We feel that red is the unsung hero in hair color. Many of us veto the idea of fiery hair for fear that it won’t complement our features and skin tone. The beauty of auburn is that it’s super versatile and works with almost all colorings and skin tones. The deep red, coppery shade is striking and subtle all at the same time, bringing out the brazen vixen in anyone who dares to go red!

Product Recommendations: Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Nourishing Color Creme in Medium Intense Auburn, L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Light Auburn


Admit it, the little girl inside of you still has aspirations of channeling your inner fairy, complete with the cotton-candy-colored hair and glistening skin.

Invest in some hair chalk to give your hair some color without going permanent!
