In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the intricacies of matching hair colors to different skin tones, helping you make a choice that brings out your natural beauty.


1. Identifying Your Undertone:

   Begin by determining whether your skin undertone is warm, cool, or neutral. Warm undertones have hints of yellow or peach, while cool undertones lean towards pink or blue. Neutral undertones are a balance of both.

   - Golden blondes

5. Consider Your Eye Color:

   Take into account your eye color when choosing a hair shade. Certain colors can enhance and complement your eyes, creating a harmonious overall look.


6. Skin Tone and Lifestyle:

   Consider your lifestyle and maintenance preferences. If you prefer low-maintenance options, choose a color that grows out seamlessly with minimal upkeep.


7. Test with a Semi-Permanent Color:

   Before committing to a permanent color, experiment with a semi-permanent gloss or a few clip-in extensions a to see how the shade looks against your skin.


8. Schedule a Consultation:

   When in doubt, stop by the suite for a complimentary consultation! We can analyze your skin tone, discuss your preferences, and recommend a color that suits you best.


9. Maintaining Hair Health:

   Regardless of the color chosen, prioritize hair health. Regular conditioning treatments and minimizing heat styling contribute to the longevity and vibrancy of your chosen shade.


Choosing the right hair color for your skin tone is a personal journey that involves understanding your undertones, considering lifestyle factors, and experimenting with various shades. Armed with this ultimate guide, you're well-equipped to make an informed decision that not only enhances your appearance but also aligns with your unique style and personality.
