Crazy for Copper

Actress Christina Hendricks' bright copper hue never fails to turn heads. This shade of red looks amazing on pale skin and is an ideal red for you if your natural hair color is medium brown to dark blond. The new bright-red hair colors don't fade as quickly as they used to, but you should still pick up a refresher shampoo for red hair to brighten up your strands if they begin to look a little dull.

Actress Nicole Kidman has had many hair colors throughout the years, but none seems to suit her quite as well as this strawberry blond hue. A mixture of blond and red, this perfectly balanced combination is a great way to add a little depth and warmth to your blond hair.

Gorgeous Ginger

Actress Amy Adams' subtle ginger hue is the perfect choice for you if the thought of wearing a full-blown red color is a little scary. This easy-to-wear red isn't so bright that it'll shock you every time you look in the mirror, but it will enhance light brown or blond hair and add a little color to pale skin tones.

Amazing Auburn

Auburn, like actress Bella Thorne's hair color, is one step up on the brightness scale from ginger, but still tame enough for those new to red. In fact, many who try it stick with this shade because it's just so darn gorgeous. Choose a dark auburn shade if your skin tone and hair are dark, or go with a medium or light auburn if you have lighter coloring.

Copper Hot

WWE's Eve Torres has a good grip on what looks good on her with this warm copper-brown shade. Sometimes you just want to jazz up your existing brown hair color without giving it up entirely. By brightening up your brown hair with a hint of copper, your hair will look shinier and have the look of subtle highlights.

Singer Estelle enhances her dark locks by coloring them with a cool-toned burgundy red shade. The result is a brighter, flirty shade that's noticeable but not overpowering. The best part is you can create this look totally damage-free by using a semi-permanent hair color. The results will last six to eight weeks but won't dry out your hair one little bit.

Cherry Bomb

Model Alicia Fox wants her red hair color to take center stage, so she opted for a bright cherry-red hue to mix in with her dark hair color. The result is bold, and certainly not for everyone, but if you like your red big and bold, cherry is definitely the way to go.

Shine On

Actress Sarah Mitchell is a shining example of how a subtle change in color is maximized by keeping your hair shiny and healthy. Regular trims and deep conditioning treatments are the best friend of every red hair color and will help your hair color reflect the light and show its true tones and highlights.
