How to be a Redhead turned 9 earlier this month! One of the reasons why Adrienne and I started the H2BAR brand was to have a platform for redheads to turn to for beauty, confidence and lifestyle advice. Throughout these 9 fabulous years, we have tested and tried thousands of beauty products to deem them ‘redhead friendly’. And, over these years, we have noticed more and more companies come out with products specifically made for redheads –- which is amazing!



Here are some new and exciting redhead-specific beauty products on the market:

1. tarte Cosmetics Brow Pencil & Tinted Gel ($24) and Pomade ($17)

We’re huge fans of tarte. Their founder is a redhead (fun fact!), so it’s no wonder they create such wonderful ‘redhead friendly’ products –– everything from face tape foundation to face tape contour concealer. Their new sketch & set brow pencil & tinted gel in taupe and frameworker brow pomade in taupe are two new brow products we’ve recently tested and love.

The sketch & set your brows is a 2-in-1 vegan brow pencil & tinted gel. The full-size, ultra-slim pencil with micro-tip precisely fills in eyebrows with hair-like strokes while the tinted gel nails down brows, keeping them in place all day long. The frameworker brow pomade works like any normal pomade but the shade is what makes this product stand out. 

2. Aloxxi Instaboost Conditioning Color Masque in Copper Cabana ($20)

Are you experiencing fading red hair? Want to ‘up’ your red locks without turning to dye or having to go to the hair salon? Try an at-home hair mask! This Aloxxi mask, featured in the December Quarterly Deluxe H2BAR Box, is a great shade for those redheads out there with some copper in their hues. Lasts up to 10-15 washes.

*Always do a stirp test on your hair before applying throughout to ensure the shade is right for you!

The most popular question #H2BARBox subscribers ask us: “My red hair is fading, what can I do to make it more vibrant?” 👩🏻‍🦰✨ This question comes from natural and ‘by-choice’ redheads. But, natural redheads ask more. We understand because we (Adrienne & Stephanie) are natural redheads. That’s why we include products like this @aloxxihair color depositing mask (this full-size product in every December DELUXE @h2barbox ). It’s going to naturally enhance red hair without dye. This is also great for ‘by-choice’ redheads looking to pro-long their salon visits. If you’re new to a product like this, mix a bit with your normal conditioner & use 1-2 times a week. You’ll notice a subtle enhancement. Nothing permanent and nothing harmful. *Always do a strip test* and #H2BARBox subscribers know they can always email or DM us to ask specific questions! *More in Stories*

3. oVertone Haircare Ginger Coloring Conditioner ($29)

A vegan and cruelty-free ginger conditioner! What could be more perfect? Using gloves, apply evenly to dry hair. Wait 10-15 minutes and rinse with warm water.

*Always do a stirp test on your hair before applying throughout to ensure the shade is right for you!

4. Urban Decay Brow Blade Ink Stain & Waterproof Pencil in Gingersnap ($26)

We were so excited to introduce this product to our redhead subscribers in the January 2020 H2BAR Box. A double-ended ink stain and waterproof pencil that gives you microblade definition and precision. Simply create the shape of your eyebrow with the pencil, then make soft, hair-like strokes with the pen. Isn’t the name of the shade perfect, too?!



5. Celeb Luxury Gem Lites Color Depositing Conditioner ($40)

Similar to a color depositing shampoo, a color depositing conditioner deposits color onto your hair. Its easy-to-use and you see the results in minutes. We LOVE Celeb Luxury’s Gem Lites Colorwash (they were featured in a 2017 H2BAR Box) and it acts as a conditioner rather than a shampoo. Use both products together or apart for added vibrancy.

Rock it like a Redhead!
