18 Alluring Mexican Redheads – Yes They Exist & Look Beautiful

Somewhere in this crazy world of ours, there are people who don’t believe in Mexican redheads. They don’t “believe” in them as if gingers from Mexico are unicorns, mermaids, or some other mythical creature. That’s such an outdated notion, and it has no basis in reality.

Anybody who thinks that redheads only come from Ireland or Scotland obviously hasn’t traveled far beyond their own front yards because red hair is everywhere.


Unveiling the Beauty of Mexican Redheads

Mexicans with red hair are just like redheads from anywhere else—that is to say, each one of them is different.

People don’t follow a formula, and neither do hair colors, not unless they come out of a box or a tube. Not only do Mexican gingers exist, but they’re beautiful. Together they encompass a rainbow’s worth of red shades.

#1: Dark Red Long Hair

#7: Ginger Sunset

The orange undertones and bright ginger highlights you see here are prevalent among some Mexican redheads. It depends on the region where someone is from, and where their parents and grandparents are from, as well. Just as with redheads from the United States, Ireland, Scotland, Africa, and everywhere else in the world, hues vary from place to place.

Boxer Canelo Álvarez is more than just a world champion three times over. He’s more than “The Great Red Hype,” as he’s known among fans, and he’s more than just a celebrated athlete. Obviously, he’s also a redhead—and it’s no surprise that he’s considered a heartthrob, either. As if all that buff stuff ain’t enough, the boy’s got a gorgeous head of hair—and he knows what to do with it.


#9: Sunset Spirals

These curls give me life! I’m feeling my girl’s eyebrows, too, but let me focus on the hair. What is it with curly red hair? It’s irresistible. Who else just wants to tug on one of those spirals and watch it “boing” back into place? Just me?

She also stands as stunning proof that red hair, freckles, and even blue eyes don’t belong solely to any ethnicity. On the subject of her hair, relaxed beach waves are ideal for hot climates, whether you’re at the beach or not. To achieve this look click here.


#11: Undercut Curls

Woof! If there’s anything I love more than an undercut, it’s a curly one. This is a true red, with a vibrancy that puts me in mind of strawberry blonde, although there’s no blonde to speak of. I guess what I’m saying is that there’s a deeper undertone that keeps it from being carroty red.

When you have luscious curls like these, it’s practically your duty to give them rich color! Many Mexican redheads with light skin tones go with lighter shades of red. Maintain those curls minus the frizz by using a diffuser.

For a light skin complexion and dark eyes, maintain the balance with a medium red hair color. A true Mexican redhead is comfortable with showing off their hair texture with bold color. Let your waves stand out by working product through to accentuate their shape.

Who doesn’t find a long-haired Mexican redhead attractive? With long light red hair featuring a dark base at the roots and a few face-framing layers, you’ll confidently rock your favorite dress anywhere.
