As awesome as it is to be a redhead, there are also some challenges. After talking for a few moments to this Fashionista, I found out that it’s not always the easiest thing being a redhead when trying to find things/colors to wear that don’t clash with your hair.

How To:  For you red heads out there listen up! To look fabulous and really rock those red locks like this Fashionista, follow these fashion tips! Look for an olive green top. The two different tones of green in this top with help bring out your hair color.  Pair it with a pair of black jeans or slacks.
