How to Determine Which Shade of Red Hair Color is Best for You

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Fall is a perfect time to try some red hues. If you have ever fantasized about being a redhead, here are some basic tips to help you find your perfect shade.

Red Hair for Fall
First, decide if your skin has warm or cool undertones. Hold a piece of white paper up to your face:
  • If your skin coloring appears to be pink, you’re cool.
  • If it appears yellow or olive, you’re warm.
You can also look to the color of your eyes:
  • If you have brown eyes, warmer colors will compliment you more. Choose golden and coppery red shades.
  • If your eyes are light, like blue or green, choose a cooler red with mahogany or deep chestnut undertones.
Fair skin: A light strawberry blonde is beautiful.  Avoid mahogany tones that pale your already fair skin. (I just dyed my hair a strawberry blonde. I'm rather pale.)
Medium skin: You can handle a deeper red, because there is more tone in your skin.  A medium coppery light brown or auburn shade would be gorgeous. Avoid wine shades that bring out yellow in the skin.
Dark skin: Go with a dark auburn to a mahogany red or a rich, chestnut brown. Avoid intense shades of red, as they can bring out subtle green undertones in dark skin.

A few things to consider when going red:

  • Watch out when coloring over existing color. It could effect the tone and depth of the red you desire. Do a strand test before coloring all over.
  • Add a gloss between colorings to keep your red vibrant. You can choose a clear gloss or a tinted one that will wake up and extend your color.
  • Red color tends to fade more quickly, so it’s essential that you use a shampoo and conditioner formulated for color treated hair, such as Madison Reed's Madison Reed nourishing, color enhancing shampoo and conditioner set, to protect and extend your color.

Sunday's Jacksonville zoo trip (Wordless Wednesday)

Last Sunday we got rained out of the zoo so, we ended up at Chuck E Cheeses. This Sunday the weather was great. It was a little too humid but still fun.

Polyvore: Boys Fashion: Vol 8: Mario

Time for more boy fashion inspiration! Since Brayden has been in school I have absolutely loved picking his outfits everyday. Brayden has never been big on clothes. He only wears it if we're going somewhere. At home he just hangs out in his underwear.

I often put Brayden in jeans or shorts, and a tee. Most of the items in this collage are from Old Navy/Gap and Target. My favorite things on this collage are the jeans (BOTH of my boys need them now) and the green Yoshi shirt. Yoshi is and always has been my favorite Nintendo character. Brayden loves him because he's a dinosaur.

What's your favorite Nintendo character?
