How To Rock A Red Hair the Right Way

If you feel like your hair is lifeless and you’re beginning to get bored with the same old shade you’ve been having for years, then we think it’s the perfect time to shift to rocking bright red hair. Or perhaps go for a ark red hair. But how does one pull it off?

Experts say that you choose from strawberry blonde, copper (an orange-red), true red, and auburn (dark reddish-brown) but that still depends on your mood and your liking.

Before you visit your hairdresser, you may show them your desired fiery hues so they can also suggest which one would look on you too. And just so you know, red locks will look awesome whether you have short, long, curly, or straight hair.

Umbrella hitmaker Rihanna surely doesn’t need an umbrella to hide that hair because it’s a sure head-turner. This type of hair color will match whatever your skin tone is. It will also look good if you’ll add huge curls for some volume and drama. To do the hairstyle, use the Platinum 2-in-1 Styler Hair Iron , and achieve different hairstyles from straight, wavy, and curly hair!

Let’s not forget that Rihanna also styled her hair in different ways. She did straight, short hair with side swept bangs , in a bun, and crimson curls.

Two makeup tips that matches your red hair

Wear nude make-ups

If you have a strong and fiery red locks, go for lighter and fresher make-up. Remember that your red hair is best enhanced with subtle make-up.

Avoid red lipstick

If you have a lighter and dark red hair, you can try adding highlights on your eyes by putting winged eyeliner – but avoid using a red lipstick as much as possible.

Outfit tips

Try wearing blue dresses or tops as this could make your red hair pop any time of the day. You can also try wearing white to show off your hair’s vibrant color. Add a shoulder-grazing earring to add a touch of glam if you have short hair, a pixie cut to be specific. For accessorizing, avoid wearing silver jewelry. Choose gold and bronze instead so it won’t look dull when you wear it.
