Imagine how red could spice up your look if you color your hair with it. Combine it with short and edgy hairstyles and the result would certainly be Insta-worthy. Here are some ideas on how you can rock short red hair.
Spice up your look with short red hair
1. Bright red pixie cut
Got pale or fair complexion? Add warmth to your face by dyeing your hair bright red. If you’re a performer, sport this look and you’ll surely capture people’s attention when you step on stage. Just go for regular trims every three weeks or every month to maintain your pixie cut.
Editor’s tip: Help enhance your hair color while keeping your locks from getting dry by using Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner.
2. Medium auburn bob
If you think bright red is too fiery for you, go for auburn. It’s a shade of red that is a bit toned down. Put this color on a sleek, straight bob and be amazed at how auburn makes your hair glow when it catches light. Nail that sleek look by applying hair serum on your hair.
3. Red asymmetrical bob
Do you think that a regular bob looks too mainstream? Go for an asymmetrical one. It looks edgy and adds personality to your look. Dye your bob red and you’ll definitely stand out. Just make sure that your bob is free from tikwas by ironing or blow drying the tips inwards.
4. Dark copper bob
What is copper hair? It’s red with a bit of brown and rust thrown in. Its sophisticated hue makes you a head turner. Try it with layered bob or bob with bangs to play with texture and keep the color (and your hair) from falling flat.
