Heat Up the Season by Becoming a Redhead
Thinking about getting a bold makeover, but blonde is just too bland and brunette is boring? Consider heating thing ups with a fiery red.
Fortunately, transforming yourself into a gorgeous redhead doesn’t require the luck of the Irish. And while Hollywood screen sirens like Rita Hayworth and Maureen O'Hara looked super sultry with vibrant tresses, many Hollywood stars, including Amy Adams and Christina Hendricks, are firing up the red carpet with their head-turning looks.
“Red is now popular more than ever because it provides a WOW factor to your look,” explains celebrity stylist Pasquale Caselle of IT&LY Hairfashion. “Red is a bold, confident, and statement-making. Red is empowering as it stands out in a crowd. It is also sophisticated and sultry.”
“I love a good red head!” says Kitty Grellar, color director for Ted Gibson Beauty in New York City. “It takes a seemingly strong personality to rock it, but I tend to think red already brings out the strong person in us. I have seen more than one client come in as a demure brunette and walk out standing tall as a beautiful redhead. Their stance and confidence changes.”
While choosing this red-hot look can be an instant confidence-booster, it also comes with major challenges. From potentially damaging treatments to frequent upkeep, going red is not an easy task–but if done correctly, it can create stunning results.
