Which Hair Colors Look Good on Me?

hair colors come in all kinds, and you must understand which ones will suit you best. One effective way of doing so is assessing your skin tone and coloring to narrow down the choices.

Dark Blonde

Dark blonde hair colors work for any season and complexion, from spring through winter. Warmer shades work best during spring and summer,, while neutral or cool tones work beautifully in fall/winter.

Consider getting a rooted dark blonde shade from your stylist for an easy, maintenance look. According to colorist Matt Rez, who has colored Ashley Benson, Lili Reinhart, and Eiza Gonzalez, among many other stars, this technique gradually transitions your natural hue into your desired shade using a blending method.

An attractive choice for those with darker locks is sandy blonde; this hair color shade consists of light brown and golden blonde hues combined with earthy tones for an earthy and warm appearance that flatters most face shapes and skin tones.

Light Blonde

Light blonde is an ideal shade to compliment medium skin tones – think Nene Leakes, Amanda Seyfried, and Eva Marcille for inspiration. It combines warm honey and golden techniques that look natural.

Pink hair may be trendy right now, but if your complexion features cool undertones, opt for pale peach instead. It looks stunning as an all-over color without dimension highlights or applied using the balayage technique like Sarah Lahbati demonstrated here.

Dove celebrity hairstylist Cynthia Alvarez suggests that those with cooler complexions should opt for shades like ashy, wheat, beige, and sand because these lack warmth. See Zoe Kravitz’s flawless ponytail look as proof. Additionally, Teyana Taylor showcases this look by rocking an icy blonde shade; another option could be an icy blonde shade, which gives off an “icy queen” aesthetic. Look to Teyana for inspiration, or ask your stylist to create a shadow root effect using this hue.

Dark Brown

Dark brown hair looks gorgeous when done correctly, giving it an air of mystery and complementing various complexions from fair to olive to brown skin tones. Additionally, it makes an eye-catching statement and complements green or gray eyes perfectly; highlights can help accentuate natural locks, or opt for soft brunette balayage techniques for an enhanced effect.

Park So-dam effortlessly pulls off this gorgeous hair color choice with ease. Her dark red strands are enhanced by an eye-catching toasted brown shade that pairs perfectly with her warm skin tone and deep eyes.

When selecting a dark brown shade, always ask your stylist for one with cool undertones to prevent brassy effects and keep your strands healthy-looking and shiny. This will prevent brassiness from taking hold and creating unwelcome brassy shades in your locks.

Dark brown hair can also benefit from dyed a rich chocolate brown with subtle red tones, offering another stylish option that works beautifully across different skin tones. This warm hue has a dark brown base paired with subtle wine-red highlights that complement most skin tones beautifully. Your locks will feel silky-smooth, so include plenty of conditioning treatments and leave-in oils like Paul Mitchel Awapuhi Treatment Styling Oil into your routine for best results.

Light Brown

Light brown is easy to maintain, working beautifully in all lighting. It pairs well with warm and cool skin tones alike and is an excellent option for brunettes looking to lighten their locks without risking overbleaching them too much.

Ask your colorist to add subtle honey and caramel highlights for an ombre effect that gives your locks a stunning golden-brown hue – it makes them shine! This will produce a striking light golden brown shade!

Tyra Banks flaunts light brown highlights on her long locks for an eye-catching casual-chic look that complements her hazel eyes perfectly. Wavy strands add texture to this casual chic style.
