Red Hairstyles-Marcia Cross

Red Hairstyles Riveting this Spring!

“Red Hairstyles Get Noticed”Red hairstyles have a whole lot of color shades going on in spring 2010!! The shades and hues of this seasons red hairstyles are not for the timid. If you want to turn some heads with a hair colour that WOW’s em’ this summer, think RED!!

Natural redheads have milky light complexions usually with a speckling of freckles, think Queen Elizabeth 1 of England, or Marcia Cross. But there is a red hair shade that will work for just about everyone. Red hairstyles do need a bit more TLC however so here are a few pointers.

  • Condition – condition, condition, condition! Make sure your hair in it’s best condition to hold and reflect the best red hair colour. Red hair colour tends to slip out of the hair quickly especially when dry and damaged.


  • Shampoo less often – shampoo less often, in tepid, not hot water with a colour shampoo like, Redken Color Extend Shampoo


  • Use a colour booster between coloring – Ask your colourist for some ‘color-to-go’ that you can apply between appointments. Or, try an at home colour glaze like, John Frieda Luminous Color Glaze. This adds a hint of hair colour and shine and can be used in the shower.

Who can wear this red hairstyle?

Red hairstyles like Marcia’s fiery locks, can be worn by almost everyone. Olive complexions should stay away from this shade of red. This red hair color shade has splashes of gold and strawberry to give depth. Get this colour from your professional hair colourist. Most hair will need to be lightened and then toned to the right depth for you.

Who can wear this red hairstyle?

Red hairstyles like Lindsay Lohan’s are apt to suit a wider variety of skin tones than any other shade of red. Auburn is a sort of brownish red with varying depths of either colour. But again the red will tend to fade, so keep hair in top condition to look it’s best.

Burgundy Red Hairstyles

Who can wear burgundy red hairstyles?

People with golden skin tones should stay away from burgundy red hairstyles. For others, keep in mind this hair colour will make a statement and can look punky or have a splash of sophistication to it. Burgundy has a depth of a deep brunette with bright wine high lights.

Red Hairstyles-Hayley Williams

Who can wear bold red hairstyles?

Red hairstyles like Hayle William’s should ONLY be worn by the young and the brave . . . but even there I would beg to give caution. But, hey it’s 2010 and this generations reds make a statement all their own! Bold red hairstyles like this one verge on being orange or pink and really should have an emo scene hairstyle to bring out it’s moxie!

Are You a Hot Redhead at Heart?

Take the Hot Redhead Quiz

If at least two of the following apply to you, it may be right to go red-haired:

  • You Can Be a Hot Redhead if~~Your skin is on the pink side, There is a “right” red out there for most women, says Jennifer J, a Matrix celebrity hair colorist and owner of Juan Juan Salons in Southern California (she colors Julia Roberts’s auburn red hair), but women with cool or pinkish skin pull it off best. Conversely, women with golden or olive skin have a tougher time finding a red hair tone that’s flattering.


“The Hot
Redhead Look”

  • You Can Be a Hot Redhead if~~You’re no wallflower, Redhead is a head-turning hue, and you have to be self-assured enough to accept the stares, says Tasha Forgash. red hair color specialist at Shag Salon in Boston. Hair colorist Sarah Gold, the guru behind Lindsay Lohan’s formerly flame red colored hair, concurs: “Remember red hair is like a sequined dress—it walks into the room before you do.”


  • You Can Be a Hot Redhead if~~Your hair is in fairly good condition. If your hair is very dry or damaged, the strands will have a hard time holding on to small, red hair color molecules (which seep out of even the healthiest hair fairly quickly). Your mane has a better chance of becoming radiant redhead if it is well cared-for (read: you deep-condition weekly, get regular trims and don’t heat-style every day).



How to be the best hot redhead:

  1. Hot Redhead Tip~~Wash your hair as infrequently as possible, Ideally this would mean twice a week, says Parvine Klein, a red hair colorist at the John Barrett Salon in New York City, but every other day will suffice if your hair is oily or very fine, says Jennifer J. On alternate days, you can rinse your hair with tepid (never hot) water if necessary or dust your roots with a dry shampoo.


  1. Hot Redhead Tip~~Avoid harsh shampoos. Most dandruff treatments are tough on colored red hair says Jennifer J. But they are death to hot redhead, accelerating the fading process by weeks.


  1. Hot Redhead Tip~~Ask your hair colorist for a “to-go” kit, Jennifer J gives her redheaded clients a small vial of their hair color (at $45 a pop) to apply two weeks after their hair salon visit. This keeps the red hair color looking bright and fiery all month-long. (Tip: If you can’t get a to-go kit, using one of Nice ‘n Easy’s new Color Boosting Glazes can also do the trick.)


  1. Hot Redhead Tip~~Cover up. Red hair color oxidizes faster than any other says Forgash. So, if you’re going to spend a lot of time outdoors, use a styling product that contains UV filters, or throw a hat or scarf over your red hair.


  1. Hot Redhead Tip~~Don’t be tempted by eggplant tones. Purplish-reds don’t look natural and are rarely flattering, says Jennifer J. Choose a red hair color that can be described as “coppery,” “auburn” or “strawberry” instead.
