This hair color is a wonderful amalgamation of bright red highlights over a brownish red base. The highlighted bangs on the forehead make the look really dramatic. While this color can be sported by straight or curly haired women, the bangs would look good only on straight hair, to show off the play of colors from the highlights. Make sure that the fringe that frames your face is colored crimson for maximum effect. Stay clear from this look if you have pink undertones in your skin.

Make sure to use a lot of color friendly conditioner if you want to go in for this hair color.

Is it even remotely possible to ignore a hair color as ravishing as this one? If you have the attitude to rock this look, then go in for it and make heads turn. To style your long hair, you can go in for layers that start at the shoulder level and increase in length. Curl your hair in soft waves and let them tumble down your shoulders. If you have a medium or tan complexion, then go in for straighter hair with lots of shine. If you are pale, then you can consider getting waves done like the model above to tone down the color by adding texture to the hair.
