My Favourite Beautiful Redhead Actresses - With Pictures

Updated on August 20, 2013

Red is the color of fire, of passion and of heat.

And these lovely redhead ladies certainly live up to all those great attributes.

Although there are many other colors in Hollywood, red is a rarer shade. Please note that I can't guarantee that all the girls below are natural redheads.

Although these girls are from the newer generation they certainly give Lucille Ball a red run for her money!

Below you'll find some redheads who are both well known as well as some you may not be quite as familiar with.

If you love all hair colors check out my beautiful brunettes and beautiful blondes as well!

Amy Adams

This lovely Italian redhead is one to watch!

She's played parts in movies including Catch me if you Can (cheeky nurse), Cruel Intentions 2 & Drop Dead Gorgeous (Cheeky Schoolgirl!).

She's also starred in Enchanted, Charlie Wilson's War, Julie & Julia and Leap Year.

She didn't enjoy high school but regrets not going on to college.

She also pursued a short career as a ballerina.

This redhead is a singing, dancing, acting superstar!

Alyson Hannigan

This redhead has been keeping true to her self on our screens for over a decade now.

My personal favorite, Alyson Hannigan originally came to attention as the nerdy and naïve Willow in Buffy.

By the time the show ended she'd developed into a street smart and very sexy witch.

She's also starred as the nympho bride from the American Pie movie series.

Interesting facts: Alyson married one of her former Buffy co-stars, Alexis Denisof.

Alyson is of Irish-Jewish descent.

Jayma Mays

This is one not so sweet and innocent red head to keep an eye on!

With her major introduction to TV audiences as the sweet and over-sensitive Emma Pillsbury in the hit show Glee, she's become a well known actress.

She's also been seen on Ugly Betty and Heroes.

There's no word of up coming movies but we're hoping this budding actress will one day grace the big screen!

Interesting facts: Jayma was raised in Grundy, Virginia.

      I think red haired women are interesting. You've put together a nice group, and it's helpful that their photos accompany the writeup. Your collection of facts are interesting. This is a nice, reader friendly piece.

      Fun article. I would've included Rose McGowan and Julianna Moore as gorgeous redheads. I had no idea Wesley married Willow. Lol, awesome.

      I am/was a huge fan of the show THE OFFICE (u.s. version). Amy Adams was actually in an epsiode on season 1 entitled Hot Girl. I've always liked her a lot !

      Out of all of them I think Alison Hannigan is the prettiest which is weird cause I usually don't pick her. Her locks are beautiful thou look dyed w/ the dark roots and eyebrows, nice though. For red haired actresses I think I'd say Nicole Kidman, Rose McGowan, but red hair is really pretty but not everyone looks good w/ it!
