I don't get acne much anymore but I'm still on Accutane to make sure. But I am a bit red on the cheeks and this bothers me a little. Now, my hair colour at the moment is a medium brown and I was thinking on dying it black. I was thinking if I dyed it black would this improve my complection and make my face generaly look better. If my hair was black and my face was normal / red in places this would take less attention on my face because of the more difference in colour between my hair and face, and because my hair is black (a very dark colour) it wouldn't make my redness seem as red as it was before. But this is just guessing on my part. Does it have any truth? Is there a general rule about this, such as if your face is pale you should have light coloured hair, if not (such as redness) then go with dark hair?
I know this is edging slightly off-topic but acne is the reason my face is red in places and is why I'm thinking of dying my hair!
This is a good topic. I actually want to dye or add highlights to my hair (in a guy way ) but I don't want to until I'm comfortable with my skin. I hadn't thought about using hair to detract from skin. Anyway, I think I'm with you that a darker colour would give the appearance that your skin was less redenned. But to be sure why don't you try a wig Or you could be more high-tech and edit a digital photo of yourself in a photo application.
I don't think "redness" has anything to do with the actual color of your face. If in general you have darker skin, and it's also red, then your theory seems right. However, if you actually have pale skin, despite the redness, your skin is still pale, and darker hair will only make the redness stand out.
