Red hair? - January 28th 2013, 05:17 PM

Was wondering what people think of dark red hair? I was thinking about dying my hair a dark red but don't know if it'll look right since I am extremely pale with blue eyes. I don't want it to wash me out. Pic of me attached below

Red dye stays with your hair foreverrrr. I dyed mine three years ago and although I've dyed it brown over that a million times, there's still a red tint to my hair. Just to you know.
I think if you keep it dark enough, like more of a reddish brown, maybe, it will look good. Ask your hairdresser, too. They usually have good advice on what would look good on you.

Sorry I couldn't be there, I was tied to a rocking chair.

I think it will suit you You have dark hair anyway so a bit of red shouldn't make you look paler

Red is a bitch to get out btw. It also fades pretty easily.

I think you'd look good with dark red hair. Also, you're super pretty.

If dark hair doesn't wash you out, then red won't. I think it would like nice, but as others said it fades really fast but it also stains.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I dyed my hair an auburn color and I liked it. I didn't go full on red but it had reddish tint to it. I was a bit nervous about it at first because I hadn't done much to my hair other than highlighting it. I naturally have red undertones in my hair (or so my hair stylist pointed out when we did it) so she said it wouldn't effect it too much.

It looked something like this I supposed:

Red does stay in your hair but it can be worth it and I think it would definitely look good on you. If you have someone who does your hair you could ask them what they think and they would probably be able to help you find the best color to suit you and all of that.

I've dyed my hair a bright bright cherry red and I still have a red tint in my hair after dying it black. I think it would look great! And if you don't like it, just dye your hair back.
