Coordinate your hair color with your undertones

To determine what hair color will look best on you, first you need to determine the correct shade of color of your skin and your undertones. Finding your shade is fairly easy. You can be fair, medium, olive or dark. Determining your skin tone is a little trickier for some people. You could have a cool, warm or deep skin tone.

If you have a cool skin tone, you are most likely fair. You would usually have blue, gray, and greenish-blue with gray flecks or deep brown eyes. You tend to look healthiest in pure white clothing. The veins on your wrist have a blue tint and silver jewelry looks best on you.

If you have a warm skin tone, you probably have green, hazel, amber or warm brown eyes. Your skin looks healthiest in off-white or beige clothing. The veins on your wrist have a greenish tint and gold jewelry looks best on you.

If you have a deep skin tone, you have a dark skin color and likely have dark brown eyes. Your skin looks healthiest in bright colors, like royal purple or green. The veins on your wrist have a purple tint and you are lucky because you can pull off silver and gold jewelry beautifully.

If you have fair skin, the paler you can go with your hair. If you are fair with warm tones, you would look best in strawberry blond, honey blond or a butterscotch color. If you are fair with a cool tone, platinum blonde or champagne blonde with blue-based colors look great on you.

Medium skin is very versatile for colors that look great on you. Medium skin with cool tones look best in ashy tones. Warm skin tones look great with caramel or copper tones. Medium skin looks amazing with warm highlights.

To create depth when you have olive skin, add some highlights in gold or honey. Olive skin looks great in chestnut brown, auburn and cinnamon. Think dark and warm browns for a beautiful combination of skin and hair.

If you have dark skin, you don’t want a hair color that matches your skin tone or your features will disappear. Go for dark, deep brown and rich, warm colors to enhance your gorgeous complexion.

What do you think? Do you know your skin tone and shade? Does your hair color work to make your skin glow or are you looking to change your look?
