Dyeing brown hair red If you’re after a shade that’s more than two shades lighter than your existing colour, such as a vibrant copper or warm blonde, you’ll need to bleach your hair before dyeing it red.
How light does your hair have to be to dye it red?
Red hair can range from light to dark, just like brown and blonde hair. For example, if you have medium-brown hair, then look for a medium shade of red. This way, you won’t have to bleach your hair. If you have black or very dark brown hair, you may have to bleach your hair to some extent to achieve the true red color.

What skin tone is best for red hair?

Can you go from brown to red hair without bleach?
That means going red is possible without bleach — but only if your strands are virgin. “You can do a single process using permanent dye on virgin brunette hair and it would pick up the color,” Jaxcee says. On strands that are super dark, she recommends using a 30-volume developer with a customized red color mixture.
How hard is it to dye hair red?
Red is a feisty color to contend with: The pigment can be tricky to maintain, so it may need more upkeep than your usual shade. But it’s not the easiest color to achieve, especially if you’re dyeing your hair at home.
Can you dye your hair to look like a natural redhead?
No. While vibrant red hair colors are interesting, they don’t look natural, and if you’re trying to look like a natural redhead, they just won’t do.
