And in case you feel like all the reds and blondes you’re pairing just don’t have that kick you’re looking for, feast your eyes on these 25 stunning red and blonde hair combinations to get inspired.
# 1 Long Gradient Hair
Longer hair allows you to apply a more gradual color transition, which is a lot more interesting to look at. You can start off with some really dark, off-brown shade of auburn at the top and let it fade to a dark chestnut before brightening into a pale shade of blonde at the tips.
If you like flirty and fun, strawberry blonde hair was made for you. The color itself is a delicate tone that borders on pink and gold, which goes amazingly well with most skin tones. However, this two-toned look also makes great use of a lustrous burgundy to create a magnificent color gradient.
# 3 Pink and Blonde
Pink is such a delight to have on your hair because it is as Gothic as it is chic. If you love the best of both worlds, simmer it down by fading the pink color into beautiful golden locks towards the tips.

A little goes a long way only if you know how to marry two perfectly radiant colors. This is a blonde and red hairstyle that needs little validation because the way the fiery red under layer complements the pale blonde locks is simply perfect.
