This sultry, sensual hue will open the portal to an alternate reality where you can look and feel like a real Hollywood diva. Let's learn more about this exquisite, dark and mystical type of red hair extensions.
1. Dark Auburn Hair Extensions: The Witchy Redhead
We thought of the natural glamour of redheads and how they've been represented in the media; the Scarlet Witch, Black Widow and even Kim Possible come to mind when envisioning TV and cinema heroines sporting red tresses. This is how our Dark Auburn shade was born! Designed for those redheads who prefer to look sumptuous and mysterious rather than an average Pippi Longstockings with orange tresses. Dark Auburn is a quiet, metallic shade that reflects the light like nothing else.

4. Dark Auburn Hair Extensions: The Perfect Hairstyles
There are many ways that you can wear your hair extensions, and red shades, in general, do work really well with braided hairstyles and waves, for example. Let’s see three hairstyles that will bring Dark Auburn to life like no one else!
This glamorous hairstyle sees your hair crimped in glossy, soft waves. It’s a beautiful, timeless classic that has been trending in Hollywood and the celebrity showbiz for a long time - hence the name! With this sophisticated, dark shade of red, Hollywood waves will stand out and give a diva effect that is going to be hard to forget.
Perfect for: square face shape, oval face shape
Twisted Half-Up, Half-Down
There’s something incredibly romantic and even a bit historical about a twisted half-up, half-down hairstyle on red hair. After all, there’s a reason if fairy-tales heroes such as Princess Fiona and Disney’s very own Merida have been designed with fiery tresses! If you have medium to long hair, you can achieve this hairstyle with the aid of real human hair extensions, for volume and length that will make you look like a real dragon-slayer.
Perfect for: diamond face shape, heart face shape, oval face shape
Classy, boho-chic, and also incredibly casual and down to Earth: these are only a few of the words we could use to describe the vibrant, vivid vibe that a Dark Auburn messy bun can give. This hairstyle has gone from artsy and quirky to a celebrity's favorite in a very short amount of time - and it's easy to see why. Channel your inner witchy vibes with a deliciously crafted messy bun.
Perfect for: oval face shape, round face shape
5. Dark Auburn Hair Color: Trends
Red hair has its own, unique energy - you cannot simply just dye your hair orange and call it a day. Being a redhead is more than that, it’s a true lifestyle and there are different aesthetics that you can try and embrace as a redhead. When it comes to trends, it’s hard to know if they’re going to work out well on our hair, especially if we recently changed our hair color, length and/or style. Luckily, there’s quite a few recent trends that will work wonders on bright red locks.
Money Piece Hair
Are you into chunky highlights? Then you will love this trend, coming back to us from the 90s queen, Geri Halliwell from Spice Girls. Geri has red hair, and bold face-framing highlights made the look quite iconic (so much that people are still wearing it thirty years later). Find out more about the Money Piece hairstyle here.
I’m picturing: green, sparkly butterfly clips, in lovely contrast with the copper tone of your new hair. Think of them as a cute accessory for your half-up, half-down hairstyle - perhaps with the addition of a few crimped strands. Do I have your attention?
