    S2, Ep18: Embracing Curly Red Hair with Co-Founder of NaturallyCurly.com, Michelle Breyer

    S2, Ep18: Embracing Curly Red Hair with Co-Founder of NaturallyCurly.com, Michelle Breyer

    We, Adrienne and Stephanie, have curly red hair and discovered that embracing our curls was a challenging journey -- a similar feeling when learning to love our unique hair color. Before we launched HowtobeaRedhead.com, we were fans (and still are!) of NaturallyCurly.com, a website for curly hair.
    That's why we're excited to talk to co-founder of NaturallyCurly.com, Michelle Breyer. She helped create the leading community and resource for people with curly hair. Frustrated by the lack of information on curly hair and the limited products available in the marketplace, her and her business partner, Gretchen Heber, launched the site in 1998.
    Michelle answers the following questions:
    1. Let’s talk about your hair journey! What was it like growing up with curly hair?
    2. What have you learned from your journey in building NaturallyCurly?
    3. If you could give a redhead with curly hair ONE tip (and one tip only) for the perfect curls, what would it be?
    4. What is your current hair regimen?
    5. What is your top tip for eliminating frizz?
    6. What hair products can you not live without?
    7. What advice do you have for those redheads listening who have yet to embrace their curls, or maybe just getting started?

    S2, Ep17: Microblading 101 for Redheads with Guest, Katie Ellis

    S2, Ep17: Microblading 101 for Redheads with Guest, Katie Ellis

    Microblading inserts semi-permanent pigment into the upper layers of skin to create the desired fullness and shape of the eyebrows. The effects last up to 12 months after which the pigment fades leaving the skin and your natural brows exactly as they were.
    The technique is very on-trend right now. But microblading can be difficult for redheads because redheads typically have lighter and coarser brows, and sometimes a semi-permanent color can be way too harsh. BUT, microblading can be done! A redhead needs to find the right professional who has worked on redheads before.
    Thanks to social media, we came across today's guest, Katie Ellis, on Instagram. One of Ellis' red-haired clients broke down in tears after seeing her new microbladed redhead brows.
    Ellis is from Fresno, California. She is a registered nurse turned beauty business entrepreneur. She realized after six long years in college and two years of nursing, her true passion is to help women feel beautiful through microblading. Giving her clients confidence through microblading makes her heart soar and leaves her fulfilled every day.
    She answers the following questions:
    1. Who is the best candidate for microblading?
    2. Walk us through the process! Post, during and pre-microblading?
    3. A redhead sits down to get their brows microbladed. How do you decide on the color of the brows? We’ve read that sometimes the color can change. Have you seen this?
    4. Does it hurt? Should a redhead with sensitive skin be concerned about irritation?
    5. How many times do they see you: When you get it done, do you have to go back once it heals? How long does it last? How often do you need to get it done?

    S2, Ep16: Super Interesting History of Red Hair with Guest, Jacky Colliss Harvey

    S2, Ep16: Super Interesting History of Red Hair with Guest, Jacky Colliss Harvey

    The truth is: redheads are super cool, but we already knew that right?! To help understand just how cool we are, you should learn a little more about the history of red hair. That's why we're so excited to talk with Jacky Colliss Harvey.
    Jacky is the author of "Red: A History of the Redhead" and "My Life As A Redhead: A Journal". She studied English at Cambridge University and art history at the Courtauld Institute. She works in museum publishing and is a commentator and reviewer who speaks on the arts and their relation to popular culture. Her red hair has also found her an alternative career as a life model and a film extra playing everything from a society lady in Atonement to a Parisian whore in Bel-Ami. She splits her time between New York and London.
    We answers the following super interesting questions:
    1. "Red: A History of the Redhead" tells the history of red hair throughout the ages. It traces back 50,000 years and dives into science, religion, feminism and sexuality, literature, and art. The book begins with how the redhead gene made its way out of Africa with the early human diaspora, to its emergence under Northern skies. Fascinating! Tell us a bit more about the book & the fascinating things about redheads!
    2. What was the biggest thing you learned about redheads while writing this book? Anything that surprised you?
    3. The book dives into contemporary culture when it comes to “gingerism” and the movement against bullying. Do you think we’re moving in the right direction when it comes to anti-bullying against redheads?
    4. Do you think redheads are portrayed positively in culture? Is there a difference between redhead men and redhead women being portrayed? If so, why do you think this happens?
    5. In the book, you call your red hair, “The single most significant characteristic of your life.” Have you always identified with being a redhead?

    S2, Ep15: Microneedling 101 for Redheads with Guest Tori Burns, MPAS, PA-C

    S2, Ep15: Microneedling 101 for Redheads with Guest Tori Burns, MPAS, PA-C

    Microneedling is a procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury in order to rejuvenate the skin. It is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. Microneedling, in some form, has been practiced for more than 20 years.
    It’s also called skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI).
    Can redheads get this procedure?
    We talk with Tori Burns, Physician Assistant-Certified at The Center for Aesthetic and Laser Medicine in Tyler, TX. She gives redheads the 101 on microneedling.

S2, E11 Sunless tanning

I never thought I would be able to try spray tanning because I am a Redhead. This podcast gave me the knowledge and confidence to give it a try. I use the sunless tanning lotions and I also received tips on applying that better. Thanks H2BAR! Rock It Like a Redhead!

Amazing

I absolutely LOVE this podcast. Before I was subscribed to the H2BAR box, this podcast gave me so much advice! Now I like to pair the podcasts with the products in the boxes! I think my favorite episode was about redhead fashion. I loved hearing the guest talk about how passionate she was about wearing different colors. Even if others say that’s not a “redhead” color!
