Pssst… red and copper hair is the next big thing
Red hair’s bang on trend

Variations of red are the latest hair colour trend. If it’s good enough for the models Gigi and Bella Hadid, it’s good enough for the rest of us. According to an article on Vogue’s website, fashion month was marked by the Hadid sisters stealing the runway show with their bright ginger and burgundy finish hair respectively. Now it’s tipped to be this season’s hottest colour.

The beginning of a new season is often typified by experimentation with our appearance, whether it’s a shopping spree for new clothes and shoes or trip to the hairdressing salon to try out a new style and colour. After the year we’ve just lived through, it’s hardly surprising that some individuals are heading to the salon for a dramatic hair change. (Read our ‘Post-lockdown hair trends’ blog on this subject.)

Keen to adopt this latest red-hue hair craze? Before you book your colouring appointment, read our advice so that your dye’s just right…

Take small steps

In the essence of not running before you can walk, begin with small sections of hair or streaks of colour only. This could be to the sides or underneath; or highlights throughout. Once you’re happy with the colour, go for a full head.

Pick your tone

Never mind 50 Shades of Grey, there are so many shades of red, it’s important to select the correct tone. From orange to ginger to red to purple, think about what will work best for your skin colouring, style and time of year. You could even mix it up and use variations of the same shade for a multi-colour highlights effect.

Consider your natural hair

Your hair’s texture and original colour determines how well the new dye will take hold. People with dark hair will have to bleach it before dyeing. Certain hair types (coily, for instance) bleach (and dye) well whilst others don’t. Your hairdresser will advise what is best for your hair type and colour.

Decide DIY or salon

Your decision-making process will include choosing whether to do it yourself at home with box kits or going to a hairdresser to have your hair dyed professionally. Our ‘Bad salon warning signs’ blog might prove useful here.

Maintain thereafter

Your dye will need to be touched up every six to eight weeks as a minimum. The colour is likely to fade as time passes and, obviously, your roots will start to show. A good hair care routine helps too. Check out our ‘At-home hair colour maintenance’ blog for tips on making your hair colour last for longer.
