This fall & winter 2015, we are seeing a great mix of both natural and unnatural hair color themes. There are beautiful brunettes, brilliant blondes, and even bold blues. It is going to be a great season to add more dimension to your already existing red hair, or maybe taking the plunge for something dark and dramatic. No matter what your hair hue preference is.

Our experts will help you to determine your skin tone. This can be difficult to do on your own, but most people fall into either warm or cool tones. “One way to figure out your tone is after washing your face to remove all impurities, preferably in a well lit room with natural light, hold a yellow and red piece of paper and then a white, green, silver and blue piece of paper against your face,” says ALBERT AMIN master colorist at Albert Amin Salon. Do this separately, not at the same time! If your skin looks more flattering with yellow/red paper test, then you’re mostly in the warm family. If your skin looks best with the green/blue/ silver/white paper test, you’re mostly in the cool toned family.

Sometimes, you just need a change. Do you want to go brighter, bolder? Lighter or darker? It’s really fun to play with hair color, but it’s even better when we play to our attributes – often you find yourself asking, what is the best hair color for me? A color that looks hot on your best friend may make you look washed out, and skin tone has a lot to do with it. To help you find the best hair dye shade for you, and the exact best hair color for your skin tone, we asked the experts!

Cool tones. Look best with warm hair colors like orangish reds, golden blondes, rich honey almond browns, and chocolate brunette. Examples are Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Halle Berry and Kim Kardashian.
Warm tones. “If your skin tones are warm, then cooler hair colors are your best bet!” says Angarita. These include ash browns, beige, champagne blond, dark reds such as auburn and violet and dark cool brunettes. Kate Middleton, Miley Cyrus, Sophia Vergara, and Jennifer Aniston are all great examples.
The best way to get an accurate answer is to go to a department store cosmetic counter and ask them for your skin tone. The best place on the body to see the truest example is behind the ear (which might be easier for someone else to see).
Blondes are going from warm golds and suntanned skin to iced out, almost silvery hues against pretty pale complexions; Julianne Hough is a perfect example. “She recently went from a warmer honey color to a bold, cool silver blonde that makes both her cool skin tone and cool blue eyes pop!” says Albert Amin.
Brunettes who were once warm with caramel or golden dimensional highlights are moving towards cool chestnuts with icy brown-toned highlights. Right now, Albert is loving Carrie Mulligan’s hair. It’s a great example an icy-toned brunette that works perfectly to compliment a very pale pallor. Brunettes with an olive skin tone should steal clear of hair colors that match their skin tone and stick with a cool espresso tint that adds contrast to their darker complexion. Albert loves the contrast of Adriana Lima’s cool ebony colored hair and warm olive skin tone.

Redheads are moving away from the stark, bold reds (Christina Hendricks) and shifting to the softer and significantly warmer, rose gold color. “This color enhances the everyday strawberry blonde, creating a rich deeper hue with dimension. We’re seeing this color everywhere, from watches to handbags, and now, hair!” says Albert. Natural redheads are have a pink toned pale pallor by nature and this should be kept in mind when dying your hair this hue as could clash with darker, olive-hued skin tones.

Sombre. The ombré technique is a thing of the past, now it’s about the ‘Sombré’ technique, Albert Amin. Albert says this technique is so universal and can be used on both warm and cool skin tones; it makes for the most natural looking and effortless color that that has been gracing the heads of celebrities such as Lauren Conrad who has a warm yellow orange California sun complexion, to Brazilian model and celebrity Gisele Bundchen, who fluctuates from a cooler toned tan to a more pale hue.
