BEAUTY BAR: Seeing Red

Unconventional hair colors have been grazing the pages of Pinterest and taking over the curls and chignons of celebrities and Fashionistas alike. Whether it’s the pastel hues of spring or the bolder shades of fall, the hair color spectrum has definitely evolved from just variations of red, blonde and brunette.

This Fashionista’s fiery red color is absolutely eye-catching. Her short hair keeps the bright hue from being blinding or overwhelming. As a rule, bolder colors such as red, emerald green or electric blue are best complemented by short, sleek haircuts, while pastel or lighter hues work well with both long and short cuts.

Whether you’ve been lusting after Irene Kim’s ultraviolet bob or Nicole Richie’s cotton candy-pink locks, summer is the perfect time to finally try the unconventional hair color trend.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? This bold beauty look can instantly be recreated by heading to your trusted stylist and getting your hair bleached and colored. If you’re more of a do-it-yourself gal (or guy), you can absolutely achieve the same look in a few simple steps with a handful of amazing products. First, bleach your hair with a product such as L’Oreal’s Quick Blue Powder Lightener. Next, color with one of Manic Panic‘s attention-grabbing dyes. Keep your shade vibrant by using color protecting products such as Marula’s Intensive Repair shampoo and conditioner. Coloring can do quite a number on your hair, so a weekly treatment such as ALTERNA Haircare’s Color Protection Rehab Deep Hydration Masque can really save your locks from looking and feeling damaged.
