From bright red to red with shades of blond
Don’t be fooled by the photos of influencers with perfect red colors. We must always remember that not everything he gives to a person must necessarily give to all of us.
As an alternative to bright red, opt for a blond with copper shades, very beautiful and also very easy to obtain. We choose one of the blonde bases that best suits us and then we go to apply a beautiful henna pack with a red color.
If then you have a beautiful complexion with very light shades we recommend a shade close to copper red or, also, to brown with coppery shades: they are shades of red with the characteristic of naturalness and the value of giving sophistication and an ethereal aura to the appearance.
Those who have brown hair can opt, instead, for a red with the shade of mahogany wood , with warm and intense characteristics that are practically good on all of them.
Of particular intensity and sensuality is the shade Titian red , one of the most intensely vibrant shades, in need of assiduous attention but among the most loved by any breeder of scarlet hair.
Some tips for perfect red hair
So have a fair consideration of the shades of color of your skin and, more generally, of the style that distinguishes you.
These rules are always present by the good hair stylist: imagine, for example, a light shade of red or a blonde with coppery nuances on the crown of a woman with olive skin or, in any case, dark: museum stuff for horrors!

We never forget that the coloring of our hair has a significant influence on the look of our person, so a bright red shade will be fine if we intend to give ourselves an aggressive and strong appearance, the shades of the mahogany will be perfect if we want to give vitality to the our brown hair, while blonde hair with copper shades will be ideal for a sophisticated look.

For the rehydration of the hair, the specific mask can be purchased but you can also resort to a homemade compress with olive or almond oil inside, but also yogurt or honey.

