century, but the magic of hair colour will ensure that redheads live on forever.
