Sexy at Every Age: The Hottest Celebrity Redheads

redheads Intro

These five fiery-haired celebs prove that red is one hot hair color…no matter the age of the woman who rocks it.

1 / 5

Emma Stone

She may only be 26, but Emma Stone is the face of a new generation of red-haired beauties. While she occasionally strays from her auburn hue for a role, Emma’s strands always find their way back to scarlet. And the beauty of being young and redheaded? There are no rules. Go for a high-drama darker do, or lighten up to make your red more natural. Using a color-conditioning treatment like Alchemic Conditioner Red by Davines ($28.50) will keep your chosen red vibrant longer.

Christina Hendricks

Mad Men’s breakout star shocked fans when she announced she wasn’t a natural redhead. The 39-year-old face of Clairol’s Nice ‘n Easy line may not have been born with red hair, but the shade is a perfect fit her sultry, spunky personality. And, thanks to her red revelation, you can get her look for yourself: In the ad campaign, Christina shares that her Nice ‘n Easy shade is 6R Natural Light Auburn.

Julia Roberts

The reigning queen of redheaded superstars is still rocking her flaming locks at age 47. The Academy Award-winner (and Pretty Woman star) has long been synonymous with her auburn curls. And, it’s easy to see why. While many women in their 40s opt for a shorter style, Julia is proof that keeping your hair healthy is key for keeping your hair long. Bulking up on foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (think salmon, walnuts and flaxseed) is good for both your body and your hair. The fatty acids help make your hair grow, and omega-3s are also found in the cell membranes of your scalp, and in the natural oils that keep your hair hydrated.

Kathy Griffin

This late-in-life fashionista has been amping up her style in recent years, and her ravishing new red-carpet look includes quaffing her red hair into a sleek lob, complete with a heavy fringe for a sleek, yet age-appropriate style. And, while the 54-year-old comedian is making headlines for leaving Fashion Police, we have a feeling she won’t be leaving the fashion scene anytime soon.

5 / 5

Susan Sarandon

She’s spent five decades setting fire to the film world, and this redhead shows no signs of stopping. From Rocky Horror Picture Show and Bull Durham to her upcoming foray into reality programming on AOL’s Connected (which showcases her romantic relationship with a much younger man), the 68-year-old has taken on fiery roles that not only match her hair color, but also pair perfectly with her personality. A proud septuagenarian who knows how to keep her hair looking age-appropriate, Susan keeps her curls loose and cut short, for a style that’s chic at age 60 and beyond.
