How to Choose the Right Hair Color for Your Skin Tone

How to Choose the Right Hair Color for Your Skin ToneWe all know that changing your hair color can morph your entire look. But switching up your hair color is not as easy as choosing out a color you like.

When you’re trying to find the best hair color, you need to pay attention to your skin tone and your undertones. You want to make sure your skin tone and hair color complement one another. Blonde hair may look good on your best friend, but it may make you look washed out.

To find out exactly which shades of hair color work best on your skin tone, we asked the experts. Consider the suggestions below and pick the hue that looks best on you.

Dark – warm tones

A solid deep brown or dark auburn brown will flatter you overall look and bring out the golden undertones in your skin.

Dark – cool tones

People with dark skin tone looks best in hues such as deep coffee shade of brown or violet-based red. A warm bronze color will look too orange due to the blue undertones in your skin.

Medium – warm tones

If you have warm undertones, choose a hair color that leans towards auburn, dark golden brown and chestnut. Then highlight using a red base like copper and cinnamon to soften the darkness and brighten up your face.

Medium – cool tones

An ash-toned or deep dark brown may look good on you, but please stay away from hair color that’s too red.

Fair skin -Warm tones

The lighter your skin tone, the paler you can go with your hair. Enhance your skin’s natural glow with hues of honey, strawberry blonde and butterscotch. Steer clear of ashy shades because they’ll just wash you out.

Fair skin – Cool tones

If you have cool tones, go for ashy blonde, pale yellow or platinum to complement your ivory complexion. Avoid golden shades as they will make you look pink. Pair it with red lipstick to ensure that your facial features don’t get lost.
