What color high lights would look good with dark hair? I was thinking a reddish auburn color. ?

Image by yeah that’s my question, and this next question is kind of awkward but …


  1. No, that is not ture. I know a couple of men that have dark red hair.

  2. Yes this is true. It stems from the prevalence of the MC1R gene amongst men. Women have a much higher count of MC1R so tend to have a darker auburn hair colour. Men tend to just be gingers. Some suggest that women have ginger hair but it only looks red because it is longer. However, one only needs to look at the likes of Rocky Dennis from the film Mask or Mick Hucknall to see that this is not true. I would be interested to hear of any male celebrities who could be considered to have auburn hair.
