What's in fashion this season? Red hair! Here are some great tips if you're thinking of going red.

Experts say you CAN go red...just follow this advice:

-- The darker your skin tone, the darker the red hair color should be. If you're dark or olive-skinned, stick to copper and ginger shades. Reds that look good on almost anyone: auburns and chestnuts.

-- Red hair color fades the fastest. Whether you get it done at a salon or do it yourself, go into it knowing you'll have to maintain the color. (For do-it-yourselfers, L'Oreal and Clairol's home dye kits get high marks for high quality and affordable pricing.)

-- I you decide to use henna because it's natural, it will add lots of shine to your hair. But there's also a downside. If you like to change your hair color, henna is like a 'coat of armor' on your hair. Once it's there...it's hard to get out.

-- You can try old-school and wash your red hair with red food products like cherry juice, pomegranate juice...even beets...to maintain color. But be careful. If it will stain your kitchen cutting board, there's a good chance it might also stain your shower and tub! Test it out first.
