TODAY IS LOVE YOUR RED HAIR DAY
It is the symbol of a fiery personality that is ruled by its passions, a strong-headed person who knows what they want and how to get it. They say the fire inside matches the fire of the hair, and to many red hair is the very definition of what it means to be Irish. Rumors have abounded throughout history to describe and define the redhead, but if you are one, Love Your Red Hair Day is the time to revel in your utter gingerness, and truly love your red hair.
How to celebrate Love Your Red Hair Day
Red hair does have some peculiarities to it, though it comes in as many types and styles as any other color. But to truly take advantage of the incredible, and sometimes persnickety color you are best supported by your hair dresser. Go out and take special care of your red hair on Love Your Red Hair Day, pick up an outfit that truly augments it and let your hairdresser do amazing things with it. Then go gather with other red heads and set the world on fire!
