From strawberry blond and different nuances of auburn , to red, copper and orange shades, there are far more ways to become a redhead than you'd think! Let's take a closer look at this autumnal hue that's perfect for bright and warm hair this season.

The classic: red-orange

When we think about red hair, sunkissed orange hues immediately come to mind. Even though it's far from the only color to represent the redhead spectrum, it remains one of the most popular and natural-looking. This is also why the shade is such a difficult one to achieve for those of us who haven't been born with it naturally. Luckily, hair color specialists know how to perform color miracles on most hair types!

Strawberry blond: the new light auburn shade

Between red and blond you'll find auburn. With its orange hues over a light, golden or ash base, until now it used to be the most subtle of the redhead shades. Now, a new hair color trend has taken its place: strawberry blond, an extremely light wash of red tones over light-colored hair that gives it an almost - but not quite - pink hue. This shade acts as a nod to pastel and rainbow hair color trends, but still remains discrete.

Punk rock red

While some shades like to keep a low profile, as red is already quite bold naturally, others, like this bold red, prefer to embrace their flamboyant qualities. Whether you opt for a super-hero style red color or a deeper shade such as garnet or Bordeaux for a punk rock effect, your hair is sure to get people talking. That said, these shades require a lot of looking after. Ask your hair colorist for the best hair care products to keep your red vibrant. That's just the price you pay for style!

Copper tones, for those who aren't ready to dive in

Those of you who wonder about going red, but don't yet have the courage, should think about reflective tones. At the hair salon, your stylist will know exactly how to apply exactly the right amount of color to give your hair a coppery shine. It's the ideal choice for warming up dark blond or light brown hair, as well as a good first step towards an all-over color.

Pinup auburn

Auburn hair promises all the mystery of brunette with the intensity of red. Both dark and coppery, it has exactly the right dose of orange to brighten dull hair and catch the light with captivating orange tones, especially on curls. Natural but far from boring, this color will never go out of fashion. It's a shade that's both stylish and risk-free for fall.
