A ginger wig is something that can be so versatile, from cosplaying as Ginger Spice, to everyday wear. This article will showcase some of the best ginger wigs available to you.
Depending on your skin tone, there is a perfect colour of ginger hair for you. Here are some examples…
Fair skin tone
A fair skin tone is somebody who has fair skinned tones with an often yellow undertone. For somebody with this skin tone, a deep ginger colour that is slightly red is best as a darker ginger colour does not contrast with your skin tone as much as a lighter ginger will.
Pale skin tone
For those who have very pale skin, the best colour is definitely something lighter and more vibrant. A more orangey ginger as it will give you more of a lively appearance.
For those who have fair skin with a pink undertone, a chestnut ginger is perfect for you. It’s slightly darker than a vibrant ginger and will definitely bring out those pink undertones in your skin.
For those who have red undertones in their skin, a deep crimson colour will look incredible. Highlighting the blush in your cheeks and if you have darker blue or grey eyes, this darker hair colour will make your eyes stand out more too.
Medium skin tone
For those who have a medium skin tone ranging to tanned, the best colour of ginger for you is likely an auburn or mahogany red colour. It works particularly well with those who have either yellow or pink skin undertones.
For those who are tanned, a darker red will be best for you. One that looks brown with red tones throughout, especially when the light hits it. It will definitely work to brighten your natural glow.
For somebody who has deeper tanned skin, a wine toned red will work perfectly. Although, a coppery red will also work great with this skin tone, as well as a mahogany red colour, or even some bright oranges.
Darker skin tones
For those with a darker skin tone, a wine toned or burgundy red, or a mahogany red will work extremely well.
Dark skin with golden hue
If you have darker skin with a golden undertone, an almost cinnamon ginger colour will work perfectly for you.
Dark skin with blue undertone
If you have dark skin with a blue undertone, then may even wish to go for a more vibrant colour such as a bright or burnt orange, as the orange complements the natural blue undertones. Deep red or bright red will also go well with this skin tone.
Deep and rich skin tone
If you have a deeper and more rich skin tone, a wine coloured red will work best for you, perhaps also a cherry red. An auburn ginger will also complement your skin tone well and have you looking and feeling great.
It’s also worth noting that if you have blue eyes, then certain gingers will ensure that they stand out more than others. A coppery ginger is perfect for this, so if you have blue eyes and fair skin, copper is perfect for you.
Light grey/green eyes
For those with lighter eye shades and a pale skin tone with a pink undertone, strawberry ginger will look great on you. The strawberry ginger will most definitely complement your pink undertones.
Darker ginger colours such as cherry red or auburn tend to work better with dark eyes as they make them stand out more by complimenting them.
Now onto some cosplay ideas, here is a list of some characters who you can cosplay with your new ginger wig:
