Redheads in Ancient Greek Art

The following images I noticed on an episode of the BBC4 series Treasures of Ancient Greece. They were on an item of pottery and show two people with dark copper red hair. Whether the intention was to depict redheads or the red colouring just a consequence of the pigments used I'm not sure, but they look fairly gingery to me :p
