Hair Colors for Your Skin Tone and How To Choose Them

In this post I will teach you all the techniques and tips for choosing and applying the hair colors for your own skin tone.

Skin types.


Basically, there are two skin types in general: warm and cool. Either your skin tone is cool, or it is warm. Lots of women don't understand that it is essential for them to understand their skin tone category. If you have a golden or yellow skin undertone, you can be categorized as a warm type. This means that warm hair colors will look much better on you then the cool ones. Of course, this applies to accessories, makeup and everything that you put on.

The basics of choosing the hair colors for your skin tone.


Now that you know how important skin tones are, let's apply this to our problem. On sunlight, spread your naked arm and observe the color of your veins. If the color of your veins is green, your skin undertone is warm. If the color of your veins is blue, you are a cool skin type person. You don't have to do this on sunlight, but natural light is the best for this experiment.

Conclusion and tips.


Understanding the skin tone based on the undertones is essential when dyeing your hair and choosing the hair colors for your skin tone. If you have a warm skin tone, any cool color will not look good on you. In fact, that hair color will drain your skin tone down. The same thing applies vice versa. If your skin is cool, you should avoid warm colors (such as yellow and orange) like a plague.
