Choosing the Perfect Hair Color for Your Skin Tone — Plus, Our Partnership with Trumpeting Color!

Your hair is your crowning glory. 

That means if you find the perfect hair color, not only will you enhance your features, but you’ll also boost your confidence. 

With a plethora of shades and hues available, selecting the right color that complements your skin tone can be daunting. But fear not! By understanding your skin tone and considering a few key factors, you can confidently choose the perfect hair color to suit you.

This is part of the reason why Trixies Salon & Spa has partnered with Trumpeting Color — a locally-owned business that provides color analysis. Trixies owner, Tricia, had her colors done by the founder of Trumpeting Color, Andrea Mead, and found her lovely and very knowledgeable in her craft. 

“We’ve had numerous guests ask us if we would consider offering color analysis,” Tricia said. “Well, in true Trixies fashion, we would rather collaborate and support another small business here in Iowa.”

So, through this new partnership with Trumpeting Color, Trixies Salon & Spa will refer guests to Andrea and her team. In the color analysis, clients are shown what clothing color, hair and makeup colors look most amazing on them. When you know these details, it makes shopping much easier and more enjoyable! 

Here are a few other ways to choose the perfect hair color for your skin tone: 

First Up, Understand Your Skin Tone

Before delving into the world of hair colors, it's essential to determine your skin tone. Skin tones typically fall into three categories: cool, warm, and neutral.

Cool Undertones

If your skin has hints of pink, red, or blue, you likely have cool undertones. Veins on your wrist may appear blue, and silver jewelry may flatter your complexion.

Warm Undertones

If your skin has golden, peachy, or yellow undertones, you have warm undertones. Veins on your wrist may appear greenish, and gold jewelry may complement your skin tone.

Neutral Undertones

Some individuals have a mix of warm and cool undertones, resulting in a neutral undertone. Neutral undertones allow for versatility in hair color choices.

Next, Choose the Right Hair Color

Once you've identified your skin tone, consider the following tips to select the perfect hair color:

For those with Cool Undertones

Opt for hair colors with cool undertones such as ashy blondes, cool browns, and burgundy hues. Steer clear of overly warm tones like golden blondes or coppery reds, as they may clash with your skin's natural undertones.

For those with Warm Undertones

Embrace hair colors with warm undertones like honey blondes, caramel browns, and rich auburns. These shades will complement your golden or peachy complexion beautifully.

For those with Neutral Undertones

Lucky you! You can experiment with a wide range of hair colors, from cool to warm tones. However, neutral undertones often look stunning with hair colors that fall somewhere in the middle, such as sandy blondes or chestnut browns.

Consider Your Eye Color

Your eye color can also play a role in determining the most flattering hair color. For example, warmer hair colors can make blue eyes pop, while cooler tones can enhance brown or hazel eyes.

Choosing the perfect hair color for your skin tone is not just about following trends but about enhancing your natural beauty. By understanding your skin undertones and considering factors like eye color and personal style, you can confidently select a hair color that will make you look and feel fabulous.
