Gingers rejoice! Redhead emojis are here

Redheads around the world are delighted as the long-awaited redhead emojis have finally arrived.

The new emojis are available as part of Unicode's 11.0 update which is being rolled out from today - so no need to panic if you aren't seeing it yet.

Twitter users have been celebrating today after years of waiting for an emoji to accurately represent their fiery beauty.

Some people have frankly gotten a little bit carried away with the power.

While others pointed out missed opportunities to roll out the redheads.

The website HowToBeARedhead.com, who were among those campaigning online to get a redhead emoji, created a video to explain why they feel it took so long for the emoji to be created.

Redheads aren't the only ones celebrating today as the update also includes emojis for people with curly hair, people who are bald and people who have beards.

Also among the 157 new emojis available are cupcakes, superheroes, bagels, toilet paper, kangaroos, and llamas.
