From Desancho Estilistas , our color specialist hairdresser in Valencia , we tell you in this post which is the best hair color for you based on 3 aspects:

  1. Your skin tone.
  2. The color of your eyes.
  3. Your style.

Here we go!

What hair color suits me according to my skin tone

If you have decided to change the color of your hair , the first thing you have to do is choose a hair color that matches the tone of your skin, regardless of the fashionable hair color .

First of all, the most important thing is to identify your skin tone: dark, medium, or white.

To know how to recognize your skin tone, you only need a mirror and two pieces of plain cloth, one orange and the other hot pink. This technique known as ” Cromoestética ” allows you to know your skin type easily. In front of the mirror, place the orange piece of cloth in front of you and then the pink one separately and observe the result on your skin: do you feel that one of the two colors enhances your skin more than the other? If your skin looks better with pink, your skin tone is cool. If, on the other hand, oranges are your thing, it is a warm type.

After identifying your skin color, you can choose some of the hair colors that we recommend in this section of the post.

Hair color for dark skin

If you have dark skin, brown colors will bring a lot of light to your face. Ideally, you should try to keep your natural hair color, although highlights in red or honey tones can look great on you.

Hair color for medium skin (sallow)

Do you have sallow skin? It is that type of beige or yellow skin and it tends to be dim. For this reason, hair tones that add shine to the face are recommended. Some of the most prominent are the mahogany tones, the balayage highlights or the blonde gradients, very common for actress Jessica Alba .

Hair color for fair skin

Women with fair skin can generally wear various types of hair color, as long as they avoid blacks and very dark browns. Ideally , you should select hair colors that are warm but create contrast with the skin, for example a champagne or a coppery. We show you a photograph of the actress Emma Stone… her white skin looks perfect with her copper hair.

However, this is not all! When you decide to make a change of look that affects the color of your hair, do not look only at your skin tone, there are other factors that you should also take into account, as we have mentioned before, these factors are: the color of the eyes and your personal style , because they also ‘play’ a very important role. Read on and find out!

What hair color suits me according to the color of my eyes

Currently there are many women who choose their [ss_kw]hair color according to the color of their eyes[/ss_kw] . It is a very successful way to select hair color, because the color you select will help you more or less highlight that important part of the face: the eyes.

Hair color for green eyes

For green eyes, the hair colors that we like the most are light brown and even the ashiest blondes . It is a way to unify the warm tones of your face, softening and sweetening your image a lot. Former Miss Spain Helen Lindes is wearing it. How about?

Hair color for blue eyes

For blue eyes we like many colors, it all depends on the image you want to project. For example: if you are looking for a sweet look it is recommended that you opt for dark blondes, on the contrary, if you are looking for a more impressive look , the more intense blacks will help you highlight your face and especially your blue eyes.

Hair color for brown eyes

For brown or honey-colored eyes we love chestnut and chocolate brown tones . These tones will unify your face a lot so you can provide a little contrast with highlights in a slightly lighter tone. The journalist Lara Álvarez has managed to unify the color of her eyes with the color of her hair and we love the result.

Hair color for black eyes

Without a doubt, for darker eyes, we opted for darker hair colors , both black and dark browns, the best way to achieve a Lady Rocker look.

The Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is one of the celebrities who has very dark eyes and, perhaps that is why she always opts for dark hair colors. We show it to you in the image below!

The style you have is also a factor to take into account when selecting your hair color. Depending on your style: romantic, rocker, natural, etc., it is normal to select some shades or others. For example, darker tones are better suited to rocker styles while light tones are better suited to more romantic styles.

Having said all this, from Desancho Estilistas we do not want you to forget how important the features of your face are to choose one color or another. If you want to outline your features, darker hair colors are the best option. On the other hand, if what you want is to provide more warmth and that the features of the face highlight less the light colors are a good idea. Remember that when there is more contrast between the color of your skin and that of your hair, your features will always stand out much more.

Tips from our stylists to get the hair color right

  • If you want a natural tone, choose between golden, ash or brown tones that are similar to the color of the root of your hair and illuminate them with reflections a couple of shades lighter. Always look for the natural effect
  • Look for the harmony between eyebrows and hair color. If you go over it with mahogany or platinum blonde, your brows will give you away. Avoid too accentuated contrasts that give you an artificial look!
  • Use natural color without ammonia. Ammonia and other chemicals damage and spoil hair. Its appearance becomes rough and brittle.

Remember that choosing the wrong shade can take years on you, harden your features or make your skin appear dull and lifeless. That is why it is essential that when choosing coloring, you value these aspects and not other factors such as fashions, what suits your friend or what your favorite celebrity wears. As with makeup, hairstyles and clothing, what looks good for some may not be suitable for others!

Before deciding on one or the other color, you should advise yourself well so as not to make mistakes. Our hairdresser stylists are specialists in beauty and hair care. They know hair cycles well and know that professional coloring also hydrates and protects . That is why they can offer you the advice you need to find the color that best suits you. When choosing, you must assess certain conditions such as your eye color, skin type and even more or less marked features. Only in this way will you achieve the result you are looking for: soften the features, offer a youthful and attractive image and above all, look good!
