A new year calls for new hair color! Like with any skin tone, choosing a new hair color for fair skin can be both fun and intimidating at the same time.
Before digging into the beautiful examples below, here’s a quick look at the hair colors suitable for fair skin:
If you have olive or yellow undertones, paler shades may wash you out. Choose warmer, darker blondes that will make you look and feel like sunshine!
The great thing about brown hair is that it is universally flattering but looks especially gorgeous on fair-skinned women.
You can’t go wrong with delicious coffee and mocha shades.
If there’s one thing fair-skinned beauties can pull off, it’s beautiful red hair. Again, depending on your undertones, there are many flattering shades of red that you can choose from.
Rose gold continues to rule the roost when it comes to trendy hair colors. It’s unique, downright gorgeous, and oh-so-pretty on fair-skinned girls!
Good ol’ black can seem pretty stark against your pale skin, but if you’re more of an olive skin tone, this is the way to go!
If the above shades are a bit too “regular” for your liking, why not get adventurous with dramatic pastel hair colors? Think unicorns and all things magical!
Start off by determining your undertone (read more about undertone here) as well as keeping your eye color in mind. Once you have that in place, you can choose from one of these ideas and find the one suitable for you!
