Only about two percent of people worldwide have naturally red hair - Bella Hadid is not one of them. Judging by her new Instagram post, she'd love to. Because the model now shows herself with a new hair color - in bright red!
As much as we love red hair, whether the nuance - which shines as if it was glowing in the dark - is really suitable for everyday use and thus a new hairstyle trend in autumn 2021, we are not yet entirely in agreement.
Bella Hadid's new hairstyle trend is somewhat reminiscent of Milla Jovovich in the film "The Fifth Element" or Franka Potente in "Run Lola Run". Both absolute power women wear their hair color confidently.
Self-confidence is also the keyword in this hairstyle trend: Anyone who dares to dye their hair a bright red will definitely need a lot of it. Bella Hadid looks surprisingly good with her new hair color - her olive complexion flatters the garish tone of her hair and, of course, the model can actually wear anything and always looks stunning.
Yes, the bright red takes courage, but also a suitable complexion and - very important! - a healthy hair structure. Those whose skin tone falls into the ivory or porcelain category should better distance themselves from this bright hair color. The unnatural red is a cold shade and makes you look pale and sickly very quickly. Skin tones with warm undertones are therefore much more suitable because they create a balance to the cool nuance of the hair.
Once you have overcome your concerns and actually want to imitate Bella Hadid, you should have enough patience to see a professional in the salon. He can best judge whether the hair is healthy enough for the time-consuming dyeing procedure. Light blonde heads have a big advantage here: Your hair does not have to be bleached first in order to then shine red. However, if you are dark blonde, brown, or even black-haired, you need a lot of preparation, in which the color pigments must first be removed from the hair. Then it is especially important that the structure is healthy, otherwise, the rigors of bleaching can quickly lead to hair breakage.
Therefore: think carefully about whether the bright red hair color should be worn permanently or only intended for a little variety (for example now for Halloween!). Then, in case of doubt, a well-made wig is sufficient for the hairstyle trend, just like with Bella Hadid...
