Her Majesty - The Red Hair

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. 


Light red represents joy, sexuality, passion, sensitivity, and love.
Pink signifies romance, love, and friendship. It denotes feminine qualities and passiveness.
Dark red is associated with vigor, willpower, rage, anger, leadership, courage, longing, malice, and wrath.
Brown suggests stability and denotes masculine qualities.
Reddish-brown is associated with harvest and fall.



From personal experience finding the suitable red hair color is pretty damn hard.
After trying many different hair colors, I'm pretty sure that I'm close to that perfect shade.

Let's check out some of the most popular redheads in the world.

Florence Welch

Julianne Moore

Marcia Cross

Rihanna

Emma Stone

Kate Walsh

Christina Hendricks




Of cource, everything is peachy when you've got your own personal stylist. :)
What about us, the mortal ordinary people? :D


It started out with Garnier 660 Firy Pured Red.
And let me tell you, it was one hell of a red hair! I washed it out at least 4 times after the dying before I got out of home. Too red for my taste.


It continued with my hairdresser's help - AllWaves, italian hair color, brown mahogany something.
Not so bad, but quickly faded and I became to feel desperate. :(


Taking the matter into my own hands (again!) :) I tried the Palette Deluxe 667 Luminous Copper Mahogany.

And I got lucky. The shade is fantastic, long lasting, shiny, makes the hair sleek & chic.

I love it.

So here's the evolution of the shades:

and the post-vacation dehydrated poor hair, in a desperate need of some scissors. 

If you have any suggestions for good red hair color or any kind of tips, please let me know.

  11. Red is nice colour. I dyed my hair in red only once and even then only at the bottom. It was cool, but I prefer my natural colour :) Love your hair though, nice pics. Have a spectacular day,

    I love red but sadly, I can't seem to pull it off as nicely.

  13. I love the newer shade, it looks very natural red... I've never tried red before, I'm a lil scared of it actually because I've had the same color forever!
