Red hair colors will always have a warm place in my heart. I stuck to red and burgundy hair colors for years, so I’m really excited to give you all some suggestions about them! I’ll have some all hair colors and tricks coming up, as well as 100 different inspiration pictures for different red hair color ideas, from auburn to copper to cherry to deep burgundy hair shades with highlights.
Contrary to popular belief, red hair is actually extremely versatile. Some of the more natural iterations of it include copper and auburn hair colors, while you can also get really out there with neon, cherry, or fire engine red hair colors! The choices are nearly limitless, especially once you start including ombre, highlights, and balayage options. So How Do You Pick Your Shade of Red Hair? Start off by considering what kind of effect you want your red hairstyle to have: are you hoping for something more natural, or really out there?
For the latter, you definitely want to stick to subtle shades of auburn, aubergine, and mahogany, although you can also play with brighter red streaks. Red Hair Color According to Skin Tone Next, take into account your skin tone. I don’t want to proscribe these red hair color ideas based on dark and light, because I think dark skin can rock bright orange hair with no problem, and even the most fair skinned gal can look smolderingly mysterious with dark burgundy hair colors. However, generally, the bigger the difference in darkness between the hair and the skin, the more it’ll stand out. It’s up to you to decide how ready you are to stand out. Undertones in the skin are a different story, though. Neutral skin tones that don’t have too much yellow or pink undertones can wear almost any red hair color without any fear or concern.
If your skin is more yellow or olive toned, neutral and warm shades of red are the way to go. You are looking at orange, copper, apple red, and warm burgundies. The purple shades of red, like magenta and aubergine, will bring out the yellow undertones in your skin in an unflattering way. If you find yourself really in love with cool, purple-y red hairstyles, you can still incorporate a touch of cool color through a balayage over a warmer shade of red. Just make sure that the predominant color around your face won’t make you look sallow, or overly yellow.
For cool toned skin, red hair colors make a lot of sense! Think of cool, alabaster Irish skin paired with bright, orange tresses. However, if you’re not trying to pass for a highlander, sticking to cooler shades of red is safer. Blue-toned apple red, mahogany, cool burgundy, and most auburn hair colors will look incredible on you, without making your skin look too flushed.
