Ginger Spice Hair Is Majorly Trending This Fall (Here’s How to Wear It)
Whether you’re a blonde who is looking to amp up your color for fall or a brunette who wants to brighten up your strands without bleach, ginger spice hair is a trend for all. Scroll ahead for some inspiration to bring to your stylist.
Add auburn babylights
According to Tracey Cunningham (the mastermind behind both Emma Stone and Zoey Deutch’s signature red hair), the key to getting a natural-looking red is to weave in multiple colors using super-fine highlights rather than dyeing it all one shade.
Blend your roots
For a subtler take on the trend, keep your roots au natural and add some auburn highlights through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, focusing on the strands closest to your face.
Try a glaze
Calling all ladies with curls and coils: Consider a copper glaze. It’s a safer way to lighten up your look without having to lift the base color.
Lift and tone
Ginger spice is nice to all—even those with naturally dark hair. To replicate model Irene Kim’s rich auburn, ask your colorist to lift your base shade to a slightly paler brown before adding a mix of golden red tones on top.
Protect your color
A final note: Make sure to get thee a sulfate-free shampoo. Red is one of the quickest colors to fade depending on how often you wash and heat style your hair. Suds up with a gentle cleanser to keep your ginger strands shiny.
