Father’s Day Gifts: 6 Great Gift Ideas for Your Redhead Dad

Looking for the Perfect Gift?

Father’s Day is approaching and it’s the perfect time to show dad how much you love him, and give him a gift he wouldn’t buy for himself. Wondering what to get your redhead dad? Dad’s can be hard to shop for, but we know some items almost every redhead will enjoy. Here are a few ideas to help you decide what to get your redhead dad for Father’s Day.

1. Sunscreen

If you have a practical dad who doesn’t want more stuff, get him the one thing redheads can (and should) always use…sunscreen. Redheads need to stay safe in the summer sun, and sunscreen is the best way to do it. Sunscreen makes a great gift for redhead dads because they typically have fair and sensitive skin, which is more prone to sunburn and skin damage. Providing them with high-quality sunscreen helps protect their skin from harmful UV rays, reducing the risk of sunburn, premature aging, and skin cancer. It shows thoughtfulness and consideration for their well-being, making it a practical and thoughtful gift choice. Wondering which one to get? Check out: 11 Best Sunscreens for Redhead Men 

2. UPF Clothing

Speaking of sunscreen, most men aren’t wearing it, and if your dad is one of them he needs UPF clothing. It will keep him protected without having to worry about applying and reapplying sunscreen throughout the day! UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) clothing is an excellent gift for redhead dads because it offers added protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays. Redheads often have fair and sensitive skin, making them more susceptible to sunburn and skin damage. UPF clothing is specially designed to block UV radiation, providing an extra layer of defense against sunburn, premature aging, and skin cancer. By gifting UPF clothing, you’re helping them stay safe and comfortable during outdoor activities while showing that you care about their health and well-being.

3. Hats

Another thing redheads always need is hats. It protects our scalps and faces from the sun and keeps our skin healthy. Get dad a hat to his favorite sports team, or a UPF hat, or if he’s a stylist type, get him a wide-brimmed hat to block out even more sun. Hats make a great gift for redhead dads because they provide essential protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays. Redheads often have fair and sensitive skin, making them more susceptible to sunburn and skin damage. A wide-brimmed hat can help shield their face, ears, and neck from direct sunlight, reducing the risk of sunburn and skin cancer. Additionally, hats can also help keep them cool and comfortable during hot weather, making them a practical and thoughtful gift choice for outdoor enthusiasts or anyone who spends time in the sun.

4. Men’s Grooming Tools

Redheads usually have sensitive skin which means you have to be careful about the grooming tools you use. Try getting dad a nice nickel free razor, or a new beard trimmer. If he’s really into grooming, opt for the Finally Have Brows® Clear Brow gel to tame his eyebrows into shape. 

5. Men’s Skincare

Besides sunscreen, most men don’t use much skincare but it’s really good for your skin, especially as you age. Try getting dad on the skincare train if he isn’t already. Start slow with a nice facial lotion, or an aftershave. If he’s already up on his skincare, try upgrading a few pieces or adding to his collection! Skincare is a thoughtful gift for redhead dads, as their fair and sensitive skin benefits from extra care. High-quality products help protect against sunburn and nourish their complexion, promoting a sense of well-being and self-care.

6. Want to do something meaningful instead of a traditional gift?

We know dads can be weird about gifts, so sometimes the best gift you can give them is an experience. Does your dad love being active? Maybe he loves golf or riding bikes. Or maybe he’s a little more chill and wants to spend the day at a brewery or browsing a bookstore? Whatever dad likes to do, spend the day doing it with him. He will enjoy spending time with you and it will be a memory to cherish. 

Want to elevate the day-out experience, figure out what type of events dad loves. If he has a favorite band, try to get tickets to their next show, or maybe he’s more of a theater and arts person and wants to see a play. You could snag some tickets to his favorite sports team’s next game, or even to something unique like a magic show. If you really want to go big, plan a vacation for him, and surprise him with the tickets on Father’s Day.

Rock it like a Redhead!

Another redhead-approved exfoliating product to enjoy. After cleansing, sweep the pre-soaked Liquid Gold pad over the face, neck, and décolletage, avoiding the eyes and delicate areas.

