He’s talented, he’s ginger and sorry ladies, he’s taken! Multi-millionaire Ed Sheeran has made having red hair not only seriously cool – but seriously hot too.
According to a new study, the The Galway Girl singer has transformed the love lives of men suffering from what’s been branded the “ginger curse” and made flame-colored hair a hot commodity.
“It’s unsurprising that redheads are attracting more attention than in previous years,” says a spokeswoman for Casumo who commissioned a study among 175 ginger men and 1,000 women and discovered that between one in five 25-34-year-olds have had more female attention since Ed shot to fame.
“Ed has shown how his appearance has no effect on his talent and more people are embracing their natural color,” the spokesperson continued. “The Ed Sheeran Effect” – as it’s been dubbed – has left one in twenty females preferring red-heads over other hair colors and of the women who were asked their opinions on ginger men, over a third agreed since Ed become hot stuff there are now more positive perceptions around coppery curls.
