How To Be A Redhead

S4, Ep 6: Vibrant Red Hair + Taylor Tomasi Hill! With Guest & Hair Color Virtuoso, Gion Vincent

March 25, 2022

Let's take you back to 2011. We, Adrienne + Stephanie, moved to New York City after launching We were working to start a social/website presence around loving your red hair, something that had never been done before. Although other New York natural redheads were an inspiration to us: Julianne Moore, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Jessica Chastain -- there was one who stood out amongst the rest. Her name is Taylor Tomasi Hill. Yes, yes, we know. She is not a natural redhead, but her street fashion was EVERYTHING to us. It is still is.

Taylor's style oozes confidence. Her hair is always styled effortlessly. And her red hair is vibrant and loud. See some of her favorite looks by clicking here.

Our dream was to accidentally run into her strutting down New York City streets in a leather skirt, the perfect heal, a floral top, and wavy red hair. Or maybe even platform shoes, loud-printed pants, and a leather jacket. Or, maybe even a leopard scarf, a great blouse and matching leopard sunglasses. TWO REDHEAD GIRLS CAN DREAM, RIGHT?!

The dream never happened because we were never at the right place at the right time. But, who knows what the future holds. *Fingers are always crossed*

So, you can imagine our excitement when Taylor's hair colorist, Gion Vincent started tagging @HowtobeaRedhead on Instagram.

It's our absolute pleasure to have Gion Vincent on today's podcast. He's a true hair color virtuoso known for his work from the most natural blondes to dramatic redheads. He's known for his versatility in creating high fashion hair color. Gion originally trained under the very watchful eye of Beth Minardi. He has perfected his skills and you can visit him at the Sam Brocato Salon in New York City. Taylor Tomasi Hill revealed Gion was the architect of her signature copper locks in the Fashion week issue of Goop magazine and it provided Gion with a ton of buzz. He is sophisticated and has a nuanced approach to creating rich, stunning hair color.

Plus, Gion's mother is a natural-born redhead, so he really understands redheads.
