Ali Larter debuted this red wine shade in early September. Though it's for her role in the next Resident Evil film, we can't help but wish she'd keep this rich red shade forever. We especially love that she's kept her brows a similar shade, but not matched them exactly—it keeps this looking very modern.

Lauren Conrad ditched her famous California-blonde locks for this bold red shade—perhaps inspired by hair superstar Kristen Ess? We especially love the way she's filled in her brows in a warm gingery shade to co-ordinate with her brand new look.

Karen Elson has had red hair for as long as we can remember—but she intensified it to this stunning, fire engine red shade in 2015, and we could not love it more. If you're looking to get a shade like Karen's, an all-over crimson base with lowlights in a corresponding shade will do it.

If you're looking for a subtle red change, look to Amy Poehler for inspiration: this red-brown shade with subtle highlights close to the ends is fall perfection.

Christina Hendricks famously went blonde earlier in the year—but by the Emmys, she was back to a gorgeous strawberry shade. A rosy red semi-permanent glaze is the perfect way to warm up golden blonde for fall without the commitment of full-on dye.

Speaking of Med Men stars, Elisabeth Moss went copper-red for her role in The Free World. This warm—yet light—shade is the perfect compliment for her fair skin, and a wonderful way to add depth to blonde or light brown hair for autumn.

Okay okay, we know it's a wig—but Katy Perry looks so gorgeous with this '90s-inspired burgundy shade that we kind of want her to make it permanent. If you're opting for this shade, we love it with a little bit of dark brown at the root...it makes it just that little bit rock and roll, while still being elegant.

It can be hard to make intense colors look chic, but Monica shows us how it's done. The neon red paired with a sharp, angled bob makes the color look modern and elegant.

Sienna Miller made a change from sunny blonde to this new-penny copper, and even though we love her with golden hair, we REALLY love this fresh shade. Loose waves are often thought of as a summer style, but paired with more intense Autumnal shades, fall beach waves are still totally stylish.

...and then she changed it up again with this rose-gold color at London Fashion Week. This pinky-gold color is perhaps the best her hair has ever looked. Make sure your colorist intersperses sunny golden highlights with pinky-red lowlights for a multidimensional color that is a little more grown-up than straight pink.

Even though she's changed her hair about fifteen times since, Rihanna's deep ginger-red waves back in June were nothing short of inspirational. The flat waves she's rocking right now are our everything; tease them a little at the ends with a natural bristled brush for added fullness.
