If you saw Zendaya‘s red hair on the Emmys red carpet and screamed, you’re not alone. Her hair, previously her natural brown, was such a perfect shade of copper, it had half the Internet seriously considering a visit to the salon. Z isn’t the only one going red; in the past month or so, the shade has definitely been having a moment. Spotted both in Hollywood—a red-headed Anne Hathaway makes an appearance in the trailer for Modern Love and Zoey Deutch has flaming hair in The Politician—and online, with shades like mulled wine and peach cobbler popping off on Instagram, red hair has never been hotter.
If the changing leaves are inspiring you to switch over to the fiery side, look no further. We spoke to some of the top celebrity colorists about the best red hair colors to consider, no matter your skin tone. Some general advice: Softer peach and cinnamon look great on pale skin; deep violets and cranberries complement deep skin; and Zendaya-esque rubies and coppers look incredible on everyone. Scroll on for some inspo, and get ready to book an appointment.
