We had the opportunity to speak with Rebekah about her favorite hair tips for women with red hair:
H2BAR: What hair care advice do you have for natural redheads?
RF: Natural redheads tend to have dry hair, so use plenty of conditioner and go light on the heat styling.
H2BAR: What hair care advice do you have for those who are redheads ‘by choice’?
RF: Love a redhead! Keep the shine with a glaze or a color depositing shampoo/conditioner.

H2BAR: We know you’ve worked on one of our favorite redheads, Cynthia Nixon [famous for her role on Sex and the City], many times. What is her favorite hairstyle?
RF: Cynthia is naturally a blonde but she is very into the shorter hair trend right now
H2BAR: Sarah Ferguson is a timeless redhead. What are your favorite ways to style her locks?
RF: She likes to look natural and not stiff so different size barrel irons are good to create a natural texture.
H2BAR: All redheads, natural and by choice, want to know how they can keep their hair vibrant all the time. Any expert tips?
RF: For natural redheads, use a great conditioner like the Hair Food line which will restore and retain hairs natural nutrients. For redheads by choice, use a color enhancing treatment like a glaze with warm tones to freshen up the warmth.
H2BAR: How do you feel about natural remedies for the hair?
RF: I have to say I stay away from natural remedies and let the professional hair care companies do the work for me. Natural products that are already formulated make my life so much easier, but if I do use a natural remedy it would be ocean water for beach waves when I am on photo shoots.

Lesson learned, redheads. Let your natural hair go free this summer.
