Switching up your hair color is never as simple as pointing at a model on the front of a hair dye box and proclaiming, “I want that!” Either we’ve heard enough horror stories from friends, or worse, been the protagonist of our own, to know this. That’s why when you’re trying to find your best hair color, you should take in account your skin tone, color theory and even science.

BEST HAIR COLORS FOR YOUR SKIN TONE GUIDE

In fact, it’s less about the hair color you like and more about what hair color your skin likes. The perfect hair color will not only complement your skin tone and make your best facial features pop, it can also help you look years younger. Get it wrong and you could end up looking washed out, tired, unnatural and older!

This is a little known fact, even though 55% of women color their hair these days, and spend an average of $330 annually on hair color, according to a recent survey by Tresemme. “It’s a big point of confusion for a lot of consumers when they’re coloring their hair,” said Kelly Van Gogh, hair colorist and creator of Kelly Van Gogh Hair Color (who also majored in chemistry at Columbia University).

QUIZ: How Healthy Does Your Hair Look?

“The biggest rule of thumb is that your natural hair color is the shade range that you should stay within,” says Van Gogh.” Go too far outside of it and you’re likely to wind up with hair that is not only damaged and dull, but fake looking against your skintone. Why? Because though they may be completely different colors at first glance, your skin and natural hair color have the same underlying pigments.
