  • Red can be tricky to do if you want any sort of light red. It would have to be done at a salon. If you want to do it yourself I would get like red red if you want something that stands out and if you want a more subtle color i would get a medium or dark auburn

  • I'm a strawberry blonde with very fair skin and hazel eyes. I'd recommend doing strawberry blonde instead of full on red. Blonde and red go well together with the fairer skin and hazel eyes. I agree with whoever suggested a salon though because red is tricky, anyway.

  • Start subtle, go for a mahogany or auburn color just a few shades redder than your natural color. If you like that and want to go redder, keep going redder by slow shades until you hit a color you like that looks good.

  • I'm actually a stylist, so I think I can handle it myself, lol. I was just wondering what everyone's opinions are. Thanks.

  • Beware of red. As a stylist you know that red is hard to keep. It washes out quickly. But I would go with a deep auburn or a almost crimson color.
