The Many Shades of Red

October 30 2018

If there’s one thing we know, it’s that red hair is on fire this season! One of our favorite things about red hair is how versatile it can be- whether you have fair skin, dark skin, or any other skin tone in between- we can find the perfect shade of red for you. We have rounded up a list of a few of our very favorite red tones to help inspire you to find your perfect shade of crimson.

Sparkling Ginger: On fair-skinned women, incorporating gold tones will enhance the eye color and add more depth. Vibrant shades of red offer pale complexions a more lively appearance, which can help you look “lit” from within.

Bright Auburn: For medium skin tones, a red that’s on the auburn side works very well. If you’re lucky enough to have medium skin tones, you actually have a wide spectrum on the red scale from which to choose. Don’t be afraid to go deep and bold, or bright and coppery. You literally can’t go wrong here!

Cherry Coke: Tan skin tones look great with cherry red or vibrant crimson, that help enhance your natural glow. If you're on the tanner side but aren't ready to go for a full-on bright cherry, this color makes for an ideal happy medium.

Fire Engine Red: For darker skin tones, we recommend staying away from gold. Instead, opt for a red with blue undertones — fire engine red, if you dare — as this will enhance the gold in your skin and ultimately be very complementary. We also like shades of berry, burgundy, and wine, like merlot, for darker skin tones, so there's quite a bit of wiggle room in terms of what red you can go.

Blackberry: Berry tones make darker skin tones, as well as the hair itself, seem aglow. This hue airs on the purple side, but still has enough warmth in it that it maintains an ultra-flattering balance.
