You’ve played with babylights, low lights and dying your hair brown–but taking the plunge and going red is a totally new ball game and believe us, nailing the perfect shade of crimson can be harder then it looks. From burgundy tones to fiery red hues, red can be super saturated or barely-there kissed auburn. Finding the perfect shade for your skin tone and lifestyle is key, so we’ve rounded up our fave Insta redheads for mega mane inspiration along with the mane masters behind their hues so you can hop on the ginger bandwagon too.
How divine is Daisy Clementine? The rock-n-roll musician is also our mega ginger hair crush! She rocks those orange strands like no one else.

New to the redhead club is Julianne Hough–the former blonde bombshell traded her in her bleached tresses for this pretty shade of auburn and we're in love. A perfect color if you're interested in slowly inching into red hues.
