How To Pick The Right Red!

Subtlety and restraint are key when transitioning to red. “Stay within two levels of your current color to ensure beautiful, natural results,” says Van Gogh. Look at photos of redheads and “decide whether you are looking for warm tones such as red and gold or cool tones like merlot and wine red hues,” she says. “Choosing hair color should be more about your color preferences and less about matching it to your complexion.” However, “if you have extremely pink or olive-yellow skin, red can be tough,” says Van Gogh. We say go to a pro who can perfectly match a shade for you or don’t go red right now.

If you can’t picture yourself with a whole head of red, ask your stylist for a few warm highlights (for added brightness) or lowlights (for added darkness). Think Kristen Stewart’s barely-there auburn streaks in the Twilight movies.
