cute red hairstyles

This season the hottest hair color to wear is red, and the shades of red are many! They range from strawberry blonde to deep magenta – and everything in between! Short hair is the best type to turn red as they are easy to manage and look extremely cute when colored. It is worth having your red shade double checked by someone who knows about color as not all reds suit everyone. You might look better with a red at one end of the color chart but not at the other, so it is important to find the best section to choose from. There are many styles which just lend themselves to red hair, most of them are easy to manage yourself.

A multi red razor cut bob is a very cute style where the bod is quite radically razored into layers. The red colors are applied in different shades and the result is very striking, to say the least!

A bold, messy bun is a style which seems to work well for an ‘in your face’ magenta. The bun is loosely gathered up at the back and secured. Magenta works well for either dark or fair skin tones.

Corn rows using a subtle shade of lilac are very cute especially for younger girls. This is a great style for handling extremely straight hair as it is a complete change of style.

Coating long waves in a candy color is a lovely style for longer hair. Curls are very loose and casual and tinted in pastel colors. Not quite as harsh as a full root color change but just as effective and cute.

For straight hair there is nothing more striking than combining violet and magenta with the darker color used at the roots. This gives thin hair the look of body and fullness.

While bob cuts are always fun to wear, when you want to grow them out it seems to take ages!

Either a solid color or layers of shades will work well to keep a cute looking style and relieve the boredom of growing out the bob.

Some points to consider – having chosen you new red shade and style – are that red takes quite a bit of upkeep to maintain that ‘just done’ look and the fresh color appeal. You will notice that red of any shade will begin to fade after about three weeks so you should be prepared to have your color re aplied. This is because the dye molecules in the color red are larger than most and do not penetrate the hair as deeply.

Having had your hair colored you should not wash it for at least 48 hours. Even after that time you should not wash your hair more than once a week. Towel dry your hair instead of using heat on it. Any dry shampoo can be used if your hair gets oily between washes. If you pay attention to taking care of this new color it will enhance a cute hairstyle for many weeks.
