Check out the Victorian Pre Raphaelite paintings.... so many of the

In my experience, bullying is usually caused through jealousy as much as it does insecurity and ignorance. I've always thought red-headed people to have very attractive looks and it is amazing the different shades of reds there are, from bright orange to deep copper and a dark reddish brown. Sarah was described once as having "titian" coloured hair.
For my part, I used to have a kind of non-decript mousy brown coloured hair which started turning grey in my 20s (hence my nieces call me Uncle Badger!). But what I noticed was that when I grow my stubble longer, there are flecks of copper colour in it, which is rather nice.
