Guide To Choosing The Best Hair Color According To Your Skin Tone

Beauty, Diet & Health /

Getting new hairstyle never goes out of style as much as getting a new hair color. There’s a lot of trends in hair color like ombre or having the rainbow colors in your hair. But how can we really know if the color we’ve chosen matches with us? Well, consider this guide on how to choose the hair color that could be perfect for you.


Understanding Your Skin Tone

Most people just want to change their hair color because they find it cool and trendy. But ended up disappointed because it didn’t go well with their skin tone. Most people fall into one of three categories: warm, cool, and neutral. Figuring out where your complexion lies can seem confusing, but there are a few tricks:

  • Look for specific colors. The cool-toned skin has pink and olive undertones, while warm-toned skin has yellow and gold. Got a combo of any of the above? You’re probably neutral.

  • Match yourself with a celeb. When you’re looking for A-list color inspiration, try to pick out people with similar skin and eye coloring to your own. It’ll give you a much better idea of how the hue will actually look on you in the end.

  • Check your wrist. You’ll see the pinks, reds, blues, greens, and yellows there. This includes your veins, which are a great indicator of tone. If your veins are blue or purple, you’re likely cool-toned. If they are green, you are warm.

  • Or your eyes. “If you have a lot of gold specks in your eyes, usually your undertones are warm,” says George Papanikolas, a Matrix celebrity stylist who works with the Kardashians and Miranda Kerr. “If you have a lot of blues and greens, then you are usually cool.”


The rule of thumb for a hair color that will flatter your complexion: Pick a tone that’s opposite from your skin’s undertones. So, those with warm undertones might opt for a cooler color, and vice versa. The degree of importance varies from hair color to hair color, but it’s a good guideline to remember. And if you have neutral skin, you’re a lucky minority—everything looks good on you.

Here’s more on helping you chose the right hair color base on your skin tone.