Ask a Redhead: What Eyeshadow Color Is Best For My Eye Color?

Make your eyes and red hair POP...

Every week, we put out a call for your redhead questions. This gives you a chance to get advice or input from our team of redheads. From beauty and fashion to lifestyle, redheads are in a unique boat, and we want to help make this community a place where you can turn to for all your redhead needs.

This week, we’re answering a question from Facebook that reads: “Looking for suggestions on eyeshadow colors for redheads with blue eyes, fair skin, and freckles. I have always used neutral colors like tans and browns but I am ready for a change.”

Redheads have a variety of eye colors (like any other hair color) including blue, green, brown or hazel. Blue eyes are often associated with redheads, but it ultimately depends on the genetic makeup of the individual and their family heritage. While blue eyes may be more common among redheads in some populations, others may have different predominant eye colors. That’s why we are giving some recommendations for each eye color. If you’re looking for eyeshadow (and eyeliner) colors that will accentuate your eye color and pair well with your red hair…keep reading:

Red Hair + Blue Eyes: Best Eyeshadow Colors

For blue-eyed redheads, we love neutral options like a peachy tan, warm gold, copper/bronze, and champagne. Colors with orangey undertones will really make your blue eyes pop since orange is blue’s complementary color. If you want to add a bit more color, try wearing a deep blue shadow to create a monochromatic look and enhance the blue color. Pinks of all shades look amazing with blue eyes. Opt for a more cool-toned pink, or go for more of a coral pink, either way, it will look amazing.

Red Hair + Brown Eyes: Best Eyeshadow Colors 

For brown-eyed redheads, some great neutral options are gold, champagne, and deep bronze. These colors will enhance the gold flecks in your eyes making them shine. For a bit more color try some deep jewel tones like plum, emerald, or a nice aquamarine. These deeper colors will enhance your eyes without making them appear too dark or colorless. 

READ: Best ‘Redhead Friendly’ Palettes for Redheads Based on Eye Color

Red Hair + Green Eyes: Best Eyeshadow Colors 

For green-eyed redheads, champagne and warm-toned nudes are a wonderful neutral option. We also love warm pinks, cranberries, and mauves. These warm reddish tones will make your green eyes pop since red is green’s complementary color. You can also pair different shades of green with your green eyes for a gorgeous monochromatic look. 

READ: Best Eyeshadows To Get Your Eyes To Pop

Red Hair + Hazel Eyes: Best Eyeshadow Colors

For hazel-eyed redheads, you can pull from either the brown or green palette. Gold and bronze are amazing neutral options, as is a dark brown to enhance the green parts of your eye. When opting for pinks, greens, and purples go for a medium-toned, slightly muted color to let your eyes be the star of the show. 

Red Hair + Gray Eyes: Best Eyeshadow Colors 

For gray-eyed redheads, silver, deep gray, and black make great neutral options. To make the blue elements of your eyes pop, try violet, deep denim blue, or a gray lavender shade. Your gray eyes are very neutral and can rock just about any color, so play around and see what you like!

Remember, these are colors that will complement and enhance your eye and hair color, but they aren’t the only options. If you like a color, rock it. Let us know your favorite eyeshadow colors to wear and what your eye colors is.

Glitter Hair: The Trend Redheads Should Avoid This Summer

There are safer ways to add sparkle to your red hair

We all love a good sparkle — especially in the summer months when the sun is shining and weather is sweet. Recently, there’s been a trend going around social media to get “glitter hair”. The trend involves adding craft glitter to clear shampoo, washing your hair, and then rinsing out the shampoo to leave some of the glitter behind.

Why it’s dangerous

We don’t know if this works, but we do know it might not be a good idea. First, craft glitter isn’t meant for the body or hair. It could cause scalp irritation and even some damage to your hair. If you use heat on hair that has small bits of plastic in it, it could melt and bond to the hair, damaging it permanently. Additionally, craft glitter could clog up your drain causing some serious home issues. Here is a “tutorial” from a TikToker showing how they apply glitter to the hair in the shower: 

@tessapeay

♬ original sound – 🩰💐 Barbie Nostalgia 💐🩰

Safe ways to add sparkle to your red hair:

If you want your red hair to sparkle, there are a few healthy, safe ways you can go about it. Skip the craft glitter and try one of these instead. 

