Red-haired people have always attracted attention with their unusualness. Throughout the history of art, artists have revealed the powerful symbolism of red hair, which at different times alternately transmitted beauty and femininity, debauchery and sensuality, then divinity and holiness. Stunning beauties look at us from the canvases of Sandro Botticelli, Caravaggio, Gustav Klimt, John William Waterhouse, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Jose de Ribera, Edgar Degas, Edvard Munch, Auguste Renoir, Anthony Frederick Sandys, Amedeo Modigliani, Gustave Courbet, Piero di Cosimo, Bartolomeo Veneto and many other renowned painters. Being the standard of female beauty in art, when applied to men of fiery color, hair has become a kind of disadvantage. For many centuries, redheads have been portrayed as traitors, thieves and anyone who deserves contempt - thus forming a stereotype, from which men with "flaming" hair often suffer. Looking at history, you can see that in ancient times redheads were often persecuted. For example, the Egyptians sacrificed "heads of fire" to the god Ra to ensure a good harvest. Medieval Europe, however, considered all red-haired witches and sorcerers. But, for example, the rococo style of redheads simply idolizes. In the Renaissance, redhead was suitable for either sinners or saints, but no one else. Ginger colour of hair  in any case meant "otherness". Modernist painters in the 19th and 20th centuries also used the symbolism of red hair. The loosened fiery ginger hair of Klimt's heroines is full of sensual eroticism, praises femininity and embodies the artist's philosophical idea of ​​the feminine principle of the world. Red hair stands out in the crowd, and its owners, like the charming food stylist in Florence, Liudmila Musatova, look overwhelmingly sensual. BeretkAh ...! headpieces maximize the "wow effect".

 

Interestingly pretty much any hats or accessories in any colours suit those ladies. One thing is important: one should choose what  message is to be sent by adding any headwear to your look. Do you want to look more bright and noticeable or rather keep “the fire” under the control - this is up to you to decide!