And now let’s move on to the examples, and the images from which you have to draw your new look with red hair.
The triumph of red
It’s easy to say “ red hair “! In reality, however, what is commonly called “red” is a set of very different shades. And finding the right one for your face and hair may not be as simple as you can imagine!
One thing however seems to be quite certain. The 2019 hair trends have decreed the triumph of red, in all its facets, with a prevailing trend for the warmest and flamboyant reflections, which will certainly be able to revive the hair in all shades of this fantastic color.
Precisely for this reason we offer you a very long photogallery with 100 red hair looks.
A truly enviable gallery, which we advise you to browse and leaf through avidly, considering that it is a useful starting point to revive your look, and make it even more successful (and convincing!).
You can opt for less warm shades of red. These are cold shades , which come close to brown, and which can really be ideal for trying to combine the hair with a clear complexion and with blue or green eyes.
If you want to try something warmer , for example, you can opt for a beautiful copper color. Generally the copper tone is achieved by creating special reflections on a colder hair, thus trying to enhance the tufts and exposures to particular lighting conditions.
It is a color that is very close to the desires of those who have a very light complexion, and want – precisely through this shade – to highlight their beauty.
Women who want to be more flashy and spirited can instead opt for a fire tone.
In this case, the cold colors and shades that we have had the opportunity to experiment with alternate fortunes in the last hypotheses, to embrace a more fiery look, definitely move away.
Excellent for women who have a light complexion, and for those who have not too crystalline colors.
The tone Titian red is also highly recommended. In this case we are talking about a fairly warm complexion, less aggressive than the fire color, but always rather flashy, with clear references to the darker shades of orange.
It could be an idea to combine the basic color with more or less dark reflections and tufts, thus making your look more and more lively and effective!
By continuing to browse the photogallery you will also encounter another shade that could be the most popular: the carrot color.
It is a very light color, which could also suit women with brown and dark eyes. Also in this case, however, we recommend pairing with a complexion that is basically very clear!
From the fire color we can also change to a flaming color, even more incisive.
Our style advice is to combine it with a lively and moving hair : in this case you will certainly be able to show an explosive look, particularly personal and customizable. Excellent if combined with very light complexions, and with crystalline colors in the eyes (light blue, green).
Continuing to browse the photogallery, you will certainly encounter mahogany red , one of the shades we prefer! Even hair with mahogany reflections can well adapt to people who are approaching red hair for the first time, starting from much darker shades. It is a particularly elegant look , to show off alternately with wavy or straight hair. The effect will be assured!
Of course, we leave it up to you to choose the color that best suits your needs. For example, you will find excellent bright red hair, which we recommend to combine with very smooth or slightly lively hair, or the dynamic Irish red, which you will take care of and customize with the right reflections, and which seems to be able to give its best on light skin tones and green eyes.
From more or less sophisticated shades, passing through the simpler ones, you will realize that in reality the “red” hides a particularly varied world, which you will be able to customize according to your preferences and your characteristics of style and fashion.
So what to do? The first step is certainly to browse the photogallery that we have presented to you. Try to understand if that particular color is actually right for you, and if that shade can match correctly with the color of your complexion and your eyes.
Having done this, go to your hairdresser with all the confidence you have, and talk about it openly. It is likely that the hairdresser – in addition to providing you with professional advice – can also try to tickle your curiosity by offering you alternative looks, which you may not even have had the opportunity to evaluate.
Red hair, to be treated with care
If you have just decided to switch to red hair, you are probably wondering how long your hue will last.
Unfortunately it must be remembered that once the tint has been made, the red color will be extremely sensitive, and with each wash it will tend, inexorably and gradually, to fade and deteriorate.
In short, try to ask your friends who already have red hair: with each wash and with each prolonged exposure, the colors will gradually fade, due to the pheomelanin of which the hair is composed, which will degrade much faster in the presence of ultra violet rays.
Therefore, red hair will require special treatments, and the usual programs for hair care will therefore not be sufficient.
To keep the red color particularly bright , you will have to work a little harder. But how do you do it?
The councils in this regard are numerous. We can for example remember the great caution that you should put in the periods following the dyeing of red hair. For at least two weeks it would be advisable to avoid swimming, and especially those in the pool: the chlorine contained in the water could in fact harm the color red.
Secondly, it is good to share with your trusted hairdresser the opportunity to do some healthy shopping for suitable products for your red hair .
Unfortunately, a little criticism must be made in this area: although there are dozens of products suitable for brown and blonde hair on the market, it is rather difficult to find products specifically for red hair.
Despite this, you can still obtain satisfactory results by using general hair care products: share this impression with your hairdresser, and get advice on the product that suits you best. The important thing is that the product is not aggressive, but that it is – on the other hand – capable of providing important quantities of protective and nourishing agents, such as antioxidants.
In this context, a natural product particularly suitable for red hair is l ‘henna . It is a natural tint, the results of which are really very interesting if you are trying to understand how to increase the brilliance of your color: try it to believe it!
Finally we come to the latest style tips. First of all, as soon as you notice that your red color is fading, try to evaluate together with an expert professional the possibility of reviving it with a specific product, which is suitable for your gradation. In this way, and with very advantageous economic conditions compared to the final result, you will be able to maintain the color brilliance much longer than usual.
Finally, ask for a specific treatment that can help you keep active the red pigments and, therefore, to preserve the brightness of your color . These are products that can go deeper into the hair structure, allowing the previously mentioned pigments to produce their effects longer.
Red hair, will they really look good on our face?
The red color – in all its nuances – represents a color of enviable appeal, but difficult to wear by all women. Often, it turns out that choosing a red isn’t exactly the best only after you’ve already applied the tint.
If on the sidelines of this introduction you are discouraged, do not worry: we are here to try to come to the rescue of the main questions about red hair color. Explaining, for example, that red hair is not always suitable for those with very fair complexion skin, who instead should quickly move away from the temptation to adopt copper, mahogany or other shades of red.
Better, for porcelain-colored leathers, to play on shades in order to give light to one’s hair, and avoid a dull and opaque effect that would run the risk of flattening the whole figure.
Those who have well-amber skin can opt for a warm natural red, marrying copper or bronze reflections (or, why not, rust). If your base is brown, it will be fine to lighten the hair with a caramel color, which also in 2019 should give ample satisfaction to those who choose red.
Finally, a quick mention of the many Mediterranean women who read our site, and who have an olive complexion. The olive complexion often combines with dark brown natural hair, and therefore it would be advisable to try to avoid reddish shades, instead proceeding to adopt strong shades such as Titian red, another of the must-haves of this season.
