cupertino - People with red hair might finally get their own emoji. Variant lacking now clear even among all hair and skin colors that people can choose. Red hair is discussed next week at a meeting of the Unicode Consortium, an alliance of major tech companies.
According Emojipedia and Mashable is still not clear whether there will be a red-haired man and a red-haired woman, or that every male and female emoji gets a red-haired variety. Between 1 and 2 percent of the world's population has red hair. The question is whether it is worth a separate emoji for them.
Unicode agrees with adding red hair, that might be introduced in 2018.
