Redheads know that people talk a lot of rubbish about how their hair affects the way they act – and the same goes for clothes. Just as red hair is supposed to make you bruise more easily (it doesn’t) and have a short temper (look – just do one OK?), there’s also loads of myths about what redheads should and shouldn’t wear. But all this bossing around is just because people are jealous. After all, it’s a scientific fact that redheads are less likely to lose their hair. Which means in the future you’ll still have good-looking locks while your mates have to get creative with caps and comb-overs.
And those freckles? They’re the ultimate beauty spots. It’s not for nothing that Hermione chooses Ron over Harry Potter. So here's our insider guide to looking fashionable with flame-coloured hair. Ignore the haters and reclaim the carrot-top look – if Cumberbatch can do it, so can you.
