There’s just no doubt about it – red is the perfect hair color for fall! This year is definitely no exception because we’re already seeing a huge demand for shades of red from our clients here at Village Salon. Even if you don’t think red is quite the shade for you, we think you’ll reconsider when you hear about all these different shades that are trending this fall. Here are just a few of our favorite fall reds that we’re seeing this year.
Golden ginger. This gold-tone take-on strawberry blonde is a great choice for fall. The rich, warm golden hues are combined with cream and spice tones for a beautiful color.
Neutral copper. If you like a nice red but don’t want too much brightness, this color is a great option. It starts with a copper base and brings in some neutral highlights and lowlights to tone down the stark brightness.
Ruby. To add some cool rich, gorgeous color to a dark brown or even black base, try some subtle highlights of ruby red. it’s just enough to add some noticeable color without going full-on red.
Cayenne spice. Another great warm shade for fall, this color layers on blonde and red tones to create a beautiful spicy middle-ground look.
Rose gold. That color we love everywhere also looks incredible as a customized strawberry blonde shade. This mix of highlights and lowlights has a metallic-like shimmer that’s perfect for fall.
Copper highlights. A great way to warm up a rich brunette, copper highlights add warmth and color for the great interest and high dimension for your style.
Natural ginger. There’s a reason why natural red shades are so interesting – it’s all in the multiple shades that actually make up a natural red. From blondes to browns to reds, it’s the combination of these different colors that make it so appealing. A great stylist like the experts at Village Salon can help you get a natural-looking head of red hair, even if you weren’t born that way!
Spice ginger. Starting with a brown base gives you an incredibly rich red color, and that’s the secret behind spice ginger. It’s a great shade for fall, mimicking the look of the changing colors of nature around us.
Cinnamon spice. If you love your brunette but want to add just the slightest hint of red, try some highlights or babylights in cinnamon hues. It’s a rich, warm gorgeous color that looks as great as it sounds!
Each year, we hear from a few clients who are nervous about going red because they think it’s a difficult color to upkeep. While that can be true if you’re not following your colorist’s advice for hair care, it’s really easy to keep your red color looking salon-fresh by following just a few simple tips.
Always follow your colorist’s advice. You may read a lot about haircare online, but your own personal colorist at Village Salon & Spa knows your hair – and your color – the best. Following your hair coloring appointment, we’ll recommend products and tips, including things to avoid, to keep your hair color looking incredible.
Use professional products. Drugstore brands can contain some really harsh ingredients that can cause your color to fade. Always go with salon-trusted brands like Pureology, Redken, and Mizani, with product types recommended by your colorist, to get the results you need for gorgeous red hair that lasts.
Watch out for heat. Avoiding excessive use of heated styling tools is important, especially when your color is new. Heat can damage hair, which can sometimes cause hair color to fade fast. Decrease your use of blow dryers and heated styling tools, and ask your Village Salon & Spa stylist to suggest air-dry styles and ideas minimize heat exposure to keep your color looking beautiful.
Wait to shampoo. Immediately after your coloring appointment, your colorist will let you know how long you should wait before your first shampoo. This is important because shampooing too soon can remove your hair color pre-maturely.
