If you’re quite fair, with cooler undertones (meaning you have a lot of pink, blue or red undertones in your complexion), you want your hair color to help minimize any redness in your skin. Warm or golden hair color tones look flattering on light skin with cool undertones, so go for golden blondes, warm reds or neutral brunettes that will help counter-balance your pinky skin tone and complement your face.
For warmer undertones (think hints of yellow or orange), your ideal hair color should give your skin a healthy, natural-looking flush. Go for hues that are cool, ashy or have reddish tones, like honey or strawberry blondes, golden copper, cool beige brown and rich browns.
Striking the right contrast between your complexion and hair color is key. What you don’t want is your hair color to perfectly match your skin—your features will disappear. If your skin is warm or golden, beautiful shades of mahogany or copper bring out the sunniness in your skin. For cooler skin tones, accent your pinky-blue undertones with cool red browns or icy dark browns, and rich blacks.
