A deep red hair dye is perfect no matter what the season. Even though most people turn to this color during the Autumn months, it’s equally gorgeous at any other time of year. There are a number of red hair dye shades for you to choose from. Whether you prefer bright cherry brown, warm red velvet or a deep red burgundy hair color, we’re sure you’ll find the shade you love when you shop deep red hair dye online with us.

The scope of different red hair dye shades can be overwhelming, and you might be unsure about what color is best for you. As a rule of thumb, it’s always better to choose a hair color with an undertone that’s the opposite of your skin tone.

So, for example, if you have a cool skin tone (e.g you suit silver jewellery better than gold), you should choose from warm red hair dye shades. Some examples of this would be:

  • Golden Copper
  • Medium Auburn
  • Red Velvet
  • Aubergine

If your skin has warm tones, you’ll need to choose from cool red hair dye shades. Look out for purple-y deep red hair colors. The blue tones that make up the purple will complement warm skin tones beautifully. Here are a few examples:

  • Burgundy
  • Red Violet
  • Magenta

You should also bear in mind how deep your skin tone is. If you have fair skin, you’ll be able to pull off a color like auburn much better than deep black cherry. Women with dark skin tones, on the other hand, can pull off deep and vivid shades beautifully and shouldn’t shy away from intense deep red hair dye for dark hair.

A deep red hair color is a great choice for brunettes looking for a style update. Not only is this color naturally similar to brown hair, it’s also easy to find a deep red hair dye for dark hair that doesn’t require pre-bleaching. Plus, since the change isn’t too drastic, you can enjoy having brightly colored hair without feeling like you’re making too much of a statement. If you just want to dip your toes into the trend, why not try a deep red brown hair color?

How to Match your Makeup to your Deep Red Hair Color

One point that people often overlook is that a change in hair color usually requires a change in make-up, too.

So, how should you change your make-up routine after using a deep dark red hair dye?

  • Avoid heavy smoky eye make-up: Just like you shouldn’t pair a strong eye make-up look with a strong lip color, the same principals stand for your hair. A deep red hair color is a statement in itself and smoky, over-defined eyes can take the attention away from your hair. Plus, you can also risk looking overdone.
  • Don’t avoid pinks: You know that advice your aunt once gave you about not pairing pink and red? Forget about it. A deep red hair color looks amazing against some pink blusher or lipstick. (And, let’s be honest, it’s much better to rock your red hair with some pink lipstick than a matching red lip color.)
  • But do avoid coral: While pink looks great with most red hair dye shades, the same definitely can’t be said for oranges or corals. They’ve got to go. The orange tones will clash with your new red ‘do.
  • Perk up your skin: Even if you pick the best deep red hair dye for your skin tone, you might still feel washed out after going red. A dusting of bronzer should do the trick in brightening up your complexion again. 
  • Don’t match your cuffs to your collars: If you were a blonde going brunette, you’d probably tint your eyebrows a couple of shades darker, right? This is a smart move, but we wouldn’t advise new redheads to do the same. Dyeing your natural eyebrows red will look pretty odd!

How to Maintain a Deep Red Hair Color

Unfortunately, like all other semi-permanent hair dyes, red hair can fade quickly. It’s not all doom and gloom, though, and there are a few ways that you can maintain your deep red hair color.

  • Wash your hair less frequently: Every time you wash your red hair, you lose a little bit of that vibrancy. By washing your hair just twice a week, your deep red hair color will last for even longer. If you’ve got particularly oily hair, and this sounds too infrequent, you can try washing your hair every second day in cold water. A bit of dry shampoo will also save you time and do wonders for your deep red hair color.
  • Rinse your hair with cold water: Whenever you rinse your hair with warm water, you open the pores of your hair which allows some of the color to escape. By washing your hair with cold water, you’ll keep all that color locked in. It might be a good idea to invest in a shower cap so that you can continue enjoying those warm, toasty showers!
  • Put some deep dark red hair dye in your conditioner: By putting some deep dark red hair dye into your conditioner, you can deposit a little bit of color onto your hair every time you wash it.
  • Keep your hair away from sunlight: Hair dyes fade quickly in sunlight. This doesn’t mean that you should channel your inner vampire and spend all your time indoors. Just cover your hair with a hat or headscarf, or use a UV protectant for your hair and you’ll be good to go.

So, what are you waiting for? A deep red hair color is the perfect shade for every season and isn’t just for Autumn or Winter! We have a huge range of deep dark red hair dye shades that we know will look amazing on you. Whether you want to look sweet like a cherry or bright like copper, red hair is anything but basic!
