Redhead bobby pins from How to be a Redhead

Redheads are the often forgotten color range when it comes to hair accessories. When trying to find pins and elastics to match your hair color, you’ll see rows of gold, beige, brown and black hair accessories but vey few red.

Adrienne and Stephanie, the two redhead sisters behind the site How to be a Redhead thought it was time there was a bobby pin just for redheads so they released one themselves.

Available in three shades to suit ginger redheads, true ruby-reds, and dark auburn redheads. Adrienne and Stephanie say, “We took the time and created redhead bobby pins for each of those redheads and put them all in one easy package. The redhead bobby pins will camouflage into the hair of some redheads, but the redhead bobby pins have been designed to make red hair pop.”

These pins however aren’t just for redheads. I love the look of colored bobby pins in any hair colour. This gorgeous style below from the Cacharel A/W 2012 show is an easy way to wear colored bobby pins.

You can find the redhead pins at How to be a Redhead.

    After several tries the past few years, I had to give up on the idea of clip-in hair extensions because of color issues. Which is rather unfortunate–it looked like fun. I think redheads get forgotten in a lot of hair & makeup products. It wasn’t until about a year ago a friend of mine (makeup artist) told me there are now eyebrow pencils for redheads–for years I had to stick with a blonde-ish shade. The bobby pins may be worth my looking into. Right now, if I have the choice between black and brown, I choose the brown more often than not.

      I also have a sister-in-law (who sells makeup) frequently steer me away from any red-ish color of lipstick because of my hair color. I would love to find a red shade with a little orange undertone & rock it. Why should blondes, brunettes, and women of every other hair color have all the fun?

      Hi Mindy, I have found one range of red clip in extension – they are called Hair Secrets. Otherwise you could try coloring a set to match your hair?

      LOL I almost made that typo too! Yes, they sold out at their Rock it like a Redhead event but will have more available on their site soon.
