I think if you’re thinking about going red, there are so many different variations of red that you or your stylist could find one that would complement your skin tone, especially if it’s paired with a highlight for dimension.

I would also suggest baby steps approaching red hair. Start with a few low lights before you jump in completely, especially if you’re on the fence because using lightener (bleach) over top of freshly colored or once’s colored red can take time to lift past that orange stage.

In my opinion, red is always trendy, it can be soft,  subtle and sophisticated or deep, bright, and show-stopping depending on the look you’re wanting to achieve. Red paired with blonde is the perfect combination.
