Hi! I am having trouble figuring out what my skin undertone is: cool, warm, or ruddy? I always thought that since I have freckles and my natural hair color is reddish, I must be warm. But, the veins on my wrist are blue and I noticed on the test here that you can also be ruddy which is cool undertones with freckles! I am so confused! I posted a gallery on my profile page with several pics of me with my natural hair color and a few others. Can someone please tell me what my coloring is. Also, I (and my hubby) want to try going very blond. I don't know if that is suitable for my coloring though and if so, which shade and how bright can I go? As a child, I was a "tow-head", I had very blond hair. It changed darker as I grew older. Thank you so much! Sherrie1984

Hi Sherrie, judging by your photos and the description you've given, I'd say that your skin tone most resembles ruddy. If you have freckles, pink undertones (which are obvious in your photos) and blue veins then a cool, ruddy complexion seems most likely. Seeing a hair colorist in person can of course confirm this and also give you a definite answer. As for wanting to try a blonde hair color, having a cool complexion means that light blonde hair colors such as platinum and light ash blonde will suit you. Ask the colorist when you see them what they would recommend is a good color against your skin tone. Seeing a professional, especially when going blonde, means that you can also have the color tailored to suit you. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.
