Red Hair Trend

There is a LOT of celebrities going RED this summer - what is behind this bold trend?  Perhaps its that less than 2% of the human population are true red heads (and many of them are in Ireland!) and the desire for celebrities to consistently stay unique and memorable causes them to switch colors?!

One of the most shocking is Blake Lively, known for her signature California girl blond locks!

Perhaps the celebrity that is giving red hair the popularity boost it needed to catch on, is Rihanna, who has made bold and dark red work for her this entire Spring!!!

Red hair also came onto the scene when the lovely Christina Hendrick's showed us her bombshell 50's attitude on the hit show "Mad Men"

Some before and after red-hair changes!

Some more 'natural' red heads have always been sporting the red locks, but now more than ever they are experimenting with bolder hues!

I don't know what it is, but this trend is picking up speed!  If you are thinking of taking up a red hue, keep in mind the following tips:

1. Red color needs constant touch ups, usually with a color rinse (which is semi-permanent)
2. You will need to use a special red-haired care shampoo (such as ShiKai's Henna Red Headed Shampoo)
3.  You will not be able to wash your hair as often (because the color will fade so quickly) so if you have a very oily scalp, red hair is not for you.

What do you think?  Will YOU be going red?!


  1. I think I would look ok with an auburn hue but I don't have the guts or the face to go bold with red!
