3. Mahogany Red: Celebrity Colour Match (back to index)
Make room for the vampire queen of hair shades: mahogany is the colour for people that reject labels, break the mould and naturally stand out. Gracious, soft, but also ambiguous and romantic: embrace the redhead style with class and glamour by wearing your hair in Mahogany Red. A few examples? Think of old-school Ariana Grande during her Nickelodeon days, but also Demi Lovato, Katy Perry and Lily Collins have dyed their tresses in this mulled wine-like shade at some point in their careers.
4. Mahogany Red Hair Extensions: The Perfect Hairstyles (back to index)
There are many ways that you can wear your hair extensions in, and red shades, in general, do work really well with braided hairstyles and waves, for example. Mahogany red is a pretty dark and velvety hue that works really well with glossy, bouncy waves and slicked-back hairstyles. Let’s see three hairstyles that will bring Mahogany Red to life like no one else!
This glamorous hairstyle sees your hair crimped in glossy, soft waves. It’s a beautiful, timeless classic that has been trending in Hollywood and the celebrity showbiz for a long time - hence the name! With this dark, vivid shade of red, Hollywood waves will stand out and give a diva effect that is going to be hard to forget.
Perfect for: square face shape, oval face shape
Mermaid waves are the perfect look for when you want to appear effortlessly put together; it’s a playful, flirty, yet classy hairstyle that keeps on giving (even when summer is over)! Perfect for a day out brunching with the girls, or a dancing night full of shenanigans. You can either bring your natural mermaid curls to life with a sea-salt spray for some serious texture, or play around with a hair waver.
Perfect for: diamond face shape, heart face shape, oval face shape
High Ponytail With Middle Part
This fierce yet youthful hairstyle is one of a kind - and it owes its popularity to celebrities such as Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, to name two! Slicked back hair and a long, glossy ponytail alone can go a long way - but if you feel like giving it an extra kick you can plait your ponytail, style it in a bubble braid, or even flip its ends with a flat iron. You can get your wrap-around clip-in ponytail hair extensions here.
Perfect for: oval face shape, round face shape
5. Mahogany Red Hair Colour: Trends (back to index)
Red hair has its own, unique energy - you cannot simply just dye your hair and call it a day. Being a redhead is more than that, it’s a true lifestyle and there are different aesthetics that you can try and embrace as a redhead. When it comes to trends, it’s hard to know if they’re going to work out well on our hair, especially if we recently changed our hair colour, length and/or style. Luckily, there’s quite a few recent trends that will work wonders on wine red locks.
Money Piece Hair
Are you into chunky highlights? Then you will love this trend, coming back to us from the 90s queen, Geri Halliwell from Spice Girls. Geri has red hair, and bold face-framing highlights made the look quite iconic (so much that people are still wearing it thirty years later).
I’m picturing: pale yellow and turquoise butterfly clips, in lovely contrast with the copper tone of your new hair. Think of them as a cute accessory for your half-up, half-down hairstyle - perhaps with the addition of a few crimped strands.
When it comes to shiny, spaghetti-like straight locks, the glass hair trend is the perfect technique to follow for a sleek, classy result. Its effects are best known for making darker hair colours pop, and hair stylists such as Chris Appleton from Color Wow taught us that there’s something unique about sleek, silky straight dark locks. After all, there’s a reason he picked this style for one of the most famous women in America - Kim Kardashian herself. Read more about this on our blog: “What Is Glass Hair And How To Get It”.
6. Mahogany Red Hair Extensions: Who Can Wear It? (back to index)
This is always the one million dollars question: technically, the answer I would love to always give is “everyone can wear whatever they want”. Which is true, to an extent.
But some shades work better with certain undertones, and Mahogany Red is no exception to this rule. Its luminosity seems to be working best with cool and neutral skin tones, whilst, unfortunately, people with warm undertones will not get the best results.
7. Conclusion: (back to index)
Velvety, mysterious and textured - Mahogany Red exceeds any expectation and by adding volume and length it will bring your red tresses to a whole new level of class. What are you waiting for? Shop the shade now from our range.
