Find out which is the best red hair color for you with these tips and ideas.
The red hair color trend is showing no sign of slowing down, so if you want to try your hand at a red hue but don't know where to start, check out these great color options and our guide to which red hair color is the right pick for you!
Light Red Hair Colors
There's no color quite like a light red or copper color, and if you've ever seen someone rockin' a shade like any of the ones pictured here, I'm sure you didn't forget them in a hurry.
Who it suits: natural blondes and those with pale skin tones will be able to wear this color well. Natural redheads can also enhance their own great tone with a copper-esque shade. Those with blue eyes will also get a nice contrast with such an orange-tinged shade.
Bright Red Hair Colors
A bright red hair color is perfect for those not afraid to wear a daring, look-at-me shade.
Who it suits: those with a medium to dark hair color and medium skin tone. Those with light hair can of course try a bright tone if they want, but be prepared for a really, really bright result! If you've got a cool skin tone, dark hair and light eyes then a bright hair color will complement all of your features.
Dark Red Hair Colors
Dark red hair colors are the types of reds that cross over into violet shades or look so dark that you may need to step into the sunlight to catch a glimpse of red.
Who it suits: dark red shades are a great option for natural redheads who want to update their shade to something with more depth and hair shine. Brunettes will also get a great boost from introducing this color to their locks. Those with blonde hair can get away with it as a nice contrasting highlight color. And if you've got olive skin then you will look great with a nice shade of dark red.
