At some point in her life, every woman wants a change. Nothing is more refreshing and inspiring than a new hairstyle. A new hair color makes you feel different, refreshed and relaxed.

SSPDaily offers you an adaptation of The Right Hairstyles material with effective tips on how to choose the right hair color for yourself.

How to find your hair color

First, you need to find out which category of shades your skin belongs to - warm, cold or neutral. Even the lightest skin can have different shades. There are several methods for determining them, and it is recommended to combine them all for the best results.

1. How you tan

If your skin turns red after sun exposure and is prone to sunburn, you have a cool undertone. If you tan easily, your skin tone is warm or neutral. Since this does not apply to women with very deep complexions, it is recommended to use a combination of all methods.

2. The color of your veins

Look at the veins on your wrist in daylight: if they look green, it means you have a warm skin tone; if the veins are blue or purple, your skin tone is cool. Those who can't tell if their veins are blue or green have a neutral skin tone.

3. Your skin compared to something neutral

Put on a white T-shirt or simply put a piece of paper to your face and look in a mirror in a well-lit room (daylight is best). If your face looks yellowish, then warm tones predominate; if it looks pinkish, then you probably have cold shades. None of the above? Your skin tone is probably neutral.

What hair colors work best with your skin tone

The general rule of thumb is that a cool skin tone looks best with a cool hair color, and a warm skin tone looks best with a warm hair color. Thus, matching your hair color to your skin tone emphasizes your complexion and brings out your features.

However, sometimes choosing the opposite tone can create a contrast. For example, very fair, cool freckled skin looks fantastic with warm coppery hair. Let's compare different ways to find the most suitable hair color for your skin tone.

Fair skin with warm shades

Fair-skinned girls are often naturally blonde, and if this description applies to you, it is recommended to pay attention to honey and golden blonde hair colors that will suit your warm skin. Don't dye your hair more than half a shade darker - it will make you look washed out.

Those who have naturally dark hair and fair skin with warm shades can choose between cool brown and warm brown hair colors. Warm brown shades, such as milk chocolate, caramel, or golden brown, will complement the warm tones of your skin and emphasize brown and green eyes.

A cold ash brown color will create a contrast with a warm skin tone and emphasize blue or gray eyes. Cold tones usually fade faster, so you should use a silver shampoo to preserve the shade.

Light skin with neutral shades

Fair skin with neutral shades looks equally good with warm and cool hair colors. However, if you want to look more youthful, go for warmer shades. In general, warmer and lighter hair tones give an instant anti-aging effect (think J.Lo's caramel curls or Jennifer Aniston's eternal golden highlights).

Fair skin with cold shades

You should be especially careful when choosing a hair color for pale skin. You can't go wrong with ashy and icy hair colors that will complement a porcelain skin tone. Also, cold shades of red and deep purple will be appropriate for this complexion.

Although coppery and yellowish shades can make your skin look dull, it doesn't mean you can't wear warm hair color. Strawberry blonde and copper can create a beautiful contrast and enhance your complexion. However, it is recommended that you ask your colorist to apply a sample shade to your face to help you make a decision.

"Medium" skin with warm shades

Honey brown with caramel highlights is the best choice for warm, medium skin tones. This hair color will set off your tan and make your skin look radiant and healthy.

"Medium" skin with neutral shades

Undoubtedly, girls with a neutral skin tone will suit any hair color, including bright shades such as pink, blue, green, yellow or even rainbow. The only thing you need to consider before experimenting is the quality and condition of your hair.

"Medium" skin with cold shades

Cool shades best emphasize this complexion: everything from dirty blonde to rich chocolate will suit you. Cool skin tones often tend to be visibly red. If you're familiar with this problem, it's best to avoid true red and purple hair shades.

Dark skin with warm shades

There are many hair colors that suit dark skin. However, if you want to emphasize a warm skin tone, choose rich, warm hair shades. Try golden balayage or ombre, keeping the roots deeper and more natural - this hair color is especially suitable for olive skin tones.

Dark skin with a neutral shade

If you have dark skin with a neutral tone, both cool and warm colors will look good on you. Try experimenting with ash and golden colors, but ideally, stay within the same depth level as your natural hair.

Dark skin with cool shades

Dark skin color can also have noticeable cold shades. The right shade of hair for this complexion is close to the owner's natural color: cold dark brown.

We hope that this article helped you understand what shade your skin is, what will suit it, and how to find your right color.
