If you have natural red hair—whether it's a shade of copper, deep orange or auburn—it's possible for you to darken up if you fancy a new look.

Most natural redheads feel like they can't go another color because their complexions are very specific to red hair, often with pink undertones and freckles. While this may present a challenge when looking for a natural-looking darker color, it can be done! Check out these Hollywood celebs who successfully made the transition.

Ellie Kemper went from an intense medium copper hair tone to a soft chestnut brown with ease! While she was a redhead, her ivory complexion worked well with the red tones, but using an ash brown color on top reduced the brassiness of her original color and left her with a soft brown that looks fabulous with her complexion and eye color.

Emma Stone is another celeb who looks amazing after going from red to brunette. Her natural strawberry blonde hair matched her rosy, freckled complexion, but a rich deep mahogany brown looks amazing with her skin tone and eyes as well.

If you are thinking of going dark brown and you have naturally red hair, aim for a reddish-based brown shade if you have pink/cool skin. If you have warm/ivory skin, go for an ashier brown for best results.
