So the result is always the most flattering for you and you will be radiant. Pay attention to this OneHowTo article and discover how to choose hair colour according to your skin tone.

¿Warm or cool skin?

The first step in choosing hair colour is to determine your skin tone and find out if it is cold or warm. But how to do it? It is simple, there are several tricks but here we show you a technique that can easily be done at home and in just a moment.

To do this you must take two accessories, either necklaces or bracelets, one in silver and one in gold and stand in front of the mirror. Now, bring both accessories to the face to compare. If you see the that the silver accessory gives luminosity and suits you well, then your skin is cold. But if the silver dulls you and the gold lightens and gives you a better look then your skin will be within the warm tones.

Warm skins are characterized by golden hues or yellows and tan easily in the summer. If this is your case take note to find the most suitable hair colour:

- Hair colours to avoid: Ash blond, since it takes the natural light off the skin.

Brunette tones will look great. Don't go too dark, but all blue and reddish based tones of brunette will give light to your complexion.
Hope this helps
