For the past six months, How to be a Redhead has traveled throughout the USA for the 5-city Rock it like a Redhead Beauty Tour . The crimson-focused event series made stops in Austin, Nashville, Seattle, Chicago and is wrapping it all up in New York City on November 5, 2015.

Along the way, we’ve received many questions asking what the event is all about, what to wear and what to expect. Thanks to the incredible sketch from Yarden Karako, we were able to bring the event to life before many of you experience it first hand.
It is all happening at Gibney Dance Agnes Varies Center for Performing Arts, Studio C in TriBeca, downtown New York City.
So, pretend like you’re dressed up and ready to walk into the venue. Ready, set, go…
