Alyson Hannigan reveals why Willow was a redhead. It's from an interview to mark the launch of Head and Shoulder's "The Good Girlfriend Guide".

"Joss [Whedon] had us all over to his house," Alyson says. "Charisma and Sarah and I all had brown hair at the time. Joss said, 'All of your hair is kind of the same shade. Does anyone want to be red?' I went for it. Eventually Sarah got more and more blond, but it was because we all had a brownish, auburn mane."

Wow that site sure doesnt work on the iphone. I'll have to check it out tomorrow.
What a curiuos information. Never knew that was the reason Willow ended-up being a red head.
electricspacegirl I've put the relevant info in the extended field description.
Just when you thought there wasn't anything new to learn about Buffy...
Or it's because redheads are awesome. Just sayin.

I thought Buffy was supposed to be a blonde. Wasn't Joss idea of Buffy a small blonde girl who kicks ass?

I agree. Redheads are awesome. :)

Of course, so are blondes and brunettes. I should probably cover my bets and add in those streaks I've been contemplating...
I have Rosenbergs in my family tree and at least one of them had red hair.
I know Buffy was suposed to be a blonde since the beginning and I love her the way she is, but I always thought Gellar's more beautiful as a brunette.
Buffy was always blonde but remember in the first season she was a darker blond, closer to brunette.
Sarah was still brunette in the Unaired Pilot, but I think the blonde represnets her real inner self. Same with Aly's; she has a redhead's soul, like I said in my filk. And I always thought Charisma was more true black than dark brown; surprise me!
