Red Hair for Your Skin Tone

Updated on October 16, 2014

The Best Red Hair Shade for Your Skin Tone

How to choose the most flattering and natural-looking shade of red hair for your skin tone? Although you've finally spotted the perfect red hair on the fashion magazine, it's important to realize that the color of your skin tone can affect whether that hair color looks perfect on your as well, or whether there's a different shade more suited to you. This is a lesson I've learned after years of choosing the wrong red hair shade for my skin.

Here are examples of the best shades of red hair for light, medium, olive, or dark skin tones. If you are not sure of your skin tone, ask a professional for his or her view. A hairdresser or cosmetics expert will advise you on your coloring and what red hair shades will and won't work for you.

How to Get the Perfect Red Hair Shade for Light Skin Tones

For blondes or those who want a subtle red shade, try a strawberry blonde. This works great with pale skin tones because it won't overpower your coloring. Keep your color choice on the lighter side. Dark reds will wash out your skin coloring, so opt for the subtler reds such as terra-cottas.

Light brunettes and dark blondes can add a hint of red that will blend with their natural hair and give a slight but noticeable boost to their hair color.

Remember a little bit of red goes a long way. To ease yourself into the realm of red, try adding red highlights.

Stick to the warmer shades of red. Deep violet reds won't work, so choose warmer, softer shades.

How to Get the Perfect Red Hair Shade for Medium Skin Tones

Medium skin tones should stick with medium red hair shades. Auburns are a great choice as long as they're not too dark (dark shades will make your skin looks pale and washed out).

Lowlights in a shade that is slightly darker and redder than your natural color are a great introduction into red. If you're unsure if red is for you, start slowly with this method.

Avoid extremely bright reds such as bright coppers or light orange-reds. A medium reddish brown is likely to compliment your coloring without looking drastic.

How to Get the Perfect Red Hair Color for Olive Skin Tones

Olive skin tones should choose cooler red shades. Burgundies and violet-based colors will flatter your skin tones best.

Avoid very light reds, such as strawberry blonde and bright auburn. Deep mahogany reds are subtle and a great introduction into red hair shades for your skin tone.

For a fun look, try having panels of slightly different reds applied throughout your hair. This dimensional look is eye-catching and will make you the center of attention.

Darker skin also generally pairs will with cooler red shades. A deep burgundy is usually the most flattering shade. However, Kelis has gone for a bolder red and Tyra has worked a Lindsay-Lohan-copper, so you have a wide range of options available depending on your personality.

Other Factors for Choosing a New Hair Color

Of course, there is more than just skin tone to consider when choosing the perfect shade of red. In the end, you should choose the color with which you feel comfortable.

Other factors that come into play when choosing hair shade include how much you want your hair to stand out. Women who are looking to get noticed may choose a more daring or intense shade of red. Other women prefer not to draw attention to themselves, simply seeking nice hair.

Don't worry if you've chosen a color that didn't turn out quite the way you wanted. Touching it up with a more appropriate color is easy, and there is a flattering, radiant shade for everyone.

Some Tips for Coloring Hair Red

  • A warm red that's a little bit lighter than your natural shade will give you a nice glow.
  • If you're a natural brunette, try a rich ruby red color. This shade is quite eye-catching.
  • If you have green eyes and a fair complexion, try s a true copper (orange tone)—it can look very sophisticated.
  • The most daring red is fire-engine red. It will look excellent if you have light skin and blue eyes.

      Thank you for some other informative website. Where else may I get that type of info written in such an ideal way? I've a mission that I'm just now operating on, and I've been on the look out for such information. bgdcebceefec

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      I prefer natural red hair..at least, I assume. However, the most I could hope to ever achieve would be dyed. My mother has fairly vibrant natural red hair. But I prefer a more dull autumn leaf/pumpkin color.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      I'm a natural redhead, we do it better. However, I am disappointed that this article chose to not include tips for women of color who would like to achieve red hair.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Hello I has redhead girlfriend but she is full red hair no fake real nation .

      Thanks :))))

      Natural!!!

    • Susan Holland 3 years ago from Southwest Missouri

      I come from a family of beautiful, natural red heads. Unfortunately, my red hair is more of a dirty red with blonde, so I gave up and went a lot of blonde highlights and my original red hair as streaks.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      looks nice and flirty

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Natural, sigh. Breathtaking.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Natural red hair is always better, but if you can find the right shade and pool it off, do it!

