Many women who want to take the leap and dye their hair red decide to go with red ash hair color instead of a classic red. Red ash is a slightly more toned down and less dramatic variation on a classic color, and it’s a great option for women who want to ease into this trend without going overboard. Whether you’re still thinking about dyeing your hair and you’re looking for inspiration, or you’re keeping an eye out for ways to style your brand new strands, here are 10 easy ways to style your red ash hair:
10 Ways to Style Your Red Ash Hair
1. Wavy Curls
This style is easy to create and looks polished without looking overdone. Use a 1-inch curling iron to create curls all over your head. The key to creating waves instead of tight curls is to only leave each strand of hair around the barrel for 10-15 seconds at a time. This way the curls will remain loose and undone.
2. Straight Bob
A short, sleek bob with a blunt edge is the perfect match for your red ash hair color. Run TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color Smoothing Serum through the bottom half of your style for extra color-safe vibrancy and shine.
3. Stick Straight
Show off your new hair color with stick straight strands. Start off by protecting your hair with Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist and then use your flat iron to create this stick straight style.
4. ‘I Woke Up Like This’
Wake up with the perfect wave every time by following this easy routine. Wash and condition your hair, spray it with Dove Absolute Curls Leave-In Detangler, go to sleep and wake up with perfect waves.
5. Classic Curls
Balance out your edgy hair color with a classic style. Use a 1-inch curling iron to create these classic curls on the bottom half of your hair.
6. The A-line Bob
Pair your new color with an edgy haircut. The a-line bob is longer in the front and shorter in the back for a trendy asymmetrical style that we can’t get enough of.
7. Falling Curls
Curl your hair and let it fall naturally sans hair product for a laid-back look.
8. Air-Dry Perfection
Letting your hair air dry is arguably the most low maintenance styling technique out there.
9. Loose Curls
Use a curling wand to create easy and loose curls for a chic and sophisticated style.
10. Oversized Curls
Swap your usual curling iron for a large barrel alternative to create these oversized curls.
