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.

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).

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.

Lucie is an art, music and ginger-hair-loving freelancer who will happily discuss the science behind your hair with people’s retreating backs anytime.
She spends her days writing, making things, scouring Etsy for accessories and anxiously awaiting the new series of Broad City. This nearly 30-something tries to schedule in at least one walk a day, in case her hips seize up.
Her hair is somewhere between brown and ginger, so she optimistically thinks of herself as a redhead, and (rather thankfully) has the skin and eyebrows to back it up.
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.
A natural redhead fleeing the Big Smoke for the seasidey shores of Suffolk, Ally has grown to accept sun lotion as a permanent fixture in her life.
She believes tea is the answer to most problems and spends her spare time writing. She has a wild imagination and loves creating YA urban fantasy novels featuring mermaids, magic and romance.
The only thing Ally loves more than writing (and tea) is spending time with her young family.
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.
This music, cheese and cat-lover joins the GP team not as a ginger herself but as mum to two ginger boys.
Following a misspent youth memorising musicals lyrics, Becky worked as a journalist and PR in London before moving to Kent where she now lives with her ginger-ish husband and absolutely gingerful rugrats.
Becky spends most days running her offspring like puppies at National Trust properties and most evenings recovering with her crochet, The Walking Dead and a glass of Baileys. Other passions include cookbooks and scooping eleventy-billion tiny pieces of LEGO back into their box every night.
