Stepping into the World of Red Hair? Here is Your Ultimate Guide to Choosing and Flaunting that Perfect Red Shade!

When you envision Red Hair what do you see? Fire engine Red? Dark Red? Purple Red? Strawberry Blonde?

We consider Red Hair Colour the statement piece of Colouring, a Hair Colour that is so striking you can’t help but stare in admiration. But what makes the perfect Red? Big reflects or subtle tones vs bright Colouring or a moody deep Shade vs extreme pigment or a Naturalised hue?

Each Red Hair Colour Shade comes with its own mood and even though they all fall under “Red” the Hair Colours are so diverse with such different marvellous Colour pigments that suit different tastes and skin tones. So when you want to find your Red Shade, this guide has everything you need to know about the different Red Tones and which Hair Colours will fulfil your wildest Colour dreams.
