Official: Redheads Have More Fun
I first coloured my hair when I was 13 years old, because I desperately wanted to be a redhead. Since then my hair has been every shade of red imaginable…
Coloured red hair requires a lot of upkeep as it fades very quickly. During my ‘tangerine’ phase I was colouring my hair every two weeks. I’d go dark for a couple months in order to take a break from colouring, but invariably I end up back red.
After my ‘pillarbox’ phase 6 years ago I decided that was the end of red for me. Surely, I had more important things to focus on other than my hair, right? So… I entered the Dark Ages… and after 6 years I’ll tell you what I learned: it’s pretty damned boring as a brunette.
So, once again I’ve gone red…
I’ve completely forgotten how much attention one gets as a redhead- people are telling me how young I look, even people I’ve only just met and men are chatting me up, so much so that even my son has noticed. It’s bizarre that a hair colour can have that much effect. It’s made me decide to stay red though. Fuck that ‘intelligent brunette’ look, I’m a ‘scarlet woman’ again and proud.
