Flattering color for redheads

I envy you lucky girls who are born with red hair. I still have to find the perfect shade of red for my complexion. But it did not stop me to appreciate the beauty of red hair.I think red is a gorgeous hair color ever. I have been drooling over Julianne Moore, Holland Roden, and Bonnie wright’s flaming hair.

Red hair is enough to make a statement, to wear the perfect color could enhance the beauty of the red hair. Natural redheads have the knowledge on which color would flatter them the most. For girls who colored your hair red and not sure which color to look for in a dress, read on to find out the best colors for you.

Okay, so this post is heavily influenced by a red-haired celebrity. Therefore, I put lots of pictures of red-haired celebrities to help you understand how mentioned colors actually suit red hair.

1. GREEN: 

Green is the best color you can think of to complement red as green and red are the opposite each other on a color wheel. Different shades of green are complement for about every shade of red hair. You can never go wrong with a green dress paired with red hair. Depending on the shade or red hair, choose a shade of green color dress. A lighter shade of red hair like strawberry blond would look more flattering in a lighter shade of green. But remember it’s not a universal rule. You can choose from jewel tone emerald green, teal, mossy green, olive green, etc.
