Happy National Redhead Day! Today’s the day for all of our redheaded beauties out there to shine! This red hue is one of the rarest hair colors out there—only 2% of the population sport this shade. Also, red hair turns gray slower than other colors, like blonde and brunette. So, if you were born with this fiery hue, you definitely lucked out!
To celebrate we’ve rounded up nine redhead hairstyles in a variety of lengths, so there’s something for everyone. Whether you have long luscious locks or you want to sport a daring pixie cut, you’re sure to find some tips and tricks for styling your red hair.
National Redhead Day: Red Hairstyle Inspo for Any Length
1. Air-Dry Locks for National Redhead Day
Want a laid-back look? Opt for air-drying your hair!
2. Tight Curls
Show off your red hue with tight curls. Start by using Suave Professionals Volumizing Shampoo and Suave Professionals Volumizing Conditioner set to add more body and bounce to your hair. Follow with Dove Style+Care Smooth & Shine Heat Protection Spray by spraying the product evenly throughout your hair. Next, begin curling small sections of your hair with a 1-inch.
After the curls are cooled, gently brush out the curls with your fingers to create added volume. Finish the look with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Smooth Hold Level 2 to help lock your style in place all day long.
3. Sleek Blow Out for National Redhead Day
Celebrate National Redhead Day with a sleek blow out. Prep damp hair with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Blow Dry Balm. We love this product because it helps you create a super smooth blow out while giving you lightweight hold. Complete the look by blow-drying your hair with a round brush for a sleek style.
4. Classic Top Knot
Want to get your hair out of your face? Opt for a classic top knot. This style can be dressed up with hair clips or a scrunchie, or worn on its own.
5. Dutch Braid
Who doesn’t love a good braided style? Dutch braids are a great way to show off your love for braids while making a statement. Begin by taking three sections of hair at the crown of your head like you would for a regular french braid. Instead of crossing the strands over the center section, cross the strands underneath the center section to create a braid that pops. Literally! Repeat this until you’ve reached the end of your hair and secure with a hair tie.
6. Beach Waves
Let’s face it, beach waves never go out of season. For National Redhead Day, create the wavy texture we all know and love by spraying Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Sea Salt Infused Texture Spray on damp or dry hair, starting at the midshaft and working down towards the ends. After applying the product, scrunch your hair to create a wavy texture!
7. Pixie Cut With Bangs
If you want to go for a shorter ‘do, try a pixie cut with bangs! This easy to style, and is perfect for those who want a no-fuss look.
8. Curly Bob
Standout from the sea of typical sleek bobs with this loose curly variation. Create loose curls with a 1-inch curling iron and then brush out the curls to create a loose variation. Secure the style with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1. This is a great hair spray to use because it will give you long-lasting hold without making your hair stiff.
9. Versatile Mid-length
A mid-length style is perfect for so many reasons! This length is long enough to still do your favorite styles and you won’t have to worry about as many tangles. Apply Love Beauty and Planet Lavender and Argan Natural Oils Infusion to the midshaft and ends of your hair for a smooth, frizz-free look.
