Hair: Multi-dimensional Redhead Shades

Is anyone else a bit fed up of being called ginger, no matter what shade of red you actually are? Whether it’s warm mahogany or strawberry blonde, it’s always the same: “You’re ginger”. I mean, use your vocabulary people! Hell, even whack out a thesaurus if you need to.

Okay, I’m ranting a bit, so I’ll stop that now, as there is good news!

This week, Stylist Magazine wrote that popular hair shades have come to be able to convey emotions through multi-dimensional colour.

Sound a bit sci-fi? Well, think Lana Del Rey – we been battling for some time, trying to pin a colour on her tresses – is she a redhead or a brunette? The point is that she’s not either; she’s simply sending a message through her hair and personality: Romance. Get it?

It’s a bit of an odd concept to grasp, we know. But here’s the best part for us: This new trend is the epitome of naturally ginger hair. The ability to use multiple dimensions to reflect your character.

I don’t know about you, but I find that my hair colour changes on a daily basis. Or rather, whenever I step into different lighting. It’s got nothing to do with dye, it’s simply down to the multi-dimensional nature of red hair. I like it; it’s multi-tasking. Also, having red hair is an intrepid part of who I am, I enjoy that it’s noticeable and I allow it to boost my confidence as an individual.

And with it being completely different from any other boring shade, our red manes boast a mixture of flecks of gold, copper, chestnut, auburn, hazel, honey, chocolate, mahogany; I could go on. I mean, anyone should be jealous of that.

And I never get bored or feel the need to change my shade as it changes itself! Clever genetics.

So perhaps there are some new nicknames for us on the horizon: ‘Auburn’ or ‘Rusty’? Hey, it could happen!

So the important question is to ask yourself: What message is your hair sending? Because with 44% of people admitting that hair is the first thing they notice about a person, it’s a pretty big deal.

Make sure your mane speaks volumes.
