Nicole Fox-y

It's funny, because as I've gotten older, I've started to appreciate things that I was ashamed of as I was growing up.

What am I talking about?

My red hair. 

My first holiday was a trip to Hong Kong when I was 18 months old, and apparently those guys didn't realise what hit them when I bounced off the plane, a thick head of dark red hair in tow. I think I got quite a positive reaction; they'd never seen anybody in real life with hair my colour.

As I grew into my teenage years, I got a bit of stick for being a red-head. I don't mind the term red-head, but I'm most definitely not g*nger. 

That word offends the shit out of me; the only time I refer to that word is when I call myself Gi-Chi - G*nger/Chinese, because I also happen to be part faux-riental.

I dyed my hair a lot from about 16-19, but for the past three years or so, I've been au-naturel, apart from a stint during Summer 2010 when I dyed my hair jet black. Bit of a mad one that, looking back now.

I've grown to love red hair on girls; just look at Isla Fisher, Lois Griffin and Faye Reagan (but just don't look at her in work)

Anyway, I just caught the last episode of one of the cycles of America's Next Top Model; I'm not sure which season, I'm not as up-to-date on ANTM as I'd like to be.

The winner was Nicole Fox, and funnily enough, she was an absolute FOX.

So here is Ms. Fox - the inspiration behind this post.

Amazing, no?

So girls, if you've got red hair, then embrace it; it's actually boss.
