dimensional red

Natural red hair has a different distribution of pigment then blonde or brown hair. In other colors the pigment molecules sit close to the surface, but for redheads they’re buried deep within the strand. This means that redheads are less prone to natural highlighting because light has to penetrate much more deeply into the hair. It also means that when redheads do lighten they lighten more dramatically. When creating dimensional reds the best looks follow the same principles: minimal variation, high contrast.
