I don't know.. I guess us Americans are just ..um "different" lol.... cause a lot of women here have dyed their hair SOME form of red in their lives at one point or another..even if it was just a few reddish streaks or hi- lights.

I know I did all through high school. You couldn't tell me NOTHING with my auburn dyed hair.. I did ruby red, auburn, mahogany red, burgundy, even had the nerve to have reddish purple streaks in the bangs one time.

Back when I was in school it was cool to dye your hair or part of it some form of red.
