Loose Coils with Copper-Red Hue
Red hair looks beautiful when worn in loose coils. Take inspiration from “Riverdale” actress Madelaine Petsch to achieve this look using a copper-red hue that complements ivory skin tones and rosy complexions.
Soft Auburn to Copper Ombre
Soft copper red ombre is an exquisite way to show your non-red hue without going full red. This warm combination of brown and red colors catches the sun beautifully for a shimmering glow. Ask your stylist for a dark brown base shade blended with metallic copper hues to achieve this trending style. Style it in long, wavy layers for a seductive appearance, and maintain it with color-safe shampoo and conditioner.
Strawberry Blonde with Scarlet and Coral Highlights
If you need more time to decide whether to commit to an all-over red hair color, try strawberry blonde with touches of scarlet and coral. This two-toned shade looks gorgeous against warmer skin tones and works with various hairstyles. Visit your colorist every 4-6 weeks for root touchups to keep this look fresh.
Platinum to Red Ombre
Blondes who want a change without total commitment can opt for an ombre hairstyle featuring platinum blonde roots transitioning to fiery red shades. This eye-catching look is perfect for winter and Valentine’s Day events. Consider adding beachy waves for a softer contrast and dimensional appeal.
Try a fire ombre with warm honey-golden tones on the ends for an approachable style with natural-looking results. This look, illustrated by actress Isis King, starts with light copper tones and gradually transitions to deeper hues. Use color-safe shampoos to prevent dulling effects and maintain the fiery hue.
Red Blonde to Red
Add flare and a pop of color into dark brown strands with a deep copper-to-red ombre. This easy yet eye-catching trend works well on chin-length bobs or shaggy pixie cuts. Smudge dark blonde roots with an orange tone for a sophisticated look.
Light Auburn with Rosy Tips
For a subtle color transformation, try light auburn with rosy tips. This is perfect for anyone wanting a gradual change. Pair this slight hue with voluminous curls and side-swept bangs for a sweet and flirty style. These rosy-red balayage highlights also enhance natural Afro-textured curls.
