Liz Lee was seen at the recent MTV Awards with deep red hair and peek-a-boo teal highlights. You may not want to go quite as dramatic as Liz, but this is a very trendy style. She has her hair pulled back into a messy twist that matches her quirky personality.

Blake Lively has chosen a golden red color for her hair in this picture. When you are considering red, be sure to consider your underlying skin tone. Look at the palm of your hand and if it has a pink cast, a cool red would be in order. If your palm has a peach cast, then you may want to wear a warm red. Have your stylist pick a red tone that will compliment your skin tone and work with your hair’s natural pigments.

Drew Barrymore is one of our favorite celebrities to watch. She’s always switching up her looks and in this picture she has deep red hair that brings out her beautiful eyes and goes very well with her skin tone.

Lauren Conrad is just one of many celebrities wearing a ballerina bun. This classic style has experienced a boost in popularity since the release of the movie Black Swan. You can wear a bun high on your crown or low on the nape of your neck. It is a hair style that goes with almost any outfit and is perfect for a special occasion or a night out on the town.
