    I think that because it's a really bright, vibrant colour it will be really hard to get and then even harder to maintain. What I advise would be to by a permanent 'ginger' dye such as this one: http://www.boots.com/en/LOreal-Casti...e-Gloss_34598/ in 645 Amber

    And then use a semi-permanent every now and then when you want to boost your colour for a night out or something like this one: http://www.hairdyegallery.co.uk/review-sg-frd.html

    Idk if that helps at all? Let me know how it all goes!

    It depends on the colour of your hair now and whether it'll need 'lifting' or lightening. I went a similar colour and had to have my hair lightened a good few shades for the colour to take.

    It's a nightmare colour to keep looking vibrant though. And ruins your hair too. I wouldn't recommend it!

    It depends on your natural colour and hair porosity, but if you go on alternative hair dye sights you could easily find something that could get you that colour.
    However it would fade quickly and you'd need to keep re-dying at least once a month.
    Oh and if you get a vegetable based dye (like Manic Panic) which isn't full of ammonia and peroxide it will not ruin your hair.

    I have very similar coloured hair to the picture. Mine started black, so I used bleach to lighten it - it went to a copper/ginger colour. I then put Superdrug's own brand hair dye in 'Hot Red' over the top. It starts out a bit more vibrant than the hair colour that girl has, but quickly fades to that level.

    I also use Boots botanics radiant red shampoo and conditioner, it works great to maintain the colour of red hair!

    Jump in a bowl of tomato soup. You will smell of tomatoes but your hair will be the colour you desire.

    if you brush your hair at least 10 times a day there is a possibility it may turn this colour

    You'd probably have to have your hair bleached first, which wouldn't be great, but once its light enough you could use Directions hair colour in 'Fire' or perhaps 'Tangerine': http://www.ultravioletonline.com/sho...l8n1b34g9r2815
