Hair Artist @ Brian Charles Hair Studio in Austin, TX

What would you say about this style?

I love the way that the bright colors are a perfect match against the layers in the hair. The copper-colored tones of the shadow of the root blend beautifully with the sun-kissed blonde, adding sparkle and contrast. The beach wave look is simple, but refined and elegant. The style gives the look motion while highlighting the highlights of balayage.

Do you have any suggestions for someone who is thinking about the idea?

This red balayage hair shade is ideal for a woman working full time who does not want a hairstyle that is incredibly complicated. A woman who would like to have more brightness and dimension through her ends and mids. I’m able to create these add-on pieces to match any shape of face! Multidimensional tones work well for all types of skin and can be easily customized to suit the majority of clients’ preferences and needs. They will naturally fade beautifully and last between 8 and 12 weeks. Therefore, it’s only the foundation color that has to be refreshed as well as some gloss added at the end. Red tones fade very quickly so proper care is essential! Kerastase Chromatique Shampoo and conditioner keeps it in good health and keep the color intact between visits. The way you style this look gives it its punch and the products are the main ingredient. Kevin Murphy’s Bedroom texture spray is the perfect product for giving her that smooth beach waves that we’re looking for. It is recommended that she be relaxed and comfortable curling her hair loosely to achieve the desired look for the beach waves.

It’s also great for someone seeking to have fun without having to endure excessive damage to their hair. If you’re considering this style, be aware that it could fade quickly due to it being part of the red/violet color family. A great tip for washing is to use water that is cooler, this can aid in fading. Always apply a color-protecting wash and conditioner! A color depositing shampoo or conditioner can greatly extend the color. If you’re looking to keep the color it’s best to check in every 4-6 weeks to get it renewed. This color looks fantastic on all skin tones, particularly olive! It’s extremely versatile with regards to hairstyles, it looks amazing curly, straight or even braided!

The advantage of elevating the hair to level 9-10 is that it helps to prepare the way for a variety of other colors following.

Blonde and Red Balayage

Q&A with the style creator, Amy Hitchcock

Color Specialist @ Furtado Studio in Quincy, IL

What would you say about this style?

A color melt of red velvet is actually four distinct reds, ranging from the darkest to the lightest. The application took place over two sessions to avoid the blonde staining. The red application was done to damp hair to ensure melting and easy saturation.

Do you have any suggestions for someone who is thinking about the idea?

It’s ideal if you’re blonde. The blonde shade is the most difficultto lift hair to the desired height and before adding the red. Be aware that blonde and red shades require more attention. It is essential to apply a professional Shampoo and refresh the color each 4 to 6 weeks, as the color fades.

This kind of balayage is perfect for people who already have auburn or red shades in their hair however they would like to add some depth without causing too much to detract of the natural red.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering this?

This look is ideal for people with medium or thick hair. This type of balayage may last for three to four months, with maintaining of one glaze or toner every 6-8 weeks. Blonded-out beach waves are my absolute favorite. They’re easy and last for a few days. For the longest hair I’d suggest shoulder length or even longer. You will never be disappointed with an excellent dry texture spray for the beachy style.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering the idea?

The look is totally customizable. If you’re unsure about it, begin by using small, subtle lighting, and then you can go by adding more! Red may be overwhelming for some , but go slowly and you’ll be able to enjoy it!

Auburn Red Balayage

#20: Auburn Red Balayage

Q&A with stylist, Rachel Wittenberg

Owner & Stylist @ Paramount Salon/Spa in Temecula, CA

What would you say about this style?

This is a multi-tonal copper/auburn-colored melt. To create this look we applied an ethereal root smudge using warmer hue that her normal (4nw) and then painting the rooted area through the midsections in certain regions and to the ends of other areas (5c+5cb as well as 7c) to add the illusion of depth and dimension. To finish the ends and into the midsections, I applied thinner color of copper (8c) to finish its multi-tonal melting. To show off the variation in color, we decided to curl it in a soft “beachy” curly. For the preparation of her hair, we applied the texturizer spray which has the ability to protect against heat. So we get some holding, protection from color as well as a bit of additional grit. After curling, we added another coat of this spray to give the hold as well as volume. The longer layers of her hair offer the perfect amount of lift and movement to her style , without appearing rough or choppy. The elevation is high and the steep angle allows for soft layers that will hold the weight towards the ends to make it as strong as is possible, while still allowing to create a large amount of layers. This creates the volume as well as “bounce” for waves of beachy curls.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering this?

