Fashion Tips for Flannel Hair
Capitalize on the gorgeous fiery color of this fall trend by wearing shades that are the perfect complement to your flannel hair look. We know that redheads always look stunning in green, and this melt of red and orange hues is no exception. Bring out the best from your flannel hair by wearing shades of green, especially emerald green which will look stunning with this hair.
If you choose a shade of flannel hair that is more coppery, wear shades of blue, to complement the color and draw out the beautiful colors of autumn. On that same note, if your chosen hair shade leans toward warmer tones, avoid wearing orange which can wash you out and make your hair look too brassy.
Shades of purple can create a great corresponding look with your hair color, especially if you choose hair colors that are a mix of those great deep shades of magenta and burgundy.

This new shade of hair is definitely bold, so you may have to avoid the heavy eye or lip colors you were used to wearing. Avoid eyeshadows in blues and greens, instead use eyeshadows with metallic finishes. Shades of gold, copper, and bronze will make your hair color pop. Bring out the fire of your hair with a dusting of bronzer. Match lipstick and blush to the undertones of your hair.
Choosing the Flannel Hair Color that Looks Good on You
Red hair colors can be flattering for every skin tone, but the secret is to know which shade looks best for you. It’s just like red lipstick, every woman can rock a red lip, but not every shade of red looks best on every woman.
With are so many shades of flannel hair out there, it can be overwhelming to find the right hue to compliment you. The trick is to figure out what looks best with the shades and undertones of your skin.
If you have more of a golden skin tone, choose shades of coppers, oranges, and golds to create your flannel hair blend. If you have a darker complexion or olive skin, look for cooler blue-reds like a mulled wine, mahogany or burgundy that has more violet tones.
How to Care for Flannel Hair
Hair color as complex as flannel hair will need a little more TLC to maintain its autumnal glory. Keep colors rich and vibrant by shampooing less (just three times a week will do!). When you do wash, take care by using a color-safe and sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. A monthly gloss at the salon will also help to give your hair color a boost and maintain the tone you’re looking for.
You don’t want to use any at-home color shampoos though. While blonde tresses get an added benefit from purple shampoos, those with flannel hair may have a difficult time finding a color-altering shampoo that will match the overall tone of their red locks.
While red hair might be the trickiest of colors to maintain, anyone who wants to embrace fall colors and make a bold statement needs this trend in their life.
