We see it on celebrities, red carpet looks and magazine covers – beautiful red hair never seems to go out of style. But in the world of hair color, achieving an amazing red tone can be easier said than done. Therefore, we’ve taken this week’s blog post to discuss how to achieve the hair of your dreams.
Rocking a red hair look can be hard but we believe that most people (at least with professional help) can pull it off. At Fabio Scalia Salons our philosophy is simple: if you feel good with your hair, you will look good in it. Luckily, there are different tones, or hues as we call them, that allow almost everyone to look good in red hair. It’s all about finding the right tone for you. For instance, if you naturally have a super dark base, you can add some red tones to get more dimension. If a client comes in and wants red hair, we would start with a consultation to decide whether her natural tones could work with it. After that, we decide how light or dark the hue would be. There are many different shades of red; violet red, copper, burgundy… the list goes on and on.
One thing to take into consideration before your makeover, is that red color tends to fade quicker than, for instance, blonde. We want your hair to look good not only when you leave the salon, but all the weeks in between your appointments as well. Therefore, it’s super important to use products for colored hair. When you invest in a hair color, you should definitely make sure you have the right products for it. As the weeks pass by, your color will fade slightly and when this happens, it might be a great idea to boost your strands with a gloss or a toner to keep the color vibrant.
Achieving an amazing red tone can be an art form, but as top hairdressers in New York City, we can help you get the color you’ve always dreamt of.