1. Hair Tinsel

Hair tinsel is a quick and easy way to add some sparkle to your hair. You can install hair tinsel in your own hair, or head to the salon and have in installed. Just make sure you find one that’s heat safe — especially if you like to straighten or blow dry your hair.

♬ original sound – GrooveGenius – GrooveGenius

2. Hair Glitter Spray

Use a biodegradable hair glitter spray like the Eva NYC Kween Silver Body and Hair Glitter Spray. The key here is to use something that’s made for the hair and is biodegradable. If you do use a glitter spray, make sure you wash it out really well to avoid irritation or build up, especially on the scalp. 

3. Hair Gems

These super cute temporary hair gems are a great way to add a little sparkle without any of the damage. You simply stamp them onto the hair and let the sticky back hold them in place. Pluck them off when you’re done and wash your hair like normal.

4. Hair Jewelry 

If you want to add some shine without the glitter, try some silver or gold hair jewlery. You can attach it to your hair with small slips, weave it through braids or add it to your hair-tie or hair clip.

5. Finally Glossy® Shine & Luminosity Shampoo for Redheads

Finally Glossy® is a special shampoo to help strengthen, shine, and add hydration to red hair. This clean formula is formulated with Vitamin B3, olive oil, coconut oil, and green tea. This is NOT a color-depositing shampoo. It is red because we want it to feel satisfying when applying. It’s just for appearance and will not edit your red hair. It is suitable for frequent washes and for ALL shades of red hair. Are you ready to add a natural radiance to your red hair?

Finally Glossy Shampoo: $27

“Bridgerton” Inspired Hair and Makeup Looks for Redheads

We're also sharing a few TikTok tutorials for you to follow

The hit Netflix series Bridgerton is back for another season and it’s simply been the talk of the town. No, really, redheads. If you haven’t watched Bridgerton, you’ve surely read about it while scrolling on social media. This season, like the first season, we’ve got a redhead leading lady. Penelope Featherington is played by Irish actress, Nicola Coughlan. Although she’s Irish, Coughlan isn’t a natural redhead and wears a red wig on the show — but the red suits her perfectly. 

With the popularity of this new season, we’re seeing Bridgerton-inspired hair and makeup looks circulating the internet. Penelope has quite a glow-up at the beginning of the season, and her new look is glowy and sexy with big voluminous curls. Daphne (the leading lady in season 1) has also inspired many redheads with her soft, sophisticated look. We’ve been loving this fun trend and wanted to share a few tutorials for redheads to rock: 

Bridgerton-inspired makeup for redheads

Creating a Bridgerton-inspired makeup look for redheads is stunning. Start with a flawless complexion using a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer. Focus on peachy blushes to complement your hair color and give a natural flush.

For the eyes, go for soft, romantic shades like mauves, pinks, and gold. Blend them for a subtle yet captivating look. Don’t forget to add some winged eyeliner for that classic touch.

Finish the eyes with Finally Have Lashes for added drama. Lastly, opt for a rosy or nude lip color like Finally Bold to tie the look together, keeping it elegant and timeless.

Bridgerton-inspired hair

To achieve a Bridgerton-inspired hair look for redheads, consider incorporating soft, romantic curls or waves. Start by applying a heat protectant spray to your hair and then use a curling iron or wand to create loose curls or waves.

For an authentic Bridgerton feel, you can add subtle braids or twists to your hair, perhaps framing your face or adorning the sides. Consider incorporating delicate hair accessories like pearls or ribbons to enhance the romantic vibe.

If you prefer an updo, a soft, loosely gathered bun, or a half-up, half-down style with cascading curls can also evoke the elegant and sophisticated aesthetic of the show.

Finish with a light-hold hairspray to ensure your hairstyle stays in place while maintaining a natural movement.

