It’s time to celebrate redheads! Her majesty, Lady Pantone, is a just ruler and introduced another splendid ‘redhead friendly’ hue.
Described as encouraging expanded creativity and originality, Radiant Orchid is fervent to enter your closet. “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm,” proclaims Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Rosy undertones found in this brilliant color radiate on the skin, creating a healthy glow. The unique blend of both cool and warm undertones is extremely flattering on redheads.
