While those with pale skin may shy away from going blonde for fear it will make them looked washed out, it is actually possible to wear shades of blonde with light skin, you just need to know which blonde hair colors to choose!
Blonde Hair Color Rules for Pale Skin:
Choose a blonde hair color that matches your skin tone.
Choose a blonde hair color that will compliment your eye color and skin color depth.
How to Choose Your Skin Tone
Those with a cool skin tone will look great in silver jewelry and should have blue tinged veins (check the inside of your wrists in natural light).
If gold jewelry matches you best, and your veins look green, then you have a warm skin tone.
How to Choose a Complimentary Blonde Hair Color for Your Eyes and Color Depth
As a general rule…
If you have light skin and a light eye color > stick to blonde hair colors that are light.
If you have light skin and a medium eye color > choose blonde hair colors that are light or medium in depth.
If you have light skin and a dark eye color > any depth of blonde hair color (light, medium, dark) will look great on you.
Hair color tip: keep in mind that while your eye color can certainly be enhanced by a well chosen blonde shade and vice versa, your skin tone and what colors will suit it is the best guideline to follow when selecting a hair color.