Aside from makeup and hair, there are several other ways redheads can embody the Bridgerton look:

1. Fashion: Embrace Regency-inspired fashion by opting for empire waist dresses, flowy fabrics, pastel colors, and floral patterns. Look for high-necked or off-the-shoulder styles to capture the romanticism of the era.

2. Accessories: Add regal touches with accessories like gloves, delicate jewelry such as pearl earrings or cameo brooches, and embellished headbands or tiaras. Consider incorporating lace or chiffon scarves for an extra romantic flair.

3. Attitude: Channel the confidence and poise of Bridgerton characters by carrying yourself with grace and elegance. Focus on maintaining good posture and speaking eloquently to embody the refined demeanor of the era.

4. Etiquette: Pay attention to etiquette and manners, mirroring the social norms and customs depicted in the show. This includes polite conversation, graceful movements, and a sense of propriety in social interactions.

By incorporating these elements into your overall look and demeanor, you can fully embrace the Bridgerton aesthetic as a redhead.

Are You A Redhead Who Always Has Red Cheeks? Here’s Why!

Find Out Which Products to Avoid

Does it feel like your cheeks are always flushed, no matter what you do? Having flushed or red cheeks isn’t always the ideal look, but it’s something many redheads deal with daily. Flushed cheeks after exercising, when out in the heat, or triggered by a food or drink,  may be a sign of an underlying issue or skin condition. Here are a few reasons you might be experiencing ongoing redness in your cheeks.  

Rosacea

Probably the most common cause of red cheeks is rosacea. This skin condition is most common in women and those with fair skin, which makes redhead women the prime demographic. Rosacea can be triggered or irritated by heat, cold, exercise, and consumption of alcohol or spicy foods. In addition to redness, rosacea may present as enlarged blood vessels and small bumps on the skin. 

If you have rosacea, stay away from skincare products with irritating ingredients like alcohol, fragrance, and some acids. Exfoliate gently and sparingly, and keep skin hydrated. Those with rosacea can benefit from skincare with ingredients like niacinamide, azelaic acid, hyaluronic acid, aloe, ceramides, and green tea.

Eczema

Another common skin condition that can cause redness in the cheeks is atopic dermatitis or eczema. This condition causes dry, itchy, and inflamed skin, and is more common in redheads than in other hair colors.

If you have eczema, stay away from skincare products with irritating ingredients like fragrance, essential oils, lanolin, dyes, sulfates, and alcohol. Instead, opt for skincare with ingredients like aloe, coconut oil, hyaluronic acid, oatmeal, shea butter, niacinamide, and ceramides. Keeping skin hydrated is key to reducing redness from eczema

Skin irritation

A common short-term cause of facial redness is skin irritation. Redheads have more sensitive skin than other hair colors, and sometimes redness in the skin may be caused by skincare ingredients, over-exfoliating, or even razor bumps from shaving or dermaplaning. The best way to avoid this is to patch-test any new products, be gentle on your skin, and use soothing products to heal any irritation.

Sun damage

Over time, exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can cause damage to your skin. When the skin is damaged, the body’s natural response is to send more blood to that area in an attempt to heal it. This can cause redness under the skin and the appearance of small blood vessels. For short-term redness, aloe vera can be used to help prevent inflammation. For more long-term damage, laser therapy is the best option.*

Skin barrier damage

The outermost layer of your skin is there to protect you from pollutants, UV rays, irritation, and toxins. When the skin barrier is damaged, your skin can become red, dry, and irritated. Skin barrier damage often leads to eczema. Your skin barrier can be weakened due to environmental reasons, allergies, sun exposure, harsh products, medications, or other genetic reasons.

The best way to keep your skin barrier healthy and strong is always using sunscreen, keeping skin hydrated and moisturized, not over-exfoliating, using gentle products, avoiding irritants, and eating a healthy amount of fats. 

*Please consult your doctor and/or dermatologist.

Bardot Bangs Are Back: Here’s How Redheads Can Master the 1960s-Inspired Trend

How to Style + Maintain

Bangs are trending, and not just any type of bangs: Bardot bangs! According to a new Vogue article, it’s one of Google’s top search terms. Wonder where you’ve seen these bangs before? They are inspired by French actress Brigitte Bardot and have been made popular in recent months by celebs like Sabrina Carpenter, Selena Gomez, and Lana Del Ray. 

