HowtobeaRedhead.com launched 11 years ago! If you’ve followed us for more than a decade, you know it all started with a small blog, which turned into a website, and now a brand. The past year has been our fastest growing year ever and we have had so many fantastic moments since 2011.
Thank you for your ongoing love and support! Let’s take a look down memory lane.
The top 11 moments since our launch in 2011:
1. The release of Finally Have Brows®
We had to make this #1 because we worked 10 years to create this product — and it has been loved by customers! Shortly after release, it went viral on TikTok with over 5.3 million views.
Finally Have Brows® is a tinted eyebrow gel that tints, locks and tames redhead eyebrows in a few swipes.
It was created by us, Adrienne and Stephanie, natural redheads and co-founder’s of How to be a Redhead! For the past 10 years, we have listened to what our audience needs and so excited to release Finally Have Brows®.

2. The monthly H2BAR Box
When we first launched HowtobeaRedhead.com, we spoke about sending “red beauty boxes” to redheads everywhere. But, subscription boxes were just starting to launch. After the 2015 5-city Rock it like a Redhead beauty tour, redheads started asking us to ship swag bags to them because they couldn’t attend an event. A light bulb went off in our heads + that’s when we knew we had to start a subscription box for redheads. So, it was launched at the Seattle 2015 Rock it like a Redhead event and it has been sold out (and growing) ever since.
3. The “How to be a Redhead” Book
The release of the world’s 1st-ever beauty book for redheads, on April 12, 2016, was a beautiful day! Redheads are now represented in beauty sections at book stores. Get your copy here.
4. The 2015 Rock it like a Redhead Beauty Tour & The “How to be a Redhead” 2016 book tour
We traveled to 18 cities in 24 months from 2015-2016 to meet H2BAR’s followers. It was awesome to meet everyone and see their excitement!
5. The 1st-7th Annual Love Your Red Hair Day
November 5th is National Love Your Red Hair Day! Each year it has trended on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook! It was created by H2BAR to remind redheads everywhere to love and appreciate their hair.
6. Deluxe H2BAR Box
In 2019, we launched the Deluxe version of the H2BAR Box! A quarterly (4X a year) beauty box for redheads! The value is $250 per box. We are loving your 5 star reviews!
7. The How to be a Redhead E-commerce Store
When we launched the H2BAR Box, so many redheads wanted to purchase the monthly products through H2BAR. And, website readers wanted to directly shop for ‘Redhead Friendly’ beauty products on HowtobeaRedhead.com. So, we launched the H2BAR e-commerce store in 2019! You can now shop for beauty products right on HowtobeaRedhead.com.
8. The New York Times + Other Press
On Thanksgiving Day in 2014, the New York Times wrote a page long article about How to be a Redhead — and our top redhead eyebrow picks. It launched the start of every highlight we mentioned above. We are so thankful to the many editors who have written about H2BAR!
9. This website
We have had 15+ designs and so excited to continuously change it! Stay tuned for another design in early 2022!
10. H2BAR Podcast
In 2018, we launched the How to be a Redhead podcast! Listen on Apple iTunes, Spotify and anywhere you listen to podcasts.
We’re currently working on Season 4 and Season 5. Listen to one of our favorite episodes below:
