Trend Of The Month

Ravishing Red

Let’s crank the dial all the way to lit with our next coif color. Ruby locks are always a hot haircolor because red looks stunning on everyone! Candy apple or mahogany, and every shade in between, you have to give this coif color a try.


This merlot-colored mane will steal the show everywhere you go! Created by the Cutz Styling Team at Cutz 24-7 Barber & Beauty Salon in Kennesaw, GA, tresses through the crown are braided back into a high ponytail. Remaining hair is spun into loose waves.



Cherry curls elevate this coif from basic to brilliant. Washington, DC. stylist Alesha Greene dyed Natural tresses this eye-catching color by applying three different shades of red to lightened hair. Hair is then blown dry and styled into curls using a medium curling iron.


We love this mahogany look created by Danyel Leathers, from Cutz 24/7 Barber & Beauty Salon in Kennesaw, GA. A lace-front wig is sewn down over a braided base. “Baby hairs” are shaped with hairspray and remaining lengths are flat-ironed smooth.


Actress/singer/dancer Keke Palmer is known for her fearless and trendsetting coif choices. Here, the “Bossy” singer rocks bright crimson faux locs pulled up into a voluminous half-up ponytail with ends left loose in crinkled waves.
