Hair Color Now

Trend Of The Moment
Red-Hot Hues
Take your look to the next level this season with a splash of color. Nothing screams sexy like fiery, red locks that are the perfect balance between naughty and nice.

Stand out with a crimson color in this silhouette that’s guaranteed to turn heads. Locs are shaded with a two-toned red hue in a sassy updo that’s perfect for a day at the office or a night out on the town. 
BOLD BABE Turn up the heat with scarlet strands in an edgy short snip that shows off your unique style. Hair is shaded a bold crimson hue with lighter shades of raspberry peeking throughout the front for a show-stopping effect.
COPPER COUTURE Be a trendsetter with a fierce color statement. Cherry-hued strands glisten as they fall from the crown into a chin length snip. The pop of platinum in the front is the perfect contrast for this unforgettable style.  



Jada Pinkett-Smith isn’t a newcomer to looking fierce and her sexy tresses prove that. The actress on Fox-TV’s Gotham steals the show with her pixie cut accented with crimson highlights running through a sweeping fringe.
