IT has been a long wait for redheads but they have been celebrating the news ginger emojis are finally here. 

It has been reported the new additions could be with smartphone users over the coming weeks after Unicode's Emjoi 11.0 update was released yesterday, Tuesday.

Following the launch, devices will start rolling out their redhead emojis with Twitter, Apple and Android expected to follow suit.

The news comes after a petition gathered 21,795 signatures from frustrated redheads across the country.

But it's not the only new addition. 

The latest batch of new emojis also includes people with curly hair, white hair and no hair. 

Other emojis, which appear to have got social media users very excited, include a kangaroo, a lobster, a party face and a supervillain.
