The colors in the hair can be chosen based on the tone of the skin, with this we ensure a more natural look, that when using the dyes for the hair do not generate a striking or unnatural appearance.

How to choose the best hair colors based on skin tone

The tone of our skin can indicate the color in the hair that will look best. We can also get it to highlight the color of the eyes through a contrast with the skin and hair tone. The most used hair dyes do not always have to be the most convenient, so we will teach you which to choose if you have a brown, pink or white skin, and also with which hairstyles and haircuts can look better according to your skin type.

How to identify your skin tone

To be able to choose the right hair colors, it is necessary first that we focus on correctly identifying the skin tone we have, sometimes the passage of time or the sun, along with health problems, can cause our skin to suffer some change of hue, however the skin tone of our forearm, its inner part, is what will give us the natural tone we have.

We can create contrasts by putting our arm, or even our face, with colored sheets, and go testing which one goes better, usually the warm tones are better with the blond and the reddish, while the cooler tones, are better with colors such as gray, blue, green or white.

Tips to choose the best hair color

Guided by what the expert stylist of L’Oreal Paris, Christophe Robin, explains to us, to carry out a correct choice of the color of our hair, we must be guided by the color that our hair naturally has, the color of our eyes and the tone of the skin. Before deciding what color to paint your hair, take these tips into account to make sure you choose the best color based on the skin tone you wear, even if it looks tanned.

Light skin with cold tone

In very white and pink skins, such as cold tone, to get a better contrast, you can opt for darker hair colors, such as brown, chocolate, black dyes with blue tones, or achieve a dark redhead effect, light tones such as platinum blonde can also do very well, but darker colors make better contrast, as we already mentioned.
