Fiery Red Hair is So Hot Right Now

I'm not sure if it's the same for you, but orange tones are literally lighting up our Instagram feed right now. This year's fiery reds are taking the world by storm, and honestly, there is nothing hotter in our books. Not only are the warmer hues perfect for cheering us through the last few chilly weeks of winter, but the coppery reds are a hint of the bright summer days on the way.


If we've sparked your interest - before you run out and trade out your dark blonde highlights for this new trend, make sure you are prepared to commit. Red is the most difficult colour to maintain and even harder to cover. There is nowhere to hide from the regrowth, particularly the brighter, bolder reds, which means regular upkeep and visits to the salon to cover the roots and freshen up your colour.

Another tip, make sure you choose a colour safe, sulphate free shampoo to maintain colour vibrance at home. 


If you're ready to take the plunge and have some fun this season, be sure to save some pics of the exact red you're after to show your hairdresser. Because red is not just red, there are so many different tones, so you want to be sure you don't end up with auburn when you actually meant cherry. Colour tones can be pretty subjective to untrained mere mortals like us.

Take a look at some of our favourites below for inspo.


The only thing more traffic stopping than a fiery red mane is a super thick and uber lush fiery red mane. And the quickest, easiest way to achieve all that extra volume that'll get tongues wagging is with Medusa hair extensions
