Our Favourite Celeb Red-Heads to Inspire An Autumn Hair Makeover

What could be more perfect for an Autumn inspired shake up to your hairstyle than to take on red hair? While it hasn’t always been a most-wanted colour, red hair is having a serious moment thanks to celebrities who are proving the colour is versatile and suits just about any skin tone.

The beauty of red hair is the flexibility offered in the huge shade range. From strawberry blonde, to ginger, to auburn, there’s a shade that will suit any skin tone, eye colour or personality, it’s just about finding the right one for you.

The warmth of red hair brightens your complexion and makes eyes pop, exactly what you want from your hair colour!

When choosing your shade of red, lighter skin tones are best to stick to lighter shades or bright coppery colours as anything too pigmented can look heavy and wash out your face. Darker skintones can take on more pigmented colours such as bright red and auburn.

Take a look at our favourite celeb red heads for inspiration…

Nicole Kidman

The Aussie actress has rocked a few shades of red over her years and often tones her colour right back to a light blonde but it’s her light, coppery orange that we like best.

Blake Lively

She may be known for her blonde locks but Blake Livelys time with this ‘bronde’ colour shouldn’t be ignored. It’s a great shade for blondes looking to shake up their natural colour.

For the truley bold and rock ‘n’ roll at heart, Halsey’s bright red is for you. Although, you should know that this tone is really difficult to achieve through colouring so maybe reach for a wig for the sake of your hair’s health.

Emma Stone

Another hair chameleon, Emma’s time with this deep auburn shade is the perfect inspiration for natural brunettes who want to dip their toe into the world of being a red-head.
