    S3, Ep13: Summer Hair Tips for Redheads with Oribe’s Global Educator, Adam Livermore

    Do you have frizzy red hair? Does your red hair sometimes fade in the summer sun? Did you receive the Oribe Power Drops Color Preservation Booster in your Winter Deluxe H2BAR Box and want tips on how to use it? If you said "yes" to any of these questions, this podcast episode is for you!
    Today's guest is Adam Livermore. He is Oribe’s Global Educator and resides in NYC. He works at Muze Salon and also works freelance on editorial, celebrities, fashion etc. At Oribe, he teaches hairstylists cutting, styling, and product knowledge, and works closely with new product development on testing and developing new products. Celeb clients: Cher, Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Meg Ryan, Naomi Campbell. He is also a hybrid model redhead myself. He has a red beard and blond-ish hair. He said, “Red hair is special, I love it.”
    Here are some of the questions we ask him:
    1. We have to ask! Did you grow up with red hair? You have a red beard!
    2. As Oribe’s Global Educator, we know you must love so many Oribe products. We actually featured Oribe’s Gold Lust Power Drops Damage Hair Repair Booster in our Winter Deluxe H2BAR Box (www.h2barbox.com). Who is a good candidate for this product? What are the best tips for use?
    3. Let’s talk roots! We see Oribe has an Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray for Red. Do you recommend this product for natural redheads who now dye their hair to make it more vibrant AND redheads-by-choice who dye it?
    4. Let’s talk about fading red hair amongst natural redheads. Our audience asks about this more than anything else. What are your top tips to keep red hair vibrant?
    5. Frizz! What is your top tip for eliminating frizz this summer?

    S3, Ep12: Why Redheads Feel Less Pain with Guest Dr. David E. Fisher MD, PhD.

    S3, Ep12: Why Redheads Feel Less Pain with Guest Dr. David E. Fisher MD, PhD.

    There is so much misinformation on the web! Do redheads feel more pain or less pain? The answer is: redheads feel less pain and the reason why is fascinating. The brilliant Dr. David E. Fisher MD, PhD. is our special guest for this episode.
    Dr. Fisher is an internationally known researcher, clinician and academic, who is Chief of the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts (USA). He also serves as Director of the MGH Cutaneous (Q-taneous) Biology Research Center and Director of the Melanoma Center at MGH. A Professor of Dermatology and of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Fisher came to the MGH from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, where he previously Directed the Melanoma Program.
    Dr. Fisher's research has focused on understanding the molecular and genetic events which underlie formation of melanoma as well as skin pigmentation. As a clinician, he has worked to translate these understandings into advances in diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human diseases related to the skin and associated disorders. A graduate of Swarthmore College with a degree in Biology and Chemistry, Dr. Fisher is also an accomplished concert cellist and received a degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. He received his PhD under Nobel Laureate Gunter Blobel at Rockefeller University and his Medical Degree at Cornell University Medical College under Dr. Henry Kunkel.
    Dr. Fisher's specialty training in Medicine, Pediatrics, and Oncology were carried out at Harvard Medical School. He recently served for three years as President of the Society for Melanoma Research, the largest international society dedicated to the study of melanoma.
    New research led by investigators Dr. Fisher at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) provides insights on why people with red hair exhibit altered sensitivity to certain kinds of pain.
    He will answer the following questions:
    1. There has been confusion amongst social media. We want to get to the bottom of it. In very simple terms, can you break down what you do, what you focus on and the new research that you came out with surrounding the MC1R gene? We want to know if redheads feel more or less pain!
    2. Redhead mice have the MC1R gene -- is that true?
    3. What should redheads in general take away from this study? Will pain management be different or should be different?
    4. How about the MC1R gene in conjunction with melanoma?

    S3, Ep11: Redhead Makeup with Natalie Cosco, Jane Levy's Makeup Artist

    S3, Ep11: Redhead Makeup with Natalie Cosco, Jane Levy's Makeup Artist

    We're big fans of NBC's "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist". The main character/redhead is Zoey Clarke (played by actress Jane Levy). The show is centered around the ability Zoey has to hear people's thoughts in song. Her redhead character is stubborn, determined, and loving. She's also gorgeous and her makeup is always on-point!
    On and off stage, Natalie Cosco is the woman behind Jane Levy's redhead makeup looks. Natalie is an accomplished makeup artist in both film, print and TV. Her career spans 30 years of achievements including iconic productions as: "Smallville", "Fear the Walking Dead" - Season 1, "The Mountain Between Us", "The Edge of Seventeen", "30 Days of Night (Dark Days)", "The Man in The High Castle" and "The Art of Racing in The Rain."
    We are so excited to ask Natalie the following questions and for you to hear her answers/tricks/techniques:
    1. Let’s talk about redhead makeup! Besides your current work on "Zoeys Extraordinary Playlist", we know you worked on so many films and TV shows throughout your career. What do you love about working on a redhead? Are there any special products, shades etc. that you use when working on a redhead?
    2. We LOVED the look you did on Jane Levy at the Golden Globes this year. For those who didn’t see it (and we’ll post it on HowtobeaRedhead.com), Jane Levy was wearing a navy blue dress. She had on a colorful lip, a smokey eye and great brows. We’ll break down those choices in a minute. But, the difference with this look is that the 2021 Golden Globes was virtual! Did the virtual nature of the show play a part in Jane’s makeup look? Should you do your makeup differently when on Zoom? If so, how?
    3. Her smokey cat eye was gorgeous! What products do you recommend for achieving this look?
    4. How about her lip color? We love a pink shade for the spring and summer months ahead and know a lot of redheads may be afraid to rock a bold lip with their red hair already making a statement.
    5. As a makeup artist, what is your go-to makeup product?
    6. What is your favorite concealer and how should you prep your under eye area before applying this product? And, how do you deal with creases in the concealer?

