Tip 2: Get the right tone

If you’re using Renew’s Rich Auburn Mahogany, Cinnamon Red or Red Wine hair colour you need to consider how it will work with your eye colour and skin tone.

There are a wide range of reds to choose from, so you need to know exactly what you want before you start dyeing.

From Mulberry to Auburn red hair, Renew has a vast variety of shades that suit different styles.
Not to worry, Renew has a colour indicator on all it’s boxes so you can tell how your base colour is going to affect your final look.

Tip 3: It’s all about that base

Here’s a hot pro tip - If your base hair colour is darker, then the transition to Auburn hair will be a little smoother.

“Auburn is a balance of red and brown hair. Renew’s Rich Auburn Mahogany will give your style the best of both worlds.”

Have a light base colour? Don’t fear! The pigment in blonde hair makes the red hair colour fade a little faster than usual. The simple solution to this is to make sure that you retouch your colour regularly. This is a great way to avoid this problem and lets you stay glam for longer.

Tip 4: Maintenance

Hair guru, Aura Freidman, reminds us that while red hair may be gorgeous, there’s a lot of maintenance required to get the most out of the look.
"The problem with red is that it fades, and sometimes when it does, it's not the most flattering. It's a lot of maintenance but so worth it.”

Let’s unpack Freidman’s wise words a little more with these pro tips to keeping your hair red. Fewer washes will slow down the red from fading. Instead of washing your hair every day, alternate with dry shampoo that’s designed for colour treated hair.
Another tip is to hydrate your hair with the correct conditioners to keep your red locks feeling silkier and smoother. If you’re using a straightener or a curler daily then your hair might look red hot, but the heat could be stripping it of its colour.
Instead, why not experiment with some non-heat hairstyles to keep your red locks looking hotter for longer.
