The color of your extensions can make or break your whole look, just one shade lighter or darker can make you look absolutely ridiculous or bomb AF. When it comes to choosing the right hair color, your skin tone is a major factor. Since your hair is right next to your face, picking the right shade is really important, as it can either make your skin glow or make it look somber. So, first you need to identify your skin undertone and then figure out which hair colour best suits your skin tone.
Identifying your skin undertone
Most people fall into one of three categories of skin tone: warm, cool, and neutral. Do a wrist test to see what your complexion undertone is. Look at your wrists or the top of your hands, if you see blue or purple veins your skin tone is cool. If you have light to dark greenish veins than your skin tone is warm, and if you see a mixture than you have a neutral skin tone.
If you are still not convinced, you can also use jewelry as a guide. Gold jewelry tends to look better on warm skin tones and silver jewelry looks better on cool skin tones, of course, people with neutral skin tones look good with either gold or silver.
If all else fails, match yourself to a celebrity with similar features as yours and be a copy cat. I mean, it worked for me that one time I thought I looked like Beyonce lols
Choosing the right hair color for your skin tone
Now that you know your skin undertone, you want to choose a hair color that will complement your skin tone and bring out your best features. Ideally, you should choose a hair color tone that is the opposite of your skin undertone, because if you choose a hair color that matches your skin undertone, it will blend in with your skin and your features will disappear.
The ideal hair color for warm undertones is cool, ashy or reddish tones such as honey or strawberry blonde, cool beige or rich browns. Cooler skin tones should go for golden blondes, warm reds, dark browns or jet black. If you have neutral skin, you are a lucky fish, you can choose from a larger variety of hair colors so go with whatever looks good on you.
Remember, the hair color you chose should complement your skin tone, rather than blend in with it. So there you have it, hope you enjoyed this read, let me know in the comment section below what hair color you find works best for you and why.
