This type of hair is a result of the recessive Mc1r gene in both parents. Even though that is the case, the chances of a redheaded baby are low as 25%, even if the recessive genes are available.

This photographer who does photography internationally in the entertainment industry Brian Dowling has done a photo shoot on Redheads across many countries.
