I have redhead men on the brain. M.I.A.’s Born Free. Prince Harry’s summer visit to NYC. Jimmy Fallon’s joke about Conan O’Brien at the Emmys. Gingers have been in the news recently. And, earlier today, one of my Twitter followers — Roland Hulme of MilitantGinger.com — was kind enough to give me great health tips about my low levels of Vitamin D. So, today’s Manly Monday topic: Ginger Guys.
Redheads come in all shapes, sizes and hues. There’s even a sassy cocktail called the “firecrotch.” Though the recipe varies by bartender, ingredients are typically equal portions of Malibu rum, mango juice and cranberry juice. Mix and top off with a splash of soda and fresh lime juice. iDrink has a version with crushed ice, mint leaves and Absinthe. Try it. But, enough about firecrotch cocktails and back to sexy ginger men.
I like ‘em. Whether faux or natural, strawberry blond or brilliant orange, there’s something kind of sexy about guys with red hair. Rewind to the 90s. Teck Money from Real World Hawaii (the one with Ruthie) had bottled blondish-reddish hair. Remember Eric Stoltz? He was arguably the sexiest and most famous 80s redhead. I’m blanking on current celebrity ginger guys. Question: Are redhead men sexier than other dudes because they have a special X factor? And, who’s your favorite redhead celebrity (male or female)?
