Red Hair Fading Acceptance

Red Hair Fading Acceptance
“Babe, your hair is getting so blonde!” my hairstylist said. “What are you doing to my beautiful red hair?” “Nothing. It’s fading,” I said, nearly in tears. My coworker S has been telling me lately that he thinks of me more as a blonde than a redhead. Le sigh. “Are you going grey? You’re too... Read more »

Redhead Turning Blonde?

Redhead Turning Blonde?
Last week, the worst thing ever happened to me: I was called blonde. Let me set the stage for you: My co-worker used the phrase “redheaded stepchild” and I (somewhat jokingly) called him out on it for being offensive. Then he apologized and said he forgot he was talking to. Which led him into saying... Read more »

I got a notification in my Google Alerts for redheads for this Craiglist ad. Apparently, the man prefers dyed redheads over natural redheads. Isn’t that odd? Anyone else heard of this?

The Carpets Don't Match the Curtains

The Carpets Don't Match the Curtains
Today, I got my first ever wax. Down there. A chatty Polish woman, with dyed blonde hair, spread hot wax on the most sensitive part of my inner thighs and then tore it off while talking about the weather. For once, I got over my nervousness about telling someone that I’m nervous, and it paid off.... Read more »

Pumpkin Spice Hair Trend

Pumpkin Spice Hair Trend
So apparently, pumpkin spice-colored hair is now trending. Here’s my advice to all of you about this: Basic bitches and red hair don’t mix. Oh and uh….only basics dye their hair red. #Sorryimnotsorry, but you’re not a real redhead. Until you have the MC1R gene mutation, you’ll just never ever ever understand what it’s like...

Confessions of a Faux Redhead

Confessions of a Faux Redhead
An anonymous person submitted the following to me to post, so I figured I’d indulge her: “My name is Georgia and I’m a fake. Despite having both maternal and paternal aunts with red hair, I didn’t make the cut and was born with nondescript no-color brown hair that clung to my head like a scraggly... Read more »

Ginger Pro-Phile: Adam Lambert

Ginger Pro-Phile: Adam Lambert
HOLY SHIT! My friend N. just BLEW MY MIND. ADAM LAMBERT/GLAMBERT IS A GINGER!!! AND NOT EVEN THE DAYWALKER KIND. How did I not spot one of my own? I did feel something eerily familiar when I looked into his hauntingly blue eyes on the TV screen, and I did wonder how someone with his... Read more »

Another one bites the dust...

Another one bites the dust...
Yet another celebrity dyed her hair red and made national news despite it looking horribly fake. But extra points for dying the eyebrows red too (according to E! News or some shit like that). Speaking of which, it’s weird when she was blonde she had dark eyebrows and now that she’s going darker she’s making... Read more »

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
