Just for fun, I’ve been trying on red celebrity hair. I’ve been laughing, and gasping in horror. It’s terribly entertaining. If you want to try it out, click here.
I’m due for a hair cut and color, and after my last color fiasco, I’m heading to the salon. I thought I’d think about updating my color. I was born with carrot red hair. By the time I was 6-year-old and in first grade, it was a dark auburn. At 12-years-old, I had chestnut brown hair, with lots of natural red highlights. Since I was born with red hair, and have spent most of my life with natural red highlights, I think I have the coloring to pull off red quite well. I had to “try” on the hair color to see if I was right. Here’s what I got.
Looking at all the shades of red, there are some that are out of the running. I can’t pull off Nicole Kidman’s strawberry blond color, and although I love Christina Hendrick’s red, it’s a bit much for me. I’d have to commit to getting my roots touched up every 4 weeks if I went with Kate Walsh’s color. I love it, but I’m not sure I can afford it right now. So the darker reds, and Julia Robert’s red are looking more and more doable right now.
So tell me, do you color your own hair, or do you go to the salon? Is your color high maintenance, or can you let it go for a while in between colorings? Are you picky about your hair, or is it just something you deal with? Do you stick close to your natural color, or do you dye it the color you should have been born with?
Let me know if you try InStyle’s Hollywood Makeover tool. If nothing else, it’s great for a laugh! I suppose I could always be a blond.
