Pantone ‘Color of the Year’ 2018: Ultra Violet Fashion For Redheads


Every year, the gods of Pantone announced their ‘Color of the Year’, and aren’t we lucky, because 2018’s winner is also an extremely redhead-friendly shade! Ultra Violet 18-3838 is a deep, rich and warm shade of purple that complements ginger hair with much aplomb (more like a-plum, am I right?).

Purple is well-known to complement redheads, both of their ginger hair and pale skin. The colour contrasts and adds vibrancy to red hair, but at the same time doesn’t wash out fair complexions, making it a perfect pair with gingerness (lucky us, eh?).

With that in mind, here are some ultra violet inspired winter warmer fashion items to suit redheads…
