Now that the autumn/winter season has arrived, one of the biggest trends is to rock gold and silver metallic colors. It is everywhere! You’ll find clothes, handbags, nail polish, hair accessories, shoes and jewelry. This trend usually comes back in style during the colder seasons because metallics are deeper toned, work well to accessorize bulkier clothing and also complements red hair and skin- also known as “redhead friendly”!
But, with so many different gold and silver metallic tones, how do you determine what color looks good on you? Here are two simple tips on how to determine which metallic tone looks best with your red hair and skin:
1. Determine the shade of your red hair and color of your skin. If you’re on the warmer side (deeper red hair and ivory skin), choose gold metallic. If you’re on the cooler side (lighter red and freckled skin), choose silver. If you’re a mix of warm and cool, there are mixed metallic tones, too!
2. If the above trick isn’t helping you choose, try on the gold metallic and the silver metallic. Ask yourself: Do I light up in the face? Does the color make my hair pop and accentuate my face? If the answer is yes to all of the questions, then go with that color.
Rock it like a Redhead!
