If you’ve always wanted to be a redhead but are afraid of the commitment, orchard red is your new BFF. The latest must-try shade combines a dark base and a multidimensional balayage. We have colorist Karissa Schaudt to thank for the distinctive hue that boasts copper and auburn undertones.
Since winter is the perfect season for growing out your last chop, orchard red is the ideal way to perk up your strands without cutting them. See below for some rich orchard red inspo courtesy of Instagram.
Take a subtle approach with barely-there red accents.
Dark and Dramatic
We love how the red blends into the dark base.
Orchard red is a great transitional tone because it lets you gradually go lighter. Opt for auburn highlights to really make the balayage pop.
Mull It Over
If you already have lowlights, this take is perfect since it offers a seamless blend. The low-key mulled wine shade also adds volume, making it ideal for anyone with fine strands.
