4 Colors Every Redhead Should Have In Her Closet.... other than green

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….

"Redheads look so good in green.”

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.

Always looking for true periwinkle color.
And the correct shade if lavender – also difficult but when you find – it is stunning!

Black! I’m a redhead and anything black always looks great. Burnt orange/rust, golden yellow(think harvest yellow appliances from the 70s) and of course green!

Wow! These really do help! I also like to add some burgundy, or maybe camo color every once in a while. For makeup, ladies, stick with oranges and browns, gold around the holidays. And If you’re feeling fancy, add some light pink! :)

Pale lemon is a good colour, I find I can wear it quite well. Deeper yellow, no go!

Big yes to plummy purples. I don’t care for wearing red, personally, and I also look horrible in yellow. I wish I didn’t; I love yellow!

The heroine in my novel ‘The Red Gene’ longs for a shocking pink mini dress. you’ll have to read the book to see if she gets it.

Purple! Blazers, cardigans, scarves, wrap-dresses, I can do no wrong in a deep, rich purple! Just make sure it’s more blue than red.

peach and a smoke grey look awesome on a red head

I can’t wear yellow. It washes me out. And I think the red should have orange undertones.
