More precisely, these impressive red hues may go from reddish brown to chestnut red, which differentiates the cool redhead from the soft reddish blond aura of the ginger type. The catchy appearance of the cool redhead gives her a unique enigmatic character: A characteristic that remind us of the attractive shades of autumnal leaves, which is what gives us the ultimate fashion color inspiration for this color type. Therefore: Every hue that shimmers under the autumnal sun, from the deepest red to the brightness gold, will give us the best ideas for the cool redhead color type!
