Red is a striking hair color and immense care needs to be taken when you are selecting it. Instead of going complete redhead, opting for a few skinny streaks is always safer. However, if you can find out which is the right shade of red for you, then you can go a complete redhead. There are various shades of this hair color which you can consider.

Color Compatibility

If you have a warm skin tone and eye color, then consider coloring your mane red.
People who have cooler skin complexion or cool eye colors should go for colors like shiny raven black or cool shades of blonde, like mink or icy white; while the hair highlights can be honey or wheat ash.
Warm skin complexion includes freckled complexion, pale complexion with peach or golden undertones, ruddy complexion, and brown skin tone with pink or golden undertones. The eye colors which belong to the warm category are hazel eyes with brown or golden flecks, green eyes, greenish blue eyes, and golden brown eyes.
If you are thinking of going red at home, then this is not a good idea as boxed dyes are horrible. So, it is better you seek professional hair instead of ending up a disaster. Loreal, Schwarzkopf, and Clairol are the best brands for red hair dyes. So, go to a stylist and discuss with him/her to find out the right shade.

This style suits fair skin tones and blondes. For light-colored hair, get some strawberry blonde tinge with shiny chunky highlights.
