Skin Tone and Hair Color: What You Need to Know

Picking the right hair color for your skin tone is a tricky business. Not everyone can pull off those platinum blonde locks. Unless you are rocking those vibrant rainbow colors (which you should try at least once), having colored hair should look as if it came naturally. 

The rule of thumb is typically to always have the shade of your hair be about two shades darker or lighter than your skin undertones. Do you have warm, cool, or neutral undertones? Once you determine your skin undertone, all will fall into place. Here is a little secret - take a look at the veins on your wrist. If they are blue or purple, you have a cool undertone - if green, you have a warm undertone - and if neither, you are neutral.

Also pay attention to how your skin reacts in the sun. Do you burn easily and then go right back to pale? You most likely have a cool undertone. Do you tan easily? You most likely have a warm undertone.
