Redheads, as they say, wear the map of Ireland all over their faces. Sorry, ginger-haired English Prince Harry. Ireland has the highest per capita percentage of redheads in the world -- anywhere from 10 to 30 percent, according to Eupedia , a website that explores European genetics and ancestry. They are almost equally prevalent in Scotland and other pockets of Celtic pride.

Unless you know who they are, it's highly unlikely you got that. In real life, human appearances tend to be very varied even amongst the same ethnic groups.

Red hair or ginger hair occurs naturally in one to two percent of the human population , appearing with greater frequency two to six percent among people of Northern or Northwestern European ancestry and lesser frequency in other populations. It is most common in individuals homozygous for a recessive allele on chromosome 16 that produces an altered version of the MC1R protein. Red hair varies in hue from a deep burgundy or bright copper auburn to burnt orange or red-orange to and strawberry blond.
