These Are the Colors You Should Always Wear, Based on Your Hair Color
While we don't subscribe to any set of rules when it comes to fashion, we do love highlighting our best assets.
It's no secret that certain colors look better together than others, which is why if you really want to stand out, it's a good idea to wear a shade that complements your mane. For those days you really want to stand out, below are the colors you should always wear, based on your hair color:
Platinum Blonde: Reds and Blues
Icy white platinum blonde makes a statement and looks brilliant when paired with something equally as bold. Your best look? True red or any shade of blue.
Warm Blondes: Bright, Warm Tones
Blondes tend to look best in bright, uplifting tones. Think yellows, oranges and rust, as well as soft warm neutrals like cream, taupe and beige.
Light Brown: Saturated Colors
For light brown babes that air on the ashier side (ie. cooler tones), reach for saturated shades instead of pastels. Since your hair is a neutral color, all will work with your hair color as long as they have more pigment.
Brunettes: Jewel Tones
It's hard to find a color that looks bad on a brunette, but for a truly stand-out look, reach for any jewel tone. Jewel tones include emerald, navy, amethyst and canary yellow—all of which will look stunning on you.
Warm Brunettes: Olive and Deep Purple
Warm brunettes who live in the auburn and chestnut arena have one color that truly makes them look incredible: olive! Deep purple is a close second—both of which will enhance the warmth of your rich shade.
Cool Brunettes: Chocolate Brown, Charcoal Gray and Navy
Cooler brunettes who have ashier tones with no warmth look best with equally cool colors like chocolate brown, gray and navy. These tones complement your mane and will make you pop.
Black Hair: Red, Blue and Purple
Raven-haired gals already have the darkness, so they look gorgeous when they play up really splashy colors like rich red, cobalt blue and bright purple.
Redheads: Green and Ivory
It's no secret that redheads look marvelous in green. After all, it really does make red hair pop. Ivory is another ravishing shade that provides incredible contrast—and in the neutral category, you can't go wrong with an earth tone.
