How To Deal With An Oily Scalp And Dry Ends
Choosing the best hair color for your skin tone and eye color will create a harmonious look and enhance your overall appearance. Here are some tips to help you determine what shades will help you achieve your best look.
Determine Your Skin Undertone
Cool Undertones: If your skin has hints of pink, blue, or purple, you have cooler undertones. Usually the veins on the inside of your arms will look more blue. You probably prefer silver jewelry rather than gold. People with cool undertones typically have fair or pale skin that burns easily in the sun.
Warm Undertones: If your skin has warm undertones, it will have hints of peach, yellow, or gold. You most likely look better in gold jewelry and have veins that lean toward green. People with warm undertones often have olive, tan, or deep skin that tans more easily.
Neutral undertones: You may be somewhere in between some of these clues This gives you some options, depending on some of the other factors coming up.
Look At Your Eye Color
Green Eyes: Hair colors with warm undertones like golden blonde, auburn, and warm brown shades can complement green eyes and make them stand out.
Brown Eyes: Brown eyes are versatile and can be complemented by various hair colors. Warm shades like honey blonde, caramel, or rich brown can bring out the warmth in brown eyes, while cool shades like espresso or dark ash brown can create contrast and depth.
Consider Relatively Light Or Dark Your Skin Is
Lighter skin colors favor different shades and depths of hair color than darker shades. In order to maintain balance, darker skin needs more depth or intensity than its lighter counterparts.
Consult a Friend(Or A Professional)
If you’re uncertain about any of these variables, ask a friend to help out. It’s hard to look at yourself objectively. They can help you assess your skin tone, eye color easier than you can alone.
Choose Complementary Colors
For Cool Undertones and Fair Skin: If you have very fair skin that tends toward cool undertones, light ashy hair colors work best. This includes shades like platinum blonde, ashy blonde, cool brown, and shades with hints of blue, pink, or violet. Avoid extremely white or extremely dark colors. If your looking for lots of contrast against your porcelain skin, try a rich, true red or a ashy brunette.
For Cool Undertones and Dark Skin:
Cool toned darker skin can be complimented by bolder colors like like smokey brunettes, deep red violet tones, or, if achievable on your hair, platinum or ash blonde. Avoid golden brown, tobacco shades and coppery reds. They won’t be flattering against cooler skin.
Remember To Consider your Eye Color:
Blue or green eyes will be complimented by the lighter shades mentioned, while brown works better with the deeper color choices.
For Warm Undertones and Fair Skin:
Warm browns, golden blondes and copper reds are a good direction to go. The right bright red or mahogany can be excellent choices as well. Honey and caramel tones are especially pretty with brown eyes, and copper tones look stunning with green eyes.
For Warm Undertones and Dark Skin:
Look at bolder, more intense versions of the above shades. If you want to incorporate some lighter colors, consider a darker base color with lighter balayage highlights in a complimentary tone. Balayage tends to go toward warm tones on darker hair, and keeping more depth against the skin lets you have the freedom add some light against the background without looking washed out.
For Warm Undertones and Skin That Falls Somewhere In Between:
Medium skin tones look fantastic with dimensional color. It allows you to add the best of the lighter and darker color choices to your look. Remember to avoid ashy shades, it tends to bring out a yellowy tone to the skin and can be quite aging.
For Neutral skin tones:
You get to enjoy the best of both worlds. Generally going to the warn side is slightly better, but with the right shade you can go either way. I suggest in this situation to play to the eye color. Hair color that contrasts the eye color are the most striking. Use the examples I mentioned earlier as a guide. You can also mix and match dimensional colors quite freely, let your creativity run free. Remember that individual factors like hair texture and personal preferences also play a role. Avoid shades that are overly aggressive for your hair condition and texture. Ask for professional advice, your colorist can advise you as to what range of colors is achievable for your hair. These guidelines can be helpful, but they are not strict rules. In the end, the best hair color is one that makes you feel great wearing it.
