Do they exist?  I actually did see one somewhere here...I think she was half black so she had african american features with freckles and curly red hair! I always thought that was pretty much the most intriguing and exotic combination you could have...so rare!  I would guess most are probably mixed since it sees it is usually near impossible for natural redheads to tan.  So dark skinned redheads, if you are out there, stop by and drop off a pic!  I'd love to see some natural ones for the rarity aspect, but if it's dyed that's ok too.  I might take the plunge myself some day...

She was redhead, and tan...but she had worked SO hard to get tan that it had completely dried out her skin

I can tan, I go a walnut colour so it's pretty dark (my dad's from Kazahstan so I think that's why) but I look hideous with it so I tend to avoid tanning. I also go freckly

scary

Hmm interesting so it IS possible lol...you have gorgeous hair by the way.  Maybe it depends on the tone of red as to whether it looks good.  I actually saw someone with Beyonce toned skin the other day who had her hair this wine color.  It was obviously fake, but it didn't look ugly or anything.

It's possible, although areas like my legs and stomach go sustantially darker than my face does.

I've had several. Twinka (Famous art model from the 70's) was very dark in the summer. But it IS rare.

Aah I totally wish I could find that lady...there's an african american mixed model on here that has naturally curly red hair and the most freckles I have EVER seen on one face lol.  Soooo unique.  I've seen people post her pic before on mm and I think it was probably in a freckles forum or list.  If anyone knows who I'm talking about let me know lol...can't believe I didn't list that or something.

But actually now that I think about it, there are full black people that have red hair.  My grandma is one of them.  I've also seen a Mexican man with natural red hair and tanned skin.

Here you go, this is Marshall, he's Mexican.  There are a lot of red-headed Mexicans in Northern Mexico but most of them aren't that tan.

Edit: eh, In my archives I have photos where you can see his hair as red as it is in person.  But it's like that of the girl above.

Yeah, I was searching for pictures in google using tons of different search words with absolutely NO LUCK lol, but I did find something in a science journal while I was reading along called "rufous albinism" which sometimes occurs in African people.  Apparently it's pretty rare and instead of giving you light skin it gives you red hair.  Just thought that was interesting.  Are you mixed with irish?

Wow... you're so beautiful!

Tanned redheads are a rare and mysterious breed. I've always envied them, they seem to have this exotic and athletic aura about them.
I once saw an Australian girl with long red ringlets and tan. I had a bit of a girl-crush on her, but now I can't find any pictures of her.

Cool.  Kinda reminds me of my redhead friend.  She says when she tans her freckles all sort of melt together into one big whole body freckle tan he he.

Hey,  I'm Mexican-American and had reddish blonde hair as a kid, but not Irish, I'm of Welsh Decent.

Um, Here's some info on Irish in Mexico

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick's_Battalion

http://flag.blackened.net/revolt/mexico … an_ps.html

As I write this, I can literally see Nogales, Sonora, Mexico from out my living room window.  If I walk down the street of the city of 300,000, I'll probably see one or two red heads. 

They're more common than you might think.  Probably more common in this area than black Mexicans, but we have Chinese, German, etc.  it's very diverse.

edit:  I might actually talk to a chinese guy in Spanish in Mexico this afternoon for a story I'm doing.

and a month ago, I interviewed an Irish Mexican, but his family wasn't from that battalion, I don't think.

My wife has natural red hair and tans very dark.  Her mother is part Armenian and although you can't tell that heritage in her features, you certainly can in her skin!

I had a friend in high school that was... AND blue eyes on top of it... needless to say she was "taken" all the time and I never got a chance to ask her out. lol But let me tell you, they are striking and of course very difficult to find.
