Redheads throughout history have often been portrayed as fiery and seductive; from Queen Elizabeth I to Cleopatra (who some argue was a redhead). Sexy red hair is something Hollywood has loved from its early days. Think of Clara Bow the red
headed “It Girl” or Lucille Ball and Maureen O’Hara with their playful confident personalities. And who can forget Rita Hayworth’s bombshell sexuality. Today’s dazzling redheads; Lindsay Lohan, Debra Messing, Susan Sarandon, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman continue to light up the silver screen with their ravishing red locks.


The start of a new year marks the opportunity for redefining your style and what
better way then with a new hair color. For years the hair fashion industry has been obsessed with blondes. Make no mistake, blond hair isn't going out of style but
with the start of the new decade it's time for the blond to make way for the redhead.
The redhead isn't just a hair color it's an attitude. If it were a formula I’d mix two
parts red hair, one part personality, plus two parts sexual confidence. It’s said that Blondes have more fun, but Redheads are never forgotten. Bette Midler (singer-
actress) may have said it best, "Gentlemen may prefer blonds, but it takes a
real man to tame a redhead."

Red hair comes in many shades from cool to warm and is most flattering to creamy complexions although it also works well with complexions of medium warm tones. Women with pale porcelain skin and green or blue eyes should go for natural gingers and neutral-tone coppers. Dark and olive skin tones should stick with the Burgundies and violet-based colors to flatter skin tones. Brunettes should favor the darker shades
of red to match their complexion and natural hair color. Medium brown and light blonde
can wear either dark or lighter shades of reds. Adding red highlights or lowlights with
a foil weaving technique can achieve a natural or dramatic look. This dimensional
look is eye-catching and far from ordinary for those who like to get noticed. If you
chose to become a redhead lightening the brows will give it a natural look.


Because red hair dye contains the smallest of hair color molecules keeping red in
your hair becomes a challenge. Small molecules enter the hair shaft easily but also wash out of the hair easily each time you shampoo. To preserve the color using a pigmented shampoo and conditioner between touch ups will help prevent premature fading. Because there are dozens of ravishing red hues from strawberry and auburn
to coppers it can be difficult to know which shade is right for you. To determine what shade would suit you best and which to avoid a visit to a professional hair colorist
is well worth the time and expense. Before you make an appointment clip a few
pictures from magazines with colors you’re interested in trying and show them to
the colorist….a picture is worth a thousand words!
