What color high lights would look good with dark hair? I was thinking a reddish auburn color. ?

Image by yeah that’s my question, and this next question is kind of awkward but …


  1. l’oreal brilliant red

  2. forever half asleep

    I always do Garnier Nutrisse Pomegranate (number 66, I think). It’s more of a bright red. My natural color is dark blond/light brown and it comes out pretty bight red. I also added blond highlights and I’m really happy with the results.

    Good luck.

  3. I use Nice N Easy – #108. Frankly it isn’t the best hair color, but it’s the only color I like.


  4. Auburn would be a level 5 or darker (think #s in the 50’s or 40’s)…Strawberry blond is usually level 8 or lighter (#s in the 80’s). So, for a good medium red, look for anything around level 6 or 7 – Feria makes AWESOME reds – #67 (Cardinal) is truly gorgeous. If you want something brighter, go with #R75 (Flaming Red) or #R68 (Ruby Rush)…I’ve tried just about all of their reds, and none of them have ever disappointed me.
