How to Color Your Hair Red

3 Simple Tips For Getting the Most Natural-Looking Red

Red is just one of those colors that can either look absolutely stunning or absolutely wash you out. The key, as you might expect, is to pick the right undertones for your complexion. But since a natural-looking red is such a tricky color to get right, "You really have to go to a professional for this," explains celebrity colorist (and Jennifer Aniston and Heidi Klum's go-to guy) Michael Canale. To see his top tips for achieving a more organic version of the warm hue, just keep reading.

  1. Darling, don't go to extremes: Canale's hair philosophy is to create natural tones that simply enhance what you already have. And therefore, "If I were going to do a red," Canale explains, "I'd do a reddish-brown."
  2. Back to life: To add dimension, warmth, and movement, Canale recommends next placing golden highlights within the style.
  3. Shine, shine: "Then I'd do a warm overlay . . . a warm gloss," he says. Not only will the gloss lock the color in longer, but it also will provide plenty of radiance to the look. And radiance is what it's all about, after all.

Henna. As long as it doesn't have any metallic salts in it, you'll be fine. Just do your research, and you will end up with the most beautiful red. It stays shiny forever, and it actually acts as a deep conditioner, too. I constantly get compliments on my hair color, and nobody believes that it isn't natural.
