Red is a color that human eyes see very well, making it possible for us to distinguish between dozens of shades ranging from burgundy, to crimson, to copper. But to create a red that is just “red” without appearing either orange or violet tinged, is one of the hardest things to do with hair color. The reason is that hair color pigments (the ones in semi, demi, and permanent dye) don’t come in red. They only exist in red-orange and red-violet. To create a pure red, one must blend and layer. If you examine the image above you’ll notice that what at first appears to be a primary hue is actually a blend of two different colors, a cool red at the edges and a warmer one on the interior, but the difference is just subtle enough that the finished effect reads are a pure, saturated hue. Learn to create this seemingly simple shade in the notes. ––  Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

Vivid shades that still look natural often take their hues from tropical fruits and flowers, like this luscious color inspired by the musky-sweet flesh of papaya. Papaya is more mild than many other tropical fruits, and for its namesake hue I balanced vibrancy with softness. This color is bright and sunny, but not blinding or showy.

Vibrant reds are a gorgeous choice for fall and winter, but if you like dimension they can present some challenges. Finding a highlight color that pairs well with rich red-violet is nearly impossible. But there’s a better way: create dimension first, then glaze with a translucent, monochrome hue. The resulting color has variation that looks like light and shadow instead of obvious highlights.

Trending red shades for the coming year fall outside of the predictable range of copper, burgundy and cherry. Rose and mauve undertones give bright reds a softer look that will transition beautifully from late winter into the early days of spring.
