H2BAR turns 8 years old today!
If you started your day listening to the How to be a Redhead podcast, you know it has been a journey starting the world’s only brand for redheads. Thank you from the bottom of our hears! Let’s take a look down memory lane. The top 8 moments since our launch in 2011:
1. The new e-commerce store
Since 2011, we have probably had 10-11 website designs. Every year, we are excited to change it but always had the dream to create a site that perfectly describes us. This is finally it! The site itself is easier to navigate (the 1st version launching in 2018) but now we have an e-commerce store. Redheads will be able to find beauty products at retail prices. Love a product in your H2BAR Box? Search for it in the new shop! Shop now.
2. H2BAR’s social media followers
We do not take a single follower for granted! We love reading comments on posts and excited to have a community of strong, powerful redheads.
3. The H2BAR Box
When we first launched HowtobeaRedhead.com 8 years ago, we spoke about sending “red beauty boxes” to redheads’ doorstep. But, subscription boxes were just getting popular. Companies like Birchbox had only launched 4 months before H2BAR! After the 2015 5-city Rock it like a Redhead beauty tour, redheads started asking us to ship swag bags to them because they couldn’t attend an event. A light bulb went off in our head — start a subscription box for redheads. So, it was launched at the Seattle 2015 Rock it like a Redhead event and it has been sold out (and growing) ever since.
4. The “How to be a Redhead” Book
The release of the world’s 1st-ever beauty book for redheads, on April 12, 2016, was a beautiful day! Redheads are now represented in beauty sections at book stores. Get your copy here.
5. The 2015 Rock it like a Redhead Beauty Tour & The “How to be a Redhead” 2016 book tour
In 2 years, we traveled to 18 cities to meet H2BAR’s followers. It was awesome to meet everyone and see their excitement!
Where should we travel to in 2019/2020?
6. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd + 4th Annual Love Your Red Hair Day
November 5th is National Love Your Red Hair Day! Each year it has trended on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook! It was created by H2BAR to remind redheads everywhere to love and appreciate their hair.
7. How to be a Redhead Podcast
It had been a request from followers for so long and September 21, 2018, the 1st podcast episode went live. Subscribe on iTunes or find us wherever you listen to podcasts!
8. 50,000 H2BAR Box Milestone
