Your hair is no exception: it's always fun to play with darker dimensions over sun-kissed highlights as you edge into sweater season. Ahead, a look at some of our favorite deep red hair colors to transition to, as modeled by celebrities.

This bottle-redhead is more famous for her crimson locks than her natural hue. Here, Stone adds some more dimension to her hair with deep brown color at the roots. It's a nice transition for redheads hoping to try a cooler hue in the fall and winter months.
