When it comes to hair color the choices are pretty much infinite, but of course there will always be some colors that will compliment you better than others especially when it comes to having darker skin tones. Which is why picking the right color is super important!
But honestly, no matter what your skin tone is, you could still do whatever color you wanted, if you rocked it with enough confidence, you can pull anything off. (I mean you have to wear the color, it shouldn’t wear you!).
Still though there are some hair colors that undeniably will always look good on darker skin tones, and I’m pretty sure we all know them. There’s burnt orange, which is a stunning color in and of itself but also makes for such a stunning hair color on darker skin tones!
And of course the brown ombre is a classic (you know the brown or black hair with the lighter tips). That hair color is failproof for literally everyone and not just us with darker skin!
But the color that also surprising never fails to look good on dark skin tones is… pink! I know, pink is a super bold option but for sure if you take the plunge, you can be sure that you will look darn good!
All in all there are so many options to choose from and if I tried to mention them all we’d be here all day. But despite all that I did manage to round up some pretty amazing hair color options so hopefully this post will help to make that choice easier!
