This list includes notable people with natural red hair. Red or ginger hair may come in a variety of shades from strawberry blond to auburn.[1] With only 2% of the population having red hair,[2] it is the rarest natural hair colour.[1] People who have dyed their red hair into another colour or whose red hair has gone grey with age are included, but people with hair dyed red, such as Tori Amos, Amanda Blake, David Bowie, Ann-Margret, Lucille Ball, Rita Hayworth, Debby Ryan, and Sophie Turner, are not. Figures from the Bible or classical mythology, such as Esau or Judas Iscariot, are included. The list excludes characters from modern fiction such as Anne of Green Gables or Ginger Hebblethwaite.

The American Archie comics (1941- ) popularized the term "redhead"[citation needed] - the titular main character, teenager Archie Andrews, has red hair and a Scottish family background. His arch-rival Reggie Mantle often addresses him as "redhead" or "redheaded junk".
