I have an LED head lamp with the 'red light' mode. Generally, as my husband has made me aware many times - I look like a bit of tool when I wear my headlamp (but they're so handy! especially when you want your hands free). So I hung the headlamp around my neck, and that worked well.
The red light mode doesn't make your pupils contract so it's good for nighttime. Also gives a nice warm atmosphere.
