One major element many people fail to take into consideration when coloring their hair is skin undertone. Some people have warm under tones, while others have cool under tones. Skin tone and eye color are both important when it comes to finding the best hair color for dark skin and light skin. Most dark skinned women tend to have warm undertones. Those with warm undertones should select colors that are rich and warm, as cool colors will make one look washed-out. Browns, warm reds and golden highlights are the best hair colors for dark skin with warm skin tones. It is important to match the best color with your skin, because the wrong color will detract from your best features.
