The question women ask me on a day to day basis. What is the best hair color for my skin tone? In the salon when my clients ask me this I usually start to picture these beautiful colors in my head and re create this on my clients hair.
I will try my best to explain to my readers how to find a hair color that is just perfect for your skin tone. (For me its easier to just do it than to explain, this blogging is new to me.)
First of all you need to determine your skin tone. I usually break it down into just three categories, warm, medium and cool tones. There are many different ways to break down the skin tones this works best for me.
People with a cool skin tones are normally very light or pale skinned, with green or blue eyes. These people need to stick with cooler colors like ash blondes, light brunette with light blonde hi lights will look great on this skin tone. This skin tone can pull off platinum or firey red!
Medium skin tones are in the middle. These people could go either way with their color depending on other factors such as eye color and undertones in the skin . These people may have a mixture of cool and warm features. Anything from Platinum blonde to chocolate caramel brown could work on this lovely skin tone.
People with warm skin tones have more melanin in their skin witch has to do with skin pigment and coloration. Warm skin tones usually tan easily and have more of a golden, yellow tone. Brown/Ebony skin is also in the warm category. These skin tones naturally have darker hair and eyes therefore have to be careful going lighter to blonde. Do not choose cool colors for these skin tones. It will make you look washed out and kinda greenish. Warm chocolate brown, golden caramel hilights, Copper reds, ruby reds and mahogany colors will bring out the best in this beautiful tone of skin.
It is always best to put your hair color into the hands of a professional hair colorist. Other factors also go into determining your perfect color, being your eye color, natural hair color, facial features and bone structure. I mix every client their own personal color using Paul Mitchell professional hair color. Every person is unique and your hair color should be as well.
