Man Crush Monday: JP Sears

Man Crush Monday: JP Sears
It is with rarity and surprise that I tell you now I have a crush on a celebrity man. A ginger celebrity man. Not Prince Harry. S Nay, a fellow by the name of JP Sears, whose work I’ve only recently become acquainted with. JP performs satire on the current zeitgeist: the yoga, whole foods,... Read more »

On Being Different, Part 2

On Being Different, Part 2
I’m lucky to have been born a redhead with an unmanageable mop of curls. Because of the red hair, I’m used to standing out, being different. Because of the frizz, I’m used to life not being polished. Have to be resourceful and work for what I want in life (defined curls). Over the past few... Read more »

On Being Different

On Being Different
I am unique. And not in the “I’m a Millennial, look at me!” way. Instead, I am statistically unique: 2 Percent: I have the rarest hair color in the world: red. 1 Percent: Even rarer, I have the rarest hair/eye combination in the world: red/blue. 1 Percent: I have the rarest personality type in the...

Fourth of July Redheads

Fourth of July Redheads
Red hair, white skin and blue eyes for those of us cursed to have the most unique hair/eye color combo in the world; what could be more patriotic? A few years ago, I wore purple or another redhead-friendly but not America-friendly color on the Fourth of July, and I was yelled at for being unpatriotic.... Read more »

Christina Aguilera Is Now a Redhead

Christina Aguilera Is Now a Redhead
I would never consider Christina Aguilera a style icon. She’s always too much: too much makeup, too revealing of clothes, hair too blonde for her coloring. And as you know if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, I DESPISE fake redheads. Specifically the ones who love to talk about how feisty they are... Read more »

Redhead Days Festival Carrot Cake Competition

Redhead Days Festival Carrot Cake Competition
This weekend, a dream I never even knew I had came true: I judged a carrot cake contest at Redhead Days in Highwood, IL. I gave myself permission to ignore my doctor’s advice and my (mild) dairy & egg allergies in order to participate, because I couldn’t let a few rashes and my throat closing... Read more »

Happy Mothers Day to Redhead Moms

Happy Mothers Day to Redhead Moms
Happy Mothers Day to all those of you cursed to have your very own ginger kids! I know my mom has struggled with having not one but two kids with tresses of rust. Here’s why: 1. Neither of my parents have red hair. In fact, they both have brown to very dark brown/black hair. When... Read more »

No Gingers at Grammys

No Gingers at Grammys
Why are there no gingers in music? Florence Welch….who is bottled. Meghan Trainor just dyed her hair red. Who else? We have Isla Fischer, Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Jessica Chastain, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman (formerly), Lindsey Lohan (formerly), etc. etc. Why aren’t redheads musically talented? Is this a strange part of our MC1R mutation? Oh... Read more »

Beyonce Super Bowl Controversy

Beyonce Super Bowl Controversy
Do you ever stick your foot in your mouth? I did, on Super Bowl Sunday. You know how most girls respond to compliments by degrading themselves? Like when someone says they look great, and they respond that they don’t, but if only they had a thigh gap, then the compliment would actually be valid. Yeah,... Read more »

    thegingerphiles

    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.
