This is a bit inane I suppose, but...

I have very highlighted and low lighted hair. My natural mouse is artificial 'tortoishell' colour:D. (My hair dresser calls it something like shades of blonde.....I have three or four blondes and a brown in there.

Often in autumn I put a little copper or strawberry blonde put through too. Its faded out by the other side of Christmas, red doesn't last well in my hair, but it just cheers up autumn a little! BUT, this year I developed rosacea. Most of the time I am in control of it, but I'm guessing any more warmth in my hair colour won't help flatter the flush in my skin when it occurs?

So should I ignore my usual recipe for autumn hair?:o

    They tend to warn against copper with redness in the face so possibly.Unless you cancel out the redness with a green colour correcter on your face?

    Yes, that's what I'm thinking :(. I just don't see me using a colour corrector everyday.

    Sigh.

    Something else goes.

    Thanks she girl. :). I just needed someone else to say it because everyone else keeps saying 'it'll be fine.....when I know really its a bad idea. :(

    Vanity sucks, huh?

    It does :(

    You never know though,there may be a shade of red you could get away with? If not,maybe a different colour?

    I'll probably just take the blonde down a little for autumn with a mid brown or caramel. :(

    I have fair skin, green eyes.....the warmth from a little red suited and gave a change....

    Never mind, eh? Life goes on.

    if you went for a brown you could ask your hairdresser to make sure it is in the warm colour spectrum. Warm colours always contain a lot of red without being an obvious red, so may be nearer to what you actually want if you know what I mean !!!!

    I have black hair naturally and is very cool and i am thinking of going into the warm spectrum although at the darkest end of the scale as cant be bothered with the roots

    Hm, that's a good point, I stick to the same shades of brown and light blonde and vary the tones in the middle, maybe I can 'nod my head to autumn' my changing the brown a little.

    I'm that sort of 'tortoiseshell' blonde/brunette mix that can look brassy.

    My hair growth, which is normally slow, has sped up too, so I am thinking of taking the blonde down a bit for a/w :).
