Hello, beautiful!

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.

Trieste Red (5NRM) is our burgundy.

I absolutely love this hair color. The color is rich and lasts a lot longer than store brands, and there is no odor. I will never buy store color again.



From russet to cinnamon, these dimensional, rich reddish brown hair shades combine the best of both worlds. The soft subtlety of warm brown with just enough red to make it spict. See if auburn hair color is right for you.

Sardinia Red (6NCG) is our auburn.

So easy to use this kit. They thought of everything and included it in the kit - shampoo/conditioner, gloves, cap, root touch up sample, even the activator bottle which has a screw top instead of requiring you to snip it with scissors. The solution is very thick so it doesn't run down your skin like store-bought colors - very nice! The color applied evenly over my hair and left it soft and smooth. On my hair it looks a bit darker than in the picture and is more red than copper. I expected the darkness because my hair takes up color very quickly but I wish the copper showed up more in the highlights. Overall it's a very flattering color and I've received a lot of compliments on it. I am fair-skinned with neutral undertones and hazel eyes which pair well with this color. I will definitely buy this again and have signed up for auto-delivery!



Like the perfect lighting, the right red hair color flatters your complexion. Even with no makeup. A timeless classic, copper hair is always a standout choice when you are looking for a sensational, eye-catching shade. See if copper hair color is right for you.

Genova Red (7NCG) is our copper.

First time to color my hair at home. I am a natural redhead & was concerned that the color would be all wrong. It is GREAT! My gray is covered and the color is beautiful. I am very pleased & can't believe how easy and accurate the color turned out! Thank you Madison Reed!

I've had many compliments, I'm super glad I decided to go for this color and this company.



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.

Have used this product a few times. Easy to apply. Everyone comments on the color. I thought when I initially chose the color it might be too dark because of my age but apparently it was a good choice because everyone says it's very complimentary and they just love it. I love it! Gentle on the scalp too. Glad I tried it. Thanks!
