    Hair definitely has to be pre-lightened if you anywhere from a level 6 or darker, if you want it to be bright like that. If your not sure of the color levels, think of it this way…Level 1 is black and Level10-12 are yellow blonde to pale blonde. Also, I wouldn’t use a manic panic or any water based color like it. If your going to get a “fantasy color” I would look for either Special Effects or Jerome Russel punky color. If you know someone who is a hairdresser, or one who is still in school, I would have them do it for you, since this is a lot of work, especially if you have to pre-lighten. For example… I’m doing my hair this color after my wedding. Right now I’m a level one black, so I will have to use a permanent hair color remover, which will only lift my color 1-2 levels ( remember the color levels as mentioned earlier). After the permanent color remover, I will then have to do a pre-lightening, which will consist of equal parts bleach, shampoo, and 20 or 30 volume peroxide developer. Mix that up, til its nice and creamy, and put it in DAMP here, I stress DAMP, because the hair cannot be wet, towel dry it, and leave it so it is 85-90 % dry. You will have to watch it, if you do at-home color ( dark) alot, you will get some uneven color tones, and might have to do it again. Anyway, the longest I would leave this on is 20 minutes. Since you are going red, you do not have to lift you color to a “bleach blonde”. As long as you have some orange tones after you do the lightening, the red will come out good. If you have a friend who’s in school to be a hair dresser, or know a hair dresser well, see if they can help you out in getting some professional hair coloring products, since store bought are only going to damage your hair more. You won’t be able to find a permanent hair color remover at a wal-mart or anything anyway, they definitely have it at a Sally’s Beauty Supply or something. Anyway, I’m a hair dresser so I have access to professional beauty supply houses, and I’m going to use professional color in my hair, most likely it will be 5RR ( which is a level 5 red red…yes double red), as well as adding a Red “Kicker” into the color mixure. A kicker is just something you add to the color mixture to make it more intense. But you could also use a special effects or jerome russel semi-permanent color if you don’t have access to a professional beauty supply house, or someone that can get you professional products. I’m not saying that you can’t acheive a color like the one above using bleach and store bought color, BUT the professional products are the best for your hair ( no I’m not just saying this because I’m a professional, it’s a fact…at-home hair color products are very damaging). And, like I said, if you are naturally a dark color, you might want to have someone help you out with this process, it will be a lot of work…But if you have a dirty blonde color or even a light brown, I don’t think you will have to pre-lighten. Also, you might want to get a color care shampoo and conditioner for use in your hair afterwards, DO NOT use pantene, this product is not good for your hair, no matter what the magazines or commericals say). If you’re going to use a store bought shampoo and conditioner, use a treseme. But, you can usually find some professional shampoo’s and conditioners at your local salons ( look mostly in the salon chains like Fantastic Sams, or even a wal-mart salon) that are on sale or on special. Don’t be afraid to spend a few extra dollars on a professional shampoo and conditioner, you will notice a huge difference when using it. And, try not to shampoo your hair everyday, as this will make the color come out faster ( when shampooing, use cool water instead of hot because the hot water opens the hair cuticles and makes the color easier to wash out). I know this is a lot, but I wanted to be as helpful as possible. E-mail me with questions if you have to

    If you have a dark hair color you will need to lighten it to a light/medium brown or dark blonde then buy a red color and color your hair then do it again for more of a red color. If you buy hair color from wal mart or wherever like over the counter. But its more damaging than professional products. I would suggest going to a cosmetology school in your area and get it done there becausd it would be less expensive thann a salon

    you can’t get this color on your own. it’s a guess and repeat thing if you aren’t a trained colorist, if you want a guarantee your hair doesn’t turn mac n’ cheese or purple, you have to pay for it. Beware: Red hair begins to fade after first wash, so maintaining a deep rich hue like the one above gets pretty expensive and isn’t good for your hair.

      Bs, my hair has been this color for months now, im actually considering going alittle darker red now. I have been dying my hair on my own since I was age 13, im 19.

    It’s actually really easy to do at home, and not that complicated at all. I have naturally dark brown hair, so i buy a lightener, use it as directed but leave it on until my hair goes a gingery or orangy colour, if your hair is really light blonde when you put the red hair dye on it may come out too red or a pinkish colour. Then buy some red hairdye, stargazer ‘rouge’ red semi permanent hair dye looks like exactly the same colour that is on this picture, or Feria ‘Scarlet Power’ is pretty much the same, but permanent. Although oddly the semi permanent hair dye lasts longer on my hair. I put the red hair dye on straight after I’ve lightened it and it turns out fine.

    My natural hair color is light brown, the first time I dyed it red I used a cheap color from Wal-mart-alike shop and it faded very quickly and pretty ugly. Since then I only dye my hair at a hairdresser but I kind of got tired of this tone, this red looks absolutely fabulous ♥ I’d really like to know where can I get this color and what it’s called, email me if anyone knows :)
    Thanks ♥

    Hey, i see some of you are asking how to get this colour, well I got mine a really similar colour the other day

    Basically, I had black hair and used hi lift bleach 30 vol to get my hair to a orangebrown colour (it was really patchy cause it was my friend and I’s first go at it)

    And it took 2 goes to get it overall orange brown but I also kept some black strands of hair to give it a bit of that toned look with different tones of red and black. Also, after each time I bleached I shampooed twice NOT CONDITIONED. If you dont bleach your hair too dramatically – only to the orange brown- and your hair is of decent quality (not dead from constant dying) then you can get away this this.

    then I used Manic Panics Vampire Red and you gotta be careful you dont bleach your hair too blonde or it will go BRIGHT pink. And I mean bright. It will look red under some lights but its best not to risk it unless thats what you want.

    So I slept in the manic panic overnight = towel over pillow, glad wrapped hair up, plastic bag tied up to look like swimming cap and slept in it over night (about 8 hours) then washed it out in the morning and it looked like this! It is really good :D I still didnt use conditioner just incase it ran pink.

    I also have a fire red conditioner col0ur that I will use once every 3 washes to keep the colour in good nick. Hope this helps!

    Also, with bleaching, DO the ends of the hair first! And wait until 15-10mins before you wash the bleach out to do your roots otherwise they will lighten too much and you will get either bright pink or very bright red [the bright red isnt too bad, it happened to me and its okay but at my school we’re not allowed to have extremely bright red hair colours so just incase those people have restrictions then yeah, if not do it whenever :) )

    Gorgeous colour!!… There are a couple of a ways you dye your hair red without bleaching it.. You can either use the brand Affinage BRed – This has a bleaching agent in it already which isn’t as bad as applying bleach directly to your hair. It’s an amazing product!! Use a 30 vol developer if you have dark hair.. Otherwise you can use an anti dandruff shampoo and conditioner which strips your hair colour.. I used Selsun Yellow – anti dandruff treatment which causes hair discolouration. My hair went from Black to Brown in 3-4 weeks and i was using Selsun twice a week… :) Happy Colouring mwa

    If you do a demi in between root jobs, you can keep this color long and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Volume is the key if you want to avoid bleaching. The higher the volume the more your hair is lightened but it will dry it out. And you can easily get this stuff at Sally’s.
