Double up on braids for extra visual interest.

Pair a thin braid with a thick braid across the top of your head for a double braided look that ends in a simple twisted knot. Crisscrossing styles like this adds extra visual interest and showcases the boldness of your red hair. Lock in your style with hairspray, like Dove Style + Care Compressed Extra Hold Hairspray

Channel your inner ’90s sitcom star.

Walk with us down memory lane for a second and think back to the ’90s when claw clips were everyone’s top must-have beauty item. Remember the twist and clip? Gather your hair into a loose ponytail, twist it around twice, and clip it into place letting the extra hair cascade over the top. Simple enough, right? This style is a great way to showcase your natural curls. Use two pumps of Dove Curls Defining Mousse on wet hair for extra voluminous curls.

3. Go Straight
