Celebrate Red Hair Day With These 5 Styles

Show off your multi-tonal color with natural waves.

1. Dark Auburn Wavy Lob

This dark auburn color is so gorgeous. We love auburn shades because they are right in between brown and red, which makes it super flattering. Get natural waves by scrunching TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel onto your wet hair and allowing to air-dry. This will amp up any wavy texture you have and will keep air-dry related frizz at bay.

2. Straight Strawberry Blonde

For a lighter take on red hair, strawberry blond is a winner. When this hue matches your natural freckles, it’s extra cute. Show off this color with a pin straight style. Always protect your hair prior to heat styling with a good heat protector. Use the Dove Style+Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray for your needed heat protection with added shine. Slowly flat iron your hair to a swishy, shiny, straight finish.

3. Casual Bright Red Curls

We love the look of curls in red hair! You can go for glamorous old Hollywood style curls, or for something more relaxed try this technique for more casual curls. After prepping your hair with a heat protection spray, section off the top of your hair so you can work with the bottom half. To get loose curls you’ll be using a large barrel curling iron, or a flat iron on a low heat. Curl larger two inch sections and allow to cool while in the just off the iron spiral. Work your way up until all of your hair is curled and cooled down. Then just use your fingers to break up the curls for a piecey look.

4. Sleek Ginger Bob

True ginger hair should be celebrated because it is so beautiful! We love the orange tone because it is bright and fearless. Style your hair into a sleek bob to show off your chic professional side. For the ultimate in smooth hair use a hair serum before blowdrying your hair. We love the Nexxus Ultralight Smooth Frizz Defy Cream Serum that works ti defy frizz and adds shine while it moisturizes your hair. Then blow-dry your hair straight using a round brush for turned under ends.
