It’s almost Redhead Season. We definite it as the third season of the year, when red leaves bloom and fall, replicating the many shades of red hair. It’s also a time when redheads start to change their wardrobe… and their nails! 

Here are a 7 hot ‘Redhead-Friendly’ fall nail trends we think you should try: 

1. Bring on the browns

Brown is a great neutral for fall and this shade always complements red hair. Right now, brown nails are all the rage. Try doing a subtle brown design, or mix and match shades of brown to get the perfect look. The great thing about brown is they are versatile and you can opt for darker or lighter based on what looks good with your skin tone.

2. Maybe some merlot?

Dark reds have always been popular for fall and this year will be no exception. Red is neutral for nails and looks good on all skin tones. Deep reds like merlot, maroon, and burgundy look exceptionally good with fair skin (and freckles).

3. A pop of mustard

Most people tend to lean dark for their fall nails, but if you want a pop of color, mustard is the way to go. It’s flattering on redheads and goes great with other fall colors.
