Red Hair Color

These hues are fire. If you thought red hair color wasn’t for you, think again. From spicy to rich there’s a red for everyone.

Auburn Hair

A beautiful marriage of red and brown, auburn hair can be light or dark and is one of the most natural-looking shades in the red family. Confident auburn redheads punctuate their looks with red lipstick and a cat eye, and the result is nothing less than outstanding.
