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.

Style Suggestions for An Autumn Palette including Hair Color, Clothing and Makeup.

When you think of autumn, what do you think of?  If you're like most people, the first thing that comes to mind is a color scheme that's rich and vibrant with tones of gold and warm shades of red and auburn as the leaves change color and paint a beautiful landscape everywhere you look.

At Shaggin Salon, we love autumn, and if you're a natural autumn when it comes to your skin and hair tones, we can help you enhance your already warm and radiant glow.  The colors that make up the fall season translate perfectly into hair coloring, makeup, and clothes.

  • Hair Coloring.   If you're an autumn, you showcase natural warm, rich shades.  For hair coloring, deep, dark auburn and red hair can make a real statement and completely transform your look without going over the top.  A lot of people are afraid to try red shades, but they can truly be a beautifully transforming experience to your look!  When you look around at the fall leaves, your eyes might be drawn to the rich golds.  If that's the case, your body might be trying to tell you that it's time to use some of those gold tones in your hair coloring.  If you're not completely up for going all blonde, many natural hair colors accompany gold-toned highlights gorgeously.  Highlights and low-lights can really bring out your features and warm up your skin tone instantly, since, as an autumn, you already showcase brilliant golds and a natural, earthy beauty.
  • Makeup.   When it comes to coloring that pretty face of yours, stick with the earthy, natural theme.  Browns and taupes are always great neutrals, but when you do it right in your own autumn tone, you'll really show off  your seasonal glow.  You may have a more exotic look, with olive skin, dark eyes, and dark hair, or you could have a warm pink tone to your skin.  Both are types of the autumn palette, they're just different kinds of autumn.  As a fall time gal, you can use an array of pinks and browns to show off your glow.  You also have a really great weapon in your makeup bag: gold!  With your hair coloring and skin tone, you can pull off gold hues on your eyes and skin perfectly.
  • Clothing.   Your built-in beauty gives you the gift of being able to wear a ton of different colors.  It's hard to find colors that don't look right on you when it comes to your wardrobe.  Vibrant reds, deep greens, and gold hues make an amazing compliment to your radiant skin and hair. Of course, earthy chocolates, chestnuts, and other natural hues will look great on you, too.

Autumns are bold but warm with deep, and rich tones.  The many hues of hair coloring can help you make a big drastic new statement or give you just a slight seasonal update.  Accompanying earthy makeup will continue building your beautiful new look and ensuring that you're glowing and radiant.  And, of course, a few classic clothing pieces can give a nod to trends while helping you work with what you already have to maximize your wardrobe.
