Laura McNeill, 15, Schoolgirl, from Glasgow.
'The best thing about my hair is people notice and compliment and make you feel nice. Usually old grannies but also school folk in my year. Boys say unhelpful stuff but I had it through primary so it doesn’t bother me. In Tenerife they would grab my hair and look at it and be touching.'
'When I go up the highlands people are more complimentary. Lots of friends sent pics saying its going extinct and I am dead for sure. I don’t enjoy slap-a-ginger day, hug-a-ginger is better.'
