Find the Best Hair Colour to Suit Your Skin Tone
Women are more and more likely to experiment and express themselves through various hairstyles and hair colours. You’ll be hard pressed now a days to find a regular lady in the street who has never woven a little hair colour into her locks.
Seasonal changes tend to bring a change in trend when it comes to hair colouring, but just because something is in vogue and on trend doesn’t mean you have to follow the styles. As with a haircut, hair colours can either flatter your face and features or make them look dowdy and washed out. So while keeping up with the latest thing in hair fashion, you need to ask if the colour that suits your friend so well, will look just as good on you. The right hair colour will brighten up your eyes and compliment your skin tone, make you look fresh, warm and positively glowing.

Secondly, you need to look at the effect that gold and silver jewellery have against your skin. If you look better in silver jewellery you have a cool skin tone, and if gold looks good on you, then you are warmer.
Another thing to consider is your eye colour. People with cool tones usually have blue, green or grey eyes with natural hair colours with blond, brown or black hair. Those with warm skin tones usually have brown, black, or hazel eyes with black, brown, blond, red, or variations of blond hair.
