Close but no prize. redheads ARE able to get a tan but it is very rare. The gene for red hair, which is a MC1R variant is located close to the gene for skin color. Most redheads cannot get a tan because in freckled redheads, the melanin is contained only in the freckles, not spread out uniformly as is the case for most people. Therefore, the freckles can tan (i.e. get darker) but there is usually no melanin in between the freckles. In rare cases, there are redheads with very little freckling and olive or darker skin. This is usually seen in non Celtic, Semitic (as in Jews, mostly Ashkenazi, as well as Arabs) or Iranian descent. There is a very, very tiny amount of these darker skinned redheads in Asian populations.
