Red hair is the latest trend to sweep the nation, but before you rush out and get your head red there are a few things you should consider first. We asked a hairdresser in Tweed Heads for her advice and she gave us this quick guide:
- Look at reviews and call different salons
It’s important to find the right hair colourist who has had experience in red hair whether you are a natural red head or have acquired your colour. Ask around until you find someone who you feel comfortable with and has a good reputation for colour.
- Visit your Colourist
Many salons offer clients complimentary consultations and this is a great way to get a good idea of the possibilities for your particular hair and skin type as well as finding a salon and colourist that is right for you.
- Colour and Lifestyle
It is important to take some time to consider changing your hair to red. With some hair types the red colour once introduced is very hard to remove or change, it almost has to grow out. Other hair types just will not hold the red colour so it becomes an ordeal to keep your hair looking good, but your hair colourist consultant will be able to advise you on your best options.
- Find the right colour for you
It is important to understand that in order to look good you need to have the right hair shade that matches your skin tone and complexion.
- Know your hair history
Always tell your colourist your complete hair history, particularly any treatments you may have had as different dye molecules do not always mix well with others and can give mixed results, some of which you may not like.
- Find your right colour
If you have some idea of the colour and shade of the hair you would like take photos or samples to your consultation. The different shades of red that can be created are endless so narrowing down your particular perfect colour can take time.
- Experiment first with temp colours
Sometimes it is advisable to start with temporary streaks and highlights so you gradually build into your perfect colour as a full and total can be a bit overwhelming.
- High and low lights/tints
As a rule, it is advisable to stay within several shades of colour for a more natural look, of course, many people now are not so concerned with it being a natural look they are just after the colour they like best.
- Seal in the colour
Many colourists like to finish with a clear gloss finish to seal in your colour and add a real shine to your hair.
After you have you’re newly made hair masterpiece, it only makes sense to ask your colourists to suggest the best products to keep your new red hair from fading and keeping it looking great.
The new rage in hair styles is beautiful red hair, having a guide on how to get beautiful red hair from a local hairdresser in Tweed Heads can make the difference between a successful hair job and a mediocre look that does really not match your complexion and skin type.
