How to Choose the Right Red Hair Color for YouBlog ▸ Beauty Tips, Fashion Trends | March 29, 2016
No matter what time of year it is – or how many celebs grace our screen with blonde or black hair, there’s just something about redheads. It can evoke thoughts of Ireland or superheroes. Red may seem passionate or quick-tempered. And, a whole lot of ladies feel the need to give it a go at some point.
When it’s your turn for red, it’s not a bad idea to know what shade is going to work before you emerge with an unflattering shade.
Sharp Blue Red
If you have darker skin, or definite blueish undertones, you can play with the sharper, darker shades that other women just can’t. And this color will always paint you as adventurous and fun-loving.
It’s not quite brown, and it’s only hardly orange. Dark auburn colors work well on those with fair or medium skin tones, especially those without distinguishable undertones.
If your skin is very dark or porcelain (with pink undertones), you should never approach this bright copper shade. But, if you fall somewhere in the middle, this color can make you stand out from the crowd.
If your skin is pale olive and your hair is naturally light, there’s no reason you shouldn’t play with this light copper color. It’s simply stunning when mixed with the right complexion.
This isn’t orange as much as it is a golden-blond with a tinge of orange added to the mix. Ginger looks best on fair skin with yellow undertones.
And if you happen to be a brunette with a desire to give red a try, you may just want to work with highlights, lowlights, or a scant amount of red mixed into your normal hair color. It’s not that you can’t pull off the lighter reds, but it will take a lot of work to get your hair to that point… and it’s not the best place to start when you don’t know how you’ll look as a redhead yet.
