I get to experience some of the most breathtaking fall scenery in the south. Right now the leaves are beautiful hues of greens, browns, oranges, yellows and reds.

The scenery has me excited for fall and has inspired me to try a bold new look. During the cooler months I love to style my hair in braids, twists and up-do’s which help it retain length. While planning my hairstyle for this month I thought it would look so dope with a bold pop of color. Inspired by the fall leaves, I decided to dye my hair using the Schwarzkopf Color Ultime Flaming Reds in the color Mahogany Red.

To start, I parted my hair into four equal sections. Then mixed the color cream and developer lotion together in the developer bottle. With gloved hands I applied the color to my entire head. I let the color sit before rinsing and washing my hair. To seal in moisture and shine, I finished up by conditioning my hair with the conditioning cream.

After drying my hair I loved the color, but it did not bond to and show up like I wanted on every strand. The color mostly came through on my roots. While I loved the color that showed up on my roots, I wanted it to be bolder on the ends of my hair as well.

To style my hair and make the color pos I parted my hair into five sections. Two section at the back, two on the sides and one at the crown. I made four flat-twist braids up toward the crown using the parted hair at the sides and back of my head. Once they were secured with a bobby pin, I misted the ends of my hair with a temporary colored hairspray to get the color to pop even more.

I’ve since washed the temporary color out and have been rocking just the red roots styled in braids and twists. The color is still vibrant and my hair amazingly shiny even after washing it twice. The style turned out so dope. I love this look and plan on re-coloring the ends in a few weeks for more impact.

  1. Wow, I love the red! I’ve always wanted to go the DIY route, but since a highlighting disaster the night before my engagement photos, I’ve been too scared to try again, lol.

  2. That red looks amazing on you! I used to have bright red hair when I was in high school. Mine was a bit easier because I was going from blonde to red. I also helped a friend with black hair add some red streaks once.

  3. Dang girl, that is awesome. Your hair looks SO cool. I love the flaming red hair look and would love to do that to my hair.

Okay love...let me know what you think!
