Choose a hair color by determining your skin tone and matching it to a range of appropriate colors. Individuals with cool skin tones should stick with cool hair colors, such as ash or light brown, and warmer skin tones should opt for warmer palettes such as golden and honey colors.

Hair color should also reflect a person's personality; for example, a vibrant or eccentric individual may want a bright and brassy red color to show off some flair, whereas a shy or reserved person may choose a warm or soft color such as a light auburn, medium brown, caramel or blond color.
