Choosing the Right Hair Color for Your Skin Tone

Selecting the perfect hair color isn’t just about spotting a trend or choosing a shade you like; it’s about finding what complements your skin tone, making your features pop and your complexion glow. At Taglio Salon, with locations in Scottsdale and Phoenix, our hair color experts specialize in finding the perfect hue for every individual. Here’s how you can choose the best hair color for your skin tone.

Understanding Your Skin’s Undertone The key to selecting the right hair color is understanding your skin’s undertone. Everyone’s skin has undertones – either cool, warm, or neutral. Cool undertones feature hints of blue or pink, warm undertones have a peach, golden, or yellow cast, and neutral is a mix of these colors.

Hair Color for Cool Undertones If you have cool undertones, hair colors that complement will usually have similar cool tones. Think ash blondes, cool browns, and even bold colors like blues and purples. One of our clients from Phoenix recently embraced a stunning ash blonde balayage that beautifully complemented her rosy complexion, creating a harmonious and striking look.

Hair Color for Warm Undertones For warm undertones, go for shades that also have a warm hue. Golden blondes, rich honey browns, and auburn reds can be incredibly flattering. We recall a warm caramel balayage we did for a Scottsdale client that not only added depth to her natural brunette but also enhanced her golden undertones, giving her an overall radiant appearance.

Hair Color for Neutral Undertones If you have neutral undertones, you’re in luck! Most hair colors will look great on you. Neutral undertones can experiment with a wide range of colors. A recent client at our salon chose a deep, rich chocolate brown that added elegance to her neutral-toned skin, proving that sometimes, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Hair Color and Contrast Contrast can also play a significant role in choosing your hair color. If you have lighter skin, going too light can wash you out, whereas deeper, richer tones can create a stunning contrast. Similarly, darker skin tones can be beautifully enhanced with both bold, lighter hues and deeper, vibrant colors.

Professional Consultation At Taglio Salon, we always recommend a professional consultation. Our expert colorists in Phoenix and Scottsdale can help you choose the best color for your skin tone, lifestyle, and maintenance preferences. They take into account not just your skin tone but also your eye color, personal style, and the health of your hair.

Remember, the right hair color can make your skin glow and your eyes sparkle. It’s not just about the change in your hair but about enhancing your natural beauty. Whether you’re considering a subtle change or a dramatic transformation, our stylists at Taglio Salon are here to guide you every step of the way.