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Anyone can dye their hair red, but natural redheads are so unreal. Plus, dyed red hair always has that

      fake look to it. Even if it's a natural red color.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      I don't know if I like to be a redhead, something weird happened to me!!! - till I was 15/16 I was dirty blonde, then my skin went VERY pale, more freckles and reddish hair, copper - sometimes is very red!, never dyed ever! (my granma was a redhead) - I feel unique and strange sometimes...and I feel most men don't like! - but red hair is such a unique and fiery colour so sometimes I like, especially when people ask if it's natural and wants to touch it on the subway ;) !!!!!!!!

    • lovehappiness071 3 years ago

      Natural redhead would be great.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      It's always better having it natural, you can always tell whether it's dyed or not.

      some brunettes seem to achieve red hair by natural hair lightening remedies

      p.s. splat is amazing

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I think natural red is the best. It's such a rare, unique color, it's amazing to have. Dyed red can look great too, I just wish I was a natural ginger.

      I am a real/natural red-head....but at some point all women must address grey/white hair. The selections of red-hair dye still has a long way to go to be available and diverse enough to be acceptable to all shades of red-heads.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I'm dying mine though.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I'd love natural red hair. I was born a brunette with red lights, so now I use henna which brings out the red and gives lovely natural colours. But beware, it does go a tad orange! But it suits me and it's safe.

      red make women look brave and lovely

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      If you have a lot of different nationalities mixed then you may feel like you were born with the wrong color of hair,like I had blonde hair and brown eyes and always accused of dying my hair,my dad is dark and my mom is light.I am mixed somewhere in the middle,I have a bit of natural red in my hair since my grandmother is a natural true redhead.

      I have dirty blonde hair that i dyed blonde a few times and im trying to get red hair because my green eyes look good with red hair i wish my hair was naturally red then you wouldn't have to use harmful dyes.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Natural as I have.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Annie' - There's nothing on here for black people because anything other than their natural color doesn't look natural, ESPECIALLY red and blonde.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I love the look of natural bright strawberry blonde hair and copper penny red hair, but I'm a natural medium wheat blonde, so I dye it the same strawberry shade Deborah Ann Woll uses. It think it suits me better; instead of blending in with my hair, my very fair golden/peach toned skin stands out and it really makes my green eyes *pop* too.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I'm a natural redhead, but my color is fading. My hair is still red, but it has faded to a more subtle coppery color. I'm thinking of dyeing it back to something like its original more intense red, but then a lighter copper would look good, too . . . .

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I'd much rather have natural reds so i dont have to keep up with it, but my red faded out of my hair when i was 10 so now its dirty blonde with a reddish highlighter when hit by the sun the right way. oh well

      Although I think it looks awesome when a natural redhead dyes it a deeper shade of hair, since most gingers have ''orange-looking'' hair.

      as long as it looks natural it doesn't matter

      Natural is good

      I love red hair. Women with red hair are attractive and so special. :)

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Natural always looks better, but I was born unlucky. I have very plain and boring light brown hair.

      I'd totally dye my hair a bright copper,or something along those lines. Think of Rose Leslie's hair which is gorgeous! I have the looks of a ginger, the freckles and pale skin, but am missing the hair :)

      Ill have to say natural hair color because red is a really pretty hair color and those with it are lucky because not to many people have it naturally I don't have red hair but I have always wanted to have red hair even tho I'm going to have to dye it naturals are better

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      whatever

    • aaxiaa lm 5 years ago

      natural, but not everybody are born this way so a little help is much appreciated.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      natural, because its authentic.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Im a natural red head! and i'm 18, but i feel my color has faded and i want my red back so i'm thinking about dying it like the one with the medium skin color and letting it set into its original color again!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Whatever hair colour you have got you should be proud of because god has given it to you and you should appreciate.Anyway natural red is better because you don't have to match the type of red,you already have itîîî

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I'm not natural and my hair is dyed a strong red but "softer-looking" rather than vibrant and out there. However, I would have loved to have natural red hair, especially like the colour of Deborah Ann Woll or Karen Gillan up there (even though I heard Deb's is actually dyed! it looks fantastic), because it's more like a natural beauty. But the more vibrant tones you can get with dyed red hair is definitely fun and eye-catching as well, so I like both.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      It doesn't matter

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I like red hair in general, and although I prefer natural, I don't mind either way, as long as it looks good.

        dyed red hair

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Both could be pretty. But dyed gives you more of a deep/light red. Whichever you're going for. I'm a natural blonde, and I just dyed my hair a reddish blonde yesterday. Looks great!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        both, but they both have downsides. If you're naturally red, it's really hard to get that pigment out of your hair if you want to change to a different color. Red Dye fades more easily but is hard to get completely out of your hair and you may be stuck with a brassy tone for awhile.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I like dyed red heir. Kinda unnatural red hair

        I've been blonde my whole life and have very fair skin and blue eyes, I'd like to try some shade of red. My skin undertone is pink, so as far as seasons go, I'm probably a summer, what shade of red will do?

