During a brief flirtation with red hair, I quickly discovered that nothing compliments it better than bright coloured clothing. Sandy neautrals and nude tones were relegated to the back of the wardrobe (the charity bin, even) with particular haste: in thinking of how they looked on, the words washed out spring to mind. As for what does work with red hair, bright red clothing is a surprise winner. In fact, I can’t think of a hair colour red doesn’t work with.
If you needed a case in point on the successful marriage of red-hair to red-clothing, here it is: Varsovian Rose by Julia Kiecksee. It’s also proof that, in the hands of the right stylist, there’s no such thing as red overkill. Red dress, red tights, red shoes, red hair…! With Helena Durda at the styling helm, it’s a fiery red fantasy rather than a crimson terror.
Against a cold yet beautiful backdrop the Varsovian beauty – Aleksandra P – is a red rose that grew from concrete. Michal Sadowski styled the beautiful hair, and makeup was by Koleta Gabrysiak. You can view the full shoot by Julia Kiecksee (www.juliakiecksee.de) by clicking on the gallery.
