How to Choose the Right Hair Colour for Your Skin Tone


Deciding on hairdressing services and choosing the perfect colour for your skin tone can be a tough decision. As if deciding between blonde, brunette, black, red, or a more unconventional colour isn’t hard enough. You then need to consider the different shades and hues within those colours, and which ones will suit your complexion more.

When it comes to choosing the right hair colour, you need to understand two things: your skin colour and undertones. Then you can decide which colours will suit this.

How to Determine Your Skin Tone and Undertones

There a few easy ways to determine whether you have a warm, cool, or neutral complexion.

  1. Take a look at the colour of the veins on your wrist
  2. Identify whether you tan easily
  3. Determine whether you suit gold or silver jewellery

Warm Skin

If you suit gold jewellery, have green veins, and tan very easily, you most likely have a warm skin tone.

Cool Skin

Cool skin tends to have blue veins and doesn’t tan very easily, is at all. You’ll also find that silver jewellery looks best on you.

Neutral Skin

People with neutral skin suit both gold and silver, they don’t usually have a problem tanning, and usually have both green and blue veins.

Finding Your Hair Colour Match

Now that you know your skins undertones, it’s time to choose a colour that will compliment these features!

A pro hair stylists tip is to choose a hair colour that is the opposite of your undertones.

So, if you have a warm undertone, choose a cool hair colour, and if you have a cool undertone choose a warm hair colour. For those with neutral complexions, you’re lucky enough to be able to choose both warm and cool hair colours.
