By Kate on 20 February 2012
Find out which hair colors you should try if you have pale warm skin.
When you have the perfect hair color, it’s easy to create an effortless look no matter your hairstyle. Choosing what hair color is perfect for you can sometimes be easier said than done, however, and the wrong choice can bring your look down. To ensure this doesn't happen to you, remember the one golden rule – always match your color to your skin tone – and give these hair color hues a try!
Perfect Hair Color Hues: Pale Warm Skin Tone
Ash blondes and any hue that has a hint of honey in it are as warm as you should go when it comes to a blonde shade that will team well with your skin tone. Anything too golden could pick up and enhance any pink undertones that your skin may have and give you a finished result that is too warm. Balance is the key for a great blonde look.
When it comes to a brunette color though, a bit of warmth is recommended. Golden browns are your best bet when it comes to creating a striking balance with your warm skin and hair hue. How warm you should go all depends on the undertones of your individual complexion, so if you’re not sure then visit your salon for a color consultation first.
Matching a red hair color with a skin tone that tends to look very warm and pinky can be a recipe for disaster. That doesn’t mean you can’t rock a red hair color if you want to, though, the key is to find a red hair color that will work with your complexion, not against it. To achieve this, it’s best to see a professional hairstylist who can look at the undertones in your skin and recommend a cool red that will work well to harmonize with your warm skin.
