All American Redheads video from 1940s (courtesy of Ralph Hilburn). The All American Redheads was started by C.M. "Ole" Olsen in Cassville, Mo in 1936.The story goes that Olsen's wife, Dayle, owned five beauty shops around Missouri and Arkansas and had some girls working for her that played basketball. Two of these girls were red heads. As a joke the entire team colored their hair red with henna. It was the gimmick that the women needed to be known and then with a foot on the court they wowed crowds with their talent. The most phenomenal part of the amount of games these women won was that they only played men's teams.
