First of all, can we please slow clap for my rhyming title!!
Anyway, it’s been two weeks since I’ve ditched all memories of life as a blonde and joined team red hair again! I got my hair colored by Barri, owner of Ruby Red Roots in South Orange, NJ, and we came up with a reddish brown with some copper dimension. Since then, I’ve definitely felt myself being more conscious of what colors I can or should wear with my hair color, so here are four colors that I think look great on black women with red hair.
The color blue already looks amazing on brown skin, but with red hair, it pops even more! I chose a navy blue ombre dress for my new site pictures, and I can’t get over how amazing my hair looks against it! Blue is easy to integrate in your wardrobe because most denim is blue, but there are also a ton of wearable shades from teal to navy depending on whether you prefer bright colors or more subdued ones like me.
Yellow is another primary color that looks good with red hair and brown skin. I’ve slowly been adding yellow into my wardrobe and I am not at all mad about it. I often go through phases where I’ll wear all one color (it was olive green last fall, and red in the winter) and yellow is definitely my summer color.
I’m actually not a huge fan of wearing pink, especially now that millennial pink has taken over everything. But pink actually looks pretty good on brown girls with red hair, especially if their hair is on the deeper spectrum of red. Perfect for girly days and matching a glass of rosé!
Don’t argue with me that white isn’t a color, just go buy some more white clothes! White is so classic and really pops against brown skin, and even more so with red hair. I’m going to Japan tomorrow and most of my entire vacation wardrobe is white! Here are some of my selects, you’ll have to stay tuned to my insta to see how I styled them!
