Bored of your current hair color? Whether you’re tired of sporting the hair hue you were born with, or are ready for a change after a previous at-home hair coloring session, we know just the thing. Why not revamp your beauty look by swapping your shade for a bold red hair color? From brilliant burgundy to vibrant ruby, there are plenty of red hair color options to choose from, and each one will leave you looking stunning and feeling confident. Keep clicking, because we’re revealing the best bold red hair colors from the L’Oréal Paris Féria Power Reds collection for every skin tone. But first, find out how to color your hair at home using Féria Power Reds.
Ready to become a redhead? First things first, you’ll need to choose your color. The Power Reds line takes red to the next level with 5 high-intensity reds to choose from, each of which you’re bound to love. But seriously, you might struggle to choose just one to use. Thankfully, we can help with that—you’ll find the right red for your skin tone on one of the subsequent slides.
Once you have your preferred color in hand (we recommend picking up two boxes just in case, if you happen to have very long or thick hair), you’ll need to do a little prep work. Make sure your hair is free of styling product and tangles, which could impede the dyeing process. Change out of your favorite outfit and into something that can get messy, then it’s time to dye.
To use your bold red boxed dye, you’ll want to closely follow the instructions included in the box. Don’t wing it! If you do things right, the color boosting technology will amp up your color for a boosted, bold red that will have everyone checking out your color.
Beyond your hair care, take a look at the way you style your new hair color. Red hair looks absolutely gorg when paired with natural texture, so give your heat tools a rest and embrace your waves or curls! Simply spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto towel-dried hair and let your strands dry for a pretty, beachy look—no ocean required.
Fair skin tends to pair very well with vibrant red hair colors due to the drastic but gorgeous contrast. A deep red shade looks gorgeous against pale skin since it instantly makes the wearer's features pop. Doesn’t that sound nice? If you’re nodding in agreement, go ahead and pick up a box of the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Red Velvet, which has a stunning deep auburn hue.
With slightly golden undertones, medium skin looks amazing with rich, warm-toned shades of red. Don’t opt for a super dark or ultra-light shade, instead choose a hair color that’s somewhere in the middle—just like your skin tone. The L’Oréal Paris Féria in Ruby Rush, which has a natural, true-red look, is a perfect fit.
Deciding on the perfect hair color can be a challenge for those with olive skin tones, but don’t fret, there’s a beautiful shade of red that suits you too. An all-out cherry red hair color will be oh so flattering in combination with your neutral, olive complexion. To switch up your look and try cherry hair on for size, use the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Cherry Crush.
When you think of red hair, your thoughts might immediately jump to fire-engine hues. But when it comes to pairing red hair with dark skin, you’ll want to opt for more blue-based reds to ensure your new hair will suit your skin tone. That means a burgundy shade will look gorgeous next to your dark skin. And yes, there’s an at-home hair color you can use. Dye your strands with the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Blowout Burgundy.
Red hair colors that work wonderfully across all skin tones are few and far between—but they do exist. If you aren’t sure how to describe your skin tone—or like to totally transform it with self-tanner from time to time—you may want to stick with a shade that’s universally flattering. Can’t think of a red hue that could possibly qualify? Well, you must not be considering pumpkin spice hair as an option.
What once was just the most basic coffee order ever has now entered into the hair color space. But when it comes to hair, this hue is anything but ordinary. If you’re looking for a spicy orange undertone for your first foray into being a redhead, this is the hair color for you. To get the look at home, you can use the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Power Copper.
