The Best Superior Preference Shade For Your Skin Tone

When choosing a new hair color, it’s important to consider your skin tone and undertones. These will play a huge role in what hues will be most flattering on you and make your color selection easier to choose. Figuring out your undertones is as easy as a flip of the wrist. Take a look at the veins on the underside of your wrist. If you have blue or purple veins, you have cool undertones. If you have green veins, you have warm undertones.

If you have warm undertones, opt for a hair color that has cool undertones. If you have cool undertones, switch up your hair with a color that has warm undertones. 

Editor’s Note: Keep in mind that playing with hair color is all about having fun and choosing what color you think is best for you. These recommendations are meant to be a guide for choosing hues that complement you best, but no color choice is a wrong one if it makes you feel good.
