My mom was a true redhead as a kid, a bright carrot top, but thanks to her Sicilian mom, she also had brown eyes — an unusual mix. I grew up with coppery strawberry blonde hair, which turned a little more reddish with age. I love all shades of red hair color. However, it’s the trickiest color to dye, and it fades the fastest. A good red — whether real or dyed — is something special indeed.
