8 Red Hair Color Ideas to Inspire Your Next Trip to the Salon

Aiming to make a statement with your hairs? Red hair color is constantly a great choice. And while only a little portion of individuals are genetically blessed with the shade naturally, we can alter our hair color every other week if we so desire. With that in mind, we’re manifesting red hair for ourselves.

Before you switch up your color, understand that keeping red hair is no joke. “Red is the largest color molecule, so it’s the most likely of all colors to fade out of your hair the quickest,” described celebrity hair stylist Sunnie Brook. Brook recommends doing a color revitalize every four to 6 weeks to fight fading, and stated to use a low-pH hair shampoo and conditioner, such as Biolage’s Color Last duo, to keep your red looking fresh.

Dark Red

Celeb hairdresser Guy Tang said Zendaya’s red is the perfect natural dark red tone. “If you wish to attempt a dark red, ask your stylist for a cherry soda red tone or a red-enhanced brunette that is a level 4 to six,” Tang stated. “If you are a brunette and desire a subtle variation of this, ask your stylist to blend highlights of a dark red.”

Orange Sapphire
Nobody does strong red hair rather like Bella Thorne. Lorena M. Valdes, a colorist at Maxine Salon in Chicago, said that this is an intense copper-red with ribbons for lowlights and copper-orange for highlights, which creates a multi-dimensional color. “Request all-over color with a balayage, and with highlights and lowlights after to recreate this appearance.”

Turn up the strength with this strong shade. Celebrity hair stylist Nikki Lee suggests requesting for a deep red-brown with copper undertones. “This color truly draws out the warm tones in your skin and looks beautiful in the sunlight,” Lee stated.

Natural Muted Copper
While Kendall Jenner’s red is technically a copper, Tang stated it still falls in the red classification. “This type of color looks more natural in indoor lighting and lively in the sun,” he warned.

Dawn Copper
We’re consumed with this sweet red on Sydney Sweeney. “In some light, you will seem like this tone leans more into the golden-blonde family, and in other light, those warm coppery– not to be confused with brassy– tones will provide you all the radiance that golden hour has to use, no matter the time of day,” said Brook.

Strawberry Copper
This is a lighter variation of the copper all of us know and love, as it has brighter ribbons of strawberry blonde. Valdes said to ask your color expert for an all-over bright copper, followed up by a tailored emphasize or balayage service.

Rose Gold
Celeb colorist Greg Gilmore likes the idea of having light blonde that is softly toned with a nearly iridescent red or warm tone however deeply saturated towards the root. “She still can be thought about a redhead but she can also be a less dedicated red at the same time,” said Gilmore. To achieve it, he said to request a red root color spot with softly toned ends, like Sienna Miller’s fairy red hair.
