Red Alert! Gingers Gather at Redhead Days

 

 

Red hair always looks different in a beautiful way. Seems like redheads are aware of it, because they gather since 2005. And they called it ‘Redhead Days’.

 

The artist Bart Rouwenhorst decided to make a painting with 15 redhead models and advertised it. The demand was higher than expected, and this was how Redhead Days is born.

 

 

Redhead Days is both a festival and a non-profit organization. It is located in Breda, Netherlands. Redhead people from both Netherlands and other countries gather in Breda. They celebrate to have red hair and this celebration includes camping, boat trips, fashion shows and many more during 3 days.

 

 

Having red head might sound cool but if you have natural red head, it means you are in the 1% – 2% population of the world who have the risk of skin cancer caused by deficiency of melanin pigment.

 

 

The revenue of the event is donated to the institutions for cancer fighting. Also, the redhead people help each other too. So that they have created a community. It is also possible to be a volunteer for the event.

 

 

There are also group photos taken at the event and they are very lovely. This community seems to grow bigger and will have more projects for redhead people. Red is the new black?
