Trend Of The Month: Lady In Red
Let’s heat things up with a bright and fun new coif color! Red will always be a hit because of how amazing it looks on rich, deep skin tones. If you’ve never rocked red before there’s no better time then now! Get inspired by these haute manes.

This bright orange lob (long bob) is fire! Natural hair is shaved down on both sides and then tinted a bright orange. Stylist Akilah Walker, from Lanham, MD, created custom red-orange extensions and bonded them on before snipping them into a blunt cut. 

A hint of red is all this colorful mane needs to standout. Deep brunette Natural hair is adorned with a few shades of scarlet hand-dyed extensions to amp it up. Hairdresser Lekeisha Pipkin, from Charisma Beauty Institute in Fayetteville, NC, used a Marcel iron for the texture. 

Red color peeks out of the crown for this haute hairstyle. Relaxed tresses are lifted and tinted using a semi-permanent crimson color all over with sections in the crown lifted a bit longer for a more vibrant color pop. Brava to hair stylist Deedra McLeod, of Beautiful U Hair Salon in Hartsville, SC, for this look! 

Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas teamed up with the wig pros at RPG Show for this gorgeous look. The Amber unit is a stunner with a copper color, especially pulled up into this half-up, half-down look.
