Many a time people end up coloring hair in a shade that simply goes wrong with their complexion. Mind well, that a wrong hair color can instantly ruin your looks. While some pick hair color matching with eye color, some pick those closer to original hair color. But let me tell you that choosing hair color based on skin tone is very essential to get a charming appearance. Here I give you some tips on choosing hair colors for cool skin tones.
What is a Cool Skin Tone?
The term 'cool skin tone' basically refers to a skin type with blue undertones. There are a few easy steps to determine your skin tone. Check the veins on inner side of your hands, especially the upper arm. If these appear blue, you have a cool skin tone. If these are greenish you have a warm skin tone. You can also recognize your skin tone by holding a white t-shirt under your clean and dry face. If your face reflects blue color, you have a cool skin tone. If it reflects yellow color, you have a warm skin tone.

Those with cool skin tones have advantage of wearing bright and gaudy colors. Those flashy shades look quite well on cool skin tones. Shades of pink look quite complimenting on this skin tone.
