RISE OF THE REDHEAD

55ebb94885c7384e968c9cd55824b4cd

The carpet wasn’t the only red I saw at last night’s Golden Globes. It seems this year there’s an abundance of redheaded leading ladies currently making a major mark on Hollywood: Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain, and Julianne Moore, to name just a few. (Side note: all three of those ladies looked absolutely stunning last night. Don’t you agree? Emma Stone killed it in that jumpsuit.) Maybe it’s the whole you-want-what-you-can’t-have theory in play here, but I am absolutely so taken with red hair. I realize it’s something I could never pull off which is probably why I’m so fascinated with it. I think my love for the color started when I was six after I first saw Ann Margaret in Bye Bye Birdie (I was Ann-Margaret obsessed after that). I still hold a candle for AM, but my other redhead icons now include Taylor Tomasi Hill, Julianne Moore, and Christina Hendricks. It is a tough color to pull off and very few can do it, in my opinion. (I believe this was evidenced by Blake Lively. She had a red moment but I think we’re all happy she went back to blonde.) What always surprises me is how redheads can pull of almost any color. If you need proof, just take a look at Julianne Moore here and here. She’s donned nearly every color under the sun and they all look amazing on her. Or how about Emma Stone in that amazing pink Thakoon look? (This rule seems to be true when it comes to beauty, too. I love the look of a hot pink lip on a redhead.) From copper to crimson, there’s just something so magnetic (almost seductive?) about a red hair. Here, a few of my favorites. What are your thoughts on the color? Yay or nay?
