In August, the ‘Ocean Eyes’ singer renewed her statement hairdo, the famous black gloss with a highlighting root dye but this time in bright red. Later a month, Megan Fox, the ‘Transformers’ star introduced a spectacular ‘velvet bob’, as her stylist named it.

The alluring and desired hairdo of the new age has in fact an extensive history surprisingly.
However, very few people are there who are naturally redheads, although the color of their hair has been both fetishized and feared over the hundreds of years. Back in the time when witch trials in the 15th century peaked, having ‘ginger hair’ was seen and treated as a trait of the devil evidence and often punished and killed. In the 17th century, Obadiah Walker, an English academic marked a hastily matter to the vast spread culture of demoing red-haired men, said, “Each man disparageth his fellow-creature,” continued stating, “And this is often done upon such trivial grounds… The putting of disesteem upon persons, merely because of the native colour of the excrement of the head.”

When talking about Megan Fox and Dua Lipa, the discussion could take a while about the ‘coincidence’ of their rustic hair styling, it was mindfully scheduled for new projects. Rachael Gibson said, “It’s such a visual thing, we can scan (hair color) in a second. And red has this enduring appeal in terms of being eye-catching,” continued adding, “It’s a good time to change your hair when you’ve got an album out.”
