Redheads rejoice as new ginger emojis to launch this summer
The red-haired characters will be part of 150 new graphics added to the collection in 2018.
Redheads all over the world have been celebrating a victory for "ginger equality" as 2018's new emojis are announced.
Men and women emojis with red hair will be available alongside 150 other newbies set to be launched in the summer.
The website Emojipedia revealed the new set that will be available on your iPhone and Android smartphones from June this year.
Those with curly hair and those without any hair will also be represented but it is the announcement of the redhead emoji that provoked the biggest reaction.
Twitter user Ulrich J van Vuuren said: "This is the MOST exciting news I've seen all week! Redhead emoji is finally on the table after a campaign for ginger equality. We are being recognised."
Sarah Akins was also excited about the update as she tweeted: "Redhead emojis are finally coming!"
Twitter user @shawmeister85 added: "As a mum of two ginger kids this brings me joy."
@Rachbythesea warned her friends to expect a lot of ginger emojis when they launch in June.
She said: "Every single tweet/message from me will feature a redhead emoji."
However, not everyone was entirely happy with the new collection.
@Matty13 was disappointed to see that there was no redhead among the new superhero collection.
He wrote: "Glad to see the new additions. The lack of redheads has seriously impacted our inter-family emoji use. But no redhead superhero."
Meanwhile @LindsayLogueTV just can't bear to wait until June.
She said: "@elonmusk put a @tesla into space and we have to wait four months for a redhead emoji? WHAT IS HAPPENING."
Other emojis launching in the summer include:

The collection will also include; a lobster, a toolbox, a teddy bear, a freezing face and a partying face.
New emojis are designed and approved by the Unicode Consortium which decides on which new characters should be introduced.