    S3, Ep10: Kicking Off Melanoma Awareness Month with Guest, Evelynn Moz from VERTRA Premium Suncare

    S3, Ep10: Kicking Off Melanoma Awareness Month with Guest, Evelynn Moz from VERTRA Premium Suncare

    Redheads are prone to melanoma more than any other hair color. Sunscreen knowledge is so essential and if you've listened to our podcast (or read HowtobeaRedhead.com for the last decade), you know we're passionate about skincare for redheads. The month of May is the beginning of Melanoma Awareness Month and we're kicking it off with a very special Saturday episode!
    Our guest is Evelynn Moz from VERTRA Premium Suncare. She is the Product Line Manager and passionate about sunscreen.
    It's scary because a recent study found that many of the American sunscreen products labeled as “broad spectrum” block UVB rays but don’t block UVA rays. UVA penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB. Vertra is committed to creating a premium sunscreen line that is infused with non-nano, mineral UVA/UVB blockers that meet the maximum 80-minute FDA water and sweat resistance ratings. They’re also paraben-free and great for redhead skin.
    *Hint, Hint*: The May H2BAR Box ships today and VERTRA is one of the sunscreen brands inside! Subscribe: www.h2barbox.com
    For over a decade now Vertra has provided the ocean’s best athletes with superior UV protection with a patented processes. Vertra is now considered the ultimate skincare for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.
    We talk with Evelynn about her work with Dior, Chanel, Estee Lauder, Kate Somerville and now VERTRA. As an athlete herself, she was a competitive soccer player in her teens and even played in two world cup tournaments in Europe, so she knows how bad sunburns can be.
    We discuss about the following:
    1. Let’s talk about VERTRA! Tell us a bit about the brand? Why was it created?
    2. Although the brand has roots in the professional surf industry, the products that Vertra makes can be used not only for any sport, but also for daily wear.  Vertra is so beneficial for young athletes, so that they are better protected and more knowledgeable than the generations that came before us. We heard you were a competitive soccer player in your teens and even played in two world cup tournaments in Europe!
    3. We’re so excited to have your Pearl White Sticks 50+ a part of our May H2BAR Box. It’s an amazing product. Why is this product so unique?
    4. Why is reef-safe important?
    5. Not a lot of consumers know the difference between all the ingredients in sunscreen. Why is Octinoxate & Oxybenzone harmful?
    6. We know the VERTRA products are 80 minute water-resistant. What does that exactly mean?
    7. What are some tips for after-sun care?

    S3, Ep9: Finally Have Brows® - Why It Was Created & We Talk About The Reaction After Release

    S3, Ep9: Finally Have Brows® - Why It Was Created & We Talk About The Reaction After Release

    On February 5th, we launched Finally Have Brows®! Over the past few years, we have been working behind the scenes to develop an eyebrow gel for redheads. We had a hard task at hand. We wanted all redheads to be able to use the same shade, we needed it to be paraben-free/cruelty-free/vegan, made in the USA, sleek packaging, custom brush for coarse brow hair (a trait amongst most redheads).. and so much more. We talk about how we developed Finally Have Brows®, the reaction when it dropped on February 5, 2021 and the reaction of redheads everywhere after the release!
    Shop + read the rave reviews: https://shop.howtobearedhead.com/products/finally-have-brows-tinted-redhead-eyebrow-gel
    Exclusive in the podcast notes, we wanted to showcase some of our favorite reviews:

    * This eyebrow gel is AH-MAZING!!! I am in love with the natural effect and how very little product I need to use. Please don’t ever stop making it. I am a natural redhead with (used to be) darker brows, that have faded as I’ve aged. The tint of this brow gel is the only thing that’s ever looked even close to natural for me. And the order I placed today is for my niece who has the blonde-barely-there brows and it looks amazing on her too (bc of course we tried mine on her first!) Thank you so much for catering to the needs of a a desperately underserved group of peeps - all of us gingers! - Audie K.
    * I love this product so much that I bought a second one so I have a back up in case I can't get this again anytime soon. -Amy M.
    * I absolutely love it! I’ve never tried any brow products that was so easily matched to my red hair. I love it and I recommend it to any redhead or anyone who wants natural looking red hair eye brows.
