Finding the Perfect Hair Color for Your Skin Tone
Every skin tone has its own unique qualitities, and that’s a beautiful thing. From Ochre, to gold, and from Tawny to Light Beige, there are hundreds of combinations that range from Warm to Cool skin, and Light to Dark skin.
Combinations are endless, and that’s where true beauty lies. Now, a great way to make your beautiful skin stand out is to choose the right dye.
Of course there are no “rules” when it comes to matching your hair color, and your skin color, but there are some hues that can boost certain traits like warmth, brightness, and other features that contribute to your look.
I know what you’re thinking, “…there are lots of colors out there. Where do I start?” Here’s what you should know:
Determining your skin tone
According to Cassondra Kaeding, celebrity colorist, it’s as easy as holding a white piece of paper right next to your face while looking in the mirror. Keep an eye open to the following tones:
- Yellow, red, or pink: WARM SKIN
- Grey, Blue, yellow–green: COOL SKIN
If you have trouble deciding whether your skin belongs to the warm skin tones or cool skin tones, you might be somewhere in the middle and almost any hair color will fit you.
NOTE: Even if you have neutral skin there’s always a slight trend towards warm or cool tones. That’s a great way to choose highlights or balayage colors.
Choosing the right hair color
While finding a professional stylist can help you, it’s quite fun to find your matching color yourself. Just like those Facebook quizzes where you finally know what type of unicorn you are –yes, that’s a thing.
Once you find your skin undertone, just check this quick guide to find your ideal match:
- Light ash blond to medium ash brown (no highlights)
- Medium to dark ash brown or ash and bluish black (no highlights)
- Light golden blond to medium brown with golden highlights
- Red, auburn, or black with red or golden highlights.
Also, keep in mind that darker eye colors look best with darker shades, creating a nice complement to lighten eye color.
