Auburn, red and fiery tones are a constant feature in the latest trends and they’re brilliant to add something spicy to your overall look. However, as with all hair colours, you should first consider how well-matched your desired hair colour will be with your skin tone. Using the wrong shade can make you look washed out and not provide the pop of colour you wanted. Following our helpful guide you can establish the best shade for your own tone.
Fair to Light Skin
When your skin is light and quite pale, the world is truly your oyster. Whatever shade you’re feeling, you’ll be able to pull it off. Light skin gives you a blank canvas in many ways, simply due to the fact that there are no existing strong colours. Whether you want to go for a bright orangey-red or a darker, more subtle hint of maroon you’ll suit it regardless.
Light to Medium Skin
If you have light to medium skin, you should stay clear of the lighter and brighter shades of red. Instead, opt for shades that are cool and warm, like burgundies and cherries. This will add dimension to the face and add more colour. If you aren’t sure, you can try highlights before committing to dyeing your hair, which will give you a feel for the shade.
Medium to Dark Skin
For those with darker skin, there’s some good news. Darker skin goes great with vibrant colours as there’s more contrast, meaning that if you want a bright look you can get it. Additionally, darker reds that will leave a tint of colour are great too. However, we don’t recommend medium shade reds for darker skin as it tends to wash out your face.
