When it comes to hair color, let’s face it, we all want to experiment! Whether you’re tired of the mousey brown hair you’ve had your entire life or you’ve always felt like more of a redhead than a blonde, playing around with hair colors and finding the best shade for you can be a ton of fun. Even if you only go for semi-permanent hair color, why not change things up for a bit?
To help you find the best hair color for you (besides the one you were born with), we’ve put together a hair color chart with different hair colors, including which skin tones or eye colors they work best for. Below is your complete guide to hair color — now go find your best look!
- Light Ash Blonde: The palest of blondes that has hints of ash, or a whitish tint with pale green and blue undertones, and suits ladies with pale skin tones well. If you’ve got rosy undertones to your skin, ash will be even better, as the green and blue undertones in your ash hair will neutralize the rosy undertones in your skin. To keep light ash blonde hair from yellowing, use a purple shampoo and conditioner. Aveda Blue Malva shampoo and conditioner are work great!
- Medium Champagne: Skin with pink or rosy undertones works well with the beige tones of medium champagne hair. The green and blue tints in the champagne color will counteract the pink undertones of the skin. The subtle rose tint will give your tresses an eye-catching and sexy shimmer. Care for your blonde hair with the Dry Remedy line, especially their weekly masque.
- Jet Black: Jet black hair is one of the most striking colors, and it typically works best on darker skin tones, unless of course you’re going for a real statement. In that case, lighter skin tones can make jet black work, too. To make even more of a statement with your black hair, ask for blue or violet undertones and you will see those colors shine through in the sun! Protect your color with Aveda’s Color Conserve line.
- Reddish Cinnamon: Reddish cinnamon hair works on cool skin tones. Be extra careful with this one, though, because it can fade quickly. Be sure to use color treated shampoo, and try to wash your hair as little as possible to keep the color vibrant. Use Aveda’s Damage Control spray will protect your hair from heat damage, as well as protecting your color from harmful UV rays.
