Oh how I wish I had red hair. To be the Anne of Green Gables of 2012. Red heads have all the sass with a pinch of ‘girl next door’. I realise most natural born redheads will argue my point and remind me of the school yard ridicule but imagine all the bully’s now checking out your Christina Hendricks-esque locks.
If you weren’t born with strawberry blonde locks you might considering dying your hair to be apart of the trend. Choose the best shade of red hair for your skin tone. Here are some some great tips from yourbeauty.com
Red hair color for light skintones
Fair skin looks best with a light, golden, strawberry blonde to a bright copper or red. Avoid wine-colored red and burgundy though because these shades will make you look too pale.
Red hair color for medium skintones
Because your skin has more pigments, your hair can too. Opt for a medium coppery blonde to medium auburn shade. Just steer clear of dark eggplant hues as these shades will make your skin appear yellow.
Red hair color for dark skintones
Darker skintones look gorgeous with a medium auburn to chestnut brown shade. Super red hues, however, have too much blue in them and will make you look green, so be careful here.