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Why not both

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I think both are very beautiful in their own way, but I lean more towards dyed red hair. I love the darker shade because it's very similar to my favorite color burgundy. I also think it looks incredible with pale skin and has a more punk-like feel, which I'm fond of.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I wanna red on my hair. ð

I started dying my hair red with in the last year and I do like it but undecided which red is best for me. My natural hair color was a pretty blond. It stared to get darker in my late twenties and of course I stared with the highlights and for many years after. Need help choosing a proper red. Looking forward for your help. Thanks

        Why oh why do i have to have olive type skin? It might look so FAKE!! But then again it might be because people's skin is like orange. like Ariana Grande about 3 months ago. IDK if shes still fake tanned though but she looked REAL FAKE

        Forcing me to pick a side. >3<. I Say neither But i have to pick so....yeah

        Love to enhance natural red hair...there is a shade of red for everyone...anyone can wear red...it does depend on the skin tone. You covered this very well!

        dyes red hair

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        probably prefer dyed, i feel guilty!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        i dont mind, as long as it suits the person, the shade of red in the above picture is exactly what i want. my hair naturally looks just like that, but is a light brown with natural blonde and auburn highlights, i just want to add more red to brighten it up

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        DYED. Way better tone, cuter too!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        well my hair is aurburn and when i was little i loved it but now i would like to go for a daring red as i am pale and have blue eyes

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Dyed

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Dyed of course. When you dye your hair red you can play with so many different shades, highlights, lowlights, tones, etc.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        dyed is always the most vibrant!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Dyed....natural red heads have pasty colored skin and burn too easily in sun. I love my olive skin tone and I look great with any hair color

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        The prettiest red hair, in my opinion is always the dyed. The natural ones always look more orange (not that it isn't pretty) I just prefer dyed more.

        I am naturally dark brown but I prefer dyed red for myself but not the bright fire engine red more of a burgandy it looks sophisticated and suits almost everyone

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Dyed red every time. I have plum power and used to be boring blonde. I look younger&healthier.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Natural red hair is not really red. I know what I'm saying ladies, I have natural "red" hair and lets get real. Natural "red" hair is actually on the O-R-A-N-G-E side. Yep, I said it. But it can look VERY pretty. I was born with hair the shade of a new, clean shining penny. However, if you want it red (actually) then go get it dyed! Dyed hair looks the best all the way!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        dyed

        Dyed red hair

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Um why are people saying "what about black people?" This is about making it look natural and you know damn well you've never seen one of us with red hair so there's no way to make it look natural anyway

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        My hair is naturally a strawberry blond but for a long time I colored it a dark black/brown but now its a deep copper-y brown but the red really pops in the sun and it looks really good with my fair skin and blue/grey eyes

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Most celebrities that are admired for their red hair aren't natural redheads, so I doubt that dyed red hair doesn't look as good.

          @anonymous: That is incredibly shallow for you to "feel sorry" for people with a certain colour hair. I feel sorry for you and your narrow minded views, that you should probably learn to keep to yourself. Didn't your mother teach you that if you haven't anything nice to say you shouldn't say anything at all. On another note, and a bit of advice, if you weren't so shallow you wouldn't feel so bad about yourself. Really!

          Hi. I really liked this article, because i really want to die my hair some shade of red, but that's one thing that this article couldn't help me with exactly. I have a medium skin tone and have seen the recommendations for that skin tone, but i have bluish grey eyes and wasn't sure if any shade of red looked ok with that. I have tried the programs that switches your hair color, but that doesn't work right.Hmm. But i like the article, well written, and it was pretty helpful. Thanks- I guess ill ask my hairdresser.

          I've got naturally red and I grew up hearing how ugly and horrible it is. My mother used to want to bleach it blond all through elementary school. She'd tell me how nasty red hair is and she kept hers platinum blonde her whole life. I've never seen her natural color. Ever. So in all honesty, I hate red hair. It has never been accepted by society ("red-headed stepchild," "gingers have no soul,") and my own upbringing reinforced society's message. I prefer blonde or pink or purple. ANYTHING but red.

          I'm a guy and I guess I don't have much say, but if your skin is lighter in color, you'll match a lighter red hair color. If your skin tone is darker, auburn and darker reds will work for you.
