It's a sad reality that the ginger-topped folks among us sometimes get treated like, well, redheaded stepchildren. But that shouldn't be the case, considering how many very lovely ladies have dabbled with red hair dye.
We happen to think the following famous flame-haired ladies actually look better when they break away from boring old blonde (or brunette). See what we mean after the jump.

Nicki always keeps her colorist busy, but this fiery 'do best suits her explosive style.
Dunst went red to play Mary Jane Watson and never looked better.
Special Agent Scully may have been a carrot top, but in real life Anderson is blonde.

While it's not as red as it was in "The Fifth Element," Jovovich has gone back to the hair color that made her famous.
Producers asked Prepon to dye her hair red when she played girl-next-door Donna on "That '70s Show."
The singer has messed around with all sorts of of shades of red, but our favorite is this sexy 'do.
Recently, Scarlett's hair color has been more befitting of her name.
Danes has been getting blonder and blonder since her days as Angela Chase on "My So-Called Life."
