Red hair is red hot. Whether you are a natural redhead looking for a new red shade or perhaps you have blonde, brown or bronde hair and you want a bold new change, red has a lot of versatility.
If you are considering going red then you need to consider your skin-tone. Generally speaking, ladies with ‘pink’ skin or cool skin tones pull off red the best. But if you have warm or olive skin tones, then don’t worry because there is a red out there for everybody. Secondly, remember that red, like blonde, washes out quickly. You should have healthy hair before you go red to guarantee the color will stick and be bright and vibrant.
Finally, don’t forget to consider that red is a head turning color so if you don’t like being the center of attention, perhaps you should choose a more common color. Here are the best red hair color ideas:
Bright Copper Color
Copper has almost as many variations as red itself. A bright copper has subtle highlights and a gloss finish to break up the color. A bright copper color works great on both medium and light skin tones. If you have a medium skin tone then leave the roots a little darker to break up the hair color. Play with the level of brightness with your copper color to match your skin tone.
Golden Red Color
Also known, as strawberry blonde it is one of the trendiest hair colors. It blends the both of both worlds: fun and bold. Again this color can work with both fair and medium skin tones. This hue can be more blonde or redder, depending on your natural hair pigments and personal choice. We absolutely adore red as the primary hair color with golden highlights throughout.
Soft Ginger Color
If you are looking for an au-natural red hair color then opt for a soft ginger. This color is best for ladies with fair skin and pink or yellow undertones. This soft color really makes skin glow and it easy to maintain.
Again, there is a lot of versatility with burgundy hair colors. Burgundy is red that has a purple or blue base color and it works best for those ladies with darker skin tones. It can make women with fair or medium skin tones look flushed. Keep your color red-blue rather than a color with purple because then you will end up with a plum color rather than red.
Light Auburn Red
Auburn is a hair color described as reddish-brown, which means it can really work with just about every skin tone, especially because it ranges from light to dark shades. Remember that auburn has to actually have shades of red but you can blend them with brunette and blond. This look is very natural but still gives your hair that extra something special.
