A beard that’s red,
and hair that’s not.

Redbeards are everywhere. They're our brothers, fathers, lovers, and friends. It’s a worldwide phenomenon that nobody seems to notice. Why do so many men, despite hair color, have beards of a reddish hue?

I've heard that only 1 % of people are natural redheads, but if they factored in facial hair, that percentage would certainly rise. We may never understand why the face is such fertile ground for fiery whiskers, but I for one find it fascinating. So I seek out these ginger-faced gentlemen, and sometimes take a photo.
