What Hair Colour Will Best Suit My Skin Tone?

Illumina-New-Naturals-6-WebDeciding on a new hair colour can be frustrating.

However, no matter your hairstyle, adding a little colour to your tresses could be the change you need to give you a fresh new look for 2014.

Question is – what hair colour will best suit your skin colour and tone? Here are some tips to help find the perfect colour for you.

What type of skin tone you have?

  • If you can see your veins at your wrists, check what colour they are– if they are blue your undertone is cool, if they are green your undertone is warm, and if they are somewhere in between, your undertone is neutral.
  • If you have olive skin you suit darker hair colours. If you are looking for a more natural look, avoid hair colours that are lighter than your skin tone.
  • If you have pink skin, avoid shades of warm reds or golden blondes. Stick to ash tones to neutralize your colouring.
  • Pale skin suits nearly any hair colour (lucky you), though this does not necessarily mean it will be flattering. Use your eye colour to help determine the most flattering colour for you. We will cover eye colour in another blog.
  • Bright, striking hair colours particularly flatter dark skin tones, but softer shades could make you look washed-out.
  • If your skin colour is extremely pale then don’t go for black or very dark hair because it can make you appear paler (unless that’s the effect you’re after!). Dark colours can also be ageing on very pale skin.
  • If you have yellow hues to your skin, be careful with yellow, gold or orange tones. Deep reds and dark browns will often look fantastic on you.

If you are still a little daunted by choosing the right hair colour but would really like to take the plunge, then you can book a Darren Michael Hairdressing Free Colour Bar Consultation. One of our Colour Consultants will go through the options available to you and help you decide on the perfect colour for you.