The 1960s-style bangs are quite full, they look lived in, and often have some volume or curl to them. They can be worn to the front or swept to each side. Longer Bardot bangs worn swept to the side would be very similar to curtain bangs, which have been trending for a while now, too.

When it comes to getting bangs, the biggest hurdle is how to style them. You love them in a salon and then the first time you sleep or shower, it’s game over and your bangs look insane (you know what we’re talking about). If you do get Bardot bangs, here are a few things to do so you can style them to perfection at home.

  • Get a tutorial from your stylist: The best thing to do when getting bangs, especially if it’s your first time, is to have your stylist teach you how to style them. They can show you methods and tools to use, and you can even practice right in the salon with their guidance. Take a video or notes so you can recreate the look at home. 
  • Watch videos online: Social media is a great place for learning how to style your bangs. Everyone has their own unique methods, so you might find one that works for you. Wondering how to get Sabrina Carpenter’s style of Bardot bangs? Read How Redheads Can Get the Sabrina Carpenter Look.
  • Get a round brush or a blow-dry brush: For Bordot-style bangs, you need to be able to create that volume underneath. Using a round brush and a blow dryer, or a round blow-dry brush will help you achieve this look. 
  • Learn how to do a bang refresh: Bangs get greasy and messy very easily. Learn how to wash just your bangs for a little refresh. Then you can hit them with the blow dryer to shape and style.

Here are the best ways to maintain your new bangs:

Managing bangs as a redhead involves some specific considerations to maintain their style and health:

1. Trimming Regularly: Keep your bangs trimmed to prevent them from getting too long and obstructing your vision or becoming uneven. A professional stylist can help maintain their shape.

2. Blow-Drying Technique: Use a round brush to blow-dry your bangs straight or in the desired style. Avoid using high heat to prevent damage, and finish with a blast of cool air to set the style.

3. Dry Shampoo: Redheads can sometimes have finer hair texture, making bangs prone to greasiness. Use dry shampoo sparingly to absorb excess oil and extend the time between washes.

4. Styling Products: Choose lightweight styling products like mousses or light-hold gels to add volume or control to your bangs without weighing them down or causing buildup.

5. Avoid Overwashing: Washing your bangs too frequently can strip away natural oils, leading to dryness and frizz. Try to limit washing to every other day or as needed, and use a sulfate-free shampoo.

6. Protect from Heat: Apply a heat protectant spray before using hot styling tools on your bangs to prevent damage and maintain their health and shine.

7. Training Bangs: If you have side-swept bangs, consider training them to stay in place by blow-drying them in the desired direction and using a little hairspray to set the style.

8. Consider Your Face Shape: Different bang styles suit different face shapes. Consult with your stylist to find the best bangs for your face shape and lifestyle.

9. Accessorize: Use headbands, clips, or bobby pins to keep bangs out of your face when needed, especially during workouts or windy days.

10. Professional Advice: For personalized guidance on bang maintenance and styling, seek advice from a hairstylist who understands the unique characteristics of red hair.

How Redhead Men Can Stay Sun Protected This Summer

Important tips for all redheads

Did you know studies show that less than 20% of men wear sunscreen? Redheads of all genders are far more likely to develop some form of skin cancer in their lives, and when coupled with a lack of sunscreen use, redhead men are at the highest risk of anyone. Staying protected from the sun is extremely important for your health and safety, but it doesn’t mean you have to put your summer fun on hold.

We’ve got a few tips for how redhead men can stay protected this summer — and still enjoy the sunshine:

Wear SPF

The best thing redhead men can do to keep themselves protected is to wear sunscreen. You should apply SPF of at least 30 to your face and body every 2 hours. Wearing sunscreen allows you to be out in the sun without worrying about sunburn or damage from UV rays. If you’re a redhead who exercises or plays sports outdoors, make sure you have a good sweatproof SPF like these.