I would suggest looking at the amount of time and energy you need to put into keeping your look warmer. While modern technology for hair coloring has advanced but any copper or reds tend to fade quite quickly. Be sure to apply high-quality color-care products at home to maintain your favorite color. Discuss with your stylist whether your desired hair color is suitable for your complexion and eye color. You have (luckily) many options for warm hues – so do your homework and ensure you feel at ease with the colorist. If you’re not a fan of having frequent visits to the salon you might want to consider gold tone or copper with a longer life over the other reds which tend to fade after four weeks. Think about the surface that you’re applying the color is also important. Are you wearing lighter or more ash-toned hair? It’s most likely to fade more quickly than applying it to hair that has a more intense shade or a warmer tone. Redheads are fun to wear and have the feisty appearance, whether real or not. I would suggest you choose the right color for you personally and have fun! Just make sure you use protection (UV protection, heat protection, color-safe shampoo/conditioner, red/copper enhancing conditioner, etc. )!

Bright Red Balayage Highlights

#21: Bright Red Balayage Highlights

The vibrant bright red color is uplifting and fun. The most appealing aspect about this shade is that it offers the richness, depth and brightness in one! Create depth by using natural tones that are at the base. Lighten the hair to ensure that when Joico Intensity color is added to the overall red, you’ll be able to choose from a range of tones. Find a stylist that can do the best job with shades on tone of hair in red. This shade would be ideal for people with fair skin , or eyebrows that are deep due to the intensity of this color. You should be ready to impress people with the brightness and are also willing to be committed to maintaining. Fashion-conscious women with vibrant shades shouldn’t wash more than three times per week. Buy colors-safe, color-extending and color-safe shampoos. They are also admirers of shampoo with dry hair!

Dark Red on Dark Hair

#22: Dark Red on Dark Hair

Q&A session with style designer, Grace L. Kim

Hair & Makeup Artist @ Studio 19 in Schaumburg, IL

What do you think of this style?

What I like about this shade is the way the brighter red is reflected in the the mahogany curls of her hair. My gorgeous client is naturally wavy-textured hair, and she wanted the more vivid red of her vibrantly colored and deep mahogany hair. Therefore, I decided to design striking red pieces that would enhance her hair and to contrast the more dark red. The colors that flow like this work well with a hairstyle which gives body. So I created layers of medium length and plenty of texture.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering this?

Reds should be always vibrant! The red pigments in hair generally fade quickly and turn dull if you do not maintain your hair. This means you should use color-safe professionally-made shampoos, conditioners and styling products. The type of products you are using and how often you wash your hair, it will determine the length of time that vibrancy and shine of your hair’s appearance will endure. I recommend that you refresh your hair by visiting your hairdresser every six to eight weeks. My client works in an industry that is not creative which is why this color permits her to enjoy a bright red without overpowering her.

Brunette and Red Balayage

#23: Brunette and Red Balayage Hair

Q&A session with style creator Veronica Hellesland

Hairstylist @ Hair by Kiesler in Tolvsrod, Norway

What would you say about this style?

This vivid red is a versatile red. I made an balayage blonde for this client a while ago and she is now looking for something more striking. I kept her natural hairstyle as well as used various reds based on the location of the light to add more depth. I like the way she can wear her hair in a bob and then back to make it appear natural, and then when she is ready to show off her hair, she can let it down. I think that waves add the depth and the intensity of the shade.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering the idea?

I’d suggest keeping in mind that this color is very maintenance-intensive. It’s best to touch it up every now and again. I always advise my customers to apply a quality conditioner and shampoo that preserves color. The use of too hot styling tools can cause the color to fade more quickly. Last but not least should you be thinking about going for it, do it! Colors can be exciting.
