Embrace the heat

Red hair has a resurgence almost every year. But each time around the trend-mill, the colour changes slightly to match the times.
Fast forward to 2022 and we’re watching celebrities make the shift to earthier, more natural tones like true copper, auburn and strawberry blonde with a metallic shine that really catches the eye.
Case in point? Famous blondie Sydney Sweeney’s red hair transformation sent shockwaves through the Euphoria star’s fanbase. When the actress was initially papped her strands were a distinct shade of strawberry red, but now Sweeney’s found a happy medium as a strawberry blonde.
Meanwhile on-again, off-again redhead Sophie Turner has turned up the heat with a deep red shade of copper that almost glows in the right lighting.
And then there’s iconic brunette Kendall Jenner, who gave up the gun and delved into an auburn hue that looks shockingly natural.
Thought we were done? Not quite. Model and Euphoria star Barbie Ferreira ditched her dark brown strands too, opting for a rusty brown instead. Though her signature fluffy dark eyebrows remained intact – phew.
Doja Cat also briefly tangoed with a gingered copper wig but as is to be expected, she’s tried several other colours since then.
And let’s not forget about a pioneer in the copper hair category; SZA spent most of 2021 donning a vibrant orange variation of the shade, and reminded us all of the power that a ‘00s-era blowout holds.
Kaia Gerber just joined the throng of celebrities clamouring for red-hued hair too. The model debuted a glistening auburn shade that in all honesty looks completely natural on the 20-year-old. Another celeb-daughter-turned-celeb trialling the hair hue? Olivia Jade, whose copper shade left her resemblance to mum Lori Loughlin's Full House character Aunt Becky (who also rocked red) appearing more obvious than ever.
