Actress Ellen Barkin has always rocked stylish haircuts throughout her career. With her oval face shape, full lips and high cheekbones, she can pull off anything from a pixie cut to long layers. She has a fair skin tone so light shades are the best option for her. When it comes to hair color, she has see-sawed between copper and light blonde, but which shade is the best one for her? Let's take a closer look.

Overall, this color looks great with her skin tone and green eyes. The blonde looks natural due to the highlights, although the gold could be toned down a bit. The wheaty blonde highlights look good with her tanned complexion and light pink lippie.
