Hair colour plays a huge part in colour analysis and is something many people don’t understand. If you get it wrong it can make a big difference to the overall effect, even if you are wearing the correct colours. Here are my top tips on matching your hair colour to your skin tone.

When I start with any colour analysis session I pull all the hair away from the face, so I can concentrate on the skin colour. So many ladies now do colour their hair and so it is best not to take that into consideration. Through using several different coloured drapes, I determine whether my client has a warm or cool skin tone. Having done that I decide what level of colour works best for the client. It’s like using a dimmer switch of colour from bright through to soft and muted. A colour session takes on average one and a half hours. For full details on what it entails please visit my website

If you go to a good hairdresser, they will know all about warm and cool skin tones. They should be able to advise you on the correct colours and tones that will work for you. If you get it right, it will enhance your look and work well with the colours you are wearing.

The most common mistake I find is ladies with a warm skin tone dying their hair a cool, very dark brown or black. Or, cool toned ladies putting warm highlights in their hair. Another one to be very careful about is Red. There are so many tones of red warm and cool so you do need to get it right. So, it is important to be mindful of any colours you are adding to your hair.

What happens if you let your hair naturally turn grey?

This is a personal preference, but for some ladies going naturally grey can look stunning. All I would say is that our skin tone remains the same but can fade a little as we age. To compensate this, make sure that you wear some colour. You may decide that as you age you turn down the dimmer switch of colour and choose more muted shades of the colours you used to wear. I saw this sign outside a hairdressers and is sums it up perfectly.

Your hair style is an outfit you wear every day, so it is worth spending the time and effort to get it right.

The same goes for your make up

Cool skin toned – Choose a pink shade of blusher

Warm skin toned – Choose a peachy shade of blusher

If you go to any reputable make up counter they will be able to advise you on the correct colours to choose, this goes for all your makeup, foundation and the colours you wear on your eyes.

I hope I have given you some ideas on how to match your hair colour to you skin to get the WOW factor.  Just bear in mind that your hair colour should work with your skin tone. Cool skin tone adds cool colours. Warm skin tone had warm colours. I personally have a warm skin tone and have added warm blond tones with some copper ones to highlight my mousy blonde that is now turning grey.  If you need any help or advise do get in touch, I would love to hear from you.
