JULIANNE MOORE
Famed for her glossy auburn locks, the half-Scottish actress says she was teased during her school years for her red hair and freckles. The Still Alice star documented her struggles in her semi-autobiographical children’s book Freckleface Strawberry which she wrote for her children.

Natural redhead? Yes. You can’t fake a hue quite like Julianne’s.

ISLA FISHER
The Australian actress burst onto the silver screen with her crazed performance as flame-haired sister Gloria in Wedding Crashers.

ROSE LESLIE
If Jon Snow knows one thing, it’s that Rose Leslie got the role as wilding Ygritte in Game Of Thrones largely thanks to her blazing red hair.

Natural redhead? Yes. Her fiery personality is just as bold as her naturally auburn locks.

AMY ADAMS
Her breakout role in 2005 comedy-drama Junebug inspired Amy to colour her hair red, and she hasn’t looked back since.

Natural redhead? No. This is the kind of muted copper hue only a salon could achieve. Amy is a natural blonde.

FLORENCE WELCH
She’s been a red head as long as we can remember, donning a complexion-flattering shade of red with a blunt fringe with shaggy lengths.

Natural redhead? No. Florence is virtually unrecognisable in early performances with her natural brunette hair.

BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD
Her most recent role saw Bryce Dallas Howard’s cinnamon locks pulled back into a ponytail as she sprinted away from dinosaurs in Jurrasic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Natural redhead? Yes. Bryce’s siblings are all redheads too, no doubt thanks to their famous redhead dad, Ron Howard.

ARIEL WINTER
2019’s most dramatic hair transformation award goes to Ariel for emulating a little Disney magic with her newly red hair. The Modern Family actress gave us major The Little Mermaid vibes at a recent red carpet event.

Natural redhead? No. You’ll recall Ariel’s chocolate locks from early appearances in the hit TV show.

KATE WINSLET
We’re reaching a little bit here — but who could forget Kate’s signature ginger curls in Titanic?

Natural redhead? No. We’ll never know if there was room for two on that damn door, but we do know that the natural blonde actress went back to her roots shortly after the film wrapped.

KATE BOSWORTH
Is there a hair colour Kate doesn’t suit? She transformed her blonde locks to this high-impact shade of copper earlier in the year — tempting us all to do the same.

Natural redhead? No. From blonde to brunette to red, she’s changed her hair colour multiple times but remains a natural blonde.

ALEXINA GRAHAM
Alexina was the first natural redhead to be named as a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2017, and has fronted multiple campaigns for the brand since.

JESSICA CHASTAIN
The Molly’s Game actress has maintained the same hair colour for all of her film roles.

Natural redhead? Yes. If her porcelain complexion wasn’t a dead giveaway, then note the star is a natural born redhead.

LUCILLE BALL
Lucille was the poster child for red hair in the 1950s — complete with tightly coiled curls.

Natural redhead? No. The fact that Lucille was a natural blonde was shrouded in secrecy — with rumours stating her hair dye used to be locked in a safe to avoid her cover being blown.

CHRISTINA HENDRICKS
The buxom beauty’s name became synonymous with redheads following her role in Mad Men.

Natural redhead? No. After begging her mother, Christina began dyeing her natural blonde hair red at age 10 and has done so ever since.

BETTE MIDLER
She’s got a vibrant personality with equally high impact hair to boot.

MADELAINE PETSCH

Former Disney star Bella adopts a playful approach to her red carpet hair and makeup look — often donning a septum ring and acid bright hair.

EMMA STONE
Emma’s cycled her way through bright copper, berry blonde and burnt orange, but finally settled on this shade of red sand for this year’s Met Gala.

Natural redhead? No. This natural blonde prefers to keep things fiery with regular salon visits.

GERI HALIWELL
Her hair colour at the time was enough to inspire her Spice Girl moniker, and no one does red hair quite like Ginger Spice.
