67 Of The Most Legendary Redheads Of All Time

In honor of National Love Your Red Hair Day.
|

We definitely don't need an excuse to celebrate the awesomeness of red hair -- but just in case we do, today is the day. Nov. 5 is National Love Your Red Hair Day.

According to NationalDayCalendar.com, the holiday was created this year to "empower redheads to feel confident, look amazing and rock their beauty" and encourage people to share photos of their hair on social media using the hashtag #LoveYourRedHairDay. It's a noble cause -- and one that everyone can get behind, whether you have red hair or not.

Full disclosure: our love for gingers runs deep. Real-life redheads like Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman make us want to run to the salon and go crimson. And we're head-over-heels for fictitious reds like Annie, The Little Mermaid and our all-time favorite, Anne Shirley aka "Anne of Green Gables."

Not only is their fiery hair swoon-worthy, but these folks have got the type of sass, success, and self-confidence to back up their standout looks. While they might not all be natural-born redheads, we still appreciate their ability to pull off a red-hot mane.

So, in celebration of National Love Your Red Hair Day we've rounded up 67 famous redheads that we absolutely adore. Check 'em out and let us know if we've missed anyone in the comments section below.
