1-Long and Free Flowing
One of the best things about having red hair is it is beautiful and in most cases unusual. To spice things up a bit, why not let the hair grow long and add some bouncy curls. Most people loved Grace’s messy hair on the popular television show, “Will and Grace.” That untamed and messy look really works for some people.
2-Long and Free Flowing Red Hairstyles
Guys love the long locks on a woman and if your hair goes below your shoulders, it is considered long. Comb it straight for some days and on others add some curl. Either way, the longer the better, especially when dealing with red.

Sort of like a bob, but with unclear boundaries, a shaggy haircut can be the perfect way to frame a gorgeous face. The red locks look amazing tussled, and a shabby haircut is just the way to do it. Often cut with a razor to make jagged edges, this hairstyle looks great on just about any redhead. Red hairstyles are as varied with this look as they come, but this hair-do is fun and flirty all wrapped up in one.
Short and Shabby Red Hair Styles
It’s been around for a while, but one of the most popular red hairstyles is by far the Bob. There are many different variations of this one, but they all fall under the “Bob.” Whether the hair is curled under or over makes no difference, it can be pulled up in a barrette in the front or left free-flowing. “Bob” is still one of the most requested red hairstyles.
The Bob Red Hair Styles
Known to be worn by petite women who have the “cute” factor, the pixie cute requires little work and has big rewards. The top can be left long or cut short in a spike, depending on your personality. The pixie has long been known as the feminine way to do very little to your hair and get by. It doesn’t work for everyone, but those who take this big risk when selecting red hairstyles, won’t be disappointed.
Short With Layers and Long Sides
One cut that comes and goes with the style is the short do with options. This one allows a person to cut layers in their hair, making it appear thicker and fuller. Also, for those who can’t stand not having hair around their face and neck, keeping the sides longer is an option. Whether it is just a few strands of long hair for effect, or it is a whole section of hair, there are numerous options for the redhead.
