Manchester hair trend - red means RED!
While on a weekend jolly to Manchester, there was one trend that kept creeping up where ever we were, *bright* red hair. No, not Florence and the Machine 'Ariel red', not Mad Mens Christina Hendricks 'glowing auburn', but tomato/fire engine/pillar box red!
And I liked it. These girls looked like super heroes (in the best possible way) and were playing with the new 'cartoon hair' trend that won't go away (thanks Katy Perry), but red seems to works much better than blue or purple as a day to day, real life, I'm-not-a-pop-star kind of way.
@HJi_Rachael) and I were having a twitter-chat about this trend; she'd spotted it in Manchester herself, and as I tried to come to grips with just how much work this shade of red would be to keep up, it seems it's as simple as Northern girls make the time/effort to get their hair touched up, and their colour fresh. And I can vouch for that, there wasn't one washed out or sad looking red do there, just bright red, and I'm beyond lazy with my colour (whether I'm blonde or brunette). But Mancunians aren't the only ones getting their RED on, pop princesses Rihanna and Allison Iraheta have also been championing the fade-defying red.
What do you make of bright red hair - yay or nay?
