The Best Hair Color for Your Eye Color

Many women get tired of their natural hair color. This is either because something happened in their lives and they want some change beginning with their hairstyle, or just because they are tired of their usual hairstyle and want to see how they will look with another hair color. However, sometimes we just do not know what hair color will look good on us.

Some women decide they want a certain color, but when they see the end result they do not like it because it just does not suit them. The problem is that they have to use chemicals on their hair so the color can be removed, or they have to wait for their hair to grow, which will take months.

So, if you do not want to face any such problems, there is a way you can find out what hair color will suit you just by considering your eye color. It is not only the eye color that you have to consider, but also your skin tone. Here is some little test you should try to determine which hair color will suit you the most.

Find out your skin undertone

Your skin undertone can also help you a lot in determining the best hair color for you. Here is how to find it. Look at your veins on your wrists. What color do they have? If it is more greenish one, then you have a warm undertone, and if it is more bluish, then you have a cool undertone.

If you still have any doubts, you may try the other test. Dress in white, but this means you have to be from head to toe in white. Then stand in front of a mirror in daylight, no unnatural light. If your face seems to have a goldish color, then it means you have warm undertone, and if it is more reddish, like having rosy cheekbone, then it means you have cool undertone.

After this is settled, it is time to move on to the combinations of eye color and skin undertone.
