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.

The new year is here, bringing fresh ideas and inspirations like this bright, cheerful red. Fiesta is one of Pantone’s trend shades for spring 2016. The company calls it “strong and fiery” and says it provides a “stark contrast to the calming, softer nature of the this season’s palette.” I love the hue on the prohibition-style bob pictured above, another forecasted trend for the upcoming season.

Hair color is a hot topic of the beauty conscious, and this week’s look at wearing blonde, brunette, or red shows how different colors change how we look and feel. Then, as we were catching up with some of our favorite fashion bloggers, we found this sexy, bombshell cochineal by tootsie covers queen, Jane Aldridge –– master of the Sea of Shoes blog. We adore it. It’s vibrant like a vixen, and paired with her pale complexion, it creates the contrast that stands out in a crowd. The styling is great too. A simple center-part drifts into a tumbling wave cascade with casual carefree elegance; the tousle on the ends spotlights the brightness of the hue.
