After trying many hair color choices you may notice that you still missing something, something that would make you feel special and will blend with what you are and what you want. If you notice that your skin tone is quite pale and some areas of your face is a bit darker (under eyes) this could be connected to your hair color choice.
On the other hand, there are hair colors that will refresh your face without any special beauty treatments and make-up, giving it the ability to glow with youth and health.

1. Don’t Be Overwhelmed
There are simple yet effective steps that help you to pick a perfect hair color that will fit you like a glove.
If you ask a hairstylist about picking the right color you’ll hear about 2 main factors: skin tone and eye pigmentation, which is absolutely true. However, the other thing that must be taken into consideration and almost always neglected is your personality!
2. Your Skin Tone
We are going to make it very simple for you to understand.
There are several methods in evaluating a skin type. We will use classic approach with indicator pairs: light/dark, warm/cold. Probably you’ll have no problem figuring out whether your skin tone is light or dark, but is it warm or cold? Warm-type skin contains a golden pigment that gives it a touch of peach, ivory, champagne, bronze, gold. Birth marks are reddish-brown. Cold-type is distinguished by bluish network of blood vessels shining through the skin.
3. How To Identify Your Skin Type
One way to find out about your type is to look at your face next to different colors.
Exploration should be made in front of a large mirror in a light room with walls and furniture of light neutral colors (ideally – white room). Remove every bright object, otherwise they will distract you. Lighting should be neutral, direct sunlight or electric light is not allowed.
Give your eyes some rest, do not look at your phone, computer monitor or TV for a few minutes. Remove all jewelry and make up. Wear neutral colors with bare shoulders or simply undress from the waist up.
Take red, orange, yellow (warm colors) items of fabric/garment or colored paper and also green, blue and light purple. In any order bring each piece (one at a time) close to your face and look in the mirror. When you look better? When your skin looks more radiant? And when you look dull and pale?
Your tone is warm when you look good with red, orange or yellow and a cold when you look better with blue, green or light purple.
4. Hair Colors For Every Skin Type
So if a tone of your skin is light and warm, your eyes are light (blue or green) ideally your hair color should be light warm reddish tones. This could be anything from light, medium or golden brown, golden or honey blonde to golden red. Just keep it warm, avoid ashy tones and dark colors.
If your skin tone is light and cold and eyes are light (blue, green, gray-green) then choose ashy tone colors for your hair from platinum blond to dark brown with a touch of highlights if needed. Try to avoid very dark and black, reddish colors, golden blonde and other warm tones because they will definitely age you.
If a tone of your skin is dark and warm, your eyes are light or medium dark (green, hazel, light brown) you will look best with red, golden red, golden brown and chestnut tones. Bypass all ashy and cold colors.
If your skin type is dark and cold, eyes are dark (black, dark brown or intensely blue) you should stick to black, black with blue hue, dark brown color. Avoid warm red tones and light colors, otherwise it will look unnatural.
Hair color influences overall perception of your appearance. That’s why you should always take into consideration your personality before choosing any hair color.
Women with powerful strong individuality may lighten up their hair to look more gentle, delicate and tender.
To the contrast if your nature is shy and soft you may want to add some spice with darker more strong colors or low lights.
