Everything for Redheads & Ginger With Attitude Team Up for Redhead Day, Holland

Share Article

On 1st & 2nd September 2012, two flame-haired, British friends will make their first pilgrimage to the annual Redhead Day – a hajj for gingers without the religious connotations.

Redheads are used to standing out in a crowd, so I can only imagine how I’ll feel to blend in to a sea of other Redheads!

“Two Redheads Are Better Than One,” according to both Jessica Shailes of Everything for Redheads and Barry Singleton of Ginger With Attitude. This year, the organisers are aiming to break a Guinness World record by enticing the largest ever number of redheads to gather for the mass photo-shoot to take place on Sunday 2nd September.

Redhead Day (Roodharigendag in Dutch) is the name of a summer festival that takes place each first weekend of September in the city of Breda, in the Netherlands. The two-day festival is a gathering of people with natural red hair, but is also focused on art related to the colour red.

Activities during the festival are lectures, workshops and demonstrations which are aimed specifically at red-haired people. The festival attracts attendance from 50 countries and is free due to sponsorship of the local government.

“Redheads are used to standing out in a crowd, so I can only imagine how I’ll feel to blend in to a sea of other Redheads!” says Jessica “I’m sure it will be an amazing experience, and I can’t wait to meet other redheads. Getting a group of redheads together in this way is pretty rare, so we lack the opportunity for community that most other minority groups have. There will be a real opportunity to share experiences, opinions and sun block!”

Everything for Redheads is a community and ecommerce site by a British mother and daughter who had become fed up with not being catered for on the high street with reference to make up, hair care and skin products.

Ginger with Attitude (GWA) is a collaboration between Ginger With Altitude, Barry Singleton, a 6 and a half foot ginger from Leeds, and Ginger With Outitude (raven haired London-based freelance creative-type, Graham Forbes). The fledgling brand aims to spread positive ginger vibes globally with tshirt and apparel designs such as Dawn of the Red, I See Red People and Orange Pulp Fiction.

Barry, adds, “I look forward to having the opportunity to meet many of the ginger folk I have stumbled across on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr in an unique environment. Can you imagine thousands of redheads coming together to celebrate everything about their red hair? I heard about the event four years ago, and it was part of the inspiration behind GWA. ”
