Season trend: Red Hair

It's a common misconception that our salon only specialises in blonde but believe it or not, one of our favourite hues is red. Whether you're fond of a subtle strawberry blonde or a deep copper, we can make your rosy and ruby, dreams come true. 

Going red doesn't necessarily mean fiery and intense, it is possible to achieve a knockout red tone, on a more subtle scale. Perhaps try a pastel peach or rose gold to ease you into it but trust us, you'll be a total convert in no time at all. The brassy stripes of the 1990's and early 2000's really caused some trauma and so we've put together this little edit to highlight just how beautiful and empowering, warm tones can be.

 

    "I hear a lot of clients say that they prefer ash colours, as they believe warmth will bring out redness and pink tones in their skin tone. It's interesting because often colours such as gold, copper and red will warm complexion and will actually make features pop, especially the eyes" says our salon director, Mikki. "I myself, alternate between blonde and copper hair and I must admit, as much as I love having lighter locks, I always find myself missing the richness and vibrancy of red hair."  "For someone who's usually had a blonde colour service and are wanting to try a warmer tone, I'd recommend transitioning to a golden or slightly peachy tone first. If it's a temporary change, it's best to play with copper tones over a true red, as it will be easier to make your way back to blonde. However, I do suggest changing up your look up from time to time and being a redhead really is so much fun, so if you can muster up the confidence, just go for it."

    Transitioning to red is actually really easy, but it is important that your hair is in good condition, as this will determine how well your shade will hold and how even the tone will be. Make sure you're using high quality at home products and don't forget to treat your locks to an olaplex, from time to time. Not familiar with Olaplex? It's the number one, miracle product in the hair world. Olaplex is both an in-salon and at home treatment, which repairs protein bonds in the hair, therefore increasing hair elasticity and reducing porosity.   We all know that it's important to include professional home haircare products into your beauty routine but it's particularly crucial for red and copper tones. Especially if you've not had this type of colour before, or if you're blonde underneath, you may find that the vibrancy will fade rather quickly. We recommend using a salon certified, sulfate and paraben free shampoo and conditioner, to ensure you get the most out of your red locks. We love MR SMITH not only because their entire range is free of sulfate and parabens but every product protects the hair against UV, which is often the main culprit for colour fade, especially in sunny Queensland. It is also wise to invest in a good quality toner to use at home and one of our favourites is FABULOSO, with a variety of different tones, its never been easier to achieve your perfect shade.  If you're considering jumping on the redhead bandwagon, we recommend booking a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced colourists prior to your appointment. This way we can perfectly tailor your colour and find exactly the right shade of red for you.       http://mr-smith.com.au/  https://www.evohair.com/  https://olaplex.com.au/
