Skin Tones & Hair Tones

Now that we are heading into fall and winter we often like to go dark, right? Dark in the fall, and blonde in the summer! Well this fun trend unfortunately cannot work for all of us, myself being one of them! But don’t worry! There are other solutions! We are going to be talking skin tones here! What skin tones go with what color of hair tones! So hang on! I myself used to go with this trend and I had so much fun with doing it! So believe me, you can do it if you’d like, we’re just going to be talking what compliments you better than others! We all would love to know the PERFECT hair color for ourselves without having to fry our hair off! Am I right?! I know I would!

First and most important when choosing the perfect hair color for you is to determine whether you fall into the WARM or COOL category. Why is this so important? Think of it this way… Have you ever bought the wrong shade of makeup foundation. All of a sudden your skin looks orange. Or too ashy. You must have chosen a color that clashes with your natural skin tone. Just like when picking a foundation shade, you need to look at your skin tone to pick the right hair color that will compliment your tone and not clash with it.

How to determine your tones: if you are two or more of these, you are considered warm

If your Eyes are:
Golden brown

Green, green blue or turquoise

Hazel with gold or brown flecks

Natural Hair Color:

Deep brown with gold or red highlights

Red

Strawberry blonde

Gray with a yellow cast

Natural golden blonde

Skin Tone:
Brown with pink undertone

Brown with golden undertone

Pale with peach or gold undertones

Freckled

Ruddy

**Another good trick is to look at your clothing. Warms look better in Earth Toned clothing: yellows, oranges, browns, yellowish greens and orange-based reds.

You’ll find dark, warm browns, chestnuts, rich golden browns and auburn, warm gold and red highlights, and golden blond shades look best on you. Any color that has red-orange or gold base will look great on you. Highlighting is a great way to add warm tones to your hair. Highlight with golden blondes,copper streaks, golden brown shades. Try and avoid blue, violet, beige, and ash that will make you appear as “washed-out”
How to determine your tones: if you are two or more of these, you are considered cool
If your eyes are:
Deep brown or black-brown

Gray blue or dark blue

Hazel with white, gray or blue flecks

Natural Hair Color:

Blue black

Deepest coffee brown

Medium ash brown

Medium golden brown

Dishwater blonde

Skin Tone:

Very dark brown

True olive (most Asians and Latinos)

Medium with no color in cheeks

Medium with faint pink cheeks

Medium with golden undertones

Pale with no color in cheeks

Pale with pink undertones

**Another good trick is to look at your clothing. Cools look better in Jewel Toned clothing: blues, greens, pinks, purples, blue-greens, magentas, and blue-based reds.

The best hair color shades for a cool toned person are shinny raven-wing blacks, cool ash browns, cool blondes in shades ranging from mink to platinum and icy white. Highlights should be wheat, honey, taupe or ash shades. Stick to neutral, ash and beige bases when choosing a hair color. You’re also fortunate enough to be able to wear many exciting “unnatural” hair colors like lipstick reds, burgundies, and orchids, purples. Naturally cool people should avoid gold, yellow, red and bronze tones in hair color. These warm tones have a tendency to make you look sallow and drawn.
Now, the solution to not fry your hair transitioning into seasons, LOWLIGHTS/HIGHLIGHTS! They are the perfect hint and touch to transitioning into different seasons, and it won’t completely fry your hair! Just to add the extra hint of what you need!! For blondes going into fall, as you sometimes want to change it up and add a little bit to your hair, make sure the tone of the lowlight will be right for you and your skin tone! Rather than completely coloring your entire head of hair! Brunettes, going into summer, the perfect highlight can have a hue of gold for the warmth or make a contrast between your hair color and be more of a pale blonde! Just make sure it works for your skin tone! Here are some pictures of me with several different hair colors that I have felt that work for my skin tone as I stick to the category that I fit under {warm} I hope this has helped you! Happy hair coloring! :)
