Cool Skin Tones
and Your Perfect Hair Color
A Celebrity Hair Secret
Wondering if you have cool skin tones?
Knowing which skin tone you have (warm or cool) can help you decide which hair color will look best on you. You have cool skintones if:
The veins in your arms look blue and your face looks best next to a blue scarf like Cameron Diaz.
If this is you and your natural hair color is one of these:
Medium ash blonde
Your natural skin color (no makeup or tan) is one of these:
Pale (pink undertones or no cheek color
Medium (with pink, golden, or no cheek color)
Very dark brown (some African Americans or Latinas)
Olive (some Asians and Latinas)
Your eye color is one of these:
Very dark brown
Dark blue or grey blue
Hazel (with white grey or blue specks)
You have cool skintones and here are some perfect hair color choices for you:
You should choose colors with the word ash or cool in them, as well as blue, smoke and moon in them.
You should avoid colors with gold, yellow, red or bronze tones in them.
You can also choose blue/red shades such as: Cherry, ruby (L’Oreal’s Midnight Ruby), garnet(L’Oreal’s Crushed Garnet) or burgundy (L’Oreal Intense Deep Burgundy or dark reddish brown)
More tips for cool skintones:
Your eyes are blue or green: You can use shades with cool and ash tones, from beige to sandy blondes to brunettes with no red undertones (like plum or burgundy).
Your eyes are hazel: Choose medium brunettes (L’Oreal Preference 5A Medium Ash Brown) and then add gold highlights.
If your skin tone is cool and you’re a natural blonde you can wear the lightest shades of blond like platinum to ash blonde. Any shades of red should be cool and clear.
