Womens Hairstyle Tips for Red Hair

Cupid's arrow just flew again, and if he's got you seeing red, it might be time to change up your hair color and light up your life with some heart-inspired hues.  Red hair is fun, and it can show your personality in a whole new light.  

Here are some tips for making red hair glow with radiance:

  • A Range Like the Rainbow.  There was a time when red hair essentially came in one single tone.  Nowadays, you've got an entire rainbow of shades in the red range.  Don't be put off by the idea of red because of ideas you have in your head; strawberry shades or changes with hints of cherry might suit your complexion and skin color better than the regular ravishing red.  If you are not sure what hue would look best on you, make an appointment to come in and see one of our stylists.  Sometimes an unbiased view is just what you need to find your perfect hue.
  • Little Bits Can Go a Long Way.  You can make a big statement with a few minor adjustments to your current look.  Experiment with red hair by adding some simple streaks or strategically placed highlights.  By adding small amounts of color to your hair, you can get a feel for what red hair looks like on you without going too bold too quickly.  Streaks and highlights are also easy to change up, so you can explore a multitude of hues, and if you land on one that you love, you can increase its coverage.
  • Tempt Yourself with Temporary Tints.  Permanent color is an excellent choice once you've settled on your selected shade, but until you get to that point, consider tinting your tresses with temporary color.  Temporary colors can last for a few days up to a few weeks, so be honest with your stylist about your fears and reservations.  Our team will match the right temporary color to your needs, based on how ready you are to commit to something new.  If you're just looking to make a big statement for a small amount of time, temporary colors are the perfect way to go.
  • Be Advised about the Box.  Sure, you can find a huge range of reds in boxes at the grocery store, but be advised that creating red hair tends to take the technique of a trained professional.  If you pick up a box of red hair coloring, you might find yourself with hair that more closely resembles orange than copper.  When you're considering a color change, whether it's drastic or subtle, it's always best to sit in the seat of a professional so you can make sure that your tresses turn out as planned.
