Redheads in the Neatherlands have created Redhead Day — an annual festival to celebrate their ginger hair!
The celebration began five years ago in Breda, a city in the south east of the Netherlands, by photographer Bart Rouwenhorst. The day, which was so popular it has spanned into a weekend-long party, brings together all hair colors to celebrate the amber hue. It’s estimated that 7,000 non-redheads attend the events.
Red hair, which is a bit more rare than other shades, was even reported as going extinct (which was later proved untrue, but still…)! The hair color comes with almost as many stereotypes as blonde hair — hot tempered, passionate and fun. If you’re a redhead, do you automatically bond with other people with your haircolor? Since only 1-2% of the world’s population is a redhead naturally, you might want to stick together!
