PSA: Red Locks Are Going to Be The Most Sought-After Fall Trend


Yes, we know platinum blonde hair is having a moment and we have got to thank our favourite family, the Targaryens for that. And while all shades of blonde are having their own time in the limelight, we’d like to bring your attention to the fact that the most rebellious hue is back. Red hair is making its way into the season’s trends and we stan!

We’ve seen a bunch of celebrities sport this hair colour, both internationally and closer to home. How could we ever forget Katrina Kaif’s deep cherry mane? “Red is a super versatile colour which looks good on every skin tone and it has the power to make your facial features sharper. This is one colour that’s never going to go out of style, and we will be seeing more of it,” says Amit Thakur, Celebrity Hairstylist who works closely with Katrina Kaif.

As a new blondie who used to rock a head full of red hair, I have to admit that nothing really turns heads better than this striking hue. The journey towards being a redhead can be a pretty tumultuous one, that’s one thing we can all agree on. However, if you’ve been looking to add a dash of colour to your life with the season’s favourite, read on for inspo.

Here are a few ways in which you can absolutely rock red hair. 

Red Melts

Melts are always an ideal choice when you want the colour to ease into your natural hair. A hue that melts from red tones and blends with slightly browner tones is all you need if you’re unsure about going all out with your hair colour. 

For The Love Of Goth

Going goth isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially when it happens to be with a colour as striking as red. However, if you feel like shaking things up a tad bit, dye your locks from your roots to your mid-lengths with this hue and let it blend into your natural colour, like an upside down ombre! Got that rebellion lurking in you somewhere? Unleash it with this style.

Money piece highlights are probably the secret to framing your face and making that facial structure pop. Red is the perfect colour for these. If you happen to be someone who’s terrified of committing to global hair colour, money piece highlights are the answer.

Copper Seems The Way

Copper red has been a hot favourite across the world, and rightfully so. We have Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner making a strong case for copper red from time to time! It isn’t as flamboyant as its counterpart but still manages to make you look like the star of the room!

If you’re a lover of this intense colour but are still looking to balance it out with dark brown tones, opt for brown-hued highlights or underlights to go with the red. Doing this will ensure that the red isn’t overpowering.

Saved the best one for the last, obviously! Rocking such an intense hue of red requires some massive courage. That’s exactly why I managed to sashay this exact colour for over 5 years. Not meant for the weak hearted, a full head of red hair is something that everyone should sport at least once in their life.
