FALL HAIR COLOR TREND: RED HAIR
Trying to Decide What Color to Dye Your Hair This Fall? Go for Red Hair!
Women with fair skin tones look exceptionally well with red hair because it really has a way to show off their soft features, allowing their skin to really look bright and pure.
What Shade of Red Works Best With Your Skin Tone?
If you have ivory skin or skin with a slight pinkish tone, a lighter shade of red might be the best option for you. With this skin type you are able to wear a bright red shade and really make it work because it compliments your skin tone to the fullest, making it look brighter and healthier.
For the women out there with an olive shade skin tone or even a slight golden hue, cooler reds are more appropriate for your skin type. Many salons say that women with lighter skin tones really look the best with red hair, but this doesn’t mean that our friends with the luscious dark mocha or carmel skin cannot pull this off and really make it look hot. Just make sure you try and stick with a darker shade without too much of an orange tint to it.
Things to Consider When Dyeing Your Hair Red
There is no wonder why you so many women are thinking about changing their hair color to red, since red is such a powerful and strong color that simply reeks of confidence and sex appeal. However there are things to consider before heading over to your hair dresser.
How to Care for Color Treated Hair
First, once you dye your hair red, it can be difficult to get out and can sometimes fade to a lighter shade that may resemble a faint pink tint. You should always discuss these concerns with your hair dresser before you drastically change your color and ask about the right kind of shampoos for color treated hair and products to use make the hair color last.
Red Hair and What You Wear
As a red head you also need to really watch what you wear. Certain colors that you put on your body can really affect the color of your hair and your look all together. This means you don’t want a color to clash with your hair. If you have bright fire-engine red hair and you wear a pink blouse, you may resemble Valentines Day, but it might not be the most flattering look to try and pull off. When you hair is red, simple colors look the best such as black, grey, white, and tan. Yellows can also look exceptional with red.
Ladies, if you are looking for a new color this season that will really create a stir when you walk into the room, try something extremely sultry and go for the red. There is no better time to be a red head then now!
