Red hair is where it’s at this year – and it’s about time dark-skinned beauties hopped on the bandwagon too! Yes, red hair can look incredible with dark skin [link to 12.18.8], especially if you use the right products and the right tones. Glitz is glamour but don’t overdo the golden hues which can look a little OTT on darker skin. Instead, stick to a red with bluish undertones.

Here’s how to get the red-hot red hair look with the help of ultra-luxurious Redken Color Gels Lacquers.


What are Redken Color Gels Lacquers?


These hair lacquers are permanent liquid colours that provide the same care and shine as the brand’s well-loved Shades EQ. They’re the perfect choice for African hair, promising low ammonia, locked-in saturation and superior softness.

So many colours to experiment with


Redken Color Gels Lacquers come in 57 gorgeous shades, many of which are reds. The great news is - if you’re looking for an understated copper-red or a va-va-voom bold, fire-engine red, the Redken product line can deliver.


More benefits


Not only do Redken Color Gels Lacquers help you to embrace the red hair trend, they also effortlessly cover up greys. Plus, since it’s liquid colour, you can use it to achieve a variety of other hot hair trends like root-smudging and colour-melting.

So, go for it! You’re bound to feel fiercer than you ever have before.
