REDHEAD TIP #1: Stay near the same depth as your natural base color. If you're naturally a
medium blonde to light blonde you can go as deep as a vibrant copper or as light as a strawberry

REDHEAD TIP #2: If you’re a brunette, steer clear of cool blue or violet-based reds like
mahogany or anything that says ‘eggplant.’ If you are already pretty dark, they have a tendency to wash out your complexion and it just doesn't look natural when it appears in the sunlight.

REDHEAD TIP #3: When you want to add more vibrancy, ask your colorist to add tone-on-tone
highlights. This will also help color keep its shine and prevent it from appearing dull. It keeps the red more interesting.

REDHEAD TIP #4: Red hair requires a bit of maintenance, unfortunately glosses tend to wash
out pretty quickly. If you're in between appointments and need a bit of a boost, opt for a color
depositing conditioner. Choose a conditioner with more color concentration in it, and will
smooth the shaft the longer you leave it on. As for shampoos, always use one formulated for
color treated hair. This will help to keep the color from fading.
