Red hair colour has never been hotter and even more so with the world being inspired by the lively wash of red hair by the title character in Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit.  In fact, Gigi Hadid and sister Bella recently made the switch from their natural colours to different tones of gorgeous reds. Who can blame them? Its the coolest colour to try now! In fact, you need not worry about how it’s going to look at you at all.

Red can look great on everyone. It’s just a matter of finding the right shade for your complexion and style. Plus everything from strawberry tones to fire-engine reds can be adjusted or customised to enhance your natural beauty. All you really need is a really good conversation with your stylist to figure out what can work best with your existing base colour. There really is no wrong way to adapt to this trend. So, before you get on the phone, take a look at our roundup below for some hair inspo and take it with you to your next hair appointment.

Scroll below to check out some of the coolest ways to wear red hair this season:

1. Ginger Snap

Gigi Hadid delighted us with her brand new ginger locks which she debuted on the runway at the Versace show earlier this month.

2. Two-Toned Face-Framing Streaks

Unlike her sister, Bella Hadid went for two-toned front streaks instead of a whole head of red. Also known as money-piece highlights or E-girl streaks, these two-trends together make for a winning combo.

3. Dark Auburn Red

Great for those with darker-toned hair, amp up the classic auburn shade with more red tones than brown. Keep it dark and you’ve got a wearable colour for any occasion.

4. Cinnamon Spice

This is the perfect way to slowly ease your way into the red hair trendSome ribbons of red-brown hues will warm up dark hair and can really add a subtle pop making it feel fresh 

5. Mermaid Red

If you really want something dreamy go with a deep crimson shade and you’ll be channelling mermaid vibes like Kylie Jenner here in no time.

6. Fire-engine Red

 Not sure how bold you want to go? Keep your base a deep crimson shade and blend in some fire-engine red highlights and face-framing tendrils for a super trendy look.

7. Berry Tones

For something cooler, try a red wine or deep cranberry shade rather than light ginger or orange copper tones that could look brassy.

8. Copper Sunset

The warmth of this sunset-toned shade adds a glow to dark hair while staying in the copper family and without looking too heavy. It maintains a light natural feel and looks fantastic on medium and deep complexions.
