Accent color for dread wig - MORE PICS ADDED AT END

Post by Librarynerd » Sun May 15, 2011 11:27 pm

I've started working on a new dread wig and I'm having a hard time finding an accent color. I'm going to use maroon kk that matches the base wig and some black solid and black/maroon transitionals, but I'd like to add one more color that really pops.
Any ideas?

i think if you could blend a nice deep golden yellow, that would look nice.

White! It looks so amazing against burgundy.

I'd be tempted to go with a bright neon yellow...or maybe emerald green

So many great ideas! Time to dig into my KK stash and experiment.

Thank you all so much:) I would never have thought of some of the colors you suggested. Inspiring.

I think a royal blue or a pink would look great. Maybe white?

I know it's likely been overdone, but I like baby pink with burgundy.

I've made some quick and dirty dreads to pin on the wig to compare color combo's. These are the colors I had laying around, mostly natural tones.
Base Color(BC), cherry/redwine, BC, Black to BC trans, BC, redwine
Image

brown/gold, BC, white/redwine, BC, redwine/brown/gold
Image
Here they are all together.

What do you think?
I just ordered a bunch of KK (Oy Vey!) for this and other projects so I'll try some other combo's.

That looks sooo good! You've got an amazing eye for color. I love that brighter red and think it would look great sprinkled in more
