Bright Orange Red Hair
Some hair color experts actually refer to this as carrot top color since it is in fact a mixture of orange and red just like a carrot. If you are just going to imagine the color, it is but natural to feel afraid. But imagine the color against a beautiful porcelain skin. It looks fantastic!
Perfect contrast is provided with the rich shade against a super pale face. However, this would not look good on super long hair. It looks best on a sophisticated length which should be just at chin length or just above the shoulder. Soft bouncy waves will soften the overall look.
Medium Auburn Hair
Think Irish red and you will somehow get the picture of how this red shade looks like. This best fits those with fair complexions to achieve that perfect contrast. This works well on just about any hair length but the tricky thing here is that the hair should be kept fresh and shiny at all times to avoid dry, lifeless, and frizz-looking hair.
Soft Ginger Hair
If you have a fair complexion with somehow yellow undertones, then you should try this shade. The color is that of a less-vibrant red and oftentimes referred to muted red. If paired with the right fair complexion, this should make the face glow beautifully.
Brownish Copper Hair
This is one of the all-time favorite red hair color shades because it has got equal parts of red and brown. This is suitable for fair to medium skin tones but is totally a no-no for those with olive skin tones as it has a tendency to make the skin look sallow.
Golden Red Hair
This is probably the most versatile red shade as any skin tone can try this essentially those with olive skin tones since they are the ones that tend to be picky when it comes to red hair colors.
Now we want you to think of Rihanna. Yes if you are wondering the red shade she used, it is blue-red which is perfect for her skin color. Hair experts say that the darker your skin is, the more blue-red you should go for.
