If you’re an avid reader of How to be a Redhead articles or follow along on social media, you probably know quite a bit about the brand, its founders, and what it stands for. How to be a Redhead has been building an online community for over 10 years, but there are a few fun facts you might not know about the brand.
1. Adrienne & Stephanie Are the Founders and They Are Sisters, Not Twins
Adrienne and Stephanie Vendetti are the co-founders of How to be a Redhead. The two are also sisters! And no they aren’t twins, like everyone thinks. The two sisters are natural redheads who struggled to find beauty and fashion advice that catered to redheads.
2. The Brand Was Started in 2011 in Boston
Because of the struggle Adrienne and Stephanie faced, they had to learn the hard way through trial and error. Eventually, after mastering all the redhead tips and tricks, they knew they had to do something to help other redheads. How to be a Redhead was born in 2011 and hasn’t stopped growing since.
3. How to be a Redhead Created National Love Your Red Hair Day
Adrienne and Stephanie took note of the ever-hateful “Kick a Ginger Day” and decided to combat that with a day that spread a positive message instead. November 5th was officially designated National Love Your Red Hair Day, and the 1st annual Love Your Red Hair Day was celebrated on the final Rock It Like a Redhead Beauty Tour stop in 2015.
4. How to be a Redhead is a Certified Woman-owned Business by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council
There are over 13 million women-owned businesses in the United States, making up around 42% of all businesses. The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is “helping bridge that gap — through access to opportunities, programs that accelerate growth, and campaigns to influence consumer buying behaviors.”
5. All How to be a Redhead Products are Clean and Safe for Sensitive Skin
Since the founding of How to be a Redhead 12+ years ago, the brand has become more than just an online community. With 7 unique products and more on the way, H2BAR is crafting products for redheads, by redheads. And since redheads have such sensitive skin, those products are always sensitive skin-safe, cruelty-free, vegan, and paraben-free among other things!
Rock it like a Redhead!
