Red hair can make for a flamboyant, sexy change. It's easy to see why women of all colors would want to give it a whirl. Caramel-skinned beauties can pull off a little fire in their hair as long as it matches their skin tone. If you're cool-toned, your reds have lots of blue. If you're warm-toned, your reds have gold in them.
Auburn hair mixes in red with brown for a smooth color change that make caramel skin tones look sultry and sensual. This is a switch for cool-toned women who have pink in their cheeks or a bluish rosy glow under all that gold skin. Take the shade to mysterious depths with a hint of red wine that might even include a frisky purple glint.
Cinnamon is hot, hot, hot. This fiery shade is reserved for warm-toned caramel women who have pure golden undertones and brown, hazel or green eyes. You can get a healthy, exciting shimmer in cinnamon tones, too. The color is more dramatic than natural, but it's a show-stopper.
Ruby red is a funky neutral red that all caramel women can rock. Since an orange-red is too much for your skin color, a ruby hue gets you as close to a pure fire color as possible. Find a tone that has the right mix of blue in it to be truly neutral. If a ruby shade is too much for you, you can ask your colorist to desaturate the tone a bit or step it down a shade or two.
Your eyebrows don't have to match your red hair exactly. In fact, a perfect match would probably look pretty silly, but you can coordinate your brows for a contemporary, sophisticated style. Don't dye brows unnatural colors ever. Just ask your colorist to whisk in a little bit of a dark red lowlight that complements your exact skin color.
