For most of us, it is essential to stick to certain hair colors in order to look our very best. The perfect hair color will not only complement your skin tone and allow your best facial features pop, and it can also help you look younger. However if you get it wrong, you could end up looking washed out, tired, and very unnatural.

When you alter your hair color, it lifts the outer color and reveals the natural underlying pigments, or highlights, in the hair. This concept helps when thinking about the colors you should stick to because what comes out naturally is the best indication of what suits you best, just think about the colors that the sun turns your hair during mid-summer months. If you are looking to stay with a natural look try and stick to these natural tones and you won’t go wrong.

Your skin tone also contains these underlying pigments much like your hair. So, if you were born with black or brown hair, it is likely that you will have warmer and earthy undertones in your skin like yellow, brown, gold. If you were born with blonde hair, you most likely have cooler skin undertones like blue, green, pink.
