It still amazes me every day that it is already March 2017. Where has the time gone? Before we know it, spring will have finally sprung and the weather will be nice and warm. At the beginning of the year, Pantone announced its new colors for the season as well as the 2017 color of the year: Greenery. If you are confused about what “Greenery” entails allow me to explain; greenery is based on nature and natural greens ranging anywhere from lime green to Kelly green to emerald green. The whole greenery theme is to tribute nature and Pantone says that it symbolizes “new beginnings.” As human beings, we desire to change and rejuvenate ourselves throughout, much like trees and other foliage do. This color green reminds us the feeling we get when spring begins and we see green grass and flowers bloom. This greenery theme has reflection and meaning behind it which makes it even more desirable to wear on ourselves.  I know some people are terrified to wear the color green and complain it is unflattering on them but that could not be further from the truth. If green looks bad on you it means it might just be the wrong green on the right person. You are in luck, (no St. Patrick’s Day pun intended), because I can tell you what green will look great on you based on your hair color. This way, you can comfortably wear and respect the color green!


Light green and light hair

Since blonde hair is light enough as it is, it becomes difficult at times to throw on dark color. Sometimes the contrast just doesn’t work. Some of the most beautiful pastels look amazing on blondes and green is definitely no different!

Army Green for Brunettes

Brunettes have a semi dark hair therefore the green they wear has to be semi dark as well. Army green is the perfect combination of a light, dark, and neutral green-- much like brown hair!

Redheads in Kelly Green

Luckily red heads can pull off many different greens since it perfectly contrasts with their red hair. However, my favorite green to see on red heads is Kelly green. It is very cute and fitting!

Black Hair and Dark Green

If you have black hair, you have to shy away from the lighter greens because they will not accentuate you properly. In this case, contrast is a bad thing, you should match dark with dark-- dark hair and dark green. An emerald green is perfect for the girls with black hair!
