Redhot redhead: Mahogany hair or copper hair?

Mahogany vs. copper hair

The winter can be uninviting with its cold grey weather - don't let it get you down! Brighten your spirits by paying a visit to your favorite hairstylist and getting your hair colored red. But which should you choose? Mahogany or copper? We're here to help you decide.

Mahogany red

The color: Like any hair color, lots of different varieties exist for red hair. However, the classic traditional color we all think of as 'red' is mahogany, which is a dark rich red with brown undertones. It's currently trending as 'broux' or brown red hair.

The style: A little black dress looks stunning with mahogany colored hair. Add an accent bracelet, a great pair of heels, and you're good to go!

What the editors say: Girls who are natural brunettes with olive complexions will be able to pull off mahogany red no problem. If you're fair-skinned, consider speaking with your hairstylist to determine if this color would suit your complexion and skin undertone, as the color could be too dark for you.

Copper red

The color: Many different shades of copper exist, but typical copper has orange undertones to it.

The style: Green, especially emerald green, pairs beautifully with copper-colored hair and looks especially great when hair is curled or left wavy. If you ever have any doubts about what other colors could work with copper hair, use celebrities like Christina Hendricks or Emma Stone as a source of inspiration.

What the editors say: Fair skinned girls with naturally light hair like blonde, look best with copper toned red. If you've got dark hair or a warmer complexion, it's a good idea to ask your hairdresser for advice about what copper shade could suit you before taking the leap.
