It seems that we rely more and more nowadays on emojis to help us express just what we mean when we're messaging people. From sharing all our favorite foods to sending just the right laughing face emoji, there still is one underrepresented group, and that's redheads.
Newsbeat reports that Jeremy Burge of Emojipedia has tweeted that the new potential emojis will include redheads, white-haired and bald emojis.

According to the tweets, it seems that a range of hairstyles is being modeled after actors such as Kit Harington, Jessica Chastain and singer Ed Sheeran.
The tweets also indicate that the new skin tones and hair colors will be available in an update by 2018. Also, this will be a cause for celebration for the 21,000 people who signed the campaign to have redheads introduced.
