These New Redhead Celebrities Prove the Hair-Color Trend Looks Hot on Everyone

Red hair has long been synonymous with fall beauty trends, but celebrities are switching things up this year and making a case for going red in the summer. It makes sense if you think about it: the color red is daring, hot, and exciting, which sums up summer beauty nicely.

Dua Lipa, Ciara, Emma Chamberlain, Gigi Hadid, and Ashley Benson — who confessed via Instagram that she's "always wanted to be a redhead" — are just a few of the celebrities who decided to turn up the heat this season and dye their hair red. Halle Bailey, Charlize Theron, and Chloe Bennet are also new members of the red-hair club after dyeing their hair for upcoming movie roles.

The hair color picked up steam after Netflix's hit miniseries The Queen's Gambit aired at the end of 2020. Since then, we've seen many iterations of the fiery hue pop up on our Instagram feeds, from code red to rust and tiger daylily.

Lipa went for a bright tiger-daylily hue for her latest Versace campaign, while Ciara went for a deeper rust red, proving there's a shade of red that looks stunning on everyone. Ahead, see all of our favorite celebrities' red-hair-color transformations this year so far.

Charlize Theron's red hair, which we saw for the first time on May 19, may be for her role as Lady Lesso in Netflix's film The School For Good and Evil, but we hope the fiery shade stays long after they wrap on filming.

In May, Emma Chamberlain showed us how to go red in a subtle way when she gave her brown hair a red tint.
