Penirroja is Redhead, So it would be like say "She is a redhead" as opposed to "She has red hair"

In the Spanish version of Anne of Green Gables, they call her hair pelirrojo, and it couldn't get much redder.

pelirroja more or less pertains to the strawberry blonde color rather than red, so like a natural red-head, not someone who dyed they're hair red. as cabello rojo does.

I wouldn't say "tiene el cabello rojo", although it would be understood. "Pelirroja" is the common way to say it.

I have always heard the former, but I suppose the latter would also be acceptable.

Pelirrojo comes from pelo+rojo.
