Know Your Skin Tone

When choosing a new hair color, you want to make sure it will look good. The best way to do this is to match your color with your skin tone.

There are three different skin tones: cool, warm, and neutral. To determine your skin tone, you can look at the color of your skin to determine if you have yellow or red undertones, examine the flecks in your eyes, or look at the veins in your wrist. Those with cool tones tend to have skin that is a little more pale and burns easily in the sun. Cool toned people may also have bright blue eyes with green flecks or dark brown eyes, Additionally, those with cool-toned skin may have veins that look slightly blue or purple in color.

Warm-toned people, on the other hand, tend to have warmer, sun-kissed looking skin and veins that are more green in color. Those with warm-toned skin may also have light brown or hazel eyes with golden flecks in them.

If you are someone with a neutral skin tone, you may have characteristics of both warm and cool skin tones. That being said, even those who have neutral skin tones may lean more towards either cool or warm colors.

Understanding your skin tone can help you determine what hair colors will look best and complement the color of your skin. Below, we’ve outlined what hair colors look best with each skin tone:

Cool Tones – If you have a cool skin tone, you can rock bright, bold colors as much as you want! Consider trying an outlandish red, blue, or purple color to help you stand apart from the crowd. If you’re someone who likes more natural colors, it’s best to stick with more ashy colors and stay away from brassy, copper colors.

Warm Tones – Warm tones, as you can imagine, should follow the opposite advice. While you may love the bright, bold colors, they may not look the best with your skin tone. Instead, try for more rich, dark colors, such as chocolate brown. If you’re really determined to add a pop of color to your life, you can choose a bright copper red!

Neutral Tones – The great thing about neutral tones is that you can look good in just about anything! However, if you know that you tend to look better in either cooler or warmer tones, you may want to stick with those suggested colors.
