Red and green are the classic colors of Christmas. It’s always fun to dress the part in the holiday season, and redheads should really take advantage of these wonderful colors. Unfortunately, many think redheads can’t wear red, but they are wrong, wrong, wrong. Red is a great accessory color, especially when paired with the most “redhead friendly” color of them all, green.

See how redheads can rock green & red this Christmas:

Green: Green is the perfect complement to red hair. Green looks the best next to your hair, so green earrings, scarves, and tops are perfect! The deeper the green, the more your hair will contrast and stand out.

Red: Red can look FANTASTIC on redheads despite the beliefs that it contrasts with your hair. The trick is finding the right shade that goes well with your unique hair color. If you have brighter, coppery, or more orange hair, darker reds will work best. If you have darker hair (more auburn or brown), you can wear light or dark red as long as it isn’t too orange.

Tip: The closer the red shade is to orange, the more likely it is to conflict with the undertones in your hair.

Pops of red are usually best, lipstick, shoes, jewelry, or long gloves.

How to Wear Green & Red Together: The trick is to always use green as the base color. The accents of red will stand out, and the green base will work best with your red hair. Choose a deep green because it will offset the red accents and make your hair look like a fashionable accessory too.

Rock it like a Redhead!
