Auburn red is a reddish-brown in color but varies from medium to dark hues. Making auburn work for you is about finding the right shade and the right haircut. We love a medium-length cut for this stunning color.
There is an auburn color out there for everyone, but make sure that the shade you choose has enough warmth, or enough cool undertones to compliment your skin tone. Also, your hair cut should compliment your face shape before you worry about making your brown and red highlights pop with waves and layers. Here are some of our favorite mid-length auburn hairstyles.
Layered Asymmetrical Side-Swept Cut
You have a bold color so why not pair it with a bold haircut too? An asymmetrical long bob gives you length for styling and for layers. So layer up this cut all the way to your side-swept bangs and allow this cut and dark red color to frame your face and draw out your eye color and cheekbones.
Loose Curls with Shoulder Grazing Cut
If you’ve got the time to style your hair in loose curls (or you could do overnight curls) then it’s the perfect hairstyle for auburn. The red and brown together create a dynamic look but when you add the body of curls, you’ve got a hairstyle full of body and dimension.
Light Auburn with Side-Swept Bangs
It’s always good to have a light color around your face. It softens your look and really brings out the colors in your eyes. If you have (or want) a light auburn shade then adding some side-swept bangs can really enhance your entire look!
Bardot Bangs with Shoulder Length Auburn Hair
Bangs are more about your face shape than your hair color but Bardot bangs look particularly great with lighter hair colors because they are face framing. Long bangs, parted in the middle are perfect for longer face shapes or an oval face shape. If you have a round face-shape, be cautious of this look!
Thick Blunt Medium Bob with Center Part
If you have thick hair then you probably don’t need, although you probably have, a lot of texture. Thick hair is full of body all on its own. A blunt bob looks great with thick hair, especially if it’s styled straight. Part it down the middle for a sophisticated look that never goes out of style.
