Over the centuries, redheads have been worshipped, idealized, feared, & condemned. Untrustworthy, fiery, hot-tempered, highly sexed, evil, deceitful, beautiful . . . what is true & what is myth? Here is a look at the science behind hair color & the roles redheads have played throughout history. In Greek mythology, redheads become vampires after they die; women with red hair were burned as witches during the Inquisition; in Hollywood, female redheads are considered sexy while male redheads are a hard sell; & in the 19th cent., redheads were believed to be the strongest scented of all women. Redheads have been stereotyped, sought after, & made to function as everything from a political statement to a symbol of human carnality.
