Mandy Moore Joins The Red Team! Do You Think Red Is In Or Out? Vote!

Mandy has gone copper red! Which celebrities have played with this fiery shade the best!

Mandy Moore, 27, showed off her new red hair at the animal health-care awareness program launch at ASPCA headquarters on April 20 in NYC. She took a more natural approach to red hair color, but some celebrities are trying very unnatural hues. Do you think this is a hot trend — or just too much?

Jason Backe, celebrity hair colorist at Ted Gibson salon in NYC, thinks this super bold red hair trend is amazing! “I think any time anyone wants to push the envelope a bit is a beautiful thing.”

When looking at girls like Rihanna on the cover of Vogue, we look enviously but most of us won’t go with the trend. “Not every trend is going to translate to every person,” Jason says, suggesting that you put in a couple of highlights, which can make the trend for you.

Mandy, a natural blonde, played it safe with a fun copper red. But she still had to dye her eyebrows to make her hair look natural. It brightened up her green eyes, but does it still look unusually red?

Jason says dying the eyebrows makes an unnatural color look more believable. However, he warns against matching your brows exactly with your hair color: “You don’t want them to be exactly the same because that looks unnatural and weird.”

What do you think of Mandy’s red hair? Tell us!
