Gingers Are Set To Get Their Own Emoji This Year
Emoji lovers out there will be delighted to hear that there are 157 new emoji options coming to your phone this year. And people boasting a particular hair colour will be especially delighted with the news.
Yep, redheads across the world, rejoice - gingers will finally be represented in emoji form by the end of 2018 on Apple and Android phones.
Red hair is just one of the new hair styles that have been included in the line-up set by the Unicode Consortium - a non-profit organisation which sets the standard emoji for users worldwide.
Some of the other new hair-dos in the new emoji guidelines include curly, white-hair and bald-headed emojis - well, baldies that look like actual people, anyway. In all of these, there's bound to be one that looks like you.
Of course, 157 new emojis is quite a lot, so there's plenty to keep emoji fans entertained once they're done finding the one that best represents their hair-do.
The consortium's new guidelines boast a wealth of new animals such as kangaroos, llamas, lobsters, swans and mosquitos, as well as activities like sewing, knitting, lacrosse, and skateboarding. Niche.
Some of the more 'fun' emojis include an ultra-lovey smiley, hot and cold faces for extreme temperatures, a partying face and super-heroes/super-villains. Whatever a person can feel, it'll probably be in there.
CHECK OUT THE GALLERY DEDICATED TO REDHEADS:
No doubt red-headed folk will welcome the fact they're about to be given greater representation by software makers, given how incredibly awesome they actually are.
Scientists have found a whole wealth of benefits to having the rare hair colour - namely that they have sex more regularly than anyone else. No doubt they use the aubergine and splash emojis quite a lot too then.
"The sex lives of women with red hair were clearly more active than those with other hair colour, with more partners and having sex more often than the average," said German sex researcher Dr. Werner Habermehl. "The research shows that the 'fiery redhead' certainly lives up to her reputation."
Researchers have also found that redheaded people have 'genetic superpowers' such as being able to tolerate more pain than people with other hair colours and requiring more general anaesthesia to put them under. They even look younger than other people their age.
Being a normie is so boring in comparison, so no wonder they're giving us the chance to be cartoon superheroes. Redheads can just be themselves.
