Having an auburn 'do and porcelain skin has always been a beautiful look, but now it seems it'll become even more unique.
The research showed that the redhead gene came about due to an evolutionary response to lack of sunlight and Vitamin D in the northern isles of the UK.
So if the climate changes as rapidly as it has been, the thought is that the gene will die out.
Do not fret, auburn locked ladies, this does not mean you, as it's generations down the line yet...
Fancy becoming part of the dying breed? Why not take some inspiration from these red headed celebs.
