Red hair is very clearly one of the biggest summer beauty trends. Gotta have a super fire hair color to match the heat wave happening outside of our doors, right? Black women, in particular, are slaying the hair color which is super awesome, as so many people seem to think melanin and red hair can't look beautiful together.
Ahem, if you're reading that as shade for The Little Mermaid and Spider-Man casting haters, then you're spot on. We rounded up our favorite celebrity redheads from the past and present to show just how stunning black women have looked and continue to look with luscious, red locks.
Whether they slip into a crimson wig for the evening, try bright braids for a week, or dye their natural hair, black women are continuously killing the red hair trend. Get into it with the hot looks ahead.
Behold, Beyoncé as a fired-up redhead in the 2009 film Obsessed.
Nevermind the acting chops (or lack thereof) and the beardless Idris Elba. Beyoncé as a curly-haired redhead was kind of the star of this film. We haven't seen her return to this hair color very often (although there's a gif of her performing with even longer red locks) but it's kind of proof that she's a master of many hair colors. Honey blonde hair is her signature. Deep dark brown hair is her natural hair color. And red? Well, from the looks of it, it's her secret weapon. We are SLAIN.
