I have never dyed my hair red before. I played with a few hair color apps and came up with these two. Which one? Doing this from my phone so it’s hard to put them in order on here. Top is my Typical brown. Then bright red. Then dark red.

I either like your natural hair color or the dark red color. the middle one seems too fake to me and I like things to look like you could actually grow it from your head. Buts thats just MHO.

@jesssamesssa: I loooove the concept of bright red, but it is a GIANT pain in the ass to maintain, so it typically ends up looking faded and flat not too long after getting it done. I voted dark red. Both would look great on you!
Here are the some red inspiration pictures I really like:

@PermaStudent: I like the top one a lot. I actually pinned that one. I tried to do several different red looka on me but I would had to purchase the app and that wasn’t gonna happen!

I love the pictures PermaStudent posted.
I’ve actually also been toying with the idea of dying my hair that same color.

I love your natural hair color.

I also love your natural color much more than the other options. However, out of the two reds, I prefer the darker one.

@jesssamesssa: well I must say I’m partial to the bright red because it’s the same color as mine!

@jesssamesssa: Start with a dark auburn if your hair is naturally brown
1) to get it that bright red, you’d probably have to bleach it, which you don’t want to do.
2) I used to dye my hair a lot. I was bright-ish red for awhile and then I went to this darker brown red that was purple when you first put it on. That color was gorgeous and much more natural looking (after the purple went away of course) and lasted longer. The red faded to a weird orange, and left pink in my hair afterwards, which leads me to…
3) red tint is a bitch to get out. Refer back to step 1. Lol I unfortunately had to go down that path (I’m naturally blonde… Thank god ombre is in while it grows out!) The less red you have, the less damage control you have to do later. Start slow, and who knows you might love it!

^^I think that might have been it. However it was from Sally’s and not from a kit, so I don’t know if kits are weaker/ come with a good conditioner etc

@jesssamesssa: Red is super hard. I would highly recommend going and getting it done by a professional at least the first time.

@wouldyoukindlyy: Oh lord, me too! Blond and red is a bad combo. I tried to go strawberry blond once, like literally it was supposed to be a medium blond with a very slight redish tinge…yeah well, I ended up with the nickname Strawberry for a year (cause it was about as red as a strawberry) and it was only semi-permanent color! I ended up giving up, bleaching, dying blond and ruining my hair only to end up with BRASSY blond. I’m ash blond. It was horrific. I will probably never color again, but if I do it definitely won’t be any kind of red!

I like the bright red, but then it’s very similar to my hair and I like obviously dyed hair. Bright red isn’t that hard to maintain, the dyes take fairly well, in is the blues, purples, pinks and greens that are a huge pain from my experience anyway. You probably wouldn’twant to due your eyebrows as the app has done.
