Well, that decision comes down to how well a shade complements your natural coloring. While previously, we've investigated which colors look best on blondes, today we're tackling another hair color–and-clothing challenge: which hues redheads should embrace.

With the help of our favorite celebs, we carefully selected five colors that perfectly complement red hair. From bold to soft shades, keep reading to see which options are strikingly amazing colors for redheads.
