Choosing The Right Hair Color For Your Skin Tone

Choosing The Right Hair Color For Your Skin Tone


Have you ever tried out a hair color and found
it completely didn’t suit you after the stylist was done? “What happened to your hair?!” The reason may lie in your skin. Beyond the basic choices of brown, blonde,
red, or black, the infinite number of sub-colors and shades available can make picking a hair
color from those tiny sample books next to impossible. If you like crazy or nontraditional colors,
the choice becomes even harder. Just like choosing the right clothing colors,
your hair color can drastically affect your looks and make your skin tone look vibrant
or dull. Here are a few key tips to help you learn
which hair colors will look best on you. Blondes have more fun? Shades like platinum, ice, silver, and champagne
look great on those who have cool skin with reddish undertones. The slightly blue cast in these blonde shades
will counteract ruddiness in the skin. Celebrities who have rocked ash blonde correctly
with their skin tone include Gwen Stefani and Taylor Swift. If you decide to go with one of these shades,
make sure you use a purple shampoo and conditioner to keep the color from yellowing. If you have fair, cool skin with blue undertones,
go slightly warmer with your blonde by choosing gold, caramel, amber, honey, or butterscotch
for your shade. A honey or caramel blonde is also a good choice
for those with olive skin and neutral undertones or deep skin, as going too light or ashy with
your blonde can wash out your face. If you have very warm undertones, you want
to avoid warm blonde, as too much yellow can make you look sallow. Also be sure to use toner frequently to avoid
your color going brassy. Brunette strong Shades like chestnut, mocha, dark chocolate,
and dark auburn go great with those who have skin with warm undertones. From fair to deep skin, if you’ve got yellow
undertones, consider using a cool brown hair color to brighten up your complexion. On the other hand, you might want to pick
a warmer shade like golden brown, honey, amber, mahogany, or cinnamon if you have medium skin
with warm undertones. This look is certainly gaining popularity
recently. When Emilia Clarke isn’t wearing her platinum
wig as the Mother of Dragons on Game of Thrones, for example, her go-to hue is warm brown. Seeing red Reddish shades like auburn, burgundy, and
true red will look great on those with fair cool skin with reddish undertones. The bluish red cast of your hair will make
your skin pop instead of looking flushed or ruddy. If you have deep skin, opt for a cool auburn
over warm red, because warmer red tones will make your skin look greenish or sickly. Meanwhile, if you have more neutral or bluish
undertones in fair skin, then warm red is the right choice for you. Pick your favorite from strawberry blonde,
amber, copper, or rust shades and you’ll feel like a princess in no time. Just be sure to get shampoo for color-treated
hair and avoid washing frequently to keep your color strong as long as possible between
touch-ups. Paint it black Hair colors like espresso, licorice, blue-black
or true black will look great on those with warm undertones. If you’re fair or olive skinned, the contrast
will take your yellowish undertones and give you an almost porcelain-doll look to your
skin. If you have deep skin, you can wear cool black
shades regardless of your undertone. If you crave warm black shades like dark mocha,
cocoa, or brown-black, however, then make sure you have cool undertones to your fair
or medium skin. If you have deep skin, then you can also use
a mocha or cocoa shade to warm things up, no matter what undertone you have. Wildin’ out Do you want to go a little crazy with your
next hair color? While the sky is pretty much the limit and
any color of the rainbow can look great if done correctly, there are a few pointers you
should keep in mind to avoid some unexpected surprises. Warmer colors like pinks, oranges, and yellows
will look best with cool-toned skin. Cool colors like blue and purple will be particularly
flattering if you have warm yellow undertones in your skin. If you have deep skin, opt for darker, more
saturated colors over pastels. And above all, remember that nontraditional
colors will fade quickly because of the lifting process used before color is applied. Make sure you use specialized products to
extend the life of your crazy shade, and most important of all, have fun styling it up! Thanks for watching! Click The List icon to subscribe to our YouTube
