If you want to stand out and turn heads, then this shade is what you are looking for. This dual hue moves with the light, giving your hair more movement and vibrancy.

So when it comes to coloring your hair, don’t be afraid to try more than one shade. But remember that your hair is your crowning glory and it should be treated with care. If you decide to try more than one shade of red, we suggest going for the darkest shades first and working your way to a lighter color. This way, the coloring process won’t be too harsh for your hair.
