Whether they were born this way or not, each woman in this bunch of beauties will forever be considered a redhead to us. From Emma Stone's deep auburn (bring it back, Emma!), to Isla Fisher and Nicole Kidman's so-light-it's-almost-blonde strawberry tones, we love the daring vibe red hair lends to our favourite stars. When it comes to styling, Brazilian model Cyntia Dicker goes all out with volume, and Florence Welch tends to opt for something more low-key every time — and as you can see, both looks work. Last week we took a look at some of the best brunettes out there; this week we're painting the site red. Click through for some seriously cool inspiration!

After spotting pictures of Candice Swanepoel at the Victoria's Secret Angel launch of Body by Victoria in New York yesterday, I couldn't help but notice how bright and glossy her hair looked. Although naturally fair, it's safe to say Candice foils her hair to keep it looking so blonde, but maintaining those highlights is a whole other ballgame! Now I'm no Victoria's Secret Angel (that actually makes me laugh out loud), but I do get my hair foiled every six to eight weeks so I'd like to see myself as a bit of an expert in maintaining a bright, glossy colour. A goldilocks yourself? Click through to see what type of products you should be using, and when.
There's nothing worse than regularly spending a fortune having your hair coloured to notice only weeks later that your colour is fading. There are various contributing factors, including washing your hair too often, frequent use of heat styling tools without using the appropriate protectant products, swimming in chlorine without wearing a swimming cap, as well as extensive sun exposure. If you've noticed that your colour is looking a little worse for wear and fading all too fast, we've got the tips and tricks to get your hair picture-perfect for the party season.
- Choose shampoo, conditioner and styling products that are designed to cater for coloured hair, and even more specifically, those tailored to every different hair colour. To maintain your colour and shine in-between salon visits, try Aveda's three-part system Color Conserve Shampoo and Conditioner (from $12.95 each) and Aveda Color Conserve Conditioning Treatment ($49.95), featuring soy-derived vitamin E and other enriching plant-based ingredients.
She's not averse to colouring her hair — famously saying that the platinum blonde colour she sported for Sucker Punch "attracted more creeps" — but Emily Browning showed off a new colourful 'do when her and Max Irons attending the opening of the Gucci museum in Florence yesterday. Joining Kate Bosworth and co. as the latest to try her hand at the dip-dyed tips trend, do you think Emily pulls it off? Or did you prefer her look pre-purple dye?
When we saw that Evan Rachel Wood was back to blonde again at this week's premiere of Mildred Pierce, we thought we'd do a little digging into her Hair Files, and boy, did we come up trumps! The 23-year-old actress had been blonde, brunette, red, worn her hair up, down, wavy, curly that it's almost hard to keep track! The natural blonde played around with warmer tones before switching to the dark side in '08, later that year saw her first foray into fiery red tones which had mellowed by the time she took to our screens in True Blood. Next it was brunette, blonde, strawberry blonde and now back to blonde . . .
Last week in NY, Ashley Greene headed to the Mark studio to chat about how she originally wanted to play Bella in Twilight and all things beauty. She is the spokeswoman for the brand that's seen to be the younger, more trend-focused sister of Avon after all. Ashley revealed her secret to looking fabulous on the go, the trend she's dying to try, spoke about her newly-dyed hair and more!
On how she got involved with Mark: "Initially, I was such a fan of the Mark products. I mean, every girl loves makeup. But the more research I did about Mark, the more I fell in love with its empowering message that they're sending to young women — that they can make their mark in the world, they can make a difference, have financial responsibility, and independence. It's really important to me, and it's something I love to encourage to do."
Well, lookee what we have here peeps. It's Luna Lovegood with red hair! Seems like Emma Watson wasn't the only Harry Potter star needing a change of look, Evanna Lynch who plays the kooky character arrived at last night's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 London premiere sporting a new fiery 'do. It's especially striking against her ivory skin and those blindingly blue eyes of hers. Red is definitely having a moment right now with Carmen Kass switching her signature blonde strands for racy red at Louis Vuitton's Spring '11 show in Paris last month. What do you think of Evanna's new look? Do you miss Luna's blonde locks?
Despite strong efforts from Natasha Poly and Chuck Bass' new girl Clémence Poésy — both of whom showed off darker 'dos in Paris this week — red hair is still the colour to beat. Not convinced? Well the proof is in the pudding. Or the celebs. Whatevs. Carmen Kass is said to be so taken with her Louis Vuitton look that she's thinking of keeping it for a while. Then there's Mad Men's Christina Hendricks who 'fesses up that Karen Elson stole her look in the November issue of Harper's BAZAAR. Juicy! She tells the mag: “I was in Milan, and you would see the same girls at castings. There was one girl — she was like, ‘I can’t get any work. I’m so sick of this, I’m ready to quit. I love your hair colour. What do you colour your hair with?’ and I was like, ‘Oh, it’s red. Here’s my formula.’ It was Karen Elson. A couple of weeks later, she had bright red hair . . . Then I saw her on the cover of Italian Vogue, and the rest is history!” And in further six-degrees-of-separation-stylee news, Maggie Grace, who is set to appear in the upcoming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, says her favourite hair colour is red and she's constantly asking directors if they'll let her dye it because it reminds her of Anne of Green Gables, which is why Christina first dyed her hair back when she was 10. Bless.
