Code Red – How to work this season’s most fashionable hair colour

Fiery, quirky, sexy… reds know how to turn heads. From the subtlest of strawberry blonds through to rich russets and striking bolds, there is a hair shade to suit all.

Quashing the myth it’s a shade purely for paler complexions, there are countless hues and twists on hair colour classics to perfectly match and flatter every skin tone.

For the fairest of them all, think natural and aim for Auburn, ginger or copper tones to give a natural glow that complements features and creates the ultimate art nouveau goddess. Darker skins are lit up by rich stronger reds, or for style statement hair blue based brights are the way to go as seen on the irrepressible Rhianna.

Not ready to take the full-on plunge? Washes and semi-permanent dyes are a great way to experiment without the commitment. Or how about some slices, complementing your existing shade with a warming pop of vibrancy?

For the ultimate red hair maintenance, keep things healthy with a regimented hair care routine rich in colour protectants, and avoid direct sun as this will significantly lighten the brighter shades. For seriously lustrous reds try Pureology Reviving Red Shamp’oil, Reflective Condition and Reviving Red Illuminating Caring Oil with anti-fade and natural lycopene to retain the red in your hair. All are available at Cutting Club from our in-salon shop or save time with Click and Collect service.
