Ok, so you want to know what colours look good on you or you want to know what hair colour would suit you? 

Lots of us opt to go darker for the Winter because for some reason those warm golden tones just fit perfectly with that cold winter air but what colour should you really go to based on your skin tone? Let’s find out…

How To Colour Match My Hair

First things first, to find your best colour match you need to determine your skin’s undertones. Most people fall into one of three categories which are, warm, cool, and neutral. Figuring out which category you fall into can seem confusing, but here’s a few tips.

  1. Look for certain colours. Cool-toned skin has olive and blue undertones and warm-toned skin has yellow and gold.
  2. Look at the veins on your wrist. If your veins are blue or purple, you’re most likely cool-toned and If they are green, you are warm
  3. Look at your eyes. If you have a lot of golden colours in your eyes, usually your undertones are warm, If you have many blue and green tones, then you are usually cool.
TOP TIP:
In most cases, Pick a colour tone that’s opposite from your skin’s undertones.
For example, people with warm undertones opt for a cooler colour, and those with cool undertones opt for a warmer colour.
If you have neutral skin, you’re one of the lucky one’s because any tone will look good on you.
