"Red hair is definitely in fashion right now," says New Zealand hairdresser Richard Kavanagh, who is working at Milan Fashion Week. A fortnight ago Kavanagh was working backstage at New York Fashion Week where redheaded models walked for Marc Jacobs, Diesel, Rag & Bone and Ralph Lauren. Kavanagh also worked on two fashion shoots "featuring gorgeous red-haired models".
