The colour: High Intensity Auburn
The look: Irish Genetics, Miranda Hobbes, Joan Holloway-Harris
The method: Hazelton thinks red hair can be worn by anyone (much like a Kiss Me I’m Irish t-shirt on St. Patrick’s Day). But appreciating the undertones of your skin helps narrow down the options: warm faces and brighter, more orange colors (SZA, Daphne from Scooby Doo), cool faces and blue-leaning auburn hair (Christina Hendricks, Florence Welch, the red-haired chameleon in this Lindsey Wixson shoot). This particular crimson hue was inspired by Hazelton’s work on the HBO show The Time Traveler’s Wife, where she had to create a wardrobe of reds that would glow in natural light. Even after a long night of toiling in the dungeons of her living room, each wig in the series wasn’t finished until it could be enjoyed in the morning sun.
Cinnamon Red Cider
The colour: A classic ginger infusion
The look: Julianne Moore (usually), Asuka Langley, Libby’s Canned Pumpkin
The method: For this story, Hazelton — along with a cohort of fellow colorists — bleached, dyed, and painted five wigs in a spectrum of five gorgeous reds (all inspired by naturally dark blonde Lindsey Wixson). The logical middle ground of this spectrum is this: a spicy shade of not quite brown.
