When making the switch to a new brunette haircolor, keep your skin's undertone in mind. After all, the perfect haircolor should enhance your overall look instead of competing with it. Your skin tone can give you an idea of what the surface of your skin looks like, but your undertone takes into account the subtle hints of color that lie beneath your skin. This is helpful because you can narrow down specific haircolor options that suit the small differences in your skin’s undertone and not just a broad skin tone shade.
You may already be aware that it's important to choose haircolors for your skin tone, but pairing your haircolor to your skin's undertone makes all the difference. To figure out your skin's undertone flip your wrist over and look at your veins. If you see green veins, then you have warm undertones, and blue veins indicate cool undertones. Generally, cool skin undertones should be paired with haircolors that also have a cool undertone and the same goes for warm undertones. Your undertone can guide your hairstylist because it lets them know which haircolors to avoid that could make you look tired and washed out. Before heading to your next appointment, check out your undertone to help you and your stylist find the best brunette haircolor for you.
