My fellow redheads, I hope you all enjoyed Tuesdays revelries… or, for most of you, the weekends debauchery. Even if you have no Irish ancestry, as a redhead, St. Patrick’s is your day. People rub your head for good luck, call you a leprechaun (or is that just me…?), and above all, definitely expect you to be wearing green. That is our color, right? We’ve all heard it… most likely more than once….
Well, considering the broad spectrum of colors available to us, I should hope there’s more than just one that we can truly rock. So here are 4 colors that every redhead should have in her closet (in addition to green of course):
1. Yellow. This is especially true in the summer.. find a yellow, be it gold, sunflower or saffron, and rock it. Trust me, you'll look amazing.
2. Turquoise. Yes, yes and yes! This may seem oddly specific. I mean, why didn’t I just say blue? But there’s just something about this particular shade of blue that makes our red hair pop! Throw in some additional red accents (a necklace or bold red lips) and you’ll have a show stopper look.
3. Cinnamon. As Neil Young said, we are the Cinnamon Girl. The reddish/brown tint of cinnamon looks amazing with many a redhead’s locks. Again, add some red accents!
4. That little Red dress. Yes I said it! Every redhead should have at least one red dress. Make sure to pick a shade of red that doesn’t match your hair. The same rules for finding the right shade of red lipstick apply.
Above all, be bold in your look.
