Here at Ginger Parrot, we’re in love with delivering the latest news in redheaded Fashion, Music, Film, Celebrities, TV, and more.
But you want to get to know the face behind the name, right? Okay okay, you’ve got your way.
Below is the round-up of the gingerful (and not so gingerful) team that puts together all this cutesy, quirky new stuff for you to read and re-read about.
Emma – Editor
Emma dresses herself in mismatched multi-seasonal clothing and has a talent for sniffing out the next opportunity for coffee.
She believes that any new band with a female musician is the next big thing and that whoever is currently dating Ryan Gosling is the luckiest lady on earth.
Her biggest obsession is shopping online for castles, (probably) fueled by childish fantasies of finding her prince and settling down for a life of luxury, bathing in a pool of gin and bitter lemon.
Other than that, though, she’ll be incessantly researching the latest gingerful news to deliver to Gingerkind.

Lizzie, despite being a non-ginger (besides her genes), loves redheads and her freshly dyed red hair.
She also loves political satire, vintage fairs, Yorkshire Tea and people with the surname ‘Weasley’. One day, she hopes to be opening letters addressed to Mrs. L. Cumberbatch, but until then she’ll be travelling for long periods of time in campervans and attending every music festival she comes across.
And if Caitlin Moran is ever up for Prime Minister, she will get Lizzie’s vote, no problem.

“It started off more of a deep red, and Disney was like, Why don’t we take Bella all the way to blonde again?’ I don’t know why, but I had a breakdown and so overreacted. I wanted to go back to red.”
Born and bred in the land of Orange, Holland, Claire currently lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, the land of the highest proportion of natural gingers in the world, lucky thing.
Beside her little ginger brother, Claire is the only redhead in her family. She doesn’t mind too much though, as her true passion is travel, which helps with her second biggest passion of searching for the first Harry Potter novel in as many languages as possible.
So far, she has collected copies in 23, from Russian to Hindi, and she won’t stop till she has all of them.
It doesn’t matter that she doesn’t understand all of them, because she knows the story word for word anyway.
Illustrator and all-round awkwardness lover, Laura brings to Ginger Parrot its weekly dose of Ginger and Biscuits doodles.
After graduating in Fine Art, Laura found that her forte was in illustrating those cringeworthy moments you’d prefer to be tucked away and never mentioned again. Horrible university interview? Draw it. Terrible date? Another drawing. Shamefully sunburnt (AGAIN)? “Where’s my sketchbook?”
Besides drawing, the proud redhead spends most of time attending to her two overly demanding cats, both of which can’t be in the same room as each other without hissing and spitting.
Molly comes to us all the way from sunny California, U.S.A.! Making home movies with friends at an early age has led Molly to become a Film and TV fanatic. You can catch her yelling angrily at horror movie victims, or rewatching one of her faves, LoTR, for the 400th time.
Nicknamed ‘The Mollinator’, this redhead lives for positivity, and is sure there is a correlation between her love for life and her daily coffee intake. She may have an unnatural fear of escalators, but her biggest ginger accomplishment was being called Merida by every child while working at Disney World.
On a regular day, Molly can be found passionately reblogging adorable kitten gifs (ginger ones, OBVS), or staring at the ocean for the existence of mermaids and the Loch Ness monster.

Born and raised in Alabama, U.S.A, Elizabeth’s life is practically like being a Weasley. Her mom, dad, sister, and brother are all ginger, if you can believe her genetic luck.
On any given day, Elizabeth would rather be travelling to and from anywhere, but with a particular penchant for Paris and its ‘Ooh, la la’.
As a cute ginger kid, Elizabeth just wanted to be blonde and ‘fit in’, but now she (quite rightly) embraces life in the funnest shade: RED. All who teased her about not having a soul were just jealous that they didn’t have the rarest natural hair colour in the world.
After a stint teaching at elementary school (we’ll behave!), Elizabeth is now a freelance writer, whose biggest dream is to publish a children’s book. She’ll be reporting in for Ginger Parrot as a Redhead Fashion and Beauty expert.
Ginge by nickname and ginge by nature, Bec is a vegetarian feminist with a penchant for mountains of cheese and TV.
She spent almost a decade in London but recently moved back to her ginger roots in the north, currently living in not-always-sunny Manchester.
Her biggest fears are seagulls and fish tanks, but she loves bananas and toast, so that’s good.
Niamh is our Irish redhead. She spends most of her time explaining how to pronounce her name to anyone who isn’t Irish (it’s Neeve, by the way), and hunting for leprechauns.
A self-confessed nail-biter and chewer-of-pens, her favourite gingers include Princess Merida, Clary Fray, Amy Pond and anyone belonging to the Weasley family.
This firm believer in magic checks the post every day for her Hogwarts acceptance letter and likes to sing and play her (almost always) out-of-tune guitar.
Her ultimate dream is to hide forever under a table at the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London, only to be coaxed out by J.K. Rowling herself.
This chicken nugget and lollipop lover (not together, ick) comes to us from Michigan, USA.
Aside from studying Communications, Emily is a plus size model, but she still finds time to overdose on celebrity gossip in between.
Emily will be applying her incessant wit and sarcasm skills to all-round redhead-friendly subjects, with motivational confectionary in hand (and mouth).
