A dye job is never to be taken lightly. Whether you’re going bright in blond, sultry in black or all over the place in a multicolor combo, altering your hair color requires a bit of labor and a commitment to maintenance. And while certain shades garner a bit more praise than others, we must admit that red is always the color du jour.

Regardless of what your natural hue is, moving into scarlet territory is guaranteed to always turn heads and activate your inner badass. As with most hair changes, the inspiration stage is of utmost importance. And per usual, no place provides more inspo than the red carpet. If you’re thinking of tiptoeing into red hair territory, here’s a wave of celebrity looks that’ll make you want to finally take the plunge.
