While variations in MC1R gene account for the majority of the redheads, about 10% of people with red hair have been reported that do not carry any variation in their MC1R gene. In addition, some red hair carriers can exhibit freckles and red hints in their hair. Although the exact scientific reasons have not been provided, it is hypothetized that hair and skin color in human are controlled by multiple genes. Among them, the MC1R gene plays an important role.
