Determining Your Perfect Shade

1. Know your undertones.

What is an Undertone? The subtle color underneath your skin plays a significant role in determining which best suits your overall hue. There are three types of undertones: cool, warm, and neutral. If you have a cool undertone, you have hints of blue, pink, or purple, giving the skin a rosy or bluish hue. If you have a warm undertone, you have hints of yellow, peach, or golden undertones, which impart a sun-kissed or golden glow to the skin. Lastly, if you have a neutral undertone, you have a balanced blend of cool and warm undertones. 

2. Gather hair pegs that have similar skin tones as you.

It can be helpful to look through images for ideas with similar skin tones for advice if you're looking for inspiration for your hair color. You can better understand how particular shades may appear on you by looking at the hair colors of people with similar skin tones. Gathering hair pegs that complement your skin tone can be a useful starting point for your search for the hair color that best complements and enhances your inherent beauty.

3. Adjust your hair color to match your unique style.

Best Hair Colors According to Your Skin Tone

1. Fair

Natural light brown hair complement fair skin with cool undertones by exuding a softness and natural appearance. It creates an organic and effortless vibe by mimicking the subtle variations and tones frequently found in natural hair colors. The light brown hue gives the complexion warmth without overpowering it, creating a delicate and understated beauty. Warm and neutral undertones in fair skin often show a golden or peachy glow. A touch of warmth and radiance to the complexion from honey-brown or caramel-brown hair enhances this undertone beautifully. The hair's warm tones give off a unified, cohesive appearance that amplifies the skin's warmth and glow.

2. Medium

The warmth and radiance of caramel brown hair with blonde highlights, whether subtle or striking, enhances the appearance of medium skin tones. The warm undertones of the caramel brown shade draw attention to the skin's natural warmth and enhance its radiant appearance. The richness of the caramel hue amplifies the warmth of the skin, giving the appearance of harmony and balance. The contrast between the lighter highlights and the caramel base gives the hair color depth and visual interest, making it stand out against the skin tone.

Taking Care of Colored Tresses

Colored hair requires special aftercare to stay healthy and vibrant. Colored hair is more vulnerable to damage and fading, so using color-safe products that shield against UV rays and environmental pollutants is critical. Because coloring processes can strip the hair of its natural oils, aftercare focuses on replenishing moisture and preventing dryness. Using specialized aftercare products, you can repair and strengthen your hair while minimizing damage and breakage.

1. Opt for gentle formulation
