How To Dye your Hair According to your Skin Tone

Quince Madrina

There’s nothing worse than dyeing your hair a color you thought would look good only to have it look horrible next to your skin tone.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It actually happens to everyone at some point in their life if they choose to experiment with different hair colors. It really does all come down to choosing the right hair dye color in order to compliment your skin tone, not clash with it.

First, determine what skin tone you have and then use this quick little guide to help you select the right shade to bring out the best of your beauty.


Girls with fair skin generally look best with hair that is blonde or a light brunette color. Fair skin girls also look good with bright orange toned red hair, which doesn’t really look good with any other skin tone. For example, actress Madelaine Petsch knows how to rock her red hair.

Those with cool toned skin generally look best with a warm golden blonde, honey almond brown or chocolate brunette color. Jessica Biel’s hair is a perfect example of the best color for cool toned girls.


Warm toned skin looks exceptional when paired with ash brown, beige, auburn or champagne blonde hair colors. Jennifer Aniston’s sandy colored hair is a great example of the perfect color for girls with a warm skin tone.


If your skin is olive toned like Kim Kardashian’s, you may want to try a strong dark brunette to bring out your best features.

Dark black hair with undertones of blue, purple or red look excellent on girls with dark skin. Even though, our girl Rihanna is known to pull off any look she desires, dark hair has always been her all time color choice.
