Patterns and Hair Color
We consider a lot of things when we buy clothes, but hair color usually isn't one of them! Here are some tips for pairing patterns with your hair's hue.
People often forget about what patterns or colors will accentuate their hair color, and something like that can make a big difference to your look say Shannon Yoachum and Lauren Scruggs, editors of online magazine, LOLO.
Here are some of their tips:
- Stick with vibrant colors, but be sure to find the right shade. For example, an orangey-red doesn't look good on some, while a rich, true red looks great on most.
- Instead of tiny prints, try a spread out pattern that doesn't distract from your facial features and rich hair color.
- Purple is a universally flattering color on brunettes. Incorporate a pattern with purple!
- Stay away from neutral colors/patterns in the off-white and beige family. The bland color doesn't flatter blondes and can even wash them out.
- To wear neutrals like beige, make sure the pattern contains other bright colors. For example, a navy and beige chunky stripe.
- Pick interesting patterns such as paisley in pinks, blues and gold.
- Stay away from pinks and oranges that might clash with your hair color.
- Wear soft floral patterns in colors like emerald green and black that complement red hair.
