Typically, hair and skin must complement each other to look flattering, which is why it’s important to do your research on which hair color goes best with your skin tone. It’s easy to find a picture of a hair color you want and think it’ll look the exact same on you as it does on the model. The reality is there are many things that may make you unique and different from the model such as skin tone and eye color. Check out these hair color tips based on skin tone.
Fair Skin Tone
If you have fair skin with pink or red undertones and colored eyes, you should opt for a lighter hair color. Colors like silver or platinum blonde will complement this skin tone the best. If you have a warmer undertone such as yellow or golden and brown eyes, you want a warmer hair color as well. Some examples of these would be strawberry blonde or honey.
Medium Skin Tone
Tanned and naturally darker skin tones tend to look best with warmer, darker hair colors. Typically hair colors look best when they are darker than your skin tone, so make sure you don’t choose a color that matches your skin too closely. Some colors may include caramels, mocha and golden browns, honey blonde, and deep, earthy browns. These colors will complement your complexion, giving you a glowing look.
Dark Skin Tone
Women with dark skin can either go a few shades lighter than their skin tone or darker than their skin tone. Again, make sure the color isn’t too close to your skin tone to ensure it doesn’t wash you out. Some options you have are maple brown and toffee for warmer skin and inky black colors for cooler skin.
