Style With Edge: ‘Blood Moon Rising’ Red Hair

Color by Joanna Gonzalez. Styling & Quotes by Jason J Dougherty.


Fall in line with autumn’s naturally favorite shade. RED! Or maybe you should leave it to the stars to inspire you with fall’s big color? The total lunar eclipse turned the sky blood red in October, and we took note. When the moon passed completely through Earth’s dark shadow, the moon gradually got darker during this type of eclipse and then took on a rusty, or bloody red hue. This influenced color expert Joanna Gonzalez to partner with stylist Jason J Dougherty and take on a stellar new hairstyle idea straight from mother nature!

Total Hair Eclipse

Get hot with red copper hair and glow in the moonlight with the “it” color and a rockin’ new cut!

WHY: Add sass to your everyday style with ravishing rouged lengths and ride the new wave with an undone texture or finish with a smooth and straight 60’s feel.

BEST FOR: The outspoken girl; when you want to “start fresh;” or the woman who just started landed her dream career. It’s also perfect for anyone looking to make a bold fashion statement.

FASHION INSPIRATION: Mod, rocker chic, femme fatale. She’s come undone but is completely put together!

ABOUT THE COLOR:
Color expert Joanna Gonzalez says…”For those who prefer their style a little edgy, this is the perfect way to spice up your hair and bring out your rock and roll personality for fall. Turn warm reds and deeper tones up a notch with a fiery crimson color and add balayage to break up the layers and bring out the movement of the cut. It’s a no-brainer to pair with your fall darks and all black wardrobe and to transform those with fair skin and light complexions. One thing is certain…it will bring out the color of the eyes! To keep your red color looking fresh, Oribe’s Beautiful Color line is a must!”

STYLING TIP:
The winds also pick up this season, causing the leaves to just about come undone from the trees. Make styling in the mornings just as easy with stylist Jason J Dougherty’s simple “undone” hair trick. This combo braiding and flat-iron technique will have you singing Beyonce’s ‘I woke up like this!”
