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 love it. I did think it was going to have more brown in it. It seems to be just red. But getting a lot of compliments that people love the color.

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.

I was skeptical about trying this hair color brand; after all, why buy a product online that is more expensive than what I can buy in the store? But I finally decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! This is the prettiest shade of red, so rich and vibrant! It's much better than what I have bought in stores, and it seems to me that the color lasts longer, too (a big plus for red hair color). Yes, it costs more, but the color is beautiful and I love how the kit has everything you need and more. If I could change one thing, it would be to tone down the fragrance. While it is much more pleasant than other hair colors I've used before, the fragrance is very strong. Other than that, I love this!

Pretty dark red color but not for me. It's more auburn than copper.

Dark Red

As delicious as red velvet cake. This crave-worthy rock star hair color draws plenty of attention. Leave your roots natural to amp up the style and saturate red ends and mid-lengths as deeply as you dare. See if dark red hair color is right for you.

Portofino Red (6NRR) is our dark red hair color.

The kit comes with everything you need and is easy to use. The color is beautiful and it makes your hair look and feel silk. It covers my gray and is just or even better than the Salon. I would recommend Madison Reed and this color in particular. I might try other colors as well.

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.

Beautiful, rich, warm color. Great reddish-gold highlights. Terrific with fair, 51 year old complexion and blue eyes.

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.
