Candace Cameron Bure is a redhead! See her gorgeous new look

We’re used to seeing Candace Cameron Bure rocking blond tresses, but she’s just as gorgeous as a redhead.

The 40-year-old actress sported her auburn locks at the People's Choice Awards and at a recent Hallmark press event. She showed off her new ‘do on Instagram, posing with her co-star in Hallmark’s "Aurora Teagarden" mystery series.

The "Fuller House" star couldn’t have picked a more flattering shade. The rich, warm hue looks stunning against her pale skin and makes her blue eyes really pop. And, it's a fun, playful color to go along with the much shorter cut she debuted last fall.

    Pro tip: Go for a middle part. "Adele looked great at the Grammys with this hairstyle," said hairstylist Neil Grupp of The Wall Group talent agency. "It always slims the face and gives a feeling of length. The sides are sitting on the face slim as well."

    Pro tip: Ask your stylist to razor cut into the ends for a choppier look. "If you don’t feel like you can pull off a super blunt bob, but love the length, this is your haircut.
