How To Choose The Perfect Shade Of Brown Hair Colour For Your Skin Tone

Brown hair is gorgeous. The key is to find the shade for your skin tone. If you're contemplating leaving behind your blond, black, red, blue, or pink hair for a brown hair dye, or you want to boost your natural hair colour; this guideline is for you.

How To Find Your Skin's Undertone

If you want to find your perfect brown shade, it's crucial to discover your skin's undertone. There are multiple layers of skin that give your complexion a cold, warm, or neutral tone.

Please avoid thinking that just because a person has a light skin colour, she has a cold undertone, or people with dark skin colour have warm undertones. You can have either a cold, warm or neutral tone regardless of your skin colour.

It's possible to identify your skin's undertones by following the below tips. If you have any doubt, we recommend having another opinion.

1. Examine your skin.

Place your skin in front of a mirror in a well-lighted room. Study your skin and see if your tone is yellow or blue.

People with yellow shades have a warm undertone. On the contrary, those with blue or pink shades have a cold undertone. If it's challenging for you to distinguish a particular shade, you might have a neutral undertone.

2. Review the colour of your veins.

It's possible to define your skin's undertone by studying the colour of your veins. Veins that appear blue or purple result in a cold undertone, while green means warm-toned. If you can't identify a prevalent colour, your undertone might be neutral.

3. Study your eyes.

Another fantastic method to distinguish your skin's undertone is by staring at your eyes. You have a cold undertone if your eyes are blue or green and a warm undertone if you have more brown or gold.

4. Accentuate with a jewelry.

Use your favourite silver or gold accessories and see how you look. You'll probably look better in silver if you have a cold undertone, but your skin color is warm if you look gorgeous in gold. If you look amazing in both, you might have a neutral undertone.

Now that you identify your skin's undertone, it's time to pick the perfect brown hair shade. The answer is to get a brown shade that compensates for your undertone.
