Keep in mind red requires a lot of upkeep. You need to touch up the colour every 6 weeks because it fades so quickly. Granted it will most likely just fade brownier, but if you want to keep it vibrant, it can be a pain. That being said, i had vibrant copper hair for 2 year, and while it took work, i loved it!
my advice is to get your red done at a salon the first 2-3 times until you get your perfect shade, and then get your hair colour matched somewhere that sell professional dye to the public. The reason being red is easy to screw up on your own. It can easily turn out purple, black or too intense or even spotty. I got mine done in a salon twice until i found the shade i wanted then got my colour matched with joico dye. The reason i believe you should use profssional dyes is because they are less damaging thus easier on the hair if you redye it every 6 weeks. The red pigment tends to last a little longer. I find it also eaiser to cutom mix your colour, which is what i did.
Hope that helps!
