Cherry hair colour: 3 ideas to make your hair pop: woman with messy red bun

We’re cheering for cherry hair colour! This bold shade has got us all fired up, so we consulted Estefanía Rigo, Spanish Redken stylist for her hot take on the top ways to make your strands pop! Move over conventional hair colours, cherry hair colour is making a splash!


Look 1: Black cherry hair colour crush

We’re loving this look of cherry highlights combined with a darker base to make this stunning black cherry hair colour look come alive! “My favourite way to wear cherry hair is with balayage or Californian highlights. These techniques add a trendy touch to a bold colour,” raves Rigo. Paired with these gorgeously loose curls, this is how you make a statement with your hair and rock cherry hair colour like a pro!

Look 2: Chocolate cherry hair colour

How gorg is this chocolate cherry hair colour combo? This delectable shade, combined with a chic style like an afro, is the ideal way to change things up for summer, and bring a little (or a lot) of colour into your life. “Chocolate cherry hair colour is daring. This warm shade represents ambition and bravery and says a lot about the person who wears it. Thanks to tailored colour services, your stylist can help you find the right shade for your skin tone,” says the stylist. We’re all about personalisable shades done right!

Look 3: Red cherry hair colour with highlights

For something more subtle, try red cherry hair colour with highlights. This unique play on strawberry blonde is as bright as it is beautiful. Make your fruity flavour last by using the right products and following the best advice. “To maintain your cherry hair colour, I recommend washing your hair with an acid shampoo which keeps the colour vibrant, like Redken Colour Extend Magnetics”, suggests Rigo. “I also advise going back to the salon between colourations to correct the colour. While there, you can have the Redken Shades EQ hair gloss service to maintain your colour to keep it vibrant and shiny”, she adds. This’ll keep your cherry hair colour looking ripe and healthy!

With cherry hair colour, you’ll be singing I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb all night long!

Every stylist should know the answers to these questions

We all want to know what products to use for our hair worries, the dos and don’ts, and whether our habits are helping or harming our hair. Every professional stylist should have the knowledge about the effect our habits and the products we use have on hair, and if they don’t, it might be time to widen your circle and find one you’re comfortable handing over your precious hair to. Brand educators Terry Bloem (Matrix) and Richard Nienaber (Redken) let us in on the essential questions that every stylist should know how to answer
