21 Amazing Dark Red Hair Color Ideas

Red hair is always in fashion and although the shade of red might change, the color itself is in style every season. Do you remember the bright pillar-box reds Rihanna was rocking just a few years back?

Well, since then the red look has come a long way and for spring and summer 2019, these dark red hair color ideas are definitely the ones to watch out for.

One of the best things you can do with a red hair look is to create a balayage style which is essentially hand-painted highlights.
