Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

This beautiful copper color best enhances complexions that have warm undertones with or without freckles. Ask for long layers and a jaw-length side-swept fringe. Styling is easiest on naturally straight hair. Round brush the hair while blowing dry and work in horizontal sections beginning from the nape of the neck to the crown of the head. For the flirty flip on the bottom, place hair under the brush as you blow dry style or use a flat iron to flip the ends up. Remember to use heat-setting spray first to protect hair from heat and lock in your style.


This copper makes warm green eyes pop and looks best when accented by makeup with natural browns and ivories, and even pastel yellows or soft gold tones.

Crimson Collage

Bright red highlights play off a deep, cool red for the best of both worlds.

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Bold, cool red looks best on pale skin and those with pink undertones. A full fringe works best on naturally straight hair. If you have wavy hair and are digging this look, use a flat iron or blow dryer and large round brush to gently smooth your fringe into place.


The fringe length for this look should fall at or just below your brows.

Vanilla and Spice

Subtle red compliments soft blonde for those who want a hint of blonde but without the full commitment.

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Let ringlets rule with this soft red and blonde dimensional style! This look work best on medium to fine and naturally straight or curly hair. If you have naturally straight hair, you’ll want to spray heat setting spray throughout before winding curls around a 1-1/4 inch barrel iron to create these beautiful bouncy curls! Intense copper lowlights perfectly contrast beige blonde for a gorgeous balance of warm and cool tones.


After hair is curled, gently tousle hair with fingertips for a natural look and finish with a bit of lightweight pomade like OSiS Aqua Slide.

Red Rebel

Red gets a punch of blonde to keep things fresh!

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

This vibrant red looks great against pale skin tones or those who have a soft dark olive tone. The color and style rock on naturally thick hair but can also work for those who have fine hair, but style it with lots of volume. Keep the blonde slice a soft, neutral hue so the colors go well together. Platinum blonde would also be a great option, though that level is difficult to achieve on some hair types.


When choosing the perfect red color, be sure to hold a hair strand swatch against your forehead or the side of your face under natural light to get the best idea of which color best complements you.

Chocolate Curry

This red is made of chocolate and spice and everything nice!

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

This spicy chocolate hue is gorgeous on those with thick hair who have a medium complexion. The great news is your eye color does not matter! This color complements any eye color, from deep browns to light blues or even hazel! Those with finer hair should choose a version that is a bit lighter.


For a perfect side-swept fringe, blow dry your fringe straight forward with a large round brush then gently sweep to one side.

Vibrant Vixen

This hair color is worn best by those with the attitude to rock it. This vibrant red hue will have everyone’s heads turning for a second look!

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Medium neutral or tan/olive complexions are best for this color. Pale skin can rock this look so long as the hue is cool enough in tone. Medium to thick hair texture works perfectly for this style!


Brows should be colored to match your red hue. Mix a bit of brown with your chosen hair color so your brows don’t turn out too bright.

Copper Kisses

Rich, deep copper accented by lighter copper highlights in the crown is great for brightening any complexion.

Medium Reddish Brown Red Hair with Fringe

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

This red hair color is best suited for those with pale skin tones. This particular color combo also works well with medium neutral complexions who want a lighter color, but like to keep their hair darker around the face.


Use a flat iron to angle front layers in toward your face and finish with a light hold hairspray like Paul Mitchell Extra Clean Light.

Sunset Beauty

Rich, copper tones reminiscent of a sunset look fantastic for summer!

Red Sunset Beauty Pale Flowing Style

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

This color beautifully complements those with warm pale skin and light eyes. Green eyes will especially pop when paired with this hair color! This color can be worn on any hair texture; just remember that the healthier your hair is, the better the color will look.


You can use either a 1 inch or 1-1/4 inch barrel iron to create these stunning curls! The larger the barrel, the larger the resulting curl.

Red Velvet Riches

A gorgeous, cool red brown beautifully enhances cooler complexions!

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Pair this rich red brown with your medium toned cool complexion to enhance the color of your skin. When blondes go red, this is one of those colors that often helps to brighten up and give more color to the face. This look is created with long, thick, straight hair, but those with curly hair can rock this hue too!


To get an idea of what tones (cool or warm) would look nice in your hair, take a hint from your closet! Do you wear a lot of blue and purple? You probably have a cool complexion. Warmer complexioned people tend to like reds, oranges and yellows in their wardrobes.

Midnight Melody

The deepest red brown sets a seductive tone for those with pale skin.

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Pale skin with neutral or slightly warm tones looks best in this color. Dark brown is a perfect eye color because the brown matches and plays off the undertones of the hair. Medium and long lengths are best with this color because the length softens the contrast between dark hair and light skin. Those with shorter hair should keep in mind that this color would lend itself toward more of an edgy feel.


Keep your hair parted to the side or rock a full fringe with this color! Stay away from a middle part.

Cherry Cola

Rich, shiny, cool red is the perfect match for warm medium to dark complexions!

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Dare to be bold in this gorgeous cherry cola red. This color is absolutely amazing paired with deep, warm skin tones and light eyes! Those with curly or straight and medium to thick hair can totally rock this style.


For shine like never before, finish with a pea-sized amount of Redken Glass 01 Smoothing Serum. Put three or four drops into the palms of your hands, rub hands together briefly to warm up the product, then rake palms and fingers through hair to distribute evenly.

Strawberry Delight

Beautiful, cool, strawberry blonde makes its way to the top this season as it emulates the pastel tones showing up on fashion runways everywhere.

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

This perfect pastel red complements medium to light skin types that have neutral or warm tones. This is a balance of the gentle contrast of a cool color in the hair against a warm skin tone. If you opt for having some blonde highlights sprinkled in, be sure they’re a cool blonde tone so they don’t compete with the pastel red.


Frame your face with a cheekbone-length, side-swept fringe! Not only does it look great with this long style, but when hair is pulled back in a pony, the fringe will be the perfect flirty finish to your style.

Remember that color wheel you learned about in art class? It’s your best friend when determining which hair color will go well with your eye and skin color! Colors opposite each other on the color wheel tend to bring contrast, or make each other pop. Colors that are next to each other on the color wheel enhance themselves. As for red hair color, there are some general rules… Cool reds look great on those with light blue or cool brown eyes. Warm reds complement those with green, hazel or warm brown eyes. So never fear! Armed with all these tips, you’ll be able to choose the perfect red hue for you.
