This will be so much fun! Finally a Redhead emoji update is on the table after Ginger Parrot’s petition and now we are so close to have redhead emojis on all the Apple products! After having so much diverse cartoons and different types of hair and skin colour, the last option with red hair is finally coming.
(Redhead emojis as imagined by Emojipedia)
The released proposal by Unicode is about the technical implemention of the redhead emojis and about the discussion next week! This is not only interesting for redheads, for example this will be also great for all Ed Sheeran and Prince Harry fans as well!
Ginger Parrot: „It goes on to outline the options for adding red hair into the current emoji keyboard. These include simply adding a standalone redhead in the same manner as the ‘person with blond hair emoji’ to be able to change the redhead’s skin colour, or another option is to rather trickily slot a new red hair modifier in within all of the existing emojis where hair/skin colour can be changed. The document outlines the pros and cons for each of the options, which are expected to be discussed next week.“
So Thank You Ginger Parrot and the rest of the redhead community for this amazing work!
