How do you achieve auburn hair?
If you do not have a natural auburn hair, you will need to go to a salon to achieve the shade that is perfect for you. Unlike some hair colors, transitioning from black to Auburn can actually be easier than when you have blonde hair. Apparently, blond hair has a hard time keeping the red color in their hair so it fades quickly. There is more maintenance involved when you go from blonde to Auburn.
What shade of Auburn is right for me?
There are so many red hues to choose from and you might feel overwhelmed when asked to pick. The good thing is that it can look good on many skin tones. Some experts have pointed out that light and dark auburn shades can look good on just about everyone. What you can do is to go for highlights first if you are hesitant on what shade you should choose. You can choose to go with a brilliant copper or perhaps go bold and choose a really bright red. It depends on what your preferences are.
What you need to make sure is that you are getting the opinion of a professional. If it is your first time to color your hair, attempting to do it by yourself can be dangerous, especially when you need to bleach and color your hair several times in order to achieve the perfect shade.
Leaving your hair in the hands of a professional is the safer choice. They are trained and have enough experience n dealing with different hair types. It may seem costly to you but remember that it will be worth it once you see your new auburn shade.
If you don’t have a regular salon that you go to, ask friends and colleagues for recommendations on where you can go. You can visit the salon first and ask about their processes. You don’t have to avail of their services right away. Choose based on how they were able to answer your queries, how comfortable you feel with them, and of course, the value for money.
What kind of maintenance is there for those with auburn hair?
Right after you get your hair colored, you must wait at least two days before you wash your hair. It’s also important that you use the right products in maintaining your hair.
If you want to keep that rich auburn shade longer, you will need to keep your shampooing to only two or three times a week. Since the tendency of auburn hair is to turn brassy when exposed to the sun for a long period of time, you may want to use some SPF to protect it from sun damage.
Also, you should look for shampoo and conditioner that is specially manufactured for redheads. This way you can keep that hair color longer.
What styles can I do for my auburn hair?
Now that you have decided that this year is the year that you turn heads with your auburn hair, here are some styles that you can do. There are so many to choose from, and you can change your style depending on the occasion.
