H2BAR:What is your secret for keeping your red hair so beautiful?
CK: Thank you! I wash my hair every other day.
I absolutely love RedKen products! The shampoo and conditioner keeps my hair looking shiny and healthy. Also, Bumble & Bumbleproducts are popular in beauty pageants; it helped me maintain my red locks and I’ve never turned back!
H2BAR:Has having red hair inspired your career?
CK: How to be a Redhead is right, being a redhead is a lifestyle. People talk about blondes and what not, but being a redhead is so unique and special.
When I was growing up, I hated being a redhead because I was tall with braces and glasses; I wanted to be a brunette so badly. But, I eventually grew into myself and now I absolutely love being a redhead!
H2BAR: The How to be a Redhead audience is wondering, what is your favorite beauty/ fashion trend this season?
CK: Bright colors! I use to only wear neutral colors because my hair is so bright, but I learned sporting colors is so fun. It makes everything (makeup and hair) pop!
Don’t be afraid to wear prints or bright colors!
H2BAR:Are there some essential “redhead friendly” makeup products you can’t live without?
CK: I am a die-hard fan of anything by Clinique! All Clinique products are fragrance-free which is essential for sensitive redheaded skin!
I also never leave the house without wearing 40 SPF on my face!

I love Amy Adam’s red hair!
