Carrot-top is not usually a compliment. The flat vivid orange associated with the vegetable is not a desirable shade for your strands.

This color has a copper heart, but it’s glazed with charcoal and burgundy for a complex, luxuriant tone. Get the formula and tips on application in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

This rich, lush red shot through with rust and blue-tinged sanguine has the look of vital fluid. It’s this season’s answer to vibrant red, a shade both vivid and restrained. The earthy undertones make it a flattering choice for a surprising variety of skin tones and give it a chameleon-like quality. The shade will appear brighter against neutrals, softer on brights, and can feel warm or cool depending on your daily outfits. Click the style notes for the professional formulation. –– Laura Martin

Persimmons are lovely, sweet and delicate. They’re also tricky. Like a perfect copper-red a persimmon can be too intense if overdone, or flat and astringent if under-processed.

Get application tips and professional formulas for this sweet, fruity hue in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
