Your skin tone determines what hair color best suits you, and natural light is the key to finding that perfect color! Look at the veins in your arms in natural sunlight. If they have a greenish tint, you have a warm skin tone and should opt for warm colors. Veins that are more blue indicate a cool skin tone and suggest using a cool color.
Most hair salons have swatches from which to choose a color, but viewing a swatch in a book may lead you to the wrong color because typically, swatches are displayed on a white background. Use natural sunlight to view the swatch against your face and you will have a much better idea of the best color for your skin tone.
Summer is a great time to make a dramatic change in your hair style and color, and you’ll want to choose carefully based on both the shape of your face and your skin tone. Your stylist can help you choose the right cut and color, selecting from a variety of this season’s rich mocha and caramel colors, accented with just the right highlights.
