Tricks and Trends: Red Hair

I think this particular hair trend deserves our attention! Every time I’m asked, “Lana would you change your hair color”, I always reply “As soon as I get white hair, I’m turning my hair red!”. For the past years, most of the fashion industry has literally been obsessed with blondes. This trend isn’t going anywhere as the golden and platine blonde is still on. However, with all the latest fashion weeks for next spring/summer, it appears that it’s time for the blonde bombshell to make way.

About Red Hair:

Genetically, it occurs on only around 1 to 25 of the all the human population thanks to two copies of a recessive gene on chromosome 16 which causes a mutation in a certain protein. Most often, we find red hair in the nothern and western European populations and less in others. When we say red hair, it goes from burnt orange to bright copper.

Queen Elizabeth I of England was a ‘redhead’ and during her era, red hair was fashionable for women. In our modern times, red hair became subject to fashion trends with celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Christina Hendricks, Julianne Moore and Marcia Cross.

What’s happening now:

With 2011/2012 trends, red hair became definitely one of the hottest hair trends! I am totally loving red hair on models in most of the new look books and on the stars gradually going redhead. I’m not telling you all to buy red hair dye but I just find it as an amazing look to blog about. And for those who are thinking of doing it, well you definitely should! However, pay attention because to each skin tone and eyes’ color, its own red shade.

Latest News you should know about:

Last week, the international Sperm bank simply announced to potential donnors that there’s simply not much demand from red-headed men. I don’t really know what to think about the Sperm bank literally “turning down” redheads but as I am a lover of diversity, I strongly believe this is something that shouldn’t have happened. The worse thing ever is to block donnors, no matter what. Redheads maybe constitute 1% of the population out there but it’s time to really believe that only differences can make our world move forward.

Fashionably yours,
