Which Shade of Red Hair Color is Best for You plus Coupon Code

Madison Reed sent me this article and I had to share it because this is a question I continuously ask myself! I have been asked in filling out beauty profiles if I have a cool or warm skin tone often. Usually to determine the best make up products or jewelry tones and I always go back and forth. Let alone choosing a good hair color for myself. If it weren't for Madison Reed's Colorists I would have no idea what shade to go with. Here, Madison Reed spells it out for us so enjoy ...



Fall is a perfect time to try some red hues. If you’ve ever fantasized about being a redhead, here are some basic tips to help you find your perfect shade.

Red Hair for Fall

First, decide if your skin has warm or cool undertones. Hold a piece of white paper up to your face:
  • If your skin coloring appears to be pink, you’re cool.
  • If it appears yellow or olive, you’re warm.
You can also look to the color of your eyes:
  • If you have brown eyes, warmer colors will compliment you more. Choose golden and coppery red shades.
  • If your eyes are light, like blue or green, choose a cooler red with mahogany or deep chestnut undertones.
Fair skin: A light strawberry blonde is beautiful.  Avoid mahogany tones that pale your already fair skin.
Medium skin: You can handle a deeper red, because there is more tone in your skin.  A medium coppery light brown or auburn shade would be gorgeous. Avoid wine shades that bring out yellow in the skin.
Dark skin: Go with a dark auburn to a mahogany red or a rich, chestnut brown. Avoid intense shades of red, as they can bring out subtle green undertones in dark skin.

A few things to consider when going red:

  • Watch out when coloring over existing color. It could effect the tone and depth of the red you desire. Do a strand test before coloring all over.
  • Add a gloss between colorings to keep your red vibrant. You can choose a clear gloss or a tinted one that will wake up and extend your color.
  • Red color tends to fade more quickly, so it’s essential that you use a shampoo and conditioner formulated for color treated hair, such as Madison Reed's Madison Reed nourishing, color enhancing shampoo and conditioner set, to protect and extend your color.
