Red color has long become a classic in the palette of lipsticks and nail polishes. But he seems to be expanding his horizons. Red hair is a trend that is gaining popularity. Who and why should pay attention to it?

Red hair color: pros and cons

Everyone knows that red hair does not occur in nature. There is fiery red, bright copper comes across, but the scarlet color is definitely not included in the palette of natural tones. That is why it is valuable - after all, by choosing a bright red hair color, you bring the chances of meeting a girl “with the same” shade to zero.

We think that Katy Perry, Lily Collins and Rihanna once fell for this bait, having dyed their hair in the least common color.

By the way, rarity and uncompromising brightness are not the only advantages of this shade. Stylists note that he:

  • "friendly" with any natural shade of hair, from black to red;

  • does not require pre-lightening hair if their original color is dark;

  • Allows you to get a fiery red hair color even with temporary dyes due to the intensity of the pigment.

Of course, like any other coloring, changing the color to red has its negative sides, but you can prepare for them and avoid disappointments. First of all, the minuses include:

  • the need to regularly renew the color - red hair looks extremely unattractive when the paint is "washed off" ;

  • necessity to choose clothes in laconic colors;

  • the ability of this shade to emphasize redness and inflammation on the skin.

By the way, how to hide imperfections on the skin, we showed in this video:

Red hair color: who will suit?

Red hair gets hundreds of likes, but who does it suit? The question remains burning. Unlimited access to such coloring, according to colorists, is provided to girls with red hair. In second place are the owners of the “winter” and “autumn” color types. If you belong to the categories described above, you can safely choose almost any shade of ruby \u200b\u200bthat you like.

But is that really all who suit red hair? Not at all!

There is a right shade of red for everyone. In short, the rules are as follows: fair-skinned people look towards light red tones, dark-skinned women pay attention to shades darker.

Girls with green and gray eyes can afford red-copper shades. The appearance of brown-eyed people is successfully emphasized by cherry and wine colors, and blue-eyed ones are garnet and dark red.

And if you're wondering what color type you can relate to, take our simple test:

Trendy red hair color ideas

Color, of course, decides a lot, but a lot also depends on styling. Consider in the photo how the red hair color looks depending on the length of the curls.

Short hair

Red shades of hair look modern in short haircuts with clear lines.

At the same time, the effect of tousled hair is best avoided - styling should be neat.

Medium length hair

Arm yourself with a round brush, styling product and patience: with medium length hair, stylists recommend keeping volume at the roots.

In addition, it is better to style curls not with tongs and curling irons, but to do it using the brushing technique - the effect of expensive styling is almost guaranteed.

Long hair

Curls and waves created with a large-diameter curling iron are a win-win choice. It's a beauty crime not to style long red hair this way at least once.

And if they are also painted using the balayage technique, we recommend that you only walk like this!
