Red is a dreamy hair color that steals the show before it even starts. If you’re a natural redhead, you know your hair journey will never be boring. You can always play with the shades of red, adding some warmth and vibrancy to your locks. The problem is when it’s time for some major color transformation, not every hairstylist is ready to take up the challenge.
For the hair pro @mallorydoesyourhair, her client’s wish is above all, so she doesn’t hesitate when this natural redhead asks for some pops of blonde. “As if I have the right to prevent people from expressing themselves simply because they were born with a specific hair color,” she explains. Still, some people on TikTok disagree, claiming that the hairstylist should refuse service to any natural redhead because their hair color is extremely rare.
Adding blonde highlights to natural red hair is a tricky task. The hairstylist chooses the technique that allows her to enhance and maintain the client’s natural hair color because it complements her skin tone.
She opts for a so-called surface painting – the coloring method when the hair dye is applied on the upper layer so that the original hair tone appears from underneath. The hair professional also leaves big pockets of depth throughout the process for a perfect blend of colors.
The top section and the bangs take less pigment to avoid the blonde face framing and stick to the natural hair tone. The weaving technique also helps the process, making the transition from red to blonde look smooth and natural.
Many fans approve of the transformation and hype the hair pro up for her work. “I have natural red hair and hate this, why does anyone have the right to say what I can and can’t do with my hair,” one person comments. “Highlights are so pretty on natural redheads! Why are people so angry?” another fan joins in.
Although the hair pro nails the color transformation and maintains as much natural hair tone as possible, many people still blame her for ruining her client’s gorgeous locks. “Her hair looks so dead afterwards,” one user mentions. Some people also confess their hairstylists had the last word and simply refused to do something with natural red locks.
“I have been refused at 5 salons because my natural hair is too beautiful,” one comment says. “As a redhead, I went to a salon last week for a consultation and they refused to do highlights,” another follower adds. The main reason behind such refusal is the stylist’s unwillingness to ruin their client’s uniqueness. At the same time, they may not know how to work with red hair. So, nothing personal – it’s all about professionalism.
