All the redheads (natural OR dyed) get in here!!!

 I'm thinking about dying my hair red. But some women who have red hair (or did in the past) have told me that it clashes with a lot of colors, so there's certain colors you just can't wear. Is that true?

I'm asking because like 75% of my wardrobe is pink and I'm not sure that I want to dye my hair red if it's going to clash with every top I own.

So...is it true? Can I wear pink if I have red hair?

Depends on your shade of red hair but in general it doesnt go well with red or pink. Red hair really pops when you wear light blue...purple and bright green.

Depends on the shade
I've been several shades. The brighter you go the more limited you are it seems to me.

I have red hair and there are colors I can't wear, but that has more to do with my overall skin tone than just red hair. I think it's more the pale pink skin and red hair that have issues wearing pink or red.

 This is the color I'll be shooting for:

I want to try to find a color that's a touch darker than that, so it will FADE into this shade. I don't want to start out this color and then fade to bright orange.
