Red Heads

When I was in high school I used to dye mi hair red for a while. It was a very dark shade though, cause my hair is a natural true black and it's oh so difficult to really change the color... I would have loved to be a true ginger head, but all my attempts have always failed!

By the way, my love for this hair color is still alive, so when during my lil shopping trip I finally purchased the latest issue of Lula, I almost screamed in joy.


Of course, with Karen Elson as cover girl you can imagine the whole issue is a love song for redhead girls...


Oh joy, it seems ginger hair are the new black, the next big thing, the coolest in the universe at the moment (along with polka dots black sheer tights, but that's another story).






And look at what's happening on the streets...


(Polka dots tights, btw!!)



Ok, my hair is black in this life, but who knows, maybe in a next one...

I capelli rossi... mi piace la tonalità del rosso di queste foto, molto dolce, probabilmente difficile da ottenere. Io con la mia pelle scura, ho preferito non provare mai, ma mia sorella (bionda e chiara) è stata rossa per un paio di anni. Tutti credevano che era il suo colore naturale!

I tried to rock a dark red look in middle school/high school. I thought it looked good on me because I was fair but it was hard to maintain the color.

Don't know if I've commented before, but great blog!
Great pictures! I've always longed to have been born with red hair too, but instead got brown. And unfortunately I'm not quite fair enough to pull off dyed red hair either, oh well ;)

I'm as obsessed with redheads as you are. So maybe in another life, absolutely right.

i've been keeping my hair red for awhile now and really can't imagine having it any other color.

karen elson lives where i live and has a seriously amazing vintage store, venus and mars.

Red is my very favourite of hair hues, too! Wonderful shots, honey, thank you for sharing these fashion pages with us. I've never bought Lula before, but I sincerely want to now! :)


Wishing you a beautiful weekend, sweet dear!

Oh my goodness I was thinking about this yesterday too! (I also dyed my hair red in high school and like you have black hair...so it wasn't exactly the ravishing red I was going for) The recent season of America's Next Top Model (petite edition) has one model named Nicole who is so absolutely beautiful with long curly red hair. I'm jealous. *hehe*
