Red Hair & Freckles.
Posted on February 7, 2013
As a young girl I wished so desperately that I could ‘remove’ my freckles. I tried lemon juice, masks, scrubbing. When I was at school (in the 80’s) blond hair & blue eyes were everything. I came to realise a number of years ago that my freckles and red hair are part of me and I have grown to love, embrace & celebrate these unique characteristics. I remember seeing Nicole Kidman on the cover of Dolly Magazine – maybe in 1983, she too had freckles and I felt an instant kinship with her because I also have ‘the’ red hair. In my thirties (& to this present day) I became completely enchanted with Julianne Moore. I was so proud seeing gorgeous sexy women with red hair and freckles! Since becoming obsessed with the arts in one form or another I have come across some AMAZING shots of women (and men) where the freckle is what makes the photo so spectacular. So I together with Ms Kidman and Ms Moore raise a glass to you all and powerfully knowing ‘women with red hair & freckles are beautiful’. This post is a salute to all women who are in the envious position of having both these characteristics.
