And, if you ask us, it’s only natural that you lean into the vibes of the season by warming up your look with one of winter’s trendiest hair colorsred-brown. If you need convincing, or want some inspo to show your colorist, keep reading. Ahead, we’ve rounded up our favorite red-brown hair looks from Instagram, plus some product recommendations so you can get and maintain the look at home. 


Our Favorite Red-Brown Hair Looks

The best part about the red-brown hair look is that it’s versatile. Whether you decide to keep things subtle or rock the hue in a bolder, more saturated way, the warm shade works no matter what. Whether you have fair, medium or dark skin tones, try weaving red brown highlights throughout your hair. This way, you can take the look for a spin without committing to dyeing your entire head of hair without testing the color first. 


Using the look below as a guide, you can dye strands of hair a warm, chestnut-like red-brown color for a final result that looks like the embers of a cozy, inviting fire. To get the look at home, grab the L’Oréal Paris Fade Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Chic Auburn Brown for an easy-to-apply permanent hair dye that lasts up to eight weeks.

If you prefer to go all out, let the look below be your inspiration for dyeing your whole head in   the spicy hue. The reddish undertones of the brown-based hair color shimmer in natural light, accentuating the subtle saturation. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Feria Hair Color in Auburn Brown, a permanent hair dye, to achieve the look at home. 


If you’re hoping to dye your hair red-brown while also covering gray hair, we recommend turning to the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Medium Reddish Brown.


How to Care for Red-Brown Dyed Hair

Anyone who has ever dyed their hair either at home or in a salon knows that caring for your hair is the key to maintaining the new color. To keep your hair color looking fresh, add  a hair toner to your hair care routine. We love the L’Oréal Paris Le Color Gloss One-Step In-Shower Toning Gloss in Auburn. This at-home toning treatment enhances color and tone, boosts shine and deeply conditions hair in just 15 minutes, leaving strands looking healthy with a hint of fresh color. Just add it to your wash day routine or use it once a week while you shower — it’s as unfussy and simple as a hair gloss gets. 


Hair dye can make hair dry, weak and fragile (especially if you’re bleaching often), so be sure to use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner that also repairs hair., The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Bond Strengthening Color Care Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Bond Strengthening Conditioner are both formulated to strengthen and smooth weak hair bonds, while protecting hair from future damage and extending the life of your hair color.