Use UPF clothing

We know sometimes you can’t reapply your sunscreen, or maybe you know yourself enough to know you just won’t do it. Wearing UPF clothing can protect you from the sun when sunscreen can’t. UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) clothing works by blocking the majority of the sun’s UV radiation. Similar to SPF in sunscreen, UPF measures the effectiveness of fabric in protecting against UV radiation. UPF clothing is typically made from tightly woven fabrics, treated with UV-absorbing chemicals, or designed with special coatings to block or absorb UV rays. This helps reduce the amount of UV radiation that reaches the skin, providing an additional layer of protection against sunburns and skin damage. UPF shirts are great for working out, yard work, hiking, sporting events, throwing on after a swim, and more!

Wear a hat

For redhead men with short hair, you might not realize how exposed your neck and scalp are to the sun. It’s one of the most common spots to develop skin cancer because it’s often forgotten. Wearing a hat will keep you protected from sunburn and harmful UV rays. Redhead men can choose hats that provide ample coverage and protection from the sun’s rays. Wide-brimmed hats, such as those with brims measuring at least three inches, offer excellent shade for the face, neck, and ears. Bucket hats with a wide brim all around are also effective at shading the entire head.  Look for styles with adjustable straps or chin cords to ensure a secure fit, especially in windy conditions.

Stay in the shade

It might not be the most fun option, but redheads can’t handle too much sun. Make sure you take breaks in the shade or under an umbrella. Seek out natural shade from trees, umbrellas, or architectural structures like buildings or awnings. When outdoors, prioritize shaded areas such as parks with dense tree canopies or covered seating areas. Additionally, consider bringing portable shade options like pop-up tents, beach umbrellas, or sun shelters to create shade wherever you go. Wearing wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and lightweight, breathable clothing can also help minimize sun exposure while enjoying shaded areas.

Wear sunglasses

Use sunglasses with UV protection to shield your eyes and the delicate skin around them. Redhead men, like everyone, should wear sunglasses to protect their eyes from harmful UV rays, reduce squinting, and enhance visual comfort. Sunglasses with UV protection prevent eye damage and conditions like cataracts while reducing glare and preventing wrinkles caused by squinting in bright sunlight. Overall, sunglasses are essential for maintaining eye health and comfort outdoors.

Stay hydrated

Staying hydrated, especially during prolonged sun exposure, is crucial for several reasons. It helps prevent dehydration, which can lead to fatigue and other health issues, by replenishing lost fluids due to sweating. Adequate hydration also supports the body’s ability to regulate temperature, reducing the risk of heat-related illnesses like heat exhaustion and heatstroke. Additionally, proper hydration is essential for maintaining bodily functions such as digestion and circulation, while also promoting skin health by preventing dryness and sun damage. Overall, staying hydrated is essential for maintaining health and comfort when spending time in the sun.

Be mindful of reflective surfaces

Being mindful of reflective surfaces like water and sand is important because they can significantly increase UV exposure. These surfaces can reflect and amplify UV rays, leading to greater UV radiation exposure to the skin and eyes. This heightened exposure increases the risk of sunburn and skin damage. Therefore, it’s essential to take precautions such as wearing sunscreen, protective clothing, and sunglasses when near reflective surfaces to minimize the risk of UV-related harm.

Check the UV index

Checking the UV index is important because it provides information about the intensity of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. This helps individuals take appropriate precautions to protect their skin and eyes from potential harm. A higher UV index indicates stronger UV radiation levels. By checking the UV index, people can adjust their outdoor activities and use protective measures like sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and shade to minimize UV exposure and reduce the risk of UV-related health issues.

The year is almost halfway over and we’re just getting into prime sunscreen season. Memorial Day marks the start of summer and as redheads, we’re always happy “Don’t Fry Day” is held the Friday before this American holiday each year. Its purpose is to raise awareness about the dangers of overexposure to the sun and to promote sun safety measures, such as wearing sunscreen, protective clothing, and sunglasses, and seeking shade during peak sun hours. It’s a reminder to protect your skin from harmful UV rays to prevent skin cancer and premature aging.
