Dark Red Hair Color Ideas

Hair coloring is a good option to be considered if you want to get a quick makeover. While coloring hair, some opt to stick to the fashionable yet subtle look, and some like to look modish with the weird hair color shades. Dark red is one such hair color, which many choose to experiment with. If you are one of those interested in adding dark red color to your hair, then here are some tips and ideas to help you wear the best look.

Choosing the Right Shade of Dark Red
If you have decided to get that ‘dark red’ on your hair then you have a lot of options within it. Check out the hair color chart with your colorist to find out various shades of this color. If you have olive skin tone you can opt for brighter dark red color. Using dark red is one of the best hair color ideas for olive skin. Even those with tanned skin can opt for dark red hair color. Dark red hair color with golden base, rich auburn hair color or mahogany color are best picks for those having medium to dark brown skin tone. One of the basic hair coloring tips is to choose a color that will suit your complexion. Next, consider your natural hair color shade. Remember that each shade will have different results depending on your natural hair color. Like auburn hair color will result into a golden auburn when used on light blond and will give a warm coppery brown tone when used on dark brown hair color. Dark coral-red and vermilion red are the shades of dark red which look best when used on entire hair and these also suit most of the skin tones. A well designed shade card often helps understand the resulting shade, according to various shades of natural hair colors. Any shade of dark red looks perfect for short hairstyles.

Adding Hot Red Highlights
While dark red is commonly used in punk and short emo hairstyles, it is an equally popular hair color for highlights. If you are scared of going complete red, then you can start with dark red highlights. Yes, these look awesome and moreover suit almost any skin tone and hair color. Dark red highlights can emphasize the front curls on natural black hair. One of the classy dark red hair color ideas is to highlight blond hair with rich red shades. Also, dark tomato red highlights mixed with blond highlights can look great together. Those having green, turquoise, golden brown or hazel eyes, can definitely try out dark red highlights to beautify their locks. Another option is coloring entire hair  in rich dark red and having blond highlights in them. This is sure to give an awesome look. Let me tell you that red hair with blond highlights is a hot trend. One of the dark red hair color ideas is to opt for the plum red color and mix it with dark brown to have dark plum red hair color which will give a classy look. Try a blond and plum red combination and wear a bold look. Using plum red to highlight the bangs or fancify the razor haircuts is a wonderful hair coloring idea.

Following the Aftercare Routine
Remember that whether you choose to color complete length of hair with dark red or just get a few dark red highlights, maintaining your hair is very essential. Dull and faded red hair color will flatten your looks. Especially completely colored hair looks extremely unattractive after the color fades. A day before you color your hair, shampoo them and make sure you do not use a conditioner. After application of dark red hair color, wash it lukewarm water and apply conditioner. Use shampoo only after two days and use a conditioner after every wash for maintaining the color. Avoid heat styling and use a shampoo and conditioner that is specially formulated for colored hair. Using hair serum that protects hair from harsh sunrays is essential after every wash.

Time was when your hair color choices were blonde, red, brunette, and black, but those days are long gone! Each basic hair color comes in a full array of choices from platinum blonde to jet-black. Moreover, the modern consumer must choose from non-traditional hair colors that range from hot pink to chartreuse. However, the wrong hair color choice can give you the blues and leave you red in the face!

First Hair Color Choices
The best method in choosing a hair color is first to choose the results you want from it. Depending on whether you are covering gray, highlighting a natural hair color, or using hair color to completely change your image, knowing what you want helps you to narrow down hair coloring choices.

Before you get down to choosing a hair color, first decide on your commitment to hair coloring. Temporary hair colors wash out in a shampoo or two, semi permanent products typically last for a couple of months, while permanent dyes may either give you grow-out pains or necessitate frequent root touch ups.

Choosing a Compatible Hair Color
After you’ve decided on results and made your commitment, it’s time to get out the color wheel. Beauty experts tell us that we’re either “cool” or “warm” depending on our skin tone, eye color, and natural hair color.

  Cool Category Warm Category
Eyes Dark Brown, Black-Brown, Gray Blue, Dark Blue, or Hazel with white gray or blue flecks Golden brown, Green, Green-Blue, Turquoise, Hazel with gold or brown flecks
Hair Blue black, Deep brown, Ash brown, Ash Blond, Platinum Blond Deep brown with gold or red highlights, Red, Strawberry Blond, Gray-Yellow, Natural Golden Blond
Skin Very dark brown, True olive, Medium pale, Medium with golden undertones, Pale, Bronze Brown with pink or golden undertones, Peachy or with peachy undertones, Pale with gold undertones, Freckled, Ruddy

Although this is good advice, if you’ve just finished a tanning session, if you have some complexion problems (Rosacea, liver spots, blemishes), or if your hair color is already not what nature intended (in other words previously tinted or more salt than pepper), it may be difficult to determine by examining your skin tone and hair color. Don’t despair! There is a shortcut!

Examine your wardrobe. Cool hues are green, blue, and violet. Warm hues are reds, oranges, and yellows. Chances are, your wardrobe is a mix with either cool or warm hues in the majority. Clothing colors that look good on you and make you feel comfortable probably indicate if you’re in the cool or warm category. For instance, if olive drab makes you fade into the woodwork, then cool tones like ash blonde (ash tones contain green) are probably not for you.

In addition, most commercial hair colors have aids on the box, yet if you have a hard time deciding which group is your group, you may want to seek the advice of a professional hair stylist.

Hair Color Tips:

  1. Highlighting is a great way to add tone to monochromatic hair (jet black, pure brown).
  2. Beware of hair colors that have green, blue, or purple undertones, like “ash”. If you mix them with warm tones, your hair color will turn out green.
  3. The levels (one to twelve) you see on hair coloring boxes are the lightness or darkness of the color. Level one is black (darkest) and level twelve is light blond.
  4. “Complimentary colors” are opposite each other on the color wheel. Blue-orange, violet-yellow, etc. If you want to neutralize unwanted highlights, choose the complementary color. For instance, red will cancel out an ash undertone, and an ashen color neutralizes any red highlights in your hair.
  5. Be sure to check if your hair color is a “progressive dye”. Progressive dyes continually add more color with each use. For instance, if you’re coloring blond hair black, your first use of a progressive hair color may not give the result you expected. However, continued use will turn your hair jet black.
  6. Hair colors, like perms, are chemically based so if you’re pregnant, be sure to check with your doctor before coloring your hair.
  7. Henna hair dyes are organic based hair colors that don’t mix well with chemicals. Stay out of the pool and the ocean after coloring your hair. Neither sea salt nor chlorine mixes well with chemical hair colors.
