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.

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.

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.
