Every Celebrity Going Red & Ginger: Here’s What You Need To Know

Consider this your official warning: Red hues are about to be everywhere. Already coined the new “hot girl hair,” our favorite roster of *it girls* including Zendaya, Kendall Jenner and Doja Cat are opting for warm tones. So, expect an influx of red requests this season from strawberry blonde to deep copper. Keep scrollin’ for a full list of celebs going red, plus the pro tips you’ll need to transition clients into warmer shades!  


Here’s Why We Love It 

Remember when TikTok declared blonde hair as cheugy? Even though we can’t believe everything we see on the internet, 2022 has undoubtedly brought a wave of clients experimenting with darker tones. From “expensive brunette” to a range of red hues, routine blonde clients are looking to add depth and dimension back into their hair.



What Celebrity Trend Experts Are Saying

“As far as tones, 2022 is wrapped in warmth [like] copper-toned blondes,” said celeb stylist Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir). According to BTC’s 2022 Hair Trend Report Olivia Rodrigo’s hairstylist Clayton Hawkins (@claytonhawkins) predicts warm reds, auburns and oranges. “I love a dark auburn or copper tone for the winter months,” added Sally Hershberger (@sallyhershberger). Check out the trendy shades below!


1. Kendall Jenner’s Light Copper

What better place to debut a new haircolor than the Prada runway at Milan Fashion Week? Easy answer: Nowhere. Styled by the iconic fashion hairstylist Guido Palau (@guidopalau), Kenny ditched her signature ultra-dark brunette look for a light copper by Matt Rez (@colorbymattrez) and Jenna Perry (@jennaperryhair).
