Who Said Red Heads Can’t Wear Pink?

Growing up I always wanted red hair.  It was beautiful, fun and fiery. I thought it was a shame that my youngest brother was the red head and not me. However after a bad dye job in college, I grew to appreciate my brown hair and embrace my natural color.

One thing that you rarely hear when you have brown hair is that you shouldn’t wear certain colors but red heads hear it all the time. It’s one of those style cliques that seems to resonate and continue through the years.

I happen to disagree with this. I’m not encouraging red heads to run out and buy the first pink piece of clothing they see but rather to pick a shade that compliments their hair. Choose a pattern with pink in it or a soft tone that doesn’t clash. Rules are meant to be broken and there is always the exception to the rule.

  1. Ha, My father and one of my brothers had red hair. While my mother, two other brothers and I had blond. The redheads in the family got bad sunburns and we blonds never worried about the sun.
