How to Choose the Right Red Hair Color

An Expert's Tips to Getting the Right Red Hair Color

If Hollywood is any indication, red is the most coveted hair color for Spring, with Rachel McAdams and Dianna Agron among the latest celebrities to take a walk on the fiery side. Redken's Creative Consultant For Color, Tracey Cunningham, explains she's constantly getting requests for Bryce Dallas Howard's stunning red mane, too. "Redheads will welcome the Spring and Summer months with more intense, dark vibrant reds," Cunningham says.

If you're looking to go red this season, bring photo examples of the color you want to the salon, along with the colors you don't want. And be sure to mention to your colorist that you prefer golden tones, which, as Cunningham conveys, give a more natural-looking quality to the hair. Already gone red? Try ombré, then. "The trick for a redhead is to keep it golden or strawberry on the ends," she says.
