Gingers

Ginger Of The Week: Rachel

Rachel is our #GingerOfTheWeek this week! Rachel is one proud ginger and here is a little bit about why: “Before my grandma died, we were the only red heads in our family. Having red hair is unique, and it reminds me of her. She always used to tell me, when I was younger, how special I am to have red hair, so in honor of my her, I’m embracing it more than ever.”

The Perfect Dresses for Redheads

It’s that time of year again with lots of holiday cheer which also includes holiday parties and New Years Eve festivities, work, family, friends, lots of reasons to get dressed up! Blondes and Brunettes generally don’t have to be as selective with their choice in holiday attire and cocktail dress colors because they generally always match their hair! Redheads on the other hand have to coordinate with their beautiful red loches AND it doesn’t help that all the models online showing off the dresses never have red hair! So here are the best colors to look for in a holiday or evening dress whether its for a work party, family holiday gathering or New Years Eve!

Gold
 Navy or Dark Blue

Black
 Emerald Green

It’s 3 full days chucked full with ginger madness including games, music, and drinks! This event has gingers of all age ranges so bring all your family and friends to this one!

2. Rock It Like a Redhead Fashion Show in New York City and new as of 2014 will also be in Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, and Atlanta! Rock It Like a Redhead event started as as online resource, How To Be A Redhead, for all things Fashion for Redheads and as of last year went live in New York City on March 16, 2013. It was the world’s first-ever beauty and fashion event for redheads. Attendees browsed and received beauty treatments specifically for redheads from vendors Pureology, Whip Hand Cosmetics, Incoco, Susan Ciminelli and Prescriptives.

The last two years they have received the Guinness Book of World Records Largest Gathering of People with Red Hair.

4. Redhead Event – Less of an event and more of just a gathering (in competition with the Redhead Days Event) to continuously keep breaking the previous year Guinness World Record for having the most natural redheads in one place at a time. This giant Redheaded gathering takes place in the summer in Portland, Oregon and all donations benefit the Skin Cancer Foundation. To qualify and participate in The Redhead Event, registrants are required to bring a color copy of themselves as a young person showing their naturally red hair. Individual pictures of all participants will be taken on the day of the event.

5. Redhead Day UK - This day is dedicated to all the redheads with lots of famous redheads making an appearance. Redhead Day is held in Manchester, England every year. Past years they have had motivational speakers, comedians, magicians, and musicians, all of which are redheads! This event is put on and powered by Everything For Redheads which is a community for redheads that provide product info and insight on such things as makeup for redheads, makeup for pale skin & redhead haircare.
