Doesnt Kirsten look hot with her new colour?
Ready for action!
Australian Hairdresser of the Year, Shane Henning says, “Red-heads are strong and independent. They have their own style and know how to stand out in the crowd. According to Shane, “this season’s hottest colours are Titian Copper Red or Cherry Red. As coloured red hair can fade really fast, it’s important to top up regularly and helps if you use colour boosting shampoos and conditioners.”

If you’re thinking of going red, there are some basic beauty rules you need to follow to ensure the rest of you matches your new do! For soft and perfectly toned eyebrows, try PureBrow Colour in Auburn by jane iredale, which helps tame wild hairs and create a gorgeous, full eyebrow. Celeste Jackson, jane iredale National Educator recommends that “users lightly stroke onto brows to add colour or a highlight, giving the appearance of darker, stronger brows”. Now your eyebrows are in check, it’s time to pull your lips into line, literally. Take the nourishing lessons we learnt with our hair and apply them to the lip using jane iredale’s Lip Definer in Crimson. This gorgeous dual-purpose Lip Pencil is made with conditioning oils and waxes, and when followed up with jane iredale’s PureMoist Lip Colour in Carrie the two become the real power couple!
For a naturally flushed look to suit any redhead, add a swirl or two of Benefit Sugarbomb over cheeks.
