Find the Best Hair Colors for Your Skin Tone
Know your skin tone:
Your skin tone does not refer to she shade of your skin, so no matter how pale or tan you get, your skin tone will stay the same. There are mainly three types of skin tones, cool, neutral and warm.
Here are 3 easy ways to identify which category you fall in:
Just look at the visible veins on your wrist (we recommend you to do this in natural lighting). Blue or purple veins fall under the cool category while those with warm skin tone will see green veins. If you can’t tell whether you have blue or green veins, you have a neutral skin tone.
Take a plain white paper and hold it against your bare face, and see how it looks in contrast to the paper. If your skin looks yellowish against the paper, you have a warm skin tone while those with cool skin tone will notice that their skin appears rosy and pink. If your skin appears grayish, you fall under the neutral category.
This method is suitable for those who have skin conditions such as rosacea and acne. Just ask someone to check the skin behind the shell of your ear. If your skin is pink or rosy, you fall under the cool category while those with yellowish undertone have warm skin tone.
Once you know which category you fall in, you're now ready to select the best hair color for your skin tone!
