There's no substitute for holding fabric of various colors up to your face and seeing what suits you. Not all redheads look good in the same colors, as IllusionsOfNormal's post points out. I think it's the skin coloring/undertones/whatever that counts the most.



Yeah.  I went shopping for fabric on Saturday with my daughter, and she didn't get that at all..  *sigh*  But I have to make do with the shopping assistants I'm given.  Wink

Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

Absolutely! Hold the various colors up close to your face (in daylight) and just see which ones make your own personal color palette sizzle.... look at your skin tones, and look at how some just flat make you look more alive (some will actually drain your color and make you look like a dead fish- don't pick those  Grin)

Though if you're going for a zombie/undead costume for Halloween, those might be the good choices!

Green for sure... I have blue eyes and hair colored using henna and I love wearing green- it's my fav color combo...

Here is an example with the henna.



This pic is using a regular hair color from a salon.

I have red hair, blue eyes, and fair skin with freckles. I wear blue, green and grey almost exclusively. I think the blue would look amazing with your hair color. Purples and pinks with naturally red hair usually look disastrous.
