Sophisticate’s Blog:           Are You Better Off Red?


Screen shot 2013-06-24 at 8.31.37 AM

Who wouldn’t want to be a ravishing red head? Celebs like Emma Stone, Christina Hendrix, Isla Fisher and Florence Welch have shown us that this haute hair color is ultra chic! And what’s even better? There are endless shades to choose from. Want to be a crimson cutie, a radiant ruby or a strawberry-blonde beauty? We thought so! Here are the red rules from the haircolor experts at Matrix…

1. Skin in the game. If you love to set up your friends, you know better than to introduce your hemp-wearing, hippie cousin to your fashionista best friend. When it comes to red haircolor, the right match starts with your skin. If you’re a fair, peach-skinned beauty with light eyes, choose a strawberry blonde or light copper color. If you’re fair with cool undertones, go for a medium auburn. Olive and dark complexions can rock cool reds like burgundy and violet-based reds. Not sure if your complexion is cool or warm? The answer could be in your jewelry box. If you gravitate toward gold, you’re probably warm; if you love silver, you’re on the cool side.

2. Highs and lows. Look closely at a real redhead and you’ll see lots of different shades —copper, gold, auburn. To avoid fake-looking red color, your stylist will combine several shades—perhaps a darker auburn at the roots, gradually lightening to a twinkly copper on the ends with some golden highlights thrown in here and there—just like a natural redhead!

3. Glaze over. Reds rock when they’re vibrant and intense. When they’re faded and flat… not so much. An ammonia-free formula like Matrix ColorInsider keeps reds shimmering in high definition, without damaging or drying out your hair. Plan to visit your stylist regularly for refreshing red glazing treatments to keep your new red hue at its optimum intensity!
