Who said that colouring hair has anything to do with your skin tone??? Well, I am saying this because lot of experts have quoted this in past. When it comes to fashion, always listen to expert advice to attain the maximum benefits and positive effects. If you don’t want to spend room full of money just to get your hair painted in some lavish colour, find out the best ways and tricks to get it done at home without making it a too hard job. Ladies, you can do it. But first thing comes first. It’s time to know about your skin colour and undertones to indentify the shade which is perfect for your hair and skin as well. Here is the complete guide...

Trust me; just like you I was always in the mindset that we have two basic skin tones – fair and not fair (I mean wheatish, brown, dark or deep). But since the time I have joined hands with fashion, the hazy picture has got lot of clearance and now I can talk about ton of different human body tones. If I ask you that do you have any idea about cool and warm skin tones, would you reply honestly??? I know lot of you do and some of you have exactly no idea what I am talking about. Here are the things which you need to know first to pick the best hair colour for your individual self and make it a statement. The major reason behind the relationship between skin tone and hair colour is that both can either complement each other if done rightly or sabotage at the same time if goes wrong. Moreover, wearing a right hair colour can flare your overall personality and style statement in a blink and bring you under the league of fashionistas of the town. Who wants to paint the town red now??? Or brown, caramel, beige or any hue existing in the planet?!

Warm Skin Tones

In very clear and subtle language, there are two simple ways to find out that whether your skin has warm undertones or cool undertones. Wash off all the makeup from your face which might interfere in your natural colour and then do the colour test. If your skin looks better with blue coloured cloth, then you have cool toned skin. And if looks better against red, you are warm-toned person. Make sure that you do the test in well-lit room to ensure the right outcomes. We will discuss the second test later. First find out the right hair colour for skin tone falling in warm undertones category.

There you go!

Fair Skin – Copper red, rust


If you have bright fair skin with warm undertones, then you come under the category of Hollywood stars like Emma Stone and Emma Watson. And there are plenty of colours to bring out the warmth in you and put it in the right space. According to experts, shades like copper red, golden copper, rust, strawberry, caramel and golden blonde are the best options for girls in this category. Women with very fair skin and warm undertones should avoid shades from black or blue colour palette. They would look too harsh and unnatural with their skin tone and body colour.
