Turn Up The Heat With Vibrant Red Hair

Lack of Shine, Red, Accessories and Style,
As summer temperatures begin to cool down, treat your tresses to a touch-up. Red and auburn hues are the perfect complement to cooler nights and the lingering heat as summer transitions into fall.

1. Recharge Your Colour

Whether you're a natural redhead or not, there's no denying that red shades are hot year round—and when fall begins to roll around, there's no better time to go red or amplify your already red colour. Go for a copper or deep ruby shade, or even a red with a hint of brown in it to warm things up. Try our Precision Foam Colour Shade Selector to find the right shade for you. Be sure to stay within one to two shades lighter or darker than your current colour to ensure you achieve the flawless rich, red shade you desire.

2. Colour Care

The lingering summer sun can be your hair's biggest foe when trying to retain your fiery shade. Keep your red hair at its best by using a shampoo and conditioner designed to enhance and care for your red colour, like Radiant Red® Colour Magnifying® Daily Shampoo and Conditioner. With anti-fading agents, this powerful duo will preserve and magnify your red colour, whether it's natural, colour-treated, or highlighted.

3. Maintain Shine

Along with the sun, heat tools and frequent washings can dry and dull red hair colour, making it hard to maintain a glossy sheen. Start shining in the shower with Clear Shine Luminous Glaze. Spruce up lackluster strands and bring back shiny, lustrous red hair.

4. Finishing Touch

With your bold, beautiful red hair, makeup should complement, not overpower the main star of the show. Opt for a soft brown eyeliner (use a pencil or a powder, applied with a brush) and a sweep of mascara to make eyes sparkle. Nude and beige lip glosses look smashing paired with red hair, but be fearless and experiment with other shades to discover other lip colours that will turn up the heat this fall.
