With the new year on the horizon, have you been thinking of shifting your mane shade? And would that new hair hue be in the red family? Before you dial up your colorist (or do a DYI coloring session at home) keep these three mane rules in mind:

  1. Select the right red. From scarlet to strawberry to auburn, there’s a red that’s right for you. Enlist the expertise of your colorist to help you go through hair swatches to pick the color that flatters you most. And, keep in mind you will have to adjust your makeup a bit…as with all hair color changes.
  2. Red fades fast. So, you’ll want to arm yourself with color-deposit shampoos and conditioners to help maintain that brilliant and bright hue in between coloring appointments.
  3. Test drive the hue! Before committing to the color, slip on a wig and give the shade a style spin…That’s what superstar Queen Latifah (pictured here) did for her new role on the upcoming series “Star!” And no one can deny she looks red-hot!
