Hair Color Tip No. 10: How to Find the Right Shade of Red

When choosing a shade of red hair color, you'll want to pick one that's not only flattering to your complexion but also makes it glow from within. Not sure you want to go red yet? Why not try a temporary color. These come in the form of mousse, hairspray, shampoo and wash out in a few washes. Be careful not to color already treated hair yourself.

To find if you can go red, you need to figure out if your skin has warm or cool undertones. Hold a piece a paper up to your face. If your skin coloring appears to be pink, you're a cool. If it appears yellow or olive, you're warm. Warm skin tones look best with all sorts of shades (except bright blonde). You can look great in red (dark, rich tones will counteract sallowness), however, cool skin girls should avoid reds because they bring out the pink in your skin.
