31 Best Red Ombre Hair Color Ideas

Ombre is still trending guys!  If you are changing your hair, forget about having the standard highlights, go for ombre hair.  Ombre hair has been around for a few years now and it is still going strong.  Many celebrities love this hairstyle and we do too.  It is a way to show off your style and character with colours you love.  A low maintenance hairstyle that looks great for many months.

When Ombre first appeared it was a lot brighter and the contrast between the two colours were a lot bolder but nowadays, people are opting for their own Ombre style and this may be subtle or bold.  It doesn’t have to be a bright and shocking red colour to look amazing.  If you like the natural red copper colours, then this will work as well as the bright colours.  You hair can be transformed by adding Ombre to your hairstyle and the ends of your hair will seem thicker and healthier.

We have 31 of the best looking red ombre hair colours for you to think about.

Burgundy red and blonde work so well together.  Before we saw this photo, we weren’t too sure about the two colours together, but after seeing this, we are in love!  The darker burgundy roots looks fab and with the blonde tips, just finishes the look.

Whilst most of these Ombre hairstyles consist of two colours, you could always add a third.  There are no rules to say it has to be two colours, so why not.  We would suggest that you try to keep to the reds when having a red colour.  This way you will keep to the warm tones.  Here you can see black, red and purple blended together.  These colours work so well.  The base is black with a hint of purple whilst the ends are red.  We think this is a fierce and gorgeous style!

12. Dark Red to Peachy Blonde Ombre

This is a slightly lighter base to consider.

Your roots can be any colour you wish.  This is a dark red with peachy ends.  The dark red is as dark as the others on here and the lighter colour is introduced sooner down the hair.

13. Dark Brown to Dark Red Ombre

Many people don’t like to dye their entire head.

We understand this as hair maintenance can be hard to maintain and dyeing your hair often, will cause hair damage and create split ends.  Having an ombre style will help to add the colour you desire but a low maintenance style.  This is a dark brown mixed with a dark red shade.  You can see the gorgeous effect the dark red forms and this is not dyeing your whole head.  You will still have healthy hair just with a bit of colour.

14. Black to Dark Cherry Red Ombre

Black hair is always a good base for Ombre hair.

If you are naturally dark haired, you have a head start, excuse the pun!  Your roots will be dark for a start and this means the hairstyle will last a lot longer before you have to dye it again.  Mixing black with a dark cherry red colour, looks stunning.

15. Dark Red and Blonde Ombre

Pastel reds are trending.

Ombre hair works with long or short hair but the longer hair you have, the longer you can wait to introduce the Ombre colour.  This style waits quite far down the hair for the Ombre red colour, which we love.  By doing this, your darker hair will frame your face and if you prefer to have darker hair, you will love it.  You still have the colour at the ends.

27. Dark to Bright Red Balayage Ombre

This can be a tricky style to achieve if you dye your own hair.

28. Copper Red to Blonde Ombre Hair
