12 Cute and Creative Red Hair Color Ideas That Are Trending Now

Hair is a fun way to show off your personality and creativity. There’s no better time than now to test out different looks.

Hair coloring techniques have made huge strides in the last few years. Now you can get lowlights, highlights and balayage in bright colors and shades, no matter what your original hair color is.

Here we’ve put together some of the cutest and most creative red hair color ideas that you can try out! Check out some of our other hairstyle inspiration looks in blonde, grey and short and long hair.

1. A Thousand Shades Of Red

Mix up reds and add streaks of deep reds, bright reds and neutral ones. Balayage is on-trend right now and of course, that means you can create a red balayage look as well as the classic blonde ones.

The hair color is perfect for the fall months when nature around us is full of these colors!

2. Rose Gold Color

Although this hair color is not technically red, when it comes to hair, I think this falls under the red/blonde section.

If red isn’t your thing, tone it down with this rose gold hair. It’s got a tinge of red in it but it’s a less daring look. Combine it with this stylish cropped hairstyle and you’ll have all the heads turning!

3. Autumn Hair Vibes

This dip-dye hairstyle is for those who want some red but, in a subtle less overpowering way.

Dip-dye is definitely on-trend now and it has been for a while too. It gives the perfect combination of adding a different colour, without it giving you a whole new look.

4. Copper Highlights

Get coppery and orange shades with this fall-inspired copper highlights hair color. Similar to the first hair colour, but with more reds and coppers.

5. Orange-Red Balayage

Orange hair doesn’t mean you need to look like a carrot and this hairstyle is proof of that. Turn your hair classy and elegant with some orange highlights. This hair color looks like different shades of fall!

6. Brown Hair With Auburn Highlights

Mix red and brown shades to achieve this gorgeous red-brown hair. Call it Auburn or mahogany, either way, it’s stunning! This hair colour works beautifully on long and short hair, curly or straight!

7. Pumpkin Spice Hair Color

For the more daring one, we have this fun, bright orange, pumpkin-spice hair color.

I recommend this for those with warm golden skin tones and not for those with very pale skin because it will be too overpowering.

8. Dark Cherry Color

One of our favourite shades this year is this dark cherry hair colour. It’s deep, romantic and simply gorgeous. Of course, it’s balayage too with it being brown at the roots and redder at the ends. Simple and oh-so-pretty!

9. Deep Red-Auburn

It looks like we can’t get enough of Auburn hair colours this season! The simple reason is, that they are all too pretty not to include, I’m sure you agree!

This hair color features fewer shades than most, but looks striking on those with straight hair! It’s a powerful look that says don’t mess with me!

10. Barbie Pink

We know pink isn’t red, but it’s in the same family, simply a lighter version of red! Pink hair is back bigger than ever before. Instead of one hue, add different tones and shades of pink to create this fun pink look!

Best suited to those with blonde hair, it’s an easy way to add some colour and spunk into your life.

11. Curly Burgundy Highlights

Take your hair up a notch with this fabulous curly red hair look. Add some bright reds to the tips and deeper reds to the roots. Pair up the look with matching maroon lipstick!

12. Brilliant Orange and Red Hair

Orange technically falls under the shades of red, and anyway, how could we pass on this delicious look?!

This deep orange is perfect for the autumn and winter months when these colours are all around us. Copy this look and finish it with fab beach waves to frame your face!

My Thoughts

Red hair is a perfect choice for autumn and winter months when the colours around us are all deeper and the leaves go through all shades of orange and red.

There are loads of really pretty shades that are wintery and deep, from maroon to burgundy and wine to cherry.

There’s a red color for every skin shade and tone and if you’re not sure you can always stick to a tie-dye hairstyle where you can get away with any shade!
