Radiant Red Hair Color Ideas from Madison Reed

More than any other color, the reds have the power to transform your look. Classic fiery copper hair channels energy and attention like an electrical charge. Softer waves of amber and auburn hair color are less bold, but just as beautiful. To turn your look up to eleven, try a deep, rich dark red or burgundy. These super-saturated jewel tones are a bit more edgy and iconoclastic.

From light, to bright, to dark — red hair color is a beautiful way to amplify your look. Choosing the right hair shade for your complexion transforms ordinary color into a show-stopping statement, even if it is just a few strategically placed ribbons of color to warm things up. Check out our red hair color ideas below for your next inspiration!


Subtle with a surprising twist. This bold gem tone adds a rich, modern dimension to your hair color, shimmering at the slightest hint of light. It works beautifully as all over color or as a striking way to highlight darker hair.

Rimini Garnet (5RV) is our burgundy.

Wow,I just put this color on and it is beautiful. I've used Porofino and Sardinia for a couple years and was getting a bit bored with the color.You 50 and 60yo women understand, we MISS our beautiful red of the younger days. I'm not afraid to try another color and the pictures show what it will do with a faded red color. It is different but I quite like it and will probably stay with it.

Lovely color, applied easily, the end result was even, and for someone with sensitive skin I had no issues at all with how it felt while processing. My only wish is that I could add a copper booster for an extra intense look! This is however a beautiful natural copper/red tone that I will happily use again!

Love it! When the sun hits it is like a vibrant burgundy yet it is subtle enough and has a nice brown base to fade to brown vs looking fried. I will definitely buy again.

The best of both worlds. This rich hair color is natural, but kicked up a notch combining everything good about both red and brown hues. With gorgeous redwood tones, this shade is a perfect luxe enhancement. See if mahogany hair color is right for you.

Firenze Brown (6NMG) is our mahogany.

Madison-reed has a great product here! I used my color and had no itching or scalp burning. It smelled great and I did not feel like my hair was being damaged by this product. I lived the color, but would have preferred a little more red. The highlights were very pretty. I'm into my fourth week now, and from the beginning I had wished it had covered my grey's better. I definitely need to color again now, as my greys are in full bloom!

Want blonde hair?

Blonde color runs the gamut from natural to striking. Ashy platinum shades like Roma Blonde deliver rock-star cool. Neutral blondes, like Capri Blonde, are easy to maintain and grow out. And ultra-warm honey blondes, like Sicily Blonde, are more on-trend than avocado toast.


Want brown hair?

Brunette shades are so versatile, not to mention flattering on almost everyone. You can easily go darker, get highlights, or tint red, so they’re a great option for anyone feeling indecisive (raises hand). Discover dark hair color ideas like Torino Brown, so-light-it’s-almost-bronde Lucca Light Brown, and everything in between.
