5 Stunning Red Colored Hair Ideas

/

Spring is upon us, which means it’s time to try a new and vibrant hair color. One of our favorite colors this season for hair is red, and we think you should give it a try.  

Not sure which shade of red to try? We’ll help you decide. Below are five hair color ideas for going red this season. 

1. Dark Auburn

If you are naturally a dark brunette and don’t want to bleach your hair, then a dark auburn hair color is for you. It’s an understated red that’s great for cool-toned skin and for those who want to keep a wintery look.

This cool, dark red combines medium to deep brown shades with medium to deep red shades, creating a subtle shimmer of red in your brunette tresses. A fun dark auburn hair color combination is deep chestnut brown mixed with a dark wine red. 

Want to go slightly brighter? Ask for auburn highlights instead of a single-process color. Highlights use less bleach, which means less damage to your hair.

2. Light Auburn

Do you have toffee, caramel, or honey brunette hair? Try a light auburn red hair color. This sun-kissed shade is perfect for warming up cool-toned skin in the spring and summer months. 

To get light auburn hair color, combine spicy reds like cinnamon or ginger with light brown or dark blonde hair.

3. Strawberry Blonde

If you want a very subtle red that’s almost pink or peachy, try going strawberry blonde this spring. Strawberry blonde is a mixture of blonde with either peachy red, light rose, or pale ginger, creating a very light red hair color that almost looks pink.

To choose the right type of strawberry blonde for your hair, examine your natural hair color. If you have dirty blonde hair, a light red or ginger shade will create a deep red strawberry blonde. If you have light or ashy blonde hair, adding a rose gold or peach shade will create a subtle soft strawberry color.

Those with naturally dark hair may want to skip this style, as this light color can be tough to achieve.

4. Red Balayage

For just a hint of red in your hair, rather than an all-over color, try a red balayage. It’s a beautiful, low-maintenance option that goes well with any shade of blonde or brunette.  

A red balayage is the process of painting red shades on your hair with the most saturation concentrated at your ends. If you have dark brunette hair, try a fire-red balayage to brighten it. If you have light brown hair, try a ginger or copper red balayage.

5. Copper Red

Copper red is great for spring and summer, and it will be one of the most popular hair colors this year.

Copper is a mix of both bright orange and red shades to create a beautiful, metallic copper color. The versatility of this fun and vibrant hue makes it suitable for both warm and cool-toned skin and hair.

If you have warm undertones in your skin or hair, add in more orange or peach shades. If you have cool-toned skin or ashy hair, opt-in for more red or deeper ginger shades.  

Red Hair Care Tips

Use Hair Fibers

If your color starts to fade at your roots, Toppik Hair Building Fibers in auburn can help maintain the appearance of your red hair between colorings and make your hair appear thicker. They’re made of colored keratin proteins to blend undetectably with existing hair strands, instantly creating the appearance of naturally thick, full hair.

Stay Out of the Sun

Excessive exposure to UV rays will fade your processed red hair, so cover up with a hat or avoid direct sunlight when you can. 

Use Toning Shampoo

Using a toning shampoo can help keep your red hair from fading. Look for a toner with red, copper, or orange pigments to keep your red hair color rich and beautiful. 

Don’t Shampoo Frequently 

Shampooing too often will lift the processed color out of your hair. Try to go longer between washes and invest in dry shampoos instead.

8 Receding Hairline Haircuts for Men

/

Finding the right haircut for a receding hairline can be tricky. It may feel like there is no hairstyle that can work, or you might be worried that cutting your hair will make your hairline recede even further. Don’t worry, we’ll help you out. 

We’ll tell you why haircuts don’t cause a receding hairline and give you a list of some of the best receding hairline haircuts for men. 

Can Haircuts Cause Receding Hairlines?

The short answer is no, haircuts don’t cause a hairline to recede. Cutting your hair only trims the hair strands and does not affect your follicles. Meaning, your hair will continue to grow.

However, tight hairstyles can permanently damage your hair follicles and result in a receding hairline. Try to avoid tight hairstyles like buns or ponytails when your hairline begins to recede.

8 Best Haircuts for a Receding Hairline

Clean Shave

A deliberate clean shave is a good solution for a receding hairline. If your hairline has receded considerably or you have thin hair, this is a great option. 

A clean shave can also create balance if you have facial hair.

Short High Fade Haircut

A short high fade brings attention upward and makes the hair on top of your head appear fuller. It creates a pompadour effect, which can detract from a receding hairline.

The fade is gradual, starting at the nape of your neck and continuing to your temples, keeping the length on top.

Undercut

Like the short high fade, the undercut is short on the sides and back, keeping length on top. In contrast, an undercut is one length on the sides and back rather than a gradual fade. A shorter haircut on the sides and back can give the appearance of a more prominent hairline. 

Fauxhawk

A fauxhawk adds length on top and is a good hairstyle for receding hairlines with widow’s peaks. Styling the hair on top up and forward can help conceal a widow’s peak and make your hair appear more textured. 

To get this hairstyle, cut the sides shorter than the top. Then, style the length on top straight, creating a triangular point.

Buzz Cut

Similar to the clean shave, a close buzz cut is a low-maintenance way to hide a receding hairline. By leaving some hair, it’s not as dramatic as a clean shave. This haircut can also make your jawline appear more prominent. 

Longer Haircut

It can sound counterintuitive to go for a longer haircut with a receding hairline. Won’t longer hairstyles bring attention to your hairline? Longer haircuts can help conceal a widow’s peak and hide a receding hairline.

To hide a widow’s peak, keep as much length on the top as possible and allow the hair to fall forward. Another option is to slick back your long hair. This will help make hair around your temples appear fuller.

The Regulation Cut

The regulation cut is a minimal, military-style cut that’s short on top and tapered on the sides. This cut is similar to an undercut, with the top having more length and the sides trimmed down. However, the regulation haircut is shorter on top, making it lower maintenance than an undercut. 

Comb Over

Although the comb-over has a bad reputation, it can be flattering when styled properly. If your hair is very thin on top, this style may not be the best, but it can be a great hairstyle to conceal a widow’s peak.

Focus on your hair that’s above your temples and part it all to one side. It’s a subtle style that can give volume to your hair.

The best way to make your receding hairline haircut appear fuller is by applying Hair Building Fibers to your hair. They’re made with premium, naturally derived keratin proteins that are nearly identical to human hair. 

To conceal your hairline, apply the fibers directly to your hairline using the Hairline Optimizer tool. Gently pat down the hair to disperse the fibers and finish with the FiberHold Spray.
